  1. The plot is interesting and well told. The sounds effects and graphics are detailed, realistic, and both beautiful and gory. The enemy AI is outstanding and provides players of all skill levels with a stiff challenge.
  2. The action level in SOF II is high, so prepare your adrenal glands for some intense shooter battles. Playing John Mullins is still a blast.

    With solid action, great graphics and lots of replay value, SoF2 is easily one of the best action games of the year.
  4. I’m maybe a little less impressed by this title for several reasons. Foremost is the fact that, although my system satisfies the minimum daily requirements for vitamins plus iron, the game ran so ridiculously slowly as to be almost unplayable.
  5. 80
    Excellent level and mission variety leads to an experience that ranks among the best seen this year.
  6. Pick it up if you are in dire need of a first person shooter fix, and simply cannot wait for "Doom III" or "Deus Ex 2."

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

    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 leanThe 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

    I gave the game an 8 because the single player portion deserves a 6 but the multiplayer deserves a perfect 10. Yes, the MP is that good, I gave the game an 8 because the single player portion deserves a 6 but the multiplayer deserves a perfect 10. Yes, the MP is that good, better than CS, MOHAA and others. It's more newbie-friendly and at the same time is more competitive, cause you must rely much more in your team than in CS, individuality is not an option in most cases. This is because weapon balance is great, there are no AWP whores or such, and damage is not that realistic but not that arcade either, just a well-though balance to improve playability. Plus, since patch 1.02 the anti-cheat protection PunkBuster is included, and it works pretty well. The single player is ruined by the awful level design and the badly done "stealth", but I liked things like when you shoot a baddie in an arm, he'll drop his rifle in pain and draw his handgun (in latter levels only). Finally, graphics are very good for a Q3A-powered game, and in the sound department the music is nothing special but all the SFX rock! Expand

Son bir kaç yılın oyunlarını takip eden birisiyseniz bu oyuna hiç bulaşmayın çünkü seslendirme, grafik, seneryo, yapay zeka hiçbiri sizi heyecanlandırmayacak. Ama zamanına göre değerlendirirsek oyunun son bölümündeki iğrenç, tüfekle helikopter indirme saçmalığı hariç bölümleri eğlenceliydi. Oyunun hikaye modunun günümüz yapımlara göre de bir hayli uzun olduğunu söylemem gerekiyor. Expand

    It's just like the first game but worse in every aspect. I was extremely let down by this game when it was released, it's It's just like the first game but worse in every aspect. I was extremely let down by this game when it was released, it's uninspired, weapons feel and sound worse, the revolutionary gore system was downgraded and have never been seen again in a FPS since the first game... The entire game that used to be fast action just slows down and you even have to go to meetings (yes really!) in boring buildings. Expand
