  1. It seems fairly clear that nobody ever gave the game a good play-through – both to see how blatantly unready the game was for retail in terms of testing, but also how bland and uninteresting the core gameplay is.

    A completely unrecommendable mess. Even if you can get past the glaring errors, issues, bugs and problems, there is little that make the game different or more worthwhile than any other FPS ever made.
  3. It's buggy, it's ill-conceived, and it's even totally unplayable on some systems in its current state. If you think Bet on Soldier is a recipe for a game worth skipping, you're exactly right.
  4. Bet On Soldier’s non-linearity of progression, its riot-shield combat and internationally ranging scenarios suggest a game that might well have looked exciting on the drawing board. The final production, however, will leave anyone better off putting their money on the dogs. [Nov 2005, p.112]
  5. This is an ambitious title that tries to be original but fails on almost every level due to poor design. An odds-on failure.
  6. At least you can thank Bet on Soldier for making it easier to go back to boycotting Starforce. [Dec p.62]

    How could someone give this game 10 or 9 or even 8?You cant save when you want enemies are very weak youre comrades are totally dumb and evenHow could someone give this game 10 or 9 or even 8?You cant save when you want enemies are very weak youre comrades are totally dumb and even the weapons are dull.The only good thing is the 1 vs 1 deathmatch in which you earn more many for a more faster kill of the opponent.

    This is the worst game I have ever purchased. I'm not sure if they rushed it or what but for a final release version it sucks!! you This is the worst game I have ever purchased. I'm not sure if they rushed it or what but for a final release version it sucks!! you can't play for more than a few minutes before it crashes even at the latest patch version 1.2. I thought they had a good thing going a different twist on teh FPS genre... but they missed the mark entirely with this release it should have been in beta for at least 6 - 12 months longer to work out compatability issues and then maybe they may have had a decent game.... nice try but no thanks.
