PC game – 2007/ Massive-scale terrorism has returned to American soil, with a vengeance. Without the bravery and expertise of the U.S. National Guard, the outcome will be truly disastrous. Through first-person shooter styled play, gamers assume the role of a National Guard serviceperson to help disarm a series of devastatingly powerful bombs that have been set to go off simultaneously in cities across the country. The game’s nine levels include familiar locations such as shopping malls, condominiums, and residential neighborhoods, where suicide attackers and desperate hostage-takers could be waiting around any otherwise-mundane corner. Patriot was developed by 4D Rulers Software with a keen perspective on its subject matter; project lead Joel Huenink served in the National Guard for eight years.
