Bloody fun, bloody easy, and bloody short.
It may be damning with faint praise to say SAS: Secure Tomorrow is leagues better than the patently awful Sniper: Art of Victory. It is that much better, and it certainly should do the trick for tactical shooter newbies without a lot of cash to burn. Still, it is not without its foibles, and it's both too easy and too short. Judge accordingly.
The cutscenes and peripheral features go beyond those of typical budget games, but there's no forgiving a two-page manual and no printed list of commands.
The level of detail is high, the lighting is beautiful, and the environments and animations are varied.
From gunfire to voice acting to the painful moans of dying bad guys, SAS sounds great.
Shooter addicts will already have much better games in their arsenal, but rookies and less demanding players should enjoy it.
Lasting Appeal (3/10)
The game is too short, and for most, too easy. Multiplayer helps, if you can find someone who wants to play.
