Ok, this game is the "Missing" day that left us all wondering what happened during all those years that changed so much. To be honest, it didn't explain much, in fact, it kept you going with its own storyline and new way to save Los Angeles. Being Jack Bauer does rule in some levels, aside from Chase and Tony will be others to control...though not when you would expect it.
The Interrogation system is a lot of fun to mess with...of course the timer will put you under a lot of pressure which is even better. Other features like finding nodes and bombs and other CTU HQ features are also fun to m...
Outstanding presentation that emulates the television show to near perfection. Voiceovers by the majority of the television show's cast, as well as a story written by one of the writers for the show really help to cement this game's outstanding presentation.The bad:
Gameplay not nearly as good as it could have been. Its not bad enough to say that the developers just wanted a quick buck off of the license, but its not nearly as good as other games in the genre.Summary:
Any fan of 24 should play through this game at least once. It has a fantastic story, and the presentation is nearly perfect.
The gameplay issues, while a bit irritating, are not something that will keep the average gamer from finishing the game and seeing the entire story.
Movement is kinda clunky, and I found myself moving Jack, or any other character around mostly in the slower moving stealth mode, so I could keep them from going all over the place with just a nudge of the analog stick.
Gunplay is pretty good, I recommend that the aim assist be turned off from the outset, as the CPU has a b...
- Amazing presentation: just like a missing season of 24
- Fantastic plot: inventive twists and turns exactly like the show
- The full 24 cast: everyone from Jack Bauer to Adam Kaufman act their socks off
- Superb variety of missions: never repetitive
- Well-realised world: explore a full-scale city on foot or by car
- Brilliant shooting: many weapons and approaches to a situation
- Fast-paced driving: physics created for big cinematic car chases
- Hacking mini-games: not as rubbish as they sound
- Music and sound: score by Sean Callery, plenty of bangs and booms
- Not the best graphics: not terrible either, but there are better looking games out there
- No co-operative multiplayer: imagine Jack and Tony working together...?
- Not actually real time: more like 14 than 24

An anonymous phone call from a public pay booth near the Los Angeles docks informs Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) that a shipment of illegal weapons, plus a deadly ricin biotoxin bomb, has arrived. Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) leads a SWAT unit to seize the shipment and diffuse the bomb. Meanwhile, in Washington DC, DC CTU agent Chase Edmunds (James Badge Dale) is working undercover with a group of terrorists who are planning to assassinate Vice-President Jim Prescott in LA later on in the day. Blowing his cover to warn CTU in LA, he bec...
24: The Game is pretty much all story and presentation, while its gameplay falls a bit short. 24 fans will probably enjoy the game and forgive its gameplay because they'll be wrapped up in watching the story unfold and getting to play as their favourite characters. The shooting and driving is a bit clunky, though it's still playable. The camera is probably its biggest fault. The ragdoll and physics engine is really well done, it's a blast to plug an enemy with a shotgun shell and see him fly over a desk into a piece of glass, and watch the glass shatter; that's definitely a high point of th...
