"Alfa" force was raised in 1974 as the elite Russian counter terrorist's unit. "Alfa" is considered to be one of the world's best Special Forces. For many years it has been standing on the forefront protecting people. There are a great number of successful operations at their expense in Afghanistan, Chechnya, Dagestan and in many other hot spots. Some operations till are kept under top secrecy. Nowadays, when the whole world faces the dreadful menace of international terrorism, the soldiers of "Alfa" keep their noble service for the good of the freeworld.
Playing "Alfa:Antiterror" you will face everyday work of "Alfa" force during one the most dramatic episodes of the counter terrorist's operation in Chechnya 2002-2004. All missions have historical counterparts and some of them were secret until recent times.
You start playing as a young officer just graduated from the military academy. His career ladder in "Alfa" will run along the dusty and fierce roads of the Second Chechen War. The commander's military jeep has been blown up near one of the Chechen's village. From that very moment you are in action.
People play the major role in the game - they are not just figures on the screen. All soldiers have real-life prototypes, of course, their names and personal data were changed with a view of secrecy. Anyway each soldier is given individual personal traits, determining his behavior and interaction with other squad members. Each character has its own skills and specialization, as it is in real "Alfa" force. All skills can be improved while playing, because Special Forces always are to go ahead of their opponents.
Owing to the help of former and acting members of "Alfa", the developers succeeded to build up the deep tactical setting. The cold calculation of every movement, steel nerves and zero emotion are necessary, because Special Forces never fight like happy-go-lucky. But the decent amount of luck and adrenaline is also required, because Special Forces are always to risk.
