Soldier of Fortune: Payback Review

PlayStation Universe
8 April 2009
  • Summary: Soldier of Fortune: Payback is like a poor man’s Call of Duty 4 - for the same price.
  • Pros: Excessive dismemberment is surprisingly hilarious
  • Cons: A cohesive story is nearly non-existent, Terrible A.I. litters the entire game, The multiplayer is incredibly bland

Soldier of Fortune: Payback

Cosmos Gaming

  • Excerpt: The first two Soldier of Fortune games were pretty good games that were well worth a playthrough. Raven Software’s gore-dripping shooter series boasted the most realistic violence seen in games with each enemy having 26 dismemberment spots and 36 in the second game. Soldier of Fortune is back, but Raven isn’t at the helm anymore; instead the series has been handed over to Slovakian developers, Cauldron, who are also responsible for The History Channel: Civil War – A...

  • Excerpt: The Soldier of Fortune games met with a certain degree of success thanks to a solid shooter mechanic mixed with a unnaturally high amount of gore. Well now the series has returned with Soldier of Fortune: Payback, this time on the PC and consoles with all the blood and guts we’ve come to expect, plus a budget price tag. Is this soldier a fortune or filing chapter 9?

  • Excerpt: Soldier of Fortune has been on a hiatus lasting over four years now. Though, to be perfectly honest, it isn't a franchise many missed, because it was only worth playing on the PC. You see, in the past, there was a rule of thumb for Soldier of Fortune games: the PC versions were good, but the console games sucked. Simple, right? Though, to be fair, the Dreamcast port wasn't bad for its time, but it wasn't spectacular, either.

Soldier of Fortune: Payback Review

25 November 2007
  • Excerpt: Soldier of Fortune has been a cult title from the minute its first installment hit store shelves. Played more for the intense action and gore than the actual gameplay, people knew what they’d get. Soldier of Fortune II came along and was essentially more of the same, but ultimately not quite up to the original’s status. Now, we have Soldier of Fortune: Payback, and it continues the downward trend the series took from its initial release.

Soldier of Fortune Payback Review (PS3)

17 February 2008
  • Excerpt: Gore Please I bought this game. Knowing it has very poor review scores, mostly below 5 /10. I paid 39.99 for it so why would I do that? Instinct told me I would love this game like I love the earlier games in the series. Reading comments like, it’s too easy, poor level design, poor AI, poor storyline, these are all true but do not spoil the experience. I bought it, not expecting a Call of Duty 4, or Medal Of Honor Airbourne , this is different.
  • Pros: Lots Of gore, Online Play basic, but Lag Free and Fun, AI is so bad it’s good, part of the games charm, Weapons Sound Awesome, Massive Choice Of Weapons to pick from.
  • Cons: Poor Storyline, Linear Game play with little variety in levels, Has Its Share Of glitches

  • Excerpt: I Payback lär vi oss den mänskliga anatomin. På kroppen sitter armar som håller gevär. Inne i kroppen finns det massor av blod och annat äckligt och klibbigt. Vi lär oss de bästa sätten att dissekera och att huvudet lätt losnar av kulor. Förutom läran om den mänskliga kroppen finner jag inget nyttigt i det här spelet.
  • Pros: Relativt billig anatomilektion
  • Cons: Texturhackor, Terminator-bossar, Pacifist-AI, Mason är ett svin

  • Conclusion: Soldier of Fortune est l’exemple parfait de ce qu’il ne faut pas faire au niveau de l’aspect technique d’un jeu. Cependant, il reste néanmoins un défouloir ultra bourrin qui saura contenter un certain panel de joueurs.
  • Pros: Diablement défoulant, Un arsenal bien fourni
  • Cons: Une IA catastrophique, Court, Multi basique et désert, Level Design trop répétitif, Bugs à foison, Entièrement en Anglais

Soldier of Fortune: Payback

  • Conclusion: Nej Soldier of Fortune: Payback är och förblir en hjärndöd och linjär våldsfest där blodsmängden står i paritet med den senaste Rambo-filmen. Gillar man övervåld kan man enkelt stå ut med kostnaden för spelet då det säljs till lägre pris, men man ska inte förvänta sig något mer än just övervåld. Spelet i sig är ljummet och utan blodet hade det passerat obemärkt förbi. Det är ett godkänt tidsfördriv – varken mer eller mindre.
  • Pros: Blodigt roligt.
  • Cons: Bökig kontroll, väldigt basic och utan finess.
