In this hectic action game you must help a knife-wielding soldier infiltrate enemy territory in order to rescue some POWs. Grab any weapons you find along the way but you will mainly rely on your trusty knife for this mission. Get moving! Those hostages are not getting any better by you slacking off! :)
