    Fun, but too easy. Looks more like an original Playstation or N64 game then a Playstation 2 game. Controls suck untill you customize, and the Playstation can't keep up processing the game; especially in multi-player. I like the game, I just wish I would have waited untill it dropped in price before I bought it.

    Good action. Kind of hard to navigate though.

  1. Action fans will have little room for complaints, however--Soldier of Fortune promises "action movie" gameplay and delivers. Each firefight is a challenge, and the detailed, though gruesome, enemy model animation enhances the realism.

    Framerate lag (stuttering graphics) cuts into some of the more action-packed bullet storms, potentially ruining key game moments. [Jan 2002, p.222]
  3. If you're looking for the thinking man's shooter, then keep searching. Soldier of Fortune is all about the mindless yet blissful twitch.
