    This is a great deal for the game and the excellent expansion. It had become really hard to find, and that was a shame.

    It's one of the best games of all time. It's also my favourite co-op game of all time. Criminally underrated and overlooked. Buy it.

    Bonus: cool interview with the devs (Paul Hellquist and Bill Gardner):

    Yes. The singleplayer campaign is great, and for that price there's no reason to not play the game.

    Absolutely. If people mention it mostly in co op context, that has more to do with what the term "tactical shooter" became since then.
    SWAT 4 was among the very last proper SP squad based tactical shooters.

    GOG also has an article on this mod called Elite Force. Looks pretty neat.

    Some proper incline to lighten up the day. I think there was some trouble getting this game on the digital market but now it's finally here. Hopefully more games currently in limbo will follow.

    Game is surprisingly popular for the kind that it is and how little you hear about it compared to R6. Youtube videos with hundreds of thousands, even millions of views.

    Anyway yeah it's one of the greats. No PC gamer should be without it. It was one of the last, grand tastes of pre-decline. In my naivete at the time I thought PC gaming would continue to deliver great tactical FPS, despite R63 on Xbox. Then Vegas happened...
