In Cold Blood
is kind of a cross between many games. It has the look and feel of Resident Evil
, interaction with the environment and puzzle solving like Tomb Raider
, and the covert feel of Metal Gear Solid
(going undetected is essential). In other words, In Cold Blood
will have your mind running at 110% trying to figure out what to do next, while avoiding conflicts with the bad guys by waiting for the opportune time to sneak up behind them to knock them out. Hint: Only fire when fired upon!!!
Get ready for a great balance of action and mind-tingling adventure. The basic premise is that you are British Agent John Cord, infiltrating the enemy concentration camps, trying to help the Americans and your friend Kiefer at the same time. Your goal is to collect info, save the day, and make it back alive. (How's that for vague? Can't spoil it, now can I?). To do so, save often, and don't overwrite your previous save (just in case you need to go back and do something over again). In Cold Blood has multiple save 'slots' just for this purpose.
In Cold Blood has got many situations in which one wrong move is a matter of life and death, literally. If you choose to rush into a room with guards, you're dead. However, using patience, you may find out that after they are done talking, the guards will leave or turn their backs to you, allowing you those few crucial seconds to take them out one at a time. I LOVE THIS GAME! Many adventure games fill you with a load of info when talking to neutral characters, and In Cold Blood is no exception. The difference is that most of the info is very important, so pay attention, and you may just come out alive.
