    A case of Jekyll and Hyde. Single player isn't bad, but the multiplayer is head and shoulders cooler than than the PC version, thanks largely to the clever use of the Xbox Communicator. [June 2003, p.76]
  2. This is a very traditional realistic FPS, lacking in any serious innovation, relying on the same gameplay that's worked before. However, ultimately, I found it a bit boring.
  3. Sadly, the graphics don’t even come close to the sharp visuals of the PC version--something the Xbox could have easily replicated.

    When you have "Halo" and "Ghost Recon" in your library, there's little reason to spend $50 bucks on a very average shooter with sub-standard Xbox graphics.

    Fortune II doesn't have the same visual polish or addictive team-based onlne play of ["Return to Castle Wolfenstein"]. [Aug 2003, p.112]
  6. The poor graphics and ho-hum gameplay really killed any chance this game had to compete with the fantastic games arriving this summer. Even Xbox Live compatibility couldn't rescue it from the realm of inadequacy.
  7. Relentless FPS overlords might find their pulses raised briefly by the thought of endless, generic shooting and violence, but the rest of you would be well advised to direct your time and money elsewhere.

    The online play is fun and fast. The singleplayer is a joke. But the online is worth a purchase if ya have Xbox live.
