Heavy fire Afghanistan is a generic on rails shooter with a generic story.
Actually I think calling the story generic is giving it too much credit
You’re just some dude named will that wants to be a marine
You don’t care about this guy or what’s going on, you just point and shoot while the game continues forward
The aiming mechanics feel way too sensitive for this game to feel satisfying and the levels all look identical and have no color making this 3 hour game a drag to go through.
And the 6 axis controls aren’t sensitive enough having you annoyingly flinging your controller around trying to progress.
After the end of a chapter which is split into 2 missions you can upgrade a perk such as health or reload speed in the skill tree.
These are actually helpful as you can die fairly quickly especially since the game really has no hit detection system, you don’t really know you’re getting shot until you’re dead
You’re focused on the enemies, it’s impossible to keep your eye on your health meter on the bottom left of your screen.
This lack of hit detection or automatic health regeneration leaves to many frustrating parts in the game, top that with not being able to see some enemies behind the glare of the sun forcing you to just blind fire until you get lucky.
This game isn’t worth your time.
The only good news is that this game has a quick platinum, but even for trophy hunters I warn you this is probably one of the most boring platinum trophies you will obtain
Your 6 hours with this game after you beat it a 2nd time on veteran difficulty will feel like 60 hours have passed.
This game isn’t fun, it’s a boring grind fest.

Playstation Official Magazine AustraliaFeb 2, 2012It's fitting that the developers are called Mastiff, because this game looks like a dog's breakfast. Each mission is a waterlogged shamble through the land that time and PS2 forgot, where you'll have to re-kill the same six simpletons over and over. [February 2012, p.75]
Dec 23, 2011Your enjoyment of Heavy Fire: Afghanistan will be directly proportional to your expectations. There is absolutely nothing that is exceptional about it, which, in my opinion, is just fine as the cost mitigates the quality. It functions as it should, and as long as you don't walk in expecting Call of Duty, your feelings won't be hurt. Much.
