Tom Clancy has made an impression not only in the book and film worlds, but in the field of video games too. His covert-style stories, particularly Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six, have been immensely popular as video games. And as one of his most famous novels, The Sum of all Fears, hits the big screen, Red Storm has brought the interactive equivalent to PC.

There's a terrorist operation in the works, and being the elite FBI anti-terrorism team leader, you're the one responsible for bringing this global atrocity to a happy end. And just think, if it weren't for the American's no negotiation policy on terrorist matters, you wouldn't be playing this game at all. Woo-hoo!

The game has 11 exceptionally large missions for you to master. Gameplay elements include making the best use of the latest anti-terrorist weaponry, hiding from the enemy, freeing hostages, destroying illegal weapons caches and planting bugs.
