Soldier of Fortune: Payback

Thunderbolt Games
10 January 2008
  • Excerpt: Some questions popped into my head after spending about 15 minutes playing Soldier of Fortune: Payback . They were, in no particular order: * Is it possible for a human being to die in that position? * Can I ever run out of ammo? * Is it morally reprehensible to laugh at a fleeing enemy after I’ve shot their arms off and they’re screaming?

Soldier of Fortune: Platinum Edition

The Armchair Empire
10 December 2007
  • 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. However, there are many points where bad guys will suddenly appear behind you to get in a few cheap shots. (Which has nothing to do with the sound meter which can trigger surprise attacks if it hits its limit.

Soldier of Fortune: Payback

21 November 2007
  • 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.

Soldiers Of Fortune

  • Excerpt: So, I was told this is the most brutal and deadly shooting game ever released. A promise! So after I fired the game up, nice intro appears, nice menu, cool design. Interesting button on the bottom says 'turn violence off'.. Oh! No way! I wanna see all that bloody blood. The graphics looks perfect. Very detailed textures, shades, lights, and the game is still quite fast even in 1024x768 (Riva TNT).

22 September 2003
  • Excerpt: The most brutal and deadly shooting game ever released is finally out. This the release which again pushes graphics forward the virtual reality. The game is based on heavily modified Quake II engine, but don't expect any software renderer. You'll need a real hardware power to get all the bells and whistles.
