Secrets of War is a top-down shooter with stealth elements set in World War II. Sneak through the nazi controlled towns and areas silently or in disguise, taking enemies one by one, or go all out and shoot your way to the mission objective. The campaign missions have co-op modes in split-screen.
It is 1943. In an attempt to turn the tides of war, the germans are developing a secret weapon, known as the Phoenix project. Your mission is to infiltrate their facilities and learn more about the project, what it is about and how to ultimately destroy it before it does any real damage.
There are two mission types that can be seen in the campaign missions: Low profile and Termination.
Low profile missions advise you to be stealthy and complete your objectives without being seen. Sneaking through camp and disposing of enemies silently is preferable.
Termination missions give you complete freedom on how you approach the objective. You are free to be stealthy or simply go in and shoot everything on site.
