The Caribbean island of Sao Madrigal, lying near the coast
of Brazil, has fallen under the control of a fascist dictator following a
bloody military coup. Recent discoveries made the island the area's largest
producer of oil and chemical products. The previous democratic government had
used the oil revenue to develop the island's industry and economy almost to
A lot of western investment and aid helped the island's
initial development, guaranteeing favorable contracts and trade agreements for
western business. After the coup all western assets were seized and any
agreements revoked; the new president denounced western involvement as
imperialism, and is currently negotiating new trade agreements with China, who
are believed to have aided the new president in the coup.
An overt operation to restore democracy and to recover our
interests is politically dangerous as the new president seems to be enjoying a
lot of public support for standing up to the west. An undercover operation has
been sanctioned to remove the new military junta from power. In this we will be
working with the leader of the previous democratic government who is currently
trying to coordinate and raise support for a counter revolution.
You may use propaganda, political or direct military action
to bring this about - you will have to decide the most suitable approach in
relation to developing conditions. Public support for the democratic faction
will be vital if the opposition leader is to succeed.

"As head of the CIA, you command three groups of nine covert
agents in an attempt to destabilize the dictatorship and return the elected
president to office. Your political agents can spy, bribe, and blackmail. You
can have propagandists acquire and disseminate information for selective
character assassination. Your military advisors can supply arms and training to
loyalist rebels hiding in the jungle. But don't let the advisors' presence give
you the wrong idea: Central Intelligence is about strategy, not military
tactics. You're not in charge of the individual missions; those are all
"Central Intelligence has an enjoyable open-ended quality.
With more than 1,300 potential contacts from all walks of life, you'll never
have to worry about your field operatives lounging around. There are lots of
cities, towns, and hamlets to scour for information, thousands of objects to
use, and dozens of mission types available."
"With online help, a better interface, decent artwork, and
some music, this strategy game could have been another SimCity or Civilization.
Still, once you get past the steep learning curve, Central Intelligence is fun
