    When i try to remember this game - image of crap pops in my mind.

    Stupidly looking characters created the terrorist fighting organisation, and in every mission handicaped enemies are trying to stop our god-blessed saviour of the universe from ruining their plans, bu...

    It had potential, but...no, Soldier of Fortune will be forgotten very soon.

    Soldier of Fortune is just another average shooter, nothing ground-breaking or revolutionary about it. It's not a bad game, just that there is nothing we have not seen before. In Soldier of Fortune...

    Actually the FPS game that started it all for me, so I have to give it some love.

    Back in very early 2000 (Feb) I saw this little diddy on the PC Gamer demo CD and wondered if my PC could handle it. After buying and installing one of the early 3dfx Voodoo PCI cards (with 16MB of...

    Bloodthirsty

    Soldier Of Fortune is a very bloodthirsty game and players will often find themselves in serious firefights with weapons such as rocket launchers and EMP launchers. The game is very enjoyable even...

    Heads being blown off by one shot, killing bad dudes by throwing a knife to the neck, is amazingly awesome!

    Soldier of Fortune is not a realistic game. I first played this game at age 10. Okay, I was young and downloaded the demo from GameSpot, thank you very much. I was amazed by the graphics since I didn'...

    Enough gibs to make a little boy cry.

    This game is ludicrously gorey. Right from the begining cutscene you'll know it. A hostage is situation is in effet in the subway of New york and the Criminals behind it deside to waste a captive. ...

    One of the few shooters out there to this date where you can blow off peoples limbs!

    Rated on July 27, 2007 by Romayo83

    I loved that part of the game. I have'nt seen any other shooter like it. Even in Gears of War! Typical story mode the levels were fairly well done. I don't know why Gamespot put it as hard difficul...

    While the damage model is great, the limiting save system and linear nature of the game holds it back from greatness.

    Rated on May 09, 2005 by mclazyj

    Soldier of Fortune takes a rather simplistic license and turns it into a game that has a great story and a gimmick of very realistic violence. However, its flaws hold it back from becoming a great ga...

    One of my favourite FPS of all time!

    Rated on July 16, 2008 by ccooke

    SOF is one of those cult classics that everyone has played or at least knows about. It was one of the uber gore soaked games that the ESRB feared and PC FPS warriors loved. SOF is best known for its d...
