It's Homeland Security meets Dawn of the Dead and the body count just keeps going up and up...but the terrorists are already dead so it's a pain in the ass to have to keep killing them. Jack Bauer, take the day off...Joe Ledger's here to make sure being dead doesn't catch on... From official release/information:
Product Description: When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there's either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills... and there's nothing wrong with Joe Ledger's skills. And that's both a good, and a bad thing. It's good because he's a Baltimore detective that has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can't handle. This rapid response group is called the Department of Military Sciences or the DMS for short. It's bad because his first mission is to help stop a group of terrorists from releasing a dreadful bio-weapon that can turn ordinary people into zombies. The fate of the world hangs in the balance....
