Taboo subjects, crime, and immoral behavior, current problems of various kinds or crisis facing humanity or has gone through. Thus the scope and impact intensifies. In this sector if something is able to generate buzz and to talk about quite possibly be the meaning of a great success.

However there are people who show no outward signs so it is important to find a way to find out who is actually infected.

That the lives of some unhappy left up to the player to decide his fate it is common in a game, the difference here is that it is not enemies but allies. Its resolution is not a time to fall into the superficiality of shooting someone helpless simply because if, as can happen in many other games. Nor is the classic goal clearance and destruction we perform quickly ended and we left. It is more complex, the game knows this and that, simultaneously, makes the player “responsible” for this terrible task by who wields the gun that an orderly end all those lives. The “same” massive hand that one day also skewed the life of his mentor, The Boss. This last mark the protagonist of life and masterfully get that trauma pass the player reliving that unforgettable moment of Snake Eater, not just once, but several times. It’s intense because there is no cinematic moment to do the dirty work nor it is carried out by simply pressing a button as in the situation with the Boss. One by one we looking for them to end the suffering of those people; soldiers, scientists, men and women who one day swore loyalty to a cause and its leader. The same leader who now has become executioner.
