Soldier of Fortune 2: Double Helix|
(hx) 04:20 PM CEST - May,31 2002
Soldier of Fortune 2: Double Helix (SoF2) is a sequel to the Raven's "ultra-bloody" first-person shooter. While Soldier Of Fortune was a controversial hit due to its addicting gameplay and its massive amounts of blood, violence and explicit gore, SoF2 takes it to the next level. The plot is not most important part of this game, but you reprise the role of John Mullins: Weapons Specialist, Anti-Terrorist Mercenary, and "Military Consultant." A new and insidious threat has arisen in the form of a bio-terrorist organization and their two-pronged Gemini Virus. Now, you're off on a transcontinental mission to stop the terrorists and destroy the virus before it's unleashed on humanity. Simply, you're still John Mullins, and every other character is someone trying to kill you :]
Well, there is no doubt that SoF2 is even more bloodier and gorier than SoF1. While the game now utilizes the Quake III engine (SoF1 , it also implements its own terrain engine, ROAM, for massive in-game environments. The Quake III engine was definitely a big leap from the Quake 2 engine used in SoF1. Also GHOUL modeling technology has been pretty improved, the new "36-point damage system" allowing you to target even more parts of your enemies' bodies. So be prepared to see plenty of hands, feet, shins, legs, chunks of bodies/faces/heads, halves of bodies, chunky blood splats, decapitation, squirting holes, gaping wounds, bone fragments, brain globs and goodies like that :) Yeah it's pretty disgusting for some people, but trust me after one hour of playing, you won't be shocked, you will be rather bored (of course I mean single-player). It's nice to see plenty of violence in FPS, I always want it, but SoF2 provides sometime very unrealistic violence. For example, If I hit bad guy into both his hands or both his legs with M1911A1/MSG90A1, he is still able to run/fight. Simply he isn't really crippled. When I hit him into the same limb four/five/six times (I didn't hit his body or head), it killed him. It's kinda weird to see dead body on the floor with injured limb, but the body bleeding from its back (I mean pool of blood). I don't think it's problem the GHOUL engine or scripting, but it seems to be minor problem with some balance settings for some weapons, especially for MSG90A1 and M1911A1.
You can choose from various scale of weapons from your combat knife, pistol to the pump action shotgun, automatic shotgun, different types of grenades (include M15 Smoke grenade, ANM14 Incendiary grenade etc), MSG90A1 Sniper rifle, M60 Machinegun, Twin Micro Uzi, AK74 Assault Rifle, M4 Assault Rifle (with grenade launcher), MM1 Grenade Launcher, Infrared goggles, US Socom pistol, M590 Shotgun, USAS12 Auto Shotgun and plenty more. My favorite weapons was the AK-74 (one of the quickest reloads and it's pretty accurate), Sniper rifle, Uzi and of course incendiary grenades.
SoF2 begins in Prague where you have to get to that Hotel Prague, enter it and once with the doctor, follow him and he will take you to the exit point. It should be pretty simple and quick, but it isn't. In your way to the hotel you will encounter plenty of enemies which will be pretty tough to kill, especially if you choosed harder difficulty. Despite the first mission of the game was set in Prague (I live close to Prague, so it's my region), I didn't like the Prague levels - it's probably worst part of the game. I think Raven's designers should go back to school to learn where is Czech republic on the world map, because Prague in the game looks more like a city in east central Afghanistan :( Even people in SoF2' Prague (such as train dispatcher) didn't speak Czech. It's crap. Well, don't trust Raven. Prague the capital of the Czech Republic, is our most valuable historical city reserve. Since the Middle Ages Prague has been famous as one of the most beautiful cities of the world, and has been attributed adjectives such as "golden", "hundred-spired", "the crown of the world", "stone dream". Throughout centuries prominent personalities paid homage to it. W. A. Mozart, L. van Beethoven, F. M. Dostojevsky, A. Rodin, G. Apllinaire, P. I. Tchaikovsky, O. Kokoschka and also the Brittish Queen Elizabeth II and Pope John Paul II professed their beguilement by its attractiveness and architectural beauty. Sorry for this lesson of history. But seems Raven's designers never been in Prague, it's sad. I hope they won't create Berlin with igloo and Eskimos next time ;) Fortunately all other locations are much better done, especially Columbian jungle, Kamchatka and Hong Kong levels quite rocks. I must say that fighting through a jungle has to be one most memorable moments while playing SoF2 single-player. Playing along side of friendly marines (NPCs) was pretty interesting, though snowy levels at Kamchatka wasn't bad too.
SoF2 is quite long, the single player will take you over 20 hours to finish - of course depend what difficulty level you choose. The harder difficulty levels allows you only a set number of saves (unfortunately). I don't think it was good idea to limit saves with harder difficulty. After you will finish all single-player maps it's not game over yet. You can use built-in random map generator to generate endless "goal-oriented" single-player maps based on a series of settings (Assassination, Demolition, Jail Escape, Infiltration). I'm sure the random map generator is most exciting feature of the single-player mode and it adds very big replayability.
While single-player part of the game was mostly uninspiring/mediocre for me, the multiplayer component is surprisingly one of the most stable and addictive multiplayer modes ever. The maps (only 10 maps but also here you can use also the random map generator) are well designed and the action is fast, furious and incredibly satisfying. The currently available options are Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture The Flag, Infiltration and Elimination, and over 50 different character skins.
I loved SoF1, but now after years am quite disappointed from single player mode. I expected something different, something more realistic, less frustrating, with better plot and better hero :) Well, it's just my opinion, I can be wrong :) Anyway the best part of the game is multiplayer especially the Infiltration mode which is similar to Counter-Strike. If you like first person shooters and violence, it's game for you :) Download playable demo
snd: 4/5 - excellent, well done positional audio, footsteps over broken glass, atmospheric music though soundtrack could be better, very good voice acting with subtitles (optionally)
gfx: 5/5 -
Q3A engine/GHOUL2, incredibly detailed and well animated character models, fantastic death animations, quite bland environments, 36 Damage Zones Per Character Model - nice arterial fountains of blood, heads/hands/legs can be removed from bodies, weather effects (snow, rain, fog)
playability: 5/5 -
mediocre single-player/excellent multiplayer, random map generator extends replayability, single-player offers over 20 hours of fun, Parental Lockout Controls, AI appears to work well only at medium distances, unnecessary stealth missions (it's 10% game), hero and storyline sucks, underpowered rifles, occasional bugs

