    We have seen awesome games that do everything right, from quick load times to speedy framerates, to beautiful production values, to tight controls, to just being original games. SoF Gold is problematic in every one of these categories.
  2. The multi-player modes and maps in "Gold Edition", which are exclusive features for this PS2 port that were meant to be selling points, are sabotaged by control and graphics that are far below the standards of competing FPS titles on the system.
  3. You can be quietly gnashing your teeth for almost a minute on occasion for all the loading to be completed.
  4. If you're looking for the thinking man's shooter, then keep searching. Soldier of Fortune is all about the mindless yet blissful twitch.
  5. Apart from the controversial violence contained within, there's little of real value here. [Jan 2002, p.83]
  6. The framerate clicks in at a slow 30-fps, the controls are shifty, and the graphics are ordinary. [Feb 2002, p.61]
