Gameplay

The Sum of All Fears uses a significantly simplified version of the gameplay seen in the Rainbow Six series. There is no planning phase to each mission; instead the player's 3-man team executes a pre-planned insertion with other anti-terrorist teams controlled solely by the computer. However, the player is free to deviate from the planned route and select their own path.


The player also cannot individually select the equipment each team member carries. Instead, the player choses from a small selection of pre-defined equipment packages for the entire team.


On each mission, the player has control of his two teammates, and can take direct control of any of them at any time. The player can also give a few rudimentary commands to his teammates, such as "wait here", "follow me", and "clear/grenade/flashbang the next room".
