Operation Secret Storm is an action-oriented NES game where you control a secret agent named George B. (which was seen by many as a caricature of then-President George H. W. Bush) as he fights the Iraqi army. The player fights a lot of Arabs as he gets deeper and deeper into Iraq. During the development of the game, Operation Desert Storm was a hot topic on the news and the developers rushed the game to release it before the conflict could end.

Reception[edit]

Saddam Hussein, as he appears in this game, is ranked eighth in Electronic Gaming Monthly’s list of the top ten video game politicians.[1] The game's superhero caricature of George H. W. Bush was ranked as one of the greatest video game Presidents by G4. [2]
