Summary: Obviously Yawn has never played the game online in a multiplayer game/server. Yawn's description is completely accurate as a single player game. Honestly --I never finished or bothered to finish the game as a single player. With the 4 areas of rating the game, I think I rated each one about a 70 or so, but i rated it a 95 overall. Comparing its graphics and so on to today's games, is almost like comparing apples and oranges. The game is over 10 years old. .
Summary: Well to be honest this game is just average. Not a single thing sticks out about it. I have had my original XBOX for 7 years and this is one of the worst looking games on the system. Blurry graphics, poor character models and horrible level design. The sound is there and you take that comment for what it is worth. The only redeeming quality this game has is the fact it has guns and well you shoot everything in front of you.
Summary: Ah, where do I begin? The storyline is a bore, the voice acting for the most part muttered and terrible, and the levels infuriatingly long and complex. I played "Conflict: Vietnam" on Hard and it was nowhere near so much of a pain in the butt. And before anybody starts getting on me for disliking long and complex levels, know that I played "Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind" and loved it. "Double Helix" levels got nothing on the massive depth and scale of Morrowind.
Summary: I bought this game with somewhat low expectations and I was still let down. I would consider this to be the " Let down game of the year". There is no excitement at all and you feel cheated out of your pesonal time if you play it for to long. I played for only about 2 hours and I was bored stiff. You can spend you money in so many better ways on amazon. If you have not played Shadow Ops - Red Mercury then I suggest that you buy it over this.

Conclusion: People these days rely on great graphics, which this game does not have. To Soldier of Fortune II's defence it is a great game if you just want to pick up the Xbox and just run around and shoot people and blow things up. A straight forward storyline which wont keep a gamer grilled to the screen like a zombie but it helps the time pass if you just want to sit down and kill some time.

Conclusion: Well... where to start? Perhaps I'll start with the fact that this game sucks... Its awful the AI is complete muck, the graphics look like something you would get on a N64 and the gameplay is sluggish and repetitive! The only saving grace this game has is the ghoul II engine that allows you to dismember people... other than that the game is horrible, I'm glad I bought this game pre-owned...
Summary: This game is pathetic. The gameplay is like any cut-and-paste first-person shooter, and is therefore boring. The GHOUL-2 engine is a good idea, but the way it was executed was pathetic. Okay, so you're telling me in real life if you take a slash at someone's face with a pocket knife, you will abruptly take out a 2-inch by 2-inch chunk of flesh and bone from their forehead for no apparent reason?
Summary: This is a long playing shooter with very poor graphics and average sound. If you like shooters you might like this and it might be worth it for 20 bucks, but if you haven't played ghost recon, halo, etc use the money on them and see what the xbox can do. This game might be alright for playstation II users but it doesn't really make the cut on xbox.
Extremely long single player, but poor everywhere else.

Summary: I spent many, many hours playing the single player; and I normally rock at first person shooters. It's not that the game is hard, infact it's pretty easy, it's just long. The story line is there, but you can hardly follow it past, "bad guy with big biological gun". In addition to that, it's sometimes really hard to figure out what you're supposed to do with the big bosses.
