  1. While some subtle improvements have been made, many of the game's original flaws remain, including lackluster gameplay and a dull story.
  2. The guiltiest pleasure an individual sick-enough to be a member of the NRA can have locked inside a basement with a big screen TV and a stereo system cranking.
  3. The worst, in a ruin the game entirely sort of way, worst part of SoF, hands down has to be the pathetic artificial intelligence offered up by your enemies.
  4. SoF is best played as a guilty pleasure…Hankerin’ for some good ol’-fashioned shootin’? [Sept 2001, p.147]
  5. Fans of the genre will like it and the gameplay is simple but strangely addictive.
  6. The main problem affecting the Dreamcast port of SoF is the game's ridiculously long loading times. Each game level is broken into numerous smaller stages. Every time you complete a stage, you have to wait more than a minute for the next to load.
  7. The gore alone will keep you entertained at first, but once you discover the game's detailed graphics and subtle effects you'll be hooked.

    This game kicks ass, even though it takes a long time to load which does not bother me. Once you get started you cant stop.
