Soldier of Fortune: Payback Review

PlayStation Universe

  • Cons: A cohesive story is nearly non-existent, Terrible A.I. litters the entire game, The multiplayer is incredibly bland

Soldier of Fortune: Payback

  • 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?

Expert Review

  • 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.

  • 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.
