Showing 1-10 of 12
Not even as good as the original SoF from the 90s

Summary: This game makes me want to never buy another PS3 game. The design of Soldier of Fortune Payback is a major step backward in video game development. I would have preferred a straight rerelease of the original PC game.
Summary: The graphics look very PS2, but there's lot of gore, you can blow there arms and legs or head off, but not in the sweetspot, like in previous games. The soldiers dont scream like they did in the other games when there shot. No storyline, just a mission breifing, run and shoot in a straight line.
Summary: I THOUGHT THE 1ST SOLDIER OF FORTUNE WAS A PRETTY GOOD GAME. THE 2ND WASN'T THAT HOT. THE 3RD, PAYBACK, IS PRETTY AWFUL. FOR ONE THING IT IS TOO SHORT. YOU CAN PLAY IT IN 3 HOURS. IT IS BASICALLY PRETTY CHEESEY AND A SOMEWHAT WASTE OF TIME. IT SHOULD BE PRICED AT AROUND $12.00.
Summary: The controls are difficult at best and the game won't move past a mission (PS3) you just die for no reason , unless this disc I got is causing the problem. Ghost Recon, COD 4 and other games similar more believable and no problems with other similar games .
Summary: This is a very basic FPS with very long load times and ALOT of unlockable weapons that open as you complete missions. The problem is that while the controls aren't broken they are just so basic as are the environments that you can help but stave off the yawns as you split apart the bodies of your...
Summary: Seriously, don't bother. As FPS this is a massive let down. True to the franchise violent dismemberment is in abundance, but it soon becomes very boring and repetitive violence alone cannot make a game.
Excerpt: I am a huge fan of the first two Soldier of Fortune games, both for their B-movie like storyline and immense gore, so I was one of the first in line to sample the third game in the series, so imagine my disappointment when, within 10 minutes of playing the new SoF game, Payback, I realised that it...
Summary: The only thing that developer Cauldron has kept true to Ravens original games is gratuitous violence. Admittedly, there is much satisfaction to be had blasting someone's leg off with a Shotgun, but the violence can get very OTT after a while.
