Secret Service, (also known as Secret Service: Ultimate Sacrifice) is a first-person shooter video game, developed by Cauldron HQ and published by Activision Value for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360. The game is set in Washington D.C. on Inauguration Day, where the player assumes the role of an elite agent named Pierce, whose task is to eliminate enemies to prevent them from attacking the capitol. The game uses the CloakNT in-game engine. The game was released in North America on November 4, 2008 and was released in Europe on March 13, 2009 .
The game centers around fictional country Costa Sentava and its attack on the United States.
The gameplay is very similar to the James Bond games and Soldier of Fortune: Payback. The game contains puzzle elements, where players must defuse bombs and unlock doors. It also uses the same animations from Soldier of Fortune: Payback for a few guns, such as Sniper, MP5, Pistol and Eggs.
Secret Service has received generally negative reviews. IGN reviewer Charles Onyett awarded the Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360 version a 4.5 rating, praising some of the game's artificial intelligence for having a bit of challenge. However, Oynett pointed out the game's single-player campaign for being too short and not featuring a multiplayer mode.
