Razor Kane is a journalist with an edge, or three. Having been kicked out of the CIA for his ‘extracurricular’ activities, Razor is now writing articles about his exploits for all the readers back home. Razor Kane is as much a newsman as Indiana Jones is an archaeologist. Part investigative journalist, part thrill seeker and adrenaline junky, Razor always ends up in the middle of the action, in whatever remote country he may find himself in, which is usually one where the alcohol flows and exotic, friendly women are plenty.
This time Razor penetrates the dark depths of the Former USSR to hunt down a group of communist hardliners who are plotting to threaten world peace. Razor will fight and match his wits against the enemy in environments like Chernobyl, Mausoleum, a notorious KGB prison and some of the most well-known and symbolic places of the former Communist rule. This is the world behind the ‘Iron Curtain’, a world of a totalitarian Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War.
Razor has to draw upon all his skills and experience for this challenge. Stealth plays a leading role: Razor has to move quietly and deliberately; slip behind enemies unnoticed; duck for cover behind objects; and hide in the shadows. He can disable alarms, pick locks or confound security cameras. When in a tight spot, he is good with a gun, but usually outfoxing the enemy is the best way to succeed. Players match physical strength and wits against the powerful Russian enemy in stunning real-world environments from the former U.S.S.R.
With a strong espionage/stealth style, the game offers realistic AI enemies and missions based on real-world events. Gamers will accomplish objectives in multiple ways; locating hidden paths and combining in-game elements to create weapons and traps, silently eliminating opponents.
