Description of Midwinter

Midwinter games are good but difficult action/strategy/resource management epics that didn't do well because of the confusing game interface. Had Singleton paid more attention to the interface and overall integration of disparate elements, this series would have been a winner. Still, those patient enough to learn the games' interface will be rewarded with a compelling spy adventure that combines the adrenaline rush of James Bond movies with resource management and a richly detailed 3D gameworld.

Definitely two of the more successful cross-genre games ever made.

Fun game. I left the Americans behind in Kabul Afghanistan to be killed by the Taliban and went on vacation!

I remember lot of fun with this game even if it was quite difficult to manage the 3D view.

Gather a team? I drove straight down to the bad guys HQ and blew it up. If I ran into a bad guy vehicle, I drove around and in a circle when the enemy came into view shot him. Woot!@

Fun game still.
