As part of an elite team of freedom fighters known as Fire Blade, players must halt the progress of terrorist cells positioned around the world using an attack helicopter armed with the latest in advanced technology. The game is divided into four multi-level campaigns: Mountains of Switzerland, South American Desert, Latin America, and Arctic Circle. Missions involve a mix of search-and-destroy, defense, and stealth operations against artillery, infantry, armored vehicles, and both naval and air forces. Radar is available at the top of the screen to help players find enemy targets while navigating the terrain from a third-person perspective, but a more detailed overhead map can also be accessed to review objectives, whether it's destroying a bridge to stop a terrorist advance or defending headquarters from oncoming threats. Completing a mission lets players view a summary screen of how many kills were recorded and whether a gold, silver, or bronze medal was earned for their performance.
