SWAT 4 / The Stetchkov Syndicate / Sheriff's Special Forces mod
I did a search for SWAT 4 in the forum and found quite a few threads but none were appropriate to bump so I'll start this new one.
I was recommended this game for its coop play by TOG Fox who, like me, is a cooperative gameplay fan. I given it a bit of a test run and I like it very much. Very intense.
Being an older game it now sells for about $20. An expansion pack was released which sells for about the same price. There was also a Gold pack which includes them both which I paid $35 for last week.
I'm new to this game but I'll try to give a brief intro for those that don't know.
Be part of a squad and use authentic weaponry and tactics in various SWAT scenarios.
In the singleplayer you lead. In multiplayer it's team based SWAT v suspects. In the multiplayer coop you can lead or be a part of a squad versus suspects.

-new missions playable in single-player, multiplayer and co-op mode
-new SWAT equipment and weapons and the addition of a melee attack

Here's a short vid of some in-game footage. I hope you sense the tension and the realism that goes behind every breach-bang-and-clear.
Not safe for work or kids

I never get bored watching that vid!
LOL moments were at the 20 and 1:05 marks with me punching the suspect in the back of the head after he taunted me and later when Fox twitched after hearing the sound of my taser only to shot and kill a subdued suspect
1:40, carcas throws a Sting Grenade then Fox get's the suspect with a Taser.. TEXTBOOK SWAT OWNAGE!

I just installed SWAT, STETCHKOV and SSF so I'll be ready to battle the bad guys with you next session. I vote for one of my custom "madhouse" missions to be thrown into the mix (you know the one Fox).
If anyone is intersted The SWAT 4 Gold Edition (includes the Stetchkov expansion) is now only $19.95 at EB.
