  • Summary: The game supposes that the incident in which a car struck Winston Churchill in New York on December 13th 1931 actually proved fatal – and that without his inspirational speeches to galvanise the Allies, the course of the Second World War took a very different route, with the Axis Powers even invading America.

  1. This is a game for rent without a shadow of a doubt. The shortness and the general issues with it mean I can’t really recommend anything else.
  2. Overall, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty is game which had some fantastic ideas and concepts. Unfortunately, the great ideas did not transform into a solid shooter.
  3. Turning Point's minimalist approach to everything - from its stale levels and sticky controls to its thin plot and absent character development - killed what could've been a really unique and engaging shooter and will disappoint hardcore fans of the genre across the board.
  4. A good story made into a terrible game.
  5. Dumb AI, stupidly linear, crap guns... a disaster. [May 2008, p.79]
  6. Aiming is askew; enemies are dumb and the level design is bland.
  7. 20
    The game tells its story horribly, your character is both improbable and without any personality, the AI is terrible, the gameplay lackluster, and graphics middling. Even as a budget title, which Turning Point is certainly doomed to become, the game is hardly worth the bother.

    A fantastic premise brought down by clunky controls, horrible graphics and bad gameplay, Turning Point is the epitome of a great idea mishandled. The idea that the US doesn't enter WWII and the Nazis take over Europe and eventually invade the US is actually pretty cool (albeit the reasoning is basically "Because Winston Churchill died before he was supposed too, which doesn't really explain how Pearl Harbor never happened). But the mechanics behind the game are just downright flawed, and the graphics make it look like a 2001 release. Please, stay away. Expand

    One of the worst games I've played game play and graphically..
    But the story was pretty solid..
    I'd only suggest this game if you see it for
    $5 and your just looking for something to do for one afternoon.. Expand
