  • Summary: The main problem affecting the Dreamcast port of Soldier of Fortune is the game's ridiculously long loading times.

    A solid Dreamcast title that, despite having a few nagging problems with controls and loading problems, delivers good bloody action & actually, let me rephrase that, & delivers brutally violent, incredibly gory, and horrific bloody action that borders on the perverse.

    It’s good fun for gunslingers who have strong stomachs and who can separate fantasy from reality, but with its average graphics and watery story, Soldier is notable only for its amazingly…um…interactive violence and its place as one of the few semi-realistic shooters for the Dreamcast.
  3. A much higher score would be given if the ridiculously long 90 second load time between levels had been optimized. Otherwise, it’s a great shooter.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Fans of the genre will like it and the gameplay is simple but strangely addictive.
  7. Through and through, Soldier of Fortune is a mess of a port.

    This game beats the SH** out of any other game for Dreamcast.

    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.

    This game is great, however, the loading time sucks!

    This game is the most addictive game on dreamcast. The day I ordered it and the day I got it I loved this game. The only bad part is the loading time. Collapse
