The first-person shooter SKILL – Special Force 2 is set in the not-too-distant future. The world has slipped into another Cold War, and a nuclear war is just one political crisis away. As though the tense political climate wasn’t enough, aliens have arrived on Earth and are trying to win control over the world. Players are thrown right into the mix, as they slip into the role of an elite soldier who is battling it out against other players in heated combat. They will represent the nation of their choice and eliminate inimical units and take control over important bases.
SKILL features several game modes that challenge players in a variety of ways. In “Blasting” two opposing teams battle it out against each other. The attacking team’s goal is to plant a bomb at one of two targets. If the bomb explodes, the attackers win a point, if the defending team can defuse it, they win a point. The “Single” game mode in SKILL places more importance on individual skill. All players fight against each other. The soldier with the highest score at the end wins the match. The same rules apply to “Team Deathmatch”, but instead of each player fending for themselves, two teams go up against each other. Teamwork is also important in “Seizure” where one team tries to collect specific information in the enemy area and bring it to their home base, while the opposing team tries to defend their data. The “Party” game mode is much more lighthearted. Two teams are up against each other. All players are only equipped with pistols, and they are placed on glass platforms. Each team’s goal is to shoot the glass platforms to make their opponents fall.