OH MY GOD !!!! what the hell is that accuracy ???? guns shoot all over the place veryy annoying !! only the gore is good very good needs a patch though and 1600 * 1200 gore would be sweet ! |

|this guy must be paiad by raven to write such good report, the storysline is fine , but thats where it ends, I can't blow of an arm any more , the guns won't kill any more , in the real world an ak47 dosn't take 15 or more rounds to kill it wil do it with a standard 3 round burst, specialy to the head at say oh 10 ft , this game crashed and crashed and crashed with more lock ups than any before it, why can't i have the silnencer and the lazer at the same time , on the bridge of the ship in real life , you should be able to take out the sailers on the deck but the game dosn't generate them
untill you are very near to them , so much for the sniper rifel ,the old game would run well on any old cell300 with a crap vidio and go like the clappers ,
but this one (I love q3 and it plays well on a sloww machine) slows down under action no matter how low you turn every thing down , and with it turned up the graphics are no better than the old one ( with exception the faces )
in short DONT BOTHER save your self some heart ache|

|Yeah, this game sucks ass, guess the reviewer just started it up, and played for 3 minutes.... He must have thought "Whoaaa... this seems great, I'm gonna play it, but first I gonna write a review, cause I have to be the first the write one....

|to guys who don't like SoF2:
1) I have finished the game
2) Raven didn't pay me (even didn't provide me a review copy)
3) 85% is OK, single player quite sucks, but multiplayer is worth playing!
4) The game didn't crash on my computer. My configuration: Athlon 900MHz, Geforce 2 MX/32 / 512MB RAM ,at 1024x768/16, Win98SE, 28.35 detonators|

|Have you people noticed that AK47 is named in SOF2 as AK74? Also it uses 7.62mm bullets not 5.56mm like M-4/M-16. And yeah... In some parts this game does suck but it's pretty good though.|

