The Protector centres on the exploits of two vastly different
characters - hardened British mercenary Jonathan Kane and
beautiful US archaeologist Jennifer Guile. After an acrimonious
two-year estrangement, these two former lovers are reunited when
Jennifer's father - a leading archaeologist - is murdered by a
new terrorist organisation called Scarlet Vengeance, which is
looking for a powerful Aztec artefact to use for a devastating
terrorist attack. When Scarlet Vengeance's attentions turn to
Jennifer - the only person who knows the location of the
artefact - Kane is forced to track her down and protect her.
Thrown together in extreme circumstances, the duo must overcome
their differences and use their unique skills to thwart the
terrorists' horrifying plan.
Play as both Jonathan Kane - a hardened British mercenary and
former MI6 agent trained in counter-terrorist tactics - and
Jennifer Guile - a beautiful and wily US archaeologist.

Disarm enemies by shooting the weapons from their hands, leaving
the enemies vulnerable. Once an enemy has been disarmed, they
must either reach for a sidearm or run for cover - both of which
Enemy AI uses lifelike line of sight and hearing to determine
your whereabouts. Enemies are more vulnerable in darker areas,
while their lifelike reactions to sight and sound also provide
the perfect environment for stealth-based gameplay.

students and workers who intelligently react to their
surroundings and situations.
Wide range of enemy types, ranging from elite terrorist forces
to mythical Aztec creatures.
