Soldier Of Fortune: Payback Reader Review
This game is the is a perfect example of how to ruin a good franchise!
Customizable weapons from the start, blood and gore! :P :D, body dismemberment! :P :D.
AI is terrible, voice acting is horrible, level design is poor, gameplay gets boring after the first ten minutes, no leaning mechanic unlike the first two games, enemy AI is able to shoot you through walls, mounted guns are useless as you have to wait a few seconds for your character to grab hold of them, checkpoint system....oh so console!, invisible walls, texture glitch (might because i'm using the latest drivers but it still shouldn't be there), weapons have no recoil at all, multiplayer is a complete joke, hit detection is atrocious.
This is a mediocre game, even the blood, gore and body dismemberment can't rescue it. They took a mediocre game put a few references to "The Shop" in it and labeled it Soldier of Fortune just to cash in on Christmas.
This game is a big steaming pile of poo and you would be much better off buying COD4.
Is this what we'll have to put up with from the new Activision Blizzard developer/publisher? Here's hoping not!
