This game is awesome!
I've been a follower of the SWAT series since SWAT 2 (a top-down real time tactics game) and it's still pleasing! SWAT 3 is obviously inspired by Rainbow Six (which came out about a year before) but is more focused on Close Quarters Battle and on authentic gameplay. For instance you shouldn't kill everyone who's armed, instead tell them to drop the gun, arrestread more and report and in case a kill is necessary you have to report the victim, also there are non-lethal weapons in case you can't use lethal force in a certain mission.
The graphics aged a little but the game's little over a decade old and still looks quite acceptable.
Over all this game is great. If you like a good Tactical FPS give this one a try! $10 is an absolute steal!

Exquisite game

One of the finest tactical squad-based sims ever. Easily as good as the (real) Rainbow Six titles and I prefer it ever-so-slightly to the oft-lauded and also excellent SWAT 4, since they are virtually identical mechanically and the TGOTY edition has more missions.
I own 2 physical copies already, but I'm buying again.

Must have!

One of the best FPP games (not simple shooters!) I've ever played. Try to arrest someone - it's more challenging than killing whole army of stupid aliens ;)
