No takers there - it's Soldner - Secret Wars. I'm not a fan of shooters as a rule, but this one was promising if slightly strange. The preplaced (?) containers full of weapons put me off, but in some respects it was a worthy competitor for the original (and best?) Op Flashpoint.

You may not believe me but on the Soldner screenshot, not only is that what came to mind, I almost posted "Hey, It probably isn't it but it reminded me of something. Did anyone here play Soldner Secret Wars"?
OFP was definately better but I remember the day I bought Soldner. I remember it took forever to install and it was pretty janky if memory serves. At the time though I really loved the feel and control of parachuting and I loved the stance and animation of your soldier when wielding a knife. In fact its the kind of pose that I have always wanted to see in a special forces soldier type of game. I've always wanted to see a game have your guy hold the knife upside down and really look like an old school spec ops guy. I wish more games animated it that way. I love the hand to hand combat movements seen in movies like Remo Williams and Under Siege.
And yes it's DF-BHD. I played some of the original Novalogic DF, shooting little pixels out of watchtowers etc. But gave up fairly quickly on BHD. Too much like Space Invaders, throwing bots at you, not enough OFP-style tactical stuff, which mostly spoiled me for that sort of shooter or those on rails, though I do still very much like H&D Deluxe.
