    The first 15 to 20 minutes were a lot of fun. Then the rest of the game set in. [July 2002, p.90]

    While better than its predecessor on almost all counts, SOF II still does little to turn heads in the genre. Instead, it blows them clean off. [August 2002, p.66]
  3. It's a shame that the single player campaign is such a letdown - SoF 2 is an incredibly addictive multiplayer game, and if the polish shown to the online portion had transferred over to the single player game, we'd have a candidate of GOTY 2002 here.

    Anyone who gets off on the violence in this game is reveling in violence solely for violence's sake. [Sept 2002, p.78]

    A decent game but very frustrating due to the decidedly unfair AI. An enemy soldier should not be able to hear you crawling stealthily along A decent game but very frustrating due to the decidedly unfair AI. An enemy soldier should not be able to hear you crawling stealthily along the ground while he is standing on the other side of a stone wall. Worse yet, he shouldn't be able to throw a grenade over the wall and have it land right at your feet...and grenades should bounce, not stick where they land. And if you are crawling along in dense blizzard conditions with poor visiblity, the enemy soldier shouldn't be able to see you when you can't see him. And he shouldn't be able to shoot you from long distances with the accuracy of a sniper with his machine gun. And the 3-saves that you are given for each level seem like an artificial way to prolong the game because you never quite know when to save. If you use your saves too early, you have to repeat difficult parts of the level over and over again. And if you wait too long and get killed, then you have to repeat difficult parts over and over again. Either way, the player is the loser. It seems the developer did everything they could to make this game overly difficult, but not in a fair way. Full Review »

    This game is sweet. NOLF, Medal of Honor, and RCW is no where near this game. The story rocks, gore kicks, and the sound is awesome. If you This game is sweet. NOLF, Medal of Honor, and RCW is no where near this game. The story rocks, gore kicks, and the sound is awesome. If you like FPS and gore, this is the game to get. Trust me, your money will be well spent! Full Review »
