A step back for game development
12 March 2010 | by TerminalManSee all my reviews

Ahh, yet another 'sandbox' game! Basically, the story (if you want to call it that) is: you must single-handedly liberate an entire country and kill the current dictator. Given that you can roam around approximately 400 square miles, this should have made a halfway decent game. HOWEVER, once you factor in abysmal player and NPC animations, unbelievably buggy scripting, baffling level design, bizarre and laughable physics, endlessly repetitive missions, almost no enemy AI, long outdated graphics, etc. etc., you are left with a boring, antiquated-before-it-was-even-released game that is sure to disappoint. To call this game a pile of...you know what...is slandering that very substance. I give this a 1/10, simply because IMDb doesn't have a lower rating. Avoid at all costs.
