This review is from: Cold Winter (PS2) (Video Game)
Not being of the kind to be glued to the PS2, this has taken a couple of months to play. And it must be said, it is good fun, although I found it pretty easy. There are arrows to tell you where to go next; renewable health at no penalty, and body armour that takes a lot of punishment before putting you in trouble. It's certainly easier than Castle Wolfenstein, and far less complex than Deus Ex to play. There is no interaction with characters required as it is linear (other than killing most of them, of course), no bonus points to collect so no incentive to do extra tasks, and even the end is routine.
The point is though, that the game is what it claims. A story spread over several missions, and your job is to do various tasks while finding ways to delete the enemy. If you are looking for no more than that, it is perfect. And, for those who enjoy Tom Baker's acting, he is featured throughout.
All in all, this will keep you absorbed, but you may feel it could have been more challenging.
