    Once you use all the cheats for ammo and time etc.. I really dig the one man killing machine theme. There should have been more levels rampage thru over all I think it kicks ass.

    For the price, brand new, it's worth it. Its one of them games that you put in to veg out, get some stress out, and generally to just mess around. If you're critiqueing this game and saying it has "no point" and "no depth", remember, that's not always a bad thing. I ask a question, you've got ten minutes to kill, do you want to spend 2 min. on loading, 3 min. on For the price, brand new, it's worth it.

    People say this game gets repetitive, and I'll give them that. But I still think it's fun to run around shooting people.

    This game is OK for the first couple of hours... after that, it really sucks. You have to do almost same thing, again,agian and again...

    This is one of the dumbest games I've ever played, but you simply cannot get enough of the ass-kicking fun it provides. When you aren't in the mood for one of those "twenty-minute loaders", then SoE is a superfast pick-up and go. And, the bonus is it was only $19.95 - brand new, only been out for a week. You can't beat that with a bloody billy club.

    In a word...boring. In two words... relentlessly boring. Complete one mission in this game and you've completed them all...because basically it doesn't change much! Ignoring the increadibly glitchy nature of gameplay (people walking through walls, game freezes) the graphics and gameplay don't really offer much. Too it's credit, the game does animate alot of characters In a word...boring. In two words... relentlessly boring.

Ignoring the increadibly glitchy nature of gameplay (people walking through walls, game freezes) the graphics and gameplay don't really offer much. Too it's credit, the game does animate alot of characters on screen at anyone time, and the custom soundtrack feature is always a winner, but the game never really developes much beyond that. A disapointing perchase, but a good rental to have a crack at with a few mates on the multi-player, but other wise don't bother. Expand

  1. Don't bother with the single-player mission-based mode, however, as the chunks it blows are considerably oversized. [June-July 2003, p.93]
  2. In "Revolution" mode-a series of nearly identical, frustrating mini-missions-the jackbooted thugs, now armed with pistols, make life much tougher. (Deeply flawed camera views don't help.)
  3. It never really evolves beyond the point-to-point errand running through relatively small environments. [May 2003, p.69]
