What a Waste of Money!!!,
This review is from: Turning Point: Fall Of Liberty (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
When i read other gamer's reviews and they say "After playing a game for an hour i put it back in it's case and took it back to the shop". I always wondered, maybe they did not give it a chance or maybe they have not progresed in the story enough.But after buying and playing this game....i now understand. i waited for this game to come out for a while becuase the story intrigued me, such as the nazis invading America, blah blah blah. But this is the biggest waste of money ive spent and ive never took a game back to the shop's untill now.
The story: The story is very promising, Nazis invading America, WInston Churchill died,europe is under the control of the Nazis. Sounds great. But thinking about this you would expect, this to be like the game 'Freedom Fighters', which was about the russians invading America, which was an excellent game. Anyway the character you play is dull, there is no Character development at all, none whats so ever, you really don't know what's going on half the time, you have to keep looking at your objectives. You think such a simple story line is easy to follow but it aint. Whats realy wierd for a construction worker, is suddenly able to shoot loads of germans and then suddenly the National guard treat you like your part of the army. What the hell is the deal with that?!?
The Graphics: For a next gen console, the graphics look more PS1 and early N64, it had the same graphics as the first ever original Medal of Honor, it's really that bad. Everything is very square and there is no Dimensions. The settings are bad graphicly, you look a pictures on walls and there just a pixalted and everything is completely square. The enemy graphics are just as bad they have no features and they look exactly like the enemy out of 'MofH'.
The Gameplay: The game play is sluggish, at some parts when i was told to do something by someone in the game, it would not let me do it. For example i was told to pick up a gun and it would not let me i had to kill myself then restart from a check point to let me do it. The shooting is just plain crud, the bullets do not react right, there's no hit projection. You shoot someone in the head the dont die, shoot someone in the leg the die straight away. What the game developers have tryed to do is this mele grab thing on an enemy and then use them as a sheild, its like they tryed to make it awe inspiring, but it falls dead on its feet.
Sound: To be honest you aint realy going to be concentrating on the sound, you be amazed how rubbish the graphics and gameplay are....Trust me!
After buying this i took to my nearest game station and traded it in, i payed £32 and gamestation gave me £35 for it, so thats not bad news. Traded it in for Vegas 2. Now that's an amazing game, buy that instead!
