Immerse yourself in a truly epic shoot ‘em up adventure where you customize your very own soldier to become an integral part of an elite ‘black ops’ team on a series of action-packed missions. Strikeforce Heroes 2 is an awesome online shooting and military strategy game where you and your squad of highly-trained combat warriors undertake high-stakes assignments where you have to eliminate enemy forces all over the globe (and even in outer space!). You can modify your soldier’s attributes, and make him excel as an ‘Engineer’, a ‘Sniper’, a ‘General’, a ‘Mercenary, or a ‘Juggernaut’. Each specific type of soldier gives you the chance to experiment with different characteristics, features and weapons.
This highly-detailed and exciting warfare game requires deft keyboard tapping skills and expert mouse clicking abilities as you journey through a variety of difficult terrains and tricky missions. Explore a vast array of powerful weapons, plan your own unique battle strategies, and rise through the ranks to become a vital member of one of the world’s most feared and sought-after military squads. Amateurs beware – this is a highly professional team of soldiers. Only the most skilled players need apply! Now, have “you” got what it takes to join the Strikeforce Heroes?
How to Play: (Note: On some browsers, when you first click ‘Play’, the screen might say ‘rendering…please wait’ for a few seconds. After that, you may have to click ‘Play’ once again, and the game will load). There are three distinct Game Modes: Campaign, Challenges, and Custom Game. Campaign Mode features 15 increasingly challenging ‘missions’ where you have to eliminate a set amount of enemy combatants to progress. Challenges Mode has 15 different missions, but these are on an extremely difficult setting, and are only recommended for highly-skilled and experienced players. Custom Game Mode is a once-off, free-for-all level where you can choose your own game format, number of enemies, terrain, weapons etc. Ideally, you should play the first ‘Tutorial’ level on Campaign Mode in order to get to grips with the controls.
The controls are exactly the same for all Game Modes. Use the Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard to maneuver your soldier: Up Arrow / W / Spacebar = Jump; Down Arrow / S = Crouch; Left & Right Arrows / A & D = Move. To use your weapon, aim using your mouse cursor; and Left Click to shoot. Press the Q or Shift Keys to switch between weapons. Reload your weapon by pressing the R Key (your ammo is indicated in the bottom right corner of the game screen). In the bottom left corner, your ‘Health’ number is indicated next to the Green Cross icon. Once this amount reaches zero, your opponents score an elimination of you, but you ‘Respawn’ after a few seconds.
Your goal in each level is to eliminate a specific amount of enemy soldiers (this amount is shown on the level select screen before you begin). Your team have blue nametags above their heads, while the enemy forces have orange nametags above theirs. You can see how many opponents your team has eliminated in the top left corner of the game screen (your team’s score is indicated by the blue bar, the enemy’s score is the orange bar). Go Soldier!
