Excerpt: Soldier of Fortune has gotten quite some media hype, and most reviews are pretty positive on the game. A friend of mine once even called hysterically shouting that he was playing the demo version of the game and that I had to join him on the server he was.
Conclusion: body armor and health packs lying around that recovering is no problem. Enemies don’t vary much. There are the occasional rocket launcher toting guys or tanks or helicopters but nothing to change your tactics.
Conclusion: Do yourself a favor and let this one pass. There are so many other shooters on the market that are worth your while - Crysis, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Halo 3, BioShock, The Orange Box, Medal of Honor: Airborne, Call of Duty 4, Gears of War (PC)... take your pick.
Pros: Occasionally fun, easy to get into, solid variety of locations, excessive gore can be entertaining;
Cons: Technical issues, short single-player, nobody likes AI that cheats, generally mundane FPS experience.
