SWAT: Target Liberty review

New York is under attack... again


  • Commanding an army of three
  • Performing surgical strikes
  • Joy when assaults go as planned


  • Sluggish action
  • Fixed camera gets you killed
  • Erratic AI teammates get you killed

New York, New York… the city so nice everyone wants to blow it up. What is it with the Big Apple and game developers wanting to blast chunks out of it? This month SWAT: Target Liberty uncovers another terrorist plot to cripple the city.

On PSP though, things are done on a smaller scale. As with Guerrilla's Killzone: Liberation, SWAT switches viewpoints from the FPS perspective of the popular PC games to an isometric, top-down angle. The camera pans with the action, settling on the best view; even when you guide your team behind objects they're still visible thanks to a nifty blue outline. You won't lose NY's finest in this game.
