A UsefulNotes/WorldWarII AlternateHistory FirstPersonShooter that was developed by (now defunct) ''Spark Unlimited'' and published by Creator/{{Codemasters}} in 2008. On December 13, 1931, UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill was hit by a cab while visiting New York City. While in real life, Churchill was only mildly injured, in the game's universe, the accident causes his death. Years later, without Churchill's foresight and leadership, the United Kingdom falls to the [[ThoseWackyNazis Third Reich]] in 1940, and the rest of Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East fall soon afterward. While in the United States, the nation chose an isolationist policy, implemented by Republican president Thomas E. Dewey (who [[DeweyDefeatsTruman defeated]] UsefulNotes/HarryTruman in 1948).

A period of development follows the success of the Axis Powers, transforming conquered Europe, Asia and Africa into the Greater German Reich and allowing allies Japan and Italy to share in the prosperity; at the same time, the Nazis start to built up their military. Eventually, in 1953, they launch a massive, surprise invasion on the U.S., one of the few nations that is still free from German rule. The player takes control of Dan Carson, a New York construction worker, and joins the [[LaResistance American Resistance]] against the invaders.

Despite an interesting plot, the game received generally very negative reviews. The criticisms include a flat, linear storyline that provided little characterization, a very short campaign that can be finished in 2-3 hours, a lackluster and unamusing multiplayer mode, and frustratingly uncooperative gameplay actions, such as climbing ladders. In response to the reviews, the developers have stated that their game was not intended for hardcore gamers, but rather a more casual audience.

