Another game from the master, Sid Meier! This time he directs his attention to the world of special agents. In Covert Action you are an agent working for the American government: Your job is to eliminate threats from terrorist groups, criminal cartels and other organizations that are bent on making the world a warzone. You are given full authorization to do what you feel is best, so the game can be played from different angles every time.
Since most of your jobs are hidden from the public, it is your duty to do all the dirty work yourself. This includes espionage, car chases, phone-tapping, decoding messages, and so on. Every part of the game is challenging and will keep you on your toes. This game is far from easy, but still it offers an easy-to-use console and great gameplay. Not a game to miss.
As for troubleshooting - you may find it difficult to understand how to tap a phone or how to decode a message the first time you try it, but don't worry. You will soon figure it out, and when you do, you'll be amazed at how easy it actually is.
I do not want to give away too much in this review, since being an agent is all about gathering information. So if you feel you have what it takes, then start playing. You will see that there is a lot more to the game than what I have included in my review.
Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.
