The stealth genre of the industry has come into its own in recent years, and many players regard Metal Gear Solid to be the leader of the pack. But in light of the recent success of Konami’s masterpiece, there are other companies that want a slice of the market. Runecraft has their own ideas about how a great stealth game can be made, and the results are shown in Spec Ops: Ranger Elite.

While Metal Gear Solid often incorporated a defensive strategy, Ranger Elite does the exact opposite, making the game more aggressive than most of its competitors. While this approach to gameplay is often more exiting and appealing, it does require lots of patience. Barging into a warehouse full of wanted criminals will only get you killed, ending your game in the process. Game levels are massively spacious, well designed, and have cleverly positioned objects that will help you form infiltration strategies. A number of weapons are available at the beginning of each mission, and must be chosen carefully. Many of the game’s weapons are tailored to suit specific levels. To give a sense of urgency and realism to Ranger Elite, some of the game objectives must be completed within a specific period of time.

As a complete game, Ranger Elite offers a varied challenge that will ultimately force you to use all of your wits and tactical abilities. Only at your best, will you have the ability to rid the world’s most feared terrorists.
