Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a huge fan of Soldier of Fortune 2. I have never played a game so long and had so much fun. Soldier of Fortune 2 became even more amazing as time went on because the online community really made it their own. There are an infinite amount of mods, maps, skins, and settings that people created which allowed Soldier of Fortune 2 to evolve far beyond its initial offerings.

Fast forward 4 or 5 or wow I don't know how many years I've been playing SOF2, but fast forward to now and we have Soldier of Fortune Payback. The expectations couldn't be higher. There is a devote SOF2 following which have eschewed the Halo's, the Call of Duty's, the high-octane, story-filled, first-person-shooters that have taken gaming to an entire new level. Sure, I've played all of the new titles, in fact, I love Call of Duty 4!! Yet I still find myself going to the SOF2 online gaming community that I love. The graphics are outdated, the realism is, well, it isn't; it's an old game and I love it!! And I love it for the same reasons I love the new Soldier of Fortune.

So why do I like Payback? Call it nostalgia, call it simple, call it whatever you want, it takes fps' back to where they started; running around blowing people up!! No storyline of substance, no tactically adept AI; just overly powerful weapons that rip enemies to pieces. Blood squirting, limbs flying through the air, halved assassins crawling in agony on the ground (ok hopefully this review doesn't put me on the terror watch list), but you know what I'm saying?!!! It's the punching bag of fps'!!! You have a bad day at work, or traffic is driving you crazy, or you just need a little stress relief, SOF Payback is perfect. Sometimes I just want to come home and let a little steam off.

2.0 out of 5 stars VERY Disapointed November 24, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I have to say that I am very disappointed with this game. I really enjoyed the first two Soldier of Fortune games but this game did not live up to the franchise.

My first complaint, this game is broken out of the box! Yes, some of the updates help (at least I have sound now) but it lacks the polish of even mediocre FPS.

Second, the aiming in the game is terrible. You can be 30feet away with a M249 machine gun empty 100 rounds with the sight on the enemy and not hit him once!! It is extremely frustrating!

Third, even the dismemberment which Soldier of Fortune is known for, is surprisingly lame. It is hard to describe, whether it is too much blood (making it look like a cartoon) or the poor physics implementation, it just doesn't work for me.

Fourth, the options menu is pathetic! The game is extremely limited on customizable video, sounds, playability options and the options that are available and poorly done (why do I have to scroll through 30 resolutions and refresh rates to pick the one I want... what is this 1998??)

Overall, I just cannot recommend this game to all but the must fervent SoF fans and even then wait until this game is about 10 bucks.. you will thank me..

3.0 out of 5 stars A GORE-FEST THAT DOES NOT PAY TO BE BACK November 16, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The original SOF was a surprise sleeper-hit, developed by RAVEN, who also designed the SOF2: DOUBLE HELIX. They both were EXCELLENT FPS games!!

Unfortunately (as it turned out) the RAVEN group had nothing to do with this release. It was developed by CAULDRON who, I guess eager to please, overshot its mark.
Now, I enjoy a good blood-bath as the next guy - and the SOF series had always been gory and graphic. Who can forget the...crotch-shots reaction in the original SOF! (there was actually a..count of them after each stage, right after the head-shots!). Playing SOF-PAYBACK, however, never had I seen more limps get torn away, more blood-spaying torsos flanged back, more heads exploding like geysers . It surely deserves the M-Rating it got. The squeamish should not worry though, one can turn all this gore off - but why then play this game?

Graphically SOF-PAYBACK is nowhere close the latest major releases. Only the torn limps make good use of the engine's physics. Urban settings look like movie-studio lots; jungles feel like made out of plastic. In CRYSIS when trees get shot at enough they, well, fall. In SOF: PAYBACK they keep accumulating bullet-holes forever.

AI? What AI? It feels artificial and it sure is NOT intelligent. Your enemies do everything but line up in front of your sights. Currently there are many FPS games with good to excellent AI. This make SOF-PAYBACK shortcomings in this area show even more: total absence of defensive tactics, unnatural reactions and absolutely no use of their environment. Likely, there is a multiplayer to save the day.

The single player includes 15 levels and 40 weapons , all of which are customizable (with sights, ammo, silencers etc).

4.0 out of 5 stars Will you like this game? It depends. December 5, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had a lot of fun with this game. And frankly, I don't understand all the hate being generated at it. I've played the first two games in the series, and this doesn't seem to be much different, and in fact, is much better in the graphics department. The graphics and set-pieces are just stunning. Also, the dismemberment engine seems to work just fine, depending upon your weapon choice. I paid full release price for this game, and was not disappointed. Apparently, the biggest mistake the publisher made was in using the SOF license with this game, thus making angry a ton of loyal SOF fans. Although, as I said, I can't understand why, seeing as that the Single-player aspect plays very similar to the first two games. Maybe it's the multiplayer that's making everybody mad. I can't say, as I don't do multiplayer. All I can say is that I really enjoyed the single-player part.

There are some problems, but none that lessened my enjoyment. For instance, the levels are linear. Not as linear as the first two games though. The first two were extremely on rails. This one has opened things up quite a bit more in areas, although there are a lot of places I would have enjoyed exploring more. You can actually do some needless exploration in the cave system area, though never enough to get yourself lost. The enemy AI is nothing to get excited about either, but it gets the job done as long as you're not looking for too much realism. Gameplay-wise, I enjoy moving ahead, stopping, blasting a few baddies away, sniping a bunch more from far away, and moving on again. Enemies do spawn, which normally bothers me (in games like COD4 for instance), but here, they do not repawn endlessly, so eventually you'll be able to clear them out.
