What if James Bond quit the service, 'M' couldn't be trusted, and 'Q' worked for the bad guys?
Shadowforce Archer rips back the shroud of conspiracy that has penetrated the highest levels of government for over fifty years, unleashing a thrilling combination of high-octane movie action, psychic spies, mystic artifacts, and ultra-national villain organizations, poised to dominate the entire world, or leave it a pile of smoking ash. You play a shadow operative of the vast Archer Conspiracy, charged with secretly keeping the world safe . . . from itself. But a superspy's life is never simple. Now, at the dawn of a new millennium, the Archer Conspiracy faces its greatest challenge - threat from within its own ranks. With its technical wizards gone rogue and Control de-stabilized, no one can be trusted and no place is safe. Are you ready to face the greatest threat the world has ever known?
