This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of Gabe Logan, a soldier who, along with his team, executes “surgical strike” missions against military targets. Players use pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, and grenades to kill enemy soldiers and complete mission objectives. Action involves sneaking around compounds and enemy facilities while initiating stealth moves on adversaries (e.g., creeping up on enemies to stab them or break their necks). Combat is highlighted by realistic gunfire, bone-crunching sounds, and groans of pain. Some sequences depict small splashes of blood as enemies are slashed or shot. During the course of the game, missions reference suggestive material and/or the appearance of female “escort” characters (e.g., “Stupid slut . . .” and “[L]ocal news reports have been following the cases of dozens of missing prostitutes . . .”). In one mission, characters discuss illegal substances (e.g., “Because they're growing . . . Drugs?”/“That's gotta be it. Weed.”). The words “b*tch,” “a*s,” and “bastard” appear in the dialogue.
