24: The Game – Another one of those days for Jack Bauer…

L.A. is under attack. Thousands of lives hang in the balance. For Agent Jack Bauer, it’s going to be another one of those days.

experience a typical day in Agent Jack Bauers life

This game is based between seasons two and three of the hit TV show 24. It explains to fans of the show how Agent Jack Bauer first meets Agent Chase Edmunds. The story line is written by a 24 show writer, and is produced collaboratively with much of the TV show’s cast and crew.
The graphics are excellent and the game is full of action.
You get to play as Agent Jack Bauer, Agent Chase Edmunds, Agent Tony Almeida, Michelle Dessler, and Kim Bauer throughout the story.
There are a wide range of tasks such as shoot-outs, interrogations, car chases, and computer hacking. You can’t get bored with it.
Even the famous split-screens and the ticking clock are brought to life in this game.

Each level is ranked out of 100%, which extends the life of the game. Once you have completed it you get an overall grade, as well as a grade after each mission. This means that once you have completed it once, you have something to work on next time you play, i.e. getting a better score.

It’s surprisingly addictive playing the game 2,3 or even 4 times to try to get that lucrative grade A which is Special Agent.

High grades (over 90%) are rewarded with unlocked bonuses. These include various pictures of the cast, as well as 5 cast interviews.

This is an excellent opportunity for 24 fans to experience a typical day in Agent Jack Bauers life. It’s also great for fans to see how Agent Chase Edmunds and Chloe O’Brian first have contact with CTU Los Angeles.

Roll on the sequel!!!

The Good: The graphics are excellent in that the characters look exactly like who they are supposed to be. The main characters are voiced by the show’s actual actors.
The Bad: Trying to get 100% on every mission can become quite frustrating.
