Turning Point: Fall of Liberty
15 June 2014
Conclusion: Dead bodies will glitch into the walls, ceiling, and floor, making it hard to throw a grenade correctly. Lag, long spawn times, and a buggy experience makes even boosting this game a terrible time online.
Excerpt: Though it does possess some talented individuals who previously worked on the Medal of Honor series, Spark Unlimited is nonetheless a relatively new development studio, and since people recognise developers by their games rather than their people, such an obviously cobbled together game as Turning...
Conclusion: Although Turning Point had an interesting storyline, it still ends up being an incredibly limited and generic WWII shooter. I would like to say that the storyline alone makes this game worth playing through but the quality is just not there.
Xbox 360 Review - 'Turning Point: Fall of Liberty'
8 July 2008
Summary: Fall of Liberty takes players to new battlegrounds in World War II, ones born from a changed moment in history that led to the Nazi invasion of 1950s America, delivering an explosive action experience in a world where famous real-world locations appear startlingly different under Nazi occupation.
Conclusion: Despite the odd pleasing moment, Turning Point is never in danger of being a good game. Any positive aspects are overshadowed by the sluggish game engine, the last-gen visuals and cheap design decisions.
Excerpt: Imagine if Winston Churchill, the leader of Great Britain during World War II, died in 1931; eight years before the second World War. Would the Nazi’s have taken control of Europe? Would the war have moved closer to home? This is the basic premise of Turning Point: Fall of Liberty.
Excerpt: Take a hugely successful genre (FPS in this case), use a well established and advanced game engine (Unreal Engine 3), throw in a storyline with a twist to make it different to the norm (a world where the Germans invaded America during World War II) and you'd expect good results.
Summary: Turning Point: Fall of Liberty has you playing as an unlikely hero named Dan Carson who is caught in the thick of things when the Nazi invade New York. The premise of the game supposes that Winston Churchill was fatally injured in an accident while he was a visiting dignitary in New York City.
Summary: An intriguing concept can't save this game from the pits of mediocrity.
Pros: Awesome story concept; fantastic action set-pieces; excellent sound design and soundtrack; decent graphics; fun environmental kills.
Cons: Idiotic AI; lots of glitches including some crash bugs; poor frame-rate; middling level-design; derivative FPS gameplay; infuriatingly sparse checkpoints; never capitalizes on the storyline potential; mediocre multiplayer.
