It was a disappointment. I never played SOF2 so cannot comment on the similarities between that game. However, it was so obviously made for console, you cannot even use your keyboard to type in ur username! Also, there is no chat in multiplayer at all, you cannot lean, and there is no option to modify graphics settings. The graphics itself is a disappointment, the gun models are just barley passable, and the rest would be good only if released a year or so ago. It also does not have cd key protection and no anticheat so you can figure out the rest. If it was labeled as a value game, and cost 20 dollars, then it would be a passable game. However, for a full price game it just does not compare, game play wise and graphically. The gore was pretty decent though.

There is supposedly going to be a patch that fixes alot, but until then stay far away. They better fix a HUGE amount of issues with the game in the patch or else it should of been labeled VALUE!

My opinion anyways :).

If you're looking for SoF2 remade, this game is definitely not it. It's nothing like SoF2 in its current form. The game is definitely a disappointment for SoF2 fans, but despite that, I still had some fun with the SP. MP could be ok, but the game needs a lot of work.

It was made for consoles first and foremost and thats extremely evident by no chat with MP, simplistic menus, no graphics options, you use on onscreen keyboard instead of your actual keyboard to type (in the few places where you can actually type something).

Check these 2 threads for more info:

If they take the time and optimize it for PC and add more PC features, ti could be pretty decent.

I found the gun models to be very good, imo. The rest of the graphics aren't horrible. I bet if they added more graphics tweaks they'd be a lot better.

it's definitely not worth $40 in its current state, maybe $20 would be better.

Well, for $20 the graphics are pretty good. For full price it is up against games like Crysis and such so... ;)

Still, as it stands I cannot recommend it unfortunately. It has alot of glaring issues and problems that cannot be ignored.
