BLACK - PlayStation2 - Xbox
Release Date: 24th February 2006
Black is a fresh and unique take on the first-person shooter. Moving away from the covert and simulation obsessed games of recent years, Black delivers intense action gun fights by identifying the key components of great Hollywood shoot-outs and recreating them as a game. The peerless fire-and-effect experience will revolutionise video game shooting.
With the odds stacked heavily in the enemy's favour, the player can only succeed by learning a new style of attack.... be bold, be aggressive and use the physical environment as an ally. In Black, it's not just who you shoot, it's what you shoot. Signs, walls, statues, doors, ceilings, and windows can all be destroyed to surprise, stun, wound or kill your enemy – with devastating results. Every bullet has an impact, every impact has an effect.
• Playable Hollywood shoot-outs: the most destructive fire fights
• The defining video game shooting experience
• Signature Kills: unique gameplay that allows players to use explosive worlds and objects against their enemies
• Clandestine war: OVERT not covert operations. In the real world of Black operations, there's no time for stealth.
What's it about? A black operative is sent to eliminate an American agent overseas.
The Best Shooting. The most destructive gun fights ever seen in a video game. Everything in the environment is affected by gunfire.

Four Guns are Better than One. Added firepower and communication heighten the intensity of battle with the player supported by three highly trained specialists.
