Turning Point: Fall of Liberty Xbox 360 Review
30 May 2010
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 Point: Fall of Liberty, isn’t going to have the vast majority of gamers anticipating the companies next title.
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. With all of the great first-person shooters already available on these consoles, this game is honestly just a waste of your money. If you own an Xbox 360, just pick up a copy of Bioshock, Halo 3 or Call of Duty 4.
Conclusion: The multiplayer ones are a drag since this game is a pretty big flop. You're going to need to find yourself a dedicated boosting partner(s). I give it a 2/5, because it is mindless, which can be nice for a while if you just want to shoot some Nazis. The game's glitchiness and lack of interesting gameplay makes it a low scorer. There's just nothing special about it.
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. It feels conspicuously padded out, with completely unnecessary platform sections adding a crucial 60 seconds of play time every now and then. And yet for a game that can be finished in about 5 hours, it manages to feel endless.
Excerpt: Turning Point: Fall of Liberty is probably a game that not many of you have heard about. Well, unfortunately, you’ve stumbled upon my review and now you have heard about it. Let me get this out of the way first and foremost: this game is not good.
Excerpt: Turning Point: Fall of Liberty is probably a game that not many of you have heard about. Well, unfortunately, you’ve stumbled upon my review and now you have heard about it. Let me get this out of the way first and foremost: this game is not good. Now, that being said, let’s get on with the review. First off, Turning Point gets some points for a plot that’s actually fairly interesting and pretty original for the video game industry.
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. Having played the demo on the Xbox 360 a couple of months ago, I was looking forward to the game as the demo captures an interesting story and some of the cinematic visuals were impressive.
