Cold War (VG)
Cold War is a video game developed by Czech developer Mindware Studios and published by DreamCatcher Games (Linux Game Publishing for Linux). The game is similar to the Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell series of games in that it uses a stealth-action system of gameplay. The game distinguishes itself by adding an item invention system where the player can use seemingly useless objects to create new tools and weapons. Also, the story of the game centers on a civilian reporter, so no extremely acrobatic moves are available to the player. Another aspect of the game is that the player can take many different approaches to winning the game.
Cold War takes place in 1986 and follows the story of a freelance journalist Matthew Carter who finds himself in the midst of an international conspiracy that aims to control the USSR.
The PC and Xbox versions received "mixed" reviews. The Linux version received more positive reviews.
The following weapons appear in the 2005 video game Cold War:
Matthew uses a Makarov PM pistol, while it is shown with a suppressor attached in artwork, in-game it can only be silenced with a Plastic Bottle Suppressor that breaks after a few shots.
Matthew and the Soviet soldiers use Kalashnikov rifles, which appear to be modernized AKS-47 variants with laser sights.
The back of the box on certain versions shows an AK-47 instead of an AKS-47 and a more accurate Makarov.
