Test your strategic skill in Central Intelligence, a game that mimics realistic CIA missions and situations. Step carefully to achieve objectives in one of three areas such as "Propaganda," "Military," and "Political."
A strategic game of espionage and undercover operations with a lot of political undertones. You play a CIA chief sent to the island of Sao Madrigal, which is currently under a dictatorship. This dictatorship is supported by the Chinese government and it seriously jeopardizes the U.S.A.'s interests on the region, thus it is your mission to organize the recuperation of democracy, by any means necessary.
You have at your disposal a series of CIA agents divided in three branches: Political, Propaganda and Military. But the object of the game is not to organize a military uprising, but instead to support and organize the island's many opposing factions (like angry students, guerrillas, political parties,etc.) against the dictatorship (with or without their knowledge of your interventions) via propaganda, bribes, subterfuge, assassinations, blackmails, etc.
The main interface consists of a top-down satelite image of the island from where you can zoom in on any building, and from where you dispatch your agents and access the relevant information on each and every building on the island (provided you spy them).
The game runs against a real-time clock as you have a time limit to depose the dictator, but you can select the speed at which the game counts the hours and days, as well as the overall difficulty of the game, by selecting among a set of options that regulate the population's overall loyalty towards El Dictador.
Central Intelligence is a game of strategy and espionage, based on the fictional island of Sao Madrigal, off the coast of Brazil, which is currently run by a corrupt dictatorship. This dictatorship is supported by the Chinese government and, as a result, damages the U.S.A.'s interests in the region. You play as a CIA chief, tasked with restoring democracy by any means necessary.
You are presented with a satellite overview of Sao Madrigal, and after a few clicks you can see the current leanings of the people in certain areas, represented by blue (opposition party, your side) or red (dictatorship's side). You can also monitor the situation regarding the country's students, the opposition party, the rebel group, government prisoners, as well as a list of agents you've lost in the field.
On the satellite map, you can zoom right out and see the whole island, or zoom in to individual buildings, and see who lives there, who is currently in the building, and what kind of materials are stored there, if any.
Your tools of restoring democracy include a series of CIA agents, divided into three branches: Political, Propagandist, and Military. Political agents handle bribes, or spying, or other things. Propaganda agents can be used to print newspaper articles, hijack a TV show and spread the good word, or leave leaflets everywhere for the citizens to look at. Military people can be used to assassinate, sabotage, or supply arms to the rebels! However, the game is not about just preparing a military uprising - it's about coordinating all the opposition members to restore the country; via propaganda, bribes, subterfuge, assassinations, and blackmail.
The game runs in real-time, and you only have a certain amount of time to dispose of the dictator, but you can adjust the game speed. There are other difficulty options you can adjust, such as the population's loyalty towards the dictator.
All in all it's a fun, immersive game, and easy to play once you get the hang of it (which was the only problem I had in playing it). To perform an action, you must select your agent, select the building you want them to go to (on this large island) then select the action you want them to perform, which can get confusing at times.
Other than that minor issue, the game is definitely worth playing. It has very nice graphics, and smooth gameplay.
