Reviews and Problems with Soldier of Fortune: Payback
Showing 1-10 of 11
Not even as good as the original SoF from the 90s
13 June 2011
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. The graphics are OK for a game that could be 10 years old, but the game play is extremely linear and downright boring. The transitions between scenes are ... unfinished? I mean sometimes you open a door and then magically appear in a different room.
Summary: there is much better shooters out there than this one like call of duty black ops, call of duty modern warfare2, and call of duty world at war. The call of duty series is so much better than this.
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. Some of the bosses near the end are insanely difficult, that if you dont use exact precision, they will kill you with one shot, be prepared to die over and over.
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. I CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY EVEN RELEASED IT.
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 . They must of had there rookies make this one and you will see the price difference from other similar and better quality games also.
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 foes with some fairly cool and powerful weapons. SOF Payback is also following on the heels of COD4 which has set a new standard for FPS gaming.
Soldier of Fortune: Pay Back (PS3): One of the worst games EVER
27 December 2009
Summary: 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 was probably one of the worst FPS games that I have ever played.
Summary: Autor: Martin Havlíček Publikováno: 19.listopadu 2007 Verze: PC/ang./finální s patchem Doba recenzování: 5 dnů Přišel čas odplaty, naznačuje podtitul třetího dílu slavné akční série. A povahu hry vystihuje dokonale, i když v jiném smyslu, než bylo autory zamýšleno. Krutá odplata totiž není směřována virtuálním teroristům, jako spíše fanouškům série. Pokud vydavatel ohlásí hru měsíc před jejím vydáním, něco není v pořádku.
