S.K.I.L.L. – Special Force 2 is a first-person shooter created by Gameforge. It is the first time Gameforge ventures into this kind of genre as their normal lineup consists of fantasy titles.
The game offers many aspects of the classic FPS genre. Players can join clans. They can participate in fights, either alone or with their friends. They have to get weapons to fight their enemies and at the end grab their rewards. Gameforge keeps its games rather in the traditional way and focusses more on providing different game modes to the players.
When the player joins he sees the following menu points: career, clan, mini-game, inventory, shop and capsule market. While clan, inventory and shop are self-explanatory, the others might need a little description. Career is a tab where the player can check his progress and statistics. There is also an overview with information about all acquired weapons. Mini-games are rather misleading as it is only a testing ground where players can also spawn dummies and test weapons and tactics. Last but not least, the capsule market is a place where players can buy little capsules that contain a random item. Those items can’t be influenced and it is sheer luck to get a specific item there.
The main focus of S.K.I.L.L. – Special Force 2 is the wide variety of game modes:
Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch: Well known match for everyone that plays shooters. But S.K.I.L.L. also offers a hardcore mode, where one shot is enough to kill someone.
Survival: It is a co-op mode where players have to withstand the attacks of insect-like, creepy aliens.
Defence: This is a co-op mode where the player has to defend some kind of nuclear reactor against multiple waves of aliens.
Seizure: It is a capture the flag style mode.
Escape: A team has to activate some radio stations and escape the area, while the other team tries to kill them before they manage to escape.
Blasting: A team must place the bomb and the opponents have to stop them or defuse the bomb in time.
Party modes: This is where S.K.I.L.L. – Special Force 2 tries to offer something truly unique, and manages to do that with some crazy game modes: in Manhunt, one team of players will take the role of the aliens and try to hunt the humans, while the other team will play as the soldiers that have to kill all the aliens. There are three different types of aliens to use, including a kamikaze one which explodes after a sprint. Glass is probably one of the craziest game modes: players are in an arena composed of different floors entirely made of hexagonal glass pieces. The player can shoot his enemies or shoot at the glass under their feet to break it and make them fall to the bottom, under which there is just death.