|SOF2 is rock solid -- especially the multiplayer. The next patch adds more content (bombing/diffusing), a few good fixes, and all subsequent patches will have built in client-server cheat protection
And unlike valve's pathetic sucky cheat protection, this stuff will work.|

|I encountered no problems with this game whatsoever; no bugs, configuration problems, crashing, etc. The single player campaign is great in my opinion, and i have yet to play multiplayer because single player is so solid. Perhaps some gamers' standards are too high; be greatful for expert craftsmanship when you see it because this is top notch.|

|Found the first SOF boring with only curiousity as to all the gore being the draw factor.
Tried out the DEMO, and thought it was very nice with graphics, but painfully crap with the gameplay. What's the point of sneaking around when they can spot you in an instant a hundred yards away in waist high foliage? Damn, I wish more game developers would look over the THIEF games and see how it should be done!
Didn't see any gore but probably because it's just a DEMO.
Gonna be borrowing my cousin's CD to test it out.
Is the multi that much better and fun? I like CS only because it's easy to find a game and my friends don't need top of the line computers to run it.

|This game runs smooth as silk for me at 1280x720. I have all detail max, except for the anistropic filtering. If you turn that down 1/2-3/4 you will get a boose of about 20-30 fps... at least i did. Personally, i think this game is great. The ai is phenominal, and the missions are in depth and thrilling. It has it's bugs, but all new games do.

|Well, I would just like to say that the people who don't like the SP mode of this game must just have different taste for thier video entertainment. I really liked the SP game and am looking forward to playing it again at a more difficult setting sometime in the future. My system=AMD XP 1800+ 512MB DDR ram, Geforce3 Ti500, Audigy Platinum EX. The game runs smothly at 1024x768x32bit if I keep the textures at the "high" setting instead of "very high". Also, EAX seems to slow down processor time a bit so I leave it on direct sound. This game was truely made for a NextGen video card. You will need at least 128MB of video ram to have every setting maxed out. Well, since I found the "sweet spot" for this game on my computer, I can say that everything ran smoothly, no crashes or lockups. The SP game was fun, the only problem I had was there seemed to be a bit of lazyness when programing levels e.g. things such as blockyness and textured objects instead of rendered objects. But, since this is quake3 engine, I have seen the same sort of things in MOHAA, RTCW and JK2 so I think this is just an engine limiter, not true lazyness.
Ya some games do look better but, can they compare to the gameplay? Not really at all. The gameplay is what it is about. Multiplayer and the RMG are enough to keep this game going for a long time. I know there are a few minor bugs but there always is with V1.0 games. I would recomend this game to anyone who likes action FPS and realism themes. Ofcourse, I am assuming the people who are giving this game bad reviews is because they have slow computers or, they don't have the game's settings set properly to have an enjoyable experience. Well, hope you try this one out, it is one of the better games out there.|

|I'm puzzled by the negative comments.
the thing runs great over here. I'm no fan of SP mode in any game though and haven't played it much. The MP component is great and will be around for a long time.
You lamorZ that can't run it properly need to go back to CS for your kicks.
In fact I will say this: The game has NEVER given me the slightest problem.|

|I was a huge SoF1 fan and I have to this all to the neg peeps out there: 1. Its a 1.0 of a NEW game.. of course there are bugs.. you guys have obviously never written a software program. 2. SP is so-so. I agree with the review in that its awesome AI in some levels, and in others the AI is "Train Tracking" so badly I was dissapointed. However for the type of game it is, I found this to be a great game. MP is where it really kicks, and in both MP and SP mode I've never had a single error yet. P4 1.4, 256MB SDRAM, Ge2 MX200, SB Live! Value. MP @ 800x600 with almost all options on very high or high.|

in real life there is a rifle named AK-74. although it doesnt use 5.56x45mm ammo it does use 5.45x39mm.
played the demo and i didnt like it that much. recoil was crazy. no way in hell does the m4 have that much recoil. i know because i own an AR15 shorty(civilian version of m4)and the recoil is comparible to a bb gun. anyways, im sure the retail game suck as much ass as the demo so i will not be buying it. what a disappointment. i was really looking forward to it. :(|

