About This Game

Experience the dramatic intensity of the frontlines of a war through the eyes of the first of a new breed of super soldiers in this gritty and epic first-person action game.

An augmented super-soldier must stop a renegade regime from eradicating the civilized world.

Hong Kong, 2065. 2nd Lt. Nathan Frost is just a regular grunt in an international army called the Liberty Coalition. When he takes massive injuries from an explosion on the battlefield, Frost undergoes an experimental procedure. The outcome of the surgery is something more than human; a transformation that makes him a unique weapons-grade warrior, with abilities that far surpass those of the average soldier.

Empowered with these extra-normal abilities via implanted augmentations, Frost is immediately sent to the frontlines of a war as a secret weapon against the destructive regime. Stranded in hostile territory, cut off from command and far outnumbered, Frost and a handful of men must try and stop the entire renegade militia's plan threatening to plunge the world into darkness.

  • Engage in battle online multiplayer with up to 16 players & voice over IP support in classic and new multiplayer modes.
  • A wide variety of game pacing ranges from the frenetic chaos of battlefield action to tactical stealth infiltration style missions.
  • Equip yourself with an arsenal of experimental weaponry such as the Riot Wall™ and Attack Drones, and other high tech gadgetry. Used in combination, the equipment yields a variety and depth of gameplay never before realized, especially in multiplayer play.
  • In multiplayer, vehicles are co-operatively used; one guy drives while the other mans the mounted turrets.
  • Augmentations such as Invisibility, Reflex Boost and Electrical Storm give you an edge on the battlefield against your highly equipped and battle-ready foe.
  • Pick-up & play, visceral action pulls the player through a cinematically immersive storyline from Minute One of play.
  • 11 missions spanning across 16 maps including the Opera House turned Prison, a Buddhist Temple converted to a Military Base, and the sprawling urban Wastelands.

NOTE: I did not attempt the multiplayer, please take that into account.

Set in the future, and originally intended as a spin-off of Deus Ex: Invisible War, Project: Snowblind shares many similarities with that game.

Focusing almost exlusively on shooting (i.e. gunplay), you are boosted with a handful of augmentations. While the game is nowhere near as complex as a Deus Ex game, in terms of choices, alternate paths, etc., this game places far more emphasis on shooting, as one would expect.

Not the longest, and certainly not the prettiest game out there, Project: Snowblind is nevertheless a fun and enjoyable ride, with a well-weighted ramp up in difficulty as you progress. If you enjoy FPS games, give this one a try. With the multitude of guns, alternate fire modes and more, you will have a good time.

If you are playing on a widescreen monitor (and who isn't these days?), I followed the below guide (all credit for guide goes to OP):

This is a surprisingly good game all things considered. Yes, its a bit too short for my liking but most fps games are. If you looking for an fps game with a bunch of options with weapons and equipment then this game is for you. Plus at only a 1.50 on sale, its a steal. The game crashes a bit but not enough to ruin it since the game loads quickly too. The game has a surprisingly good amount of cutscenes. I guess this isn't too big of a surprise from the Eidos and Tomb raider family. A good game, not a great game but a good one.

One of the best older FPS-games I ever played, due to the sheer number of weapons and attacks, ways to kill the enemys and deal with the missions it is nearly a sandbox game but gets really hard later on and challenges the player. Rarely had this much fun with an older FPS in recent years, worth the exploration, time and money!

spiritual successor of deus ex made for consoles (ps2 xbox), its basically deus ex without any of the rpg elements

augments thanks to NANO TECHNOLOGY are in, every gun with alt fire is in, different approaches to scenarios are in, hacking is kinda a thing

its pretty fun and a not complete ♥♥♥♥ PC port, has multiplayer but i haven't touched it
obviously dated graphic wise but what are you expecting m8
