    Hey there!

    Once upon a time I got a game from the son of a friend of my dad. It was a tactical simulation game, or whatever it's supposed to be called. I want to find it again.

    For some reason, i think it was a JoWood game, but haven't been able to find it.
    You were some secret agent, I think, and it was point-and-click styled real time until a fight occurred, when it went turn based. Pretty much like the newer Ufo titles.

    I only played it briefly because it was hard for me when I was younger, but it's not THAT old. Had alright graphics, and I think it was set in an urban environment.

    Any ideas? Anything you want to know that might help?

    Sounds a bit like Syndicate, but that was never turn based...

    But it is not. The last syndicate game before the 2012 reboot was from 1996. This game is from... I would guess after 2002 at least.

    There seems to be a lot of games like you're describing that all fall under the same general description. Could it have been one of the early Fallout games? Do you perhaps have a rough estimate of what year/age you were when you played the game?

    Nope, sorry. Unfortunately not.



    Yeah I know, I've been searching sporadically for the last 6 months or so. It's not the early Fallout games either.
    Time has passed so quick lately so I have no idea when this was. I do however remember that I at the same time got Shadow of Memories, and that game felt dated at the time. So at the earliest 2002 / 2003.


    And the perspective wasn't constant I THINK. It was like the screenshot I posted earlier, simple 3D graphics, like the sims, ufo aftermath etc. Not like Fallout, Syndicate and Jagged Alliance.

    I've found the game! However I was wrong, it was not turnbased. It was (just like Jagged Alliance) real time all the way.

    Cold Zero: The Last Stand, from 2003.


    So this is resolved, thanks for the help guys! :)