|The end score was 1 - 1 :(. I have a Duron 750, 512MB RAM and Geeforce 4 4400 (128Ram), it slows down half the time, the enemy apear to be able to hear me walk back 5 metres and chuck a grenade exactly where im standing even though there 50 metres away from me, also i was emptying an M$ into someones face from about half a metre and all the shots missed him???. s stressfull game which seems to be more easy if oyu exploit the engine rather than use normal tactics, such a stealth.|

|It's weird. Runs fine on my comp. with no problems, but the game just feels strange. Can't really put my finger on it, but something is off. Just not enjoyable. It's not BAD, but their are plenty of older games out there that are WAAAY better than this. :(|

|To him James bond. The AK74 is a new version of the old AK47, the AK74 is better even more reliable and so on. So there's nothing wrong there. |

|Not that i'm crap at games, but the game is too hard. I've played both levels of the demo thoroughly and the Columbia level cheats on you. You can't sneak up on anyone unless you crawl in grass thewhole time, which doesn't allow you to shoot or see much. The stealth aspect is a good addition, but doesn't work properly. On the Columbia level if you are spotted or heard you'll be dead in a second with a grenade at your feet guarenteed. It makes each level very hard unless you are ultra cautious, which makes the game realistic but not very fun. The weapons are good, however, and the sound and graphics top notch.
P.S. I have a P3 733, 128mb RAM, Geforce 3 ti 200 and i play the game at 1280x1024 medium textures and detail and get nbo slowdown, though loading times are a pain.|

|I admit, the storyline is pretty useless. Nothing interesting there, but you have to give the game time. I also thought the game was asscrap when I started playing it, but after just a little while, the levels get better, and more like SOF1, although not quite as good. All in all, its a good game, fun enough to play multiplayer to buy the game, and its unfair to hold it up to SOF1, because thats impossible to beat|

|Ok, no crashes with me, but the game still sucks. Grafic is mostly nice, but the line of view for the AI is as much a sick jocke as the arms are. AI sees through heavy jungle, throws back granades you even find if they fall on your head (not speaking of throwing them back yourself) and that´s called 'clever'? The Weapons: Not even a Sniperrifle kills on any other hitlockation then Head. The Granadelauncher on the M16 has a range where you think your 3-year-old sister could hurl the damn granade farer. The Weapons damageratio too is a jocke. Anything else then a headshot will need 5+ bullets to kill. But the worst of the game are the in-game-graphic sequences between the missions. Endless loadingtimes for senceless bubbling. Oh, btw.: i realy hate missions where i don´t have weapons and must search a god damn office to find a lost conferenceroom only to see a totaly boring dialog and then find the lift to get off. Only reason you don´t get a weapon there is, that you would like to shot the idiot creating such a 'mission'. If i want to search a conferenceroom, i go to work or play gameboy. Activision: thumbs down. Nexttime produce a military looking jump-and-run, looks like they could do that bettern then a 'realistic-shooter'.
And for all the ppl not having found the blood-options menu: press 'shift+'^' and type: menu lock
There you will find the proper menu. But i was disapointed with the blood too. Looks like someone droped a bottle of red wine, even in CS the bloodspray looks better. |

|I notice quite a bit of complete morons replying here.... You idiots complain about the guns, "where is the accuracy, they shoot all over the place!!" That's called RECOIL, as real-world guns would have, u can't just spray and pray, u have to burst fire. This adds a sense of REALISM you idiots! And then another one about, "I can't blow off any limbs, etc..", ever try looking at the options and seeing if you have the violence levels turned down? Or are you that much of a moron that you'd spend the time flaming the game rather than seeing if human error is somehow involved here. And then the ever so numerous complaints about performance, "Why doesn't this run good, it's made with the Q3A engine, Q3A runs good, waaaa waaa waaa" Well, the Q3A engine doesn't have 3000-polys per character model and 1500-polys per weapon, it doesn't utilize advanced features like the GHOUL 2 system, LICH AI system, ICARUS 2, etc. These all demand more from your processor, memory, video card, etc.. Finally, the load-time length complaints. Yet again, if you idiots would actually spend 2 minutes going over the game options, you would realize there are 3 individual settings that can GREATLY effect your load time, but when set PROPERLY, has my loadtimes at about 30 secs initially and 5-10 secs in game. The time you morons spent writing your flame is twice that (or maybe 10 times with these brain surgeons here) it would've taken you to set your options PROPERLY, not just turning everything to max, not paying attention to what does what. You wonder why there are groups trying to ban such games beacuase they feel people can't diffrentiate fantasy from reality, looking at the high amount of idiots in here goes to show that there are truly quite a few mindless ignorant people playing these games.|

