  1. I truly believe that, had they given the development at least another few months to beef up the visuals and sounds and maybe even add a bit to the campaign itself, this could have been a great game, possibly making a few top 10 lists along the way.
  2. And while it’s a solid enough shooter that’ll largely cure the itch for frag-heads, it just fails to do anything to particularly excite.
  3. Turning Point: Fall of Liberty is a novel idea on paper, but is ultimately let down by its shooter by numbers gameplay and under par presentation.
  4. Sadly, you will battle nearly as many bugs as Nazis through the course of Turning Point. For all the game gets wrong, which marks about ninety-eight percent of the game, they deserve credit for at least writing a solid, heroic ending to the game. The trick is plodding through four to five hours of bad to get to the thirty-seconds of goodness.
  5. 35
    It's ugly, it's poorly executed, it's riddled with technical glitches, its A.I. is laughable, it's boring, unoriginal and thoroughly unrewarding.
  6. If Churchill had died, we might all be speaking German, but at least we wouldn't have to put up with nonsense like this.
  7. In many ways Turning Point: Fall of Liberty is playable, but there’s so much unredeemable dross that you should seriously question why you purchased the game when every other FPS on the system is far more deserving of your money.

    Not earth shattering, but fun and interesting.

    Honestly, this game isn't terrible. Is it a AAA shooter like Call of Duty 4? No. But is it worth picking up when the price drops to $25 Honestly, this game isn't terrible. Is it a AAA shooter like Call of Duty 4? No. But is it worth picking up when the price drops to $25 or so? I think so. Controls are a little wonky, but the experience is something you'll probably enjoy while playing. It won't change your life, but it's different and it functions so that's good enough for when the price significantly drops. Expand

    An ok Xbox game, trouble is it is playing on the Xbox 360, ie... retro graphics and gameplay - needs harder work.

    I think that the only reason people defend barely playable pieces of junk like this is that they are in denial that they spent 60+ dollars I think that the only reason people defend barely playable pieces of junk like this is that they are in denial that they spent 60+ dollars and they don't want to admit wasting their money. If this came out four years ago on the XBox it might have ben more tolerable, but in this day and age, something like this should have been cancelled before it hit the sehlves. Way too many bugs, outdated gameplay, framerate problems, and weak graphics. I am glad all I did was a free rental. Expand

    Wow, this is one crappy game that I am extremely disappointed in. I had some reasonable hopes for this game that were completely destroyed by Wow, this is one crappy game that I am extremely disappointed in. I had some reasonable hopes for this game that were completely destroyed by a total and utter lack of quality of any kind. The graphics are poor, adopting sort of a more cartoon/animated feel as opposed to the more realistic games that have lately come out. The story was pretty shoddy, with the typical "I'm an average joe, I don't know how to fight wars!" but somehow still manages kill hordes of incompetent nazis. The hit detection is amazingly frustratiing, with seemly invisible walls (no other way to really describe it) protecting the nazis that are seeking cover. A good example of this is when a nazi is crouch behind a boulder; despite crouching, I can still see a good two-thirds of his torso, but none of the shots hit when I try to shoot above the boulder to hit him. Look, I'm a pretty good shot in video games, so I'm pretty damn sure it wasn't user error. I ended up running over to him to blast him a point blank, but I did have to go around the boulder before doing so. The last nail in the coffin would be the terrible AI. I watched a nazi soldier shoot at me for a good 3-5 minutes, which isn't remarkable in itself, but what was remarkable was that during that entire time a fellow nazi was beating the crap out of him, meleeing him constantly while his "teammate" was attempting to shoot me. Eventually I put them out of their (and my) miseries. Don't buy this game. Rent if you REALLY want to suffer and you are a masochist. Or just download the demo. Stay away from this game. Expand

Worst game concept ever: What the? Seriously, you were a construction worker!And all of the sudden,a paratrooper shows up and stands there,like he was induced in coma upon landing waiting for you to take his gun.Then you can grab him and swing him left and right endlessly until you decide to throw him down.Then suddenly you are a master shooter who can also resist taking 30 bullets prior to death...and the AI is ridiculous.Guys with rifles RUSH you.The supposed successor of the G43,which was semi-automatic, is bolt-action in the game.Not to mention I threw a grenade towars an enemy once,and guess what he did? He walked up to it,looked at it waiting for it to be nearly exploding,and KICKED IT.He didn't throw it back at me he KICKED it.And he kicked it in a random direction,not at the assaulter.Worst even he kicked it to a wall,and the grenade bounced back and exploded on his face.If anything,I loved the demo for giving me that image which is as of today the most comical fail I've ever seen in a videogame.
