Reviews

“Complexity of gameplay has become synonymous with the Microprose name, something that Covert Action has bountiful supplies of. The choice of options provide a depth of play rarely seen. A choice of four skill levels, three mission areas (Middle East, Europe of the Americas), three basic crime-orientations (espionage, international crime or terrorism) and over a dozen of enemy operatives (at least half a dozen of which will be involved with each crime), Covert Action is a game that will take many hours of play to successfully complete.”

“Apart from a fairly simplistic look, practically everything is up to the high-class standards expected from MicroProse, and it's only after really spending some time with it that you can come to appreciate the work involved.”

About This Game

Sid Meier's Covert Action - A Techno-Thriller From the Case Files of Max Remington.

In the 1990's our national nightmares are haunted by wild-eyed political extremists, greedy and ruthless drug lords, and lunatic military dictators. For too long we have felt powerless to stop them.
But now, award-winning game designer Sid Meier takes us around the globe with super-spy Max Remington to challenge these threats and neutralize their shadowy schemes of terrorism, smuggling and extortion. A seasoned veteran of modern, hi-tech undercover operations, Remington always obeys the two main rules of Covert Action: 1. Use your intelligence. 2. If Rule one fails, use your other weapons.

Game Features:

  • Intelligence: Recognize Faces, Break Codes, Unravel plots and sub-plots to determine how sub-plots fit together in the larger scheme, Decide which leads to follow, which to ignore
  • Weapons: Guns, Fragmentation grenades, Stun grenades, Remote-control bombs, Tear gas
  • World travel: 3 Continents, 50 cities
  • Variety: Work for CIA, Mossad(Israeli), MI5 (British), Unlimited number of cases to solve
  • Realism:Crucial decisions international agents face every day, cases based on today's headlines.