|I haven't got the game yet, but if it is as half as addictive as SOF-Gold, soon my evenings will be covered with 'blood'! ;-D. Well I know all new FPS games that keep comin' are getting more and more hardware hungry, but there is always a way to tweak around with visuals/sound in the game. On the other hand, if you also tweak around with the video drivers, u could also get some interesting results: some days ago, I brough my Athlon 1800+ to his knees with SOF-Gold because I forced some T&L and FSAA on my GF almost to the max. Of course the other way around is possible, bringing down the amount of visual load in the game and thus getting a better gameplay for different systems.|

|This is far superior to SOF1, and I don't know what you are all talking about the game is not buggy whatsoever, in fact up to now the game is flawless in terms of bugs. The weapons are brilliantly modelled and equally brilliantly animated.
The gore is a bit OTT, but hell its only a game, I dont know what 'runt' is talking about saying you cant shoot arm off anymore, HAS HE EVEN PLAYED THE GAME !!

|Yeah the game kinda is a let down on a graphix point of view. Ok.. I never thought this would happen to me... I thought I was invincible. I just added some hot mods to my piece here (my computer) I now run a top of the line MSI KT3 Ultra mobo and get this... an overclocked Ti 4600 Geforce4 with an athalon XP 2000+. What is that? and oc'd Geforce4? Ti 4600? do we even need to oc those them cards yet? apparently so... I am going to try and reinstall the game first but I have noticed that I just knocked every detail up that I could possibly slide up or hackup in the .cfg file. That means no Compressed textures, 32bit color depth and texture depth, full anisotropic 64 tap filtering, and everything set on either "very high" or "excessive." Basically... nothing limiting in graphics quality (the same way I run the beautiful fluent Return To Castle Wolfenstein. I run wolfenstein at details beyond amazing. So I went in on SOFII with no doubt my card was still going to be untouched. After all... they say nothing has come out yet that utilizes this card thus far. But why is it, I go in with a SoundBlaster Audigy Sound card, Geforce4 ti 4600 and the fastest 512mb of DDR 333mhz ram? and not be able to play the damn game because it chops so bad I get frame rates in the low double to high single digits? is this right? The game doesnt look as slick as wolfenstein in some ways and some ways it does but it most certainly does not look like a game worth taxing a Geforce4 Ti4600 something else has to be happening to me. I just reformatted my drive and got all drivers caught up... Every other game runs fine.|

|Multiplayer: Fun for hours on end, despite drawbacks. Like the BFG in Quake, the MM1 and RPG7 remove balance from gameplay. All you do is point and shoot, no stealth or skill involved. At least with the Sniper rifle you have a "penalty" in that it usually takes more than one shot and sucks at close range (as it should).
Single Player: Has a wide variety of settings/maps and like the author says, good voice acting. The OICW is needlessly complicated to operate. It would have been nice to switch between 5.56 and grenade mode on the OICW with the mouse instead of the "[" and "]" keys. The USAS-12 is just about useless because it fires *too* rapidly and has far too much recoil as a result. Don't know why Raven switched the firing rate of this weapon between MP and SP. Game difficulty is rather high, even on the Amateur setting, and I'm by no means an amateur. Thankfully SOF2 allows a custom setting.

|i've been playing Ghost REcon lately then I got SOF2...I think I like GR better because of the weapon choices (with mods) and the "reality" of the game... I don't want to knock SOF2 because i do like it but I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE HK MP5SD with a laser sight just like on the cover of the box...where'd the MP5 go?! Anybody else wonder this?|

|this game rules, it's challenging, try to play it for a while, just till the moment you got that shotgun in your hand, hehe, btw to all those who don't like it, i didn't like the game from the start, so i sugest you play a litle bit further!!! the game rules but don't set the textures high!!! else the game will realy slow down near fences etc. btw i can't get the multiplayer to work anyone know a solution??? it says invalid key, i don't have a invallid key i'm sure of that!!!|