----
!!This game features examples of the following tropes:
* ActionCommands: Two different options: An instant kill, where Carson melees the German soldier to death, or using him as a [[HumanShield human shield]]. Occasionally, a German soldier will be standing near an interactive object, such as a furnace or a toilet, allowing Carson to perform an environmental kill with it.
* ActionSurvivor: Dan Carson
* AlternateHistory
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: For some reason, the Quisling President Stevenson has quite a bit more health than normal enemies (it takes a couple dozen rounds of MP50 fire to drop him) if you just stand around and let him talk until he pulls a pistol on you. If you shoot him in the face while he's talking like you're supposed to, he dies in one shot.
* BigApplesauce: The game immediately begins in New York as the military might of the Greater German Reich starts invading the city and ends with the Germans attempting to nuke the city.
* BigGood: General George Donnelly, one of the few US commanders not to surrender to the German occupation.
* BitterSweetEnding / HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Carson stops the Nazis from dropping the atomic bomb on New York; however, the bomb's controls are damaged in the firefight, leaving Carson unable to simply jettison the bomb. Instead, Carson rewires the atomic bomb to self-destruct, destroying the zeppelin and killing himself, but saving New York and inspiring other Americans to continue the resistance]].
* CheckpointStarvation: Checkpoints are spaced quite far apart, so if you die you'll be sent back pretty far.
* DayOfTheJackboot: Notably pre-dates both ''VideoGame/{{Homefront}}'' and ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'', though ''VideoGame/FreedomFighters'' came out a few years before it.
* EliteMooks[=/=]HeavilyArmoredMook: The heavy weapons soldiers armed with MG48 Karabine heavy machineguns. On normal difficulty they've got the same stats as any other Mook, but on the highest difficulty they have twice as much health as a normal Mook.
* ExplodingBarrels
* ForWantOfANail: Winston Churchill died from being run over by a cab in 1931, as opposed to surviving with mild injuries, causing the timelines to diverge.
* GasMaskMooks: A number of German mooks wear gas masks. In the police station level this makes sense as they end up using gas grenades against you, but in other levels it just seems purely cosmetic.
* GroinAttack: At one point in the [[spoiler:White House]], Carson finds a German burning some American paraphernalia in a furnace and has the option of doing an environmental kill; in which Carson overpowers the German before kicking him between the belongings [[CrowningMomentOfFunny and right INTO the furnace]].
* HannibalLecture: Quisling President James Stevenson tries to justify his collaboration with the Nazis when he is confronted by Carson in his office. Doesn't actually save him from getting his ass kicked by a construction worker.
* HarderThanHard: "Insane" difficulty, which significantly increases the damage enemies do. However, their aim and reaction time remains the same, and you can still survive several hits before dying, making it actually reasonably manageable and a lot easier than, say, "Veteran" difficulty from ''Call of Duty''.
* HoldTheLine: The National Guard unit in New York that is battling a fighting retreat out of the city.
* InvadedStatesOfAmerica
* ItsRainingMen: The first German enemy that the player encounters is a paratrooper and is quickly disposed of with an ActionCommand as part of the tutorial. In the same tutorial, the player has the chance to shoot down some German paratroopers.
* LaResistance: The American Resistance.
* MonumentalDamage: The Statue of Liberty is bombed by German bombers during the start of the invasion (surviving pieces of the statue's crown are depicted on the game's European box art). The Chrysler Building is also knocked over. For the good guys, the American Resistance bombed the [[spoiler:White House]], which was occupied by the Nazis.
* MooksButNoBosses: Every enemy in the game has the exact same stats (taking about 5 bullets to kill from the MP50 or tommy gun), and most tend to carry the same weapons as well. The only real standout are the heavy weapons soldiers, as they have unique movement animations and come armed with miniguns (on the highest difficulty they also have double health). President Stevenson has quite a bit more health than normal for some reason, but he's very much an optional fight since you can just shoot him in the face while he's talking.
* NoSwastikas: Averted. Interestingly, in the commercials for the game it originally showed the Iron Cross on the flags instead.
* NukeEm: The Nazis' atomic bomb as a last resort in quelling the resistance in America by 'testing' it on New York City, and is the last mission in stopping them before it's too late.
* TheQuisling: Nazi-sympathizer and Speaker of the House James Edward Stevenson, who became President of the American puppet government.
* ShootTheTelevision: In the Resistance's hideout, Angelo shoots a TV featuring the puppet leader, President Stevenson, denying the existence of the German atomic bomb. Angelo gets reprimanded by another Resistance member for blowing the "third set this week".
* StormingTheCastle: Occurs three times. Rescuing General George Donnelly at the United States Courthouse; assassinating President Stevenson at the White House [[spoiler:and blowing it up in the process]]; and infiltrating the Tower of London.
* StupidJetpackHitler: Thanks to the Axis winning WWII, the Greater German Reich developed their Wunderwaffen, including [[TankGoodness super-heavy tanks]] such as the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panzerkampfwagen_VIII_Maus Panzerkampfwagen VIII Maus]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landkreuzer_P._1000_Ratte Landkreuzer P. 1000 Ratte]] (which were real-life tank prototypes that didn't make it past the production phase), [[DropShip Nachteule troop-transport zeppelin]], the Flugzeugträger German aircraft carrier [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graf_Zeppelin_class_aircraft_carrier Graf Zeppelin]], and various advanced jet fighters and bombers.
** [[LyingCreator Said the developers]]. Except most of these are not actually in the game, [[BlandNameProduct just generic tanks]]. If you want to see those tanks realized, ''VideoGame/WarFrontTurningPoint'' is the game to play.
* UniqueEnemy:
** The heavy weapons soldiers armed with miniguns (MG48 Karabines) are very rare; there are only about 5 to 7 of them throughout the entire game. They behave like standard HeavilyArmoredMook enemies, with heavy firepower and a slow walk, but can't actually take more damage than normal enemies (though their health is doubled on the highest difficulty).
** You only fight "Vampyr" night-vision snipers in a single segment near the beginning of the game.
* WeInterruptThisProgram / ThisJustIn: The player is briefed on the next mission by news broadcasts.
* ZeppelinsFromAnotherWorld: The ''Graf Zeppelin''-type airships that are part of the Greater German Reich's invasion. The last level takes place on a zeppelin that is about to nuke New York.
