Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS unless your like me and must have every SOF game. Its terrible. I've yet to beat the now infamous level 2 because the game either refuses to acknowledge MY BULLETS do damage or the enemies start clipping so bad it locks my movement. YES enemies CLIPPING locks YOUR movement. Not looking, just moving. brilliant....search youtube walkthroughs.
Summary: OK for a person that never played a vidio game before. Cartoon like action and graphics. The game is clunky and stiff. The bad guys just stand there and let you shoot them. No thinking involved just walk thru and shoot. Sound track is also stupid and stiff. bad guys say the same thing over and over. Total waste of money AND,,non returnable...How nice is that.
Summary: They changed the story, the gameplay, and the graphics. Don't waste your money. They took what was once a great title and turned it into an arcade game. Don't make the same mistake I made, don't buy this.
Summary: I have three computer's,and it wouldn't work on any of them.One pc,the screen was nothing but white,green and reddish.The other two,after the game started,the screens froze,so,I couldn't play it at all.Dissappointed! I took it out and put it back in three times on each pc.Careful with this one.
Summary: i got this game mostly for curiosity more than anything. SOF and SOF 2 were great games in their time with little bad to say about them. they were great in every way. easy to install, play, adjust, lan game, play on the net, and add mods, ect ect.... this is the death of the franchise and name in every iteration.
Summary: Avoid this game. It's very buggy even with the patches. Tons of problems. Some examples: 1) You step off a platform and end up trapped behind it's legs. You can't jump over, crawl under, or go around. Restart the level. 2) The gun site is not accurate. Often you have to aim a little bit off of the target to get a hit. Hard to find the magic sweet spot when enemies are running after you. 3) The AI sucks. The enemies pretty much line up to die.
Summary: I started gaming in 1982-3 on a 64K Apple 2+ and started playing FPS with the very first Castle Wolfenstein and I have played FPS and RPG games continually since then. Yup, I am an old guy. I played the first two versions of this game and I found Soldier of Fortune one to be maybe worthy of 2.5 stars. The second version was much better maybe a 3.5-4 star game. It was a better game in every sense than the first. This new title "Payback" is appropriate...
