Summary: This game is a complete dissapointment. Sof Payback is a downgrade from Sof Double Helix. The landscape/body modeling, and the variety of weapons are the only positive gains. The story line is uncreative and very generic. Gameplay lasts about 4.5 hours on normal. Activsion was obviously trying to sell the name and hope that us Sof Veterans would blindly go out and buy the game. If you have to play this RENT IT, don't waste your money buying it.
Summary: the best thing about this game is that I rented it and didn't buy it. It was probably the wrong game to play after Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which is a game so much better it pains me to mention the two in the same sentence.
Summary: "SOLDIER OF FORTUNE 3!!!!" My first response. Little did I know what I was in for. Remember all those first person shooters released since the nineties? The ones released, just to release something? The ones that you would play for hours and still feel like you did when you first started it, "Maybe it will get better." Low and behold, all is well and done, yet... It remained HORRIBLE. Well, that is this game. The first two were wonderfully done.
Conclusion: I was a huge fan of the first two games in the series and was looking forward to this one. What a huuuuge let down. Poor AI, poorly designed levels and an ending that makes you wonder if the developers ran out of time, money and imagination. Even the multiplayer aspect is a shambles. Total waste of money!!!
