    The first FPS game to incorporate the "leaning" and "prone" tactic to the genre which over the years gave way to macros to perform a lean while strafing, commonly called "the electric slide" allowing the player model to be about 75% harder to hit due to being in a form not recognized by the original game code, thus spawning many mods to a game with an open source code. However, hidden Quake developer console commands ultimately ruined the multiplayer aspect allowing players to shut down servers and hack other players resulting in an extreme loss of interest in trying to keep servers up. These were earlier days when Punkbuster's system of detecting aimbots and hacks was in it's infancy. Expand

    The game is not perfect but for the time the graphics were state-of-the-art and the gameplay and realism were top notch and allthough it has been 6 years the game has aged but still feels fun and refresing compared to newer games like COD and MOH and also the weapons may not be new or as fun as you would have thought SOF2 Had spawned the realism of modern shooters and you have to hand it that.

    This game is boring. I played SoF 1 and that game had a great original atmosphere (Stop screaming!), very exciting to play. This one doesn't have atmosphere.

    Why modern games can't provide this level of sophisticated gore anymore is a mystery especially with how advanced game engines are nowadays. Still arguably the most satisfying shooter ever created.

    With solid action, great graphics and lots of replay value, SoF2 is easily one of the best action games of the year.
  2. 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.
  3. Anyone who gets off on the violence in this game is reveling in violence solely for violence's sake. [Sept 2002, p.78]