|Guys if you like cs fine but did you know how many times it has been patched up. Shit loads of times. Sorry it doesnt work on your pc but you know what im running this game on a laptop with a geforce 2 go gpu and its fine. I toned down the graphics a bit and it works great. Multiplayer is the best in this game. Singleplayer i dont know but at least they got ai chucking nades at me instead of being typical and ill hide in a room and i shoot them all. |

|I can only judge the game by the SP demo an MP test.
I liked the Sp, because its well... exciting, i mean in the seaward star level(not so nice in architexture), in the small hallways of the ship, i was spooked many tims finding a guy around the corner who i did not know he was standing there.
I couldn't see all the gore in the demo, in fact there was no gore at all!!! not even blood, probably thats because its a demo.
As for the multiplayer.
I could only play one level and i am still not tired of this!!!!
This is the best multiplayer game i have seen after TFC!!!!!
I'ts just plain fun playing with your team as like if u were a highly trained squad team who were just about to infiltrate a building full of bad guys.
As for the preformance, I played the multiplayer with everything set on high and it didn't schoked or something except when there was lag(but this is your i-net connection)
And teh demo, well you couldn't change much about the settings but i do know i have not have seen any preformance problems on each Sp or MP demo and my system is a p4 1,4 128 ram geforce2 mx200, I was amased myself i could still enjoy these graphics with my out to date card.
Overall I like this game, good gameplay but what i have seen of the cut scenes, well they suck.
Please excuse me for my bad english, i'm from belgium.|

|Played the single player and had not complains, I started playing the multiplayer now I can't stop. It is very addictive. I got a P4 1.3,128R,ATI AIW Pro, this game runs very smoothly in PC.|

|The only setting I've set below maximum is the texture quality, with compressed textures. The game gives me a nice 50fps on the following system: Celeron 1100; Geforce 256, 1024 MB RAM.|

| oh my god there really must be some reeeeally stupid people out there. i dont actually have the game yet but still. u people r freaking stupid. i agrre with idiothater 100%. did u ever even THINK of looking at some of the options? the Q3A engine was severely modified in this game u dweebs. ur gonna need a cpu thats been updated since 1970. i wish some people would use their brains. and if ur complaining about shooting all over the place y dont u go and try and kill 500 terrorists by urself? i bet u wouldnt be complaining about ur damn recoil then. its sad to find out that there r people out there that need to buy a "Logical things to do on ur computer for dummies" book. >=(|

|I think this is one of the phattest games out there. I don't know why they got such terrible reviews. the game is novce and smooth on my machine, and the guns are sooo accurate in mulitplayer after the 1.02 patch. BLOWS AWAY MEDAL OF HONOR!|

|In my opinion SOF2 isn't so good as SOF1 was.I expected better graphic details and lots more. Othervise it's ok, bot now I hate it because I'm stuk in Kamchatka and I can't find the exit.|
|Buy This Game NOW!!!||posted - Dec, 14 2002 - 15:38|
|If you like the look of this game...go get it. It is awesome. All of you people who had bad things to say about it are f***ed in the head.
this game rocks, i have completed it 3 times and am still not bored with it. Multiplayer is awesome, even for modem users.
i havent seen graphical violence surpass this game, its great to see someones hand blown off and laying on the ground behind them
true it can be hard, took me a fair while to beat the first level, but it was worth it|

|I have been playing the multi-player demo for over 6 months now and still play it more than I will anything. I give this a 10.0 by far. Single player sucks. You must have a fast computer/graphics card to really enjoy this game. Don't tell me it's not good, I play everything, and this game is the best (MULTI-PLAYER DEMO). Get me right ok. I play the multi-player demo not the full. I also have cable connection and if you get ping over 150 its no where near as fun! BEST GAME EVER (DEMO oops) better than any full game! |

Before u correct somebody about the caliber of a weapon first make sure u know what u r talking about. The AK-74 is NOT a 5.56 it is a 5.45x39mm round. Not trying to be mean or anything but its ture.|
|Mike Wilson||posted - Jun, 01 2003 - 17:20|
|Well, i was one of the first people to ever play this game, i was a beta tester, and i got the multiplayer demo after we released it. It truly is a facinating game. Although it is fairly old now, popularity has not died.|
