The Sum of All Fears is the latest strategy-action game from Red Storm, developers of all the previous award-winning games that were based on the novels of Tom Clancy, such as Ghost Recon and Rogue Spear.
With a release date to tie in with that of the film, the game closely follows its plot, which goes like this. On New Year's Eve, a band of renegade militia members from the hills of West Virginia seize a television station and broadcast their demands on the air. The FBI's Hostage Rescue Team is subsequently called in to deal with the situation. But this is only the first in a series of events that will take the team members from the mountains of West Virginia to the diamond mines of South Africa, and from the deserts of the Middle East to the corridors of power and wealth in Austria. At stake is the future of the free world, as terrorists unleash the most destructive weapon known to mankind.
In the game, you lead a team of domestic counter-terrorism experts through 11 dangerous mission that span the globe. Formed from the elite of the FBI's HRT, you have been trained to perform covert ops in the most dangerous circumstances imaginable. As the commander of this team, you lead your unit into the heat of battle, performing missions ranging from eliminating terrorists to planting bugs, and from destroying illegal weapons caches to rescuing hostages.
