'''Project: Snowblind''' is a FirstPersonShooter game for the UsefulNotes/{{PS2}}, UsefulNotes/XBox and PC, developed by Creator/CrystalDynamics and published by [[Creator/{{Eidos}} Eidos Interactive]] in 2004. It was originally going to be the third game in the ''VideoGame/DeusEx'' series, ''Deus Ex: Clan Wars'' but when ''VideoGame/DeusExInvisibleWar'' didn't fare well with its release, it was decided that '''Clan Wars''' should be a SpiritualSuccessor to ''Deus Ex'', set in its own universe. The game shares ''Deus Ex's'' FirstPersonShooter gameplay and TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture setting but lacks the StealthBasedGame and RPGElements.

In 2065, Hong Kong is attacked by a force known as The Republic led by Yan Lo, a rogue Chinese general. The Liberty Coalition, an international peacekeeping force, respond to this, and 2nd Lieutenant Nathan Frost is injured in battle. To save his life, the Coalition use experimental nanotechnology, making him a 'Scarecrow', granting him nano-tech-based abilities, Augmentations. With his new powers, it's up to Frost and his force to stop Yan Lo before he can launch his operation, Project: Snowblind.

!!This game provides examples of:

* AKA47: The standard assault rifle used by both sides highly resembles the Chinese QBZ-95 and its ilk. Given that the game takes place in Hong Kong, it makes sense to see Chinese guns.
* AutoRevive: Manually triggered, but if you're downed when you're carrying a specific boost, you get back up at full health.
* BagOfSpilling: Averted from the second level afterwards. The weapons you receive throughout the game will stick with you to the end, and the ammunition at the start of each level will be the same as it was at the end of the previous level.
* BulletTime: One of the earliest augmentations slows things down, being called a reflex boost.
* CollapsingLair: Overloading the final reactor will start the detonation sequence. In the final level that follows, Frost needs to escape from the building before it explodes.
* CutscenePowerToTheMax: Several cutscenes have Nathan Frost casually gunning down Republic soldiers like it's nobody's business.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: You fight and kill General Yan Lo, the BigBad and the game's only boss fight, only about 60% of the way through the game, with the remaining levels being spent attempting to stop Yan Lo's plot from succeeding.
* TheDungAges: [[spoiler:The aim of Project: Snowblind - Yan Lo wants to detonate electromagnetic pulses in New York, Tokyo, and Paris in order to do this. Dr. Liaw, the [[DefectorFromDecadence former head designer]] of the EMP bombs central to the project, describes Yan Lo's plan as a belief that anyone who couldn't live through those ages [[TheSocialDarwinist doesn't deserve to live now]].]]
* EliteMooks: The Republic Elites, which are not only a lot tougher than regular troops but have nano-augmented powers such as cloaking, shields, or super-speed (though unlike you, they're limited to one power per soldier, with most of them seeming to focus on cloaking).
* EnemyChatter: Quite a few missions allow you to overhear conversations between Republic soldiers, and they're often quite comical.
* HumongousMecha: The Ogre walkers.
* InterfaceScrew: Occurs whenever Frost is hit with EMP or a Flashbang Grenade. In the former, his HUD is filled with static and is rendered "snowblind" for a few seconds, and in the latter, his vision is temporarily blurred by a white light.
* KilledOffScreen: General Cho Lao.
* MadeOfIron: In the second level, the other Coalition soldiers you meet and interact with throughout the level have a ''ridiculously'' high HP level. Unlike every other killable NPC (hostile or friendly) that normally only take one or two punches to kill, it takes twenty to thirty punches to kill one of them, and firearms barely phase them (and since A) they're on your side, and B) you're only given enough ammunition to fill one mag for each gun in that level, shooting them isn't recommended, anyway).
** Also, the Ballistic Shield augmentation makes Frost himself like this for a while.
* MookFaceTurn: The secondary function of the sniper rifle fires a bullet containing mind-altering drugs that cause any Republic soldier hit with one of them to attack any other Republic soldier in sight, before killing the soldier itself a few seconds later. Also, the Icepick allows Frost to hack into computer terminals and override the AI of any bots and turrets whose control system is connected to them and reprogram them to attack the Republic.
* ShockAndAwe: The Electric Storm augmentation.
* ShoutOut: In the very first level, one of the Coalition soldiers that assist you against the Republic will always be named "SPC. [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Charlie Brown]]".
* TheDeadHaveNames: Every allied NPC soldier is given a unique name; at the end of the game the player is treated to a memorial wall listing the name of every soldier that died under your command during the game's missions.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: [[spoiler: The result of earlier nano-technology being applied to Yan Lo twenty years ago, causing him to see technology as something that weakens mankind, hence Project: Snowblind.]]
