The waning years of the 21st century saw the world plunged into strife and unrest on an unimagined scale. The third global war ravaged cities and buried the earth beneath mounds of rubble and radioactive fallout. As natural resources were depleted and nations thrown into utter destitution, the conflict slowly wound down. When the dust settled it was clear that a new power had emerged victorious. A conglomerate of multinational corporations had acquired colossal wealth and influence by supplying the warring fractions with all manner of weapons and instruments of annihilation.
At first, humankind welcomed the stability ensured by the Corporation. After decades of constant warfare the world screamed for order and safety, which the Corporation was only too willing to supply. Slowly but surely civilization was rebuilt, at the cost of freedom and personal liberty. In the brave, new corporate world, citizens were monitored, scrutinized and controlled from the cradle to the grave. Mind-controlling drugs and a ruthless secret police made every attempt at resistance futile… or so it seemed.
Unbeknownst to the upper echelons of the Corporation, small bands of outlaws and rebels managed to see past their petty squabbles and unite into a efficient guerilla army. It was not long until war had yet again gripped the world; but this time it was a war of revolution, a war for freedom… a war for domination!
Iron Sight offers a unique blend of action, strategy and simulation. The basic premise is deceivingly simple: destroy the enemy before he has a chance to destroy you! Attack with a large and varied range of weapons and power-ups: homing missiles, artillery, satellite support, cluster missiles and much more.
Iron Sight features an advanced AI – enemies respond to the current situation, value possible threats and weather conditions to select the appropriate weapon and utilize available terrain for cover. Beginners need not worry, however, as the game offers suitable difficulty settings for both newbies and battle-hardened veterans.
The campaigns take you through many different environments, from war-torn wastelands and frozen wastes to green grassland, all littered with the remains of a shattered civilization. Two separate single-player campaigns and multiplayer over Internet or hot-seat ensures hour-upon-hour of gameplay.
