Der Spieler schlüpft in die Rolle eines Geheimdienstlers ... Komm einfach nicht drauf, wie das hier gemeint ist.
Explanation: Habe das Gefühl, das schon mal gehört zu haben und das es sich vom Romanhelden Mike Hammer von Mickey Spillane ableitet, einem Privatdetektiv, der bei der Wahl seiner Methoden nicht zimperlich ist. Bin mir aber nicht sicher, ob ich mir das nicht nur einbilde.
Mike Hammer is a fictional American detective created by the American author Mickey Spillane in the 1947 book I, the Jury (made into a 1953 movie). Hammer is tough to the point of brutality. Several movies and radio and TV series have been based on the books about Mike Hammer. The actor most closely identfied with the character in recent years has been Stacy Keach, who portrayed Hammer in a CBS television series, Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer, which ran 1984-1987 and had a syndicated revival in 1997-1998. (An earlier syndicated version, originally aired 1957-1958, starred Darren McGavin as Hammer.) Mickey Spillane himself played Hammer in a 1963 motion picture adaptation of The Girl Hunters.
