Turning Point: Fall of Liberty
I have bought and returned three games and it froze in the same place every time, great game except for this.
i would not recamend...
I would not for any reason recommend this game to any one.For starters the normal mode is the difficulty of hard on any other game out there.Second the graphics were T-E-R-R-I-B-L-E it looked like some was in some much of a rush to make this game they put terrible graphics in.Third IT WAS TO SHORT 3 chapters with 3 levels in the chapter.Fourth its to easy to die it all ways seems the enemy has unlimited grenades.Fifth the player gets kill in a matter of a couple of shots were it seems it takes forever to kill the enemy ambushing you or just trowing grenades at you from there hiding place ether from a rafter hanging or on top of a building were it seems your own grenades cant hurt him or just plain in front of you and the he just wont die one good thing about the game and the only good thing is the plot the nazi Germany attacks America.To wrap things up I hated the game all other games have better graphics and push the console to its limit.
Give it a break
I'm not going to lie, this game was pretty fun, I rented it shortly after it came out, I liked it. And I bought it today (dec 7 2009) . Graphics: The people look terrible, but the enviroments are top notch, but ounce again, my 11 year old cousin draws better people than those in turning point. Gameplay: A fun mix of brutal turok style close quarters and call of duty shooting with a little splinter cell acrobatics and you can even use your enemies as human body shields. Interface: Nice HUD layout, similar to wolfenstien and call of duty. Plot: An alternative reality were Nazis attack on American soil. Sound: Decent voice acting, a cool soundtrack and some neat sound effects. Challenge: Gets a bit easy but it's fun and exciting. Length: 4 chapters with several long levels in each chapter. Controls: Great control layout. Similar choices: Call of duty, wolfenstien, turok, splinter cell. Better choices: Call of duty, splinter cell. Equal Choices: Wolfenstien (wolfenstien is between better and equal choice, but if you had to chose, go with wolfenstien). Worse choices: Turok.
Well I think its great BUYYYYY ITTTT
Well first off i think this game is frickin awesome yeah so what the graphics are a little bit choppy. But what i look in game for is well the gameplay and i think it has a great story line its not that hard but pretty fun. Like when you can grab and enemy from behind and take his gun and use him as cover. So if you havent liked any other codemaster games this isnt for you but its cheap i love and if i were you i would defitnetly buy it or at least rent it. This story lin is amazing who would thought of a game like this i mean really but the nazis winning the war would have changed everything. i would like to see a sequel like another war like the war today the terroist winning and stuff that be very cool if you ask me so if your not into graphics then this game isnt for you get it peace
I saw the preview for this game I was estatic: it had the story, it had the hype, it had the cover, it had a good preview. what it didn't have: IT. I can't really say what is wrong with this game but i'll try, the beginning was nicely set up the environmental kills like pushing a German off a building or strangling him with his own gun was a nice touch but it was very repetitive. the aim sucked and the nazi's had no brain whatsoever. you could sit there with a machine gun and fire it at 100 nazis and only 5 of them would shoot back while the others ran in a circle. your allies suck and spend most of the time shooting at a knocked over building like in the first level i found my allies shooting at the knocked over Chrysler Building while i took all the nazis. the guns look horrible and so do the people. if you do have interest please RENT THE GAME FIRST. it had potential but couldn't be the great game everyone thought it could
they could have done better with the graphics . The gameplay was okay, but that could have also been better. The game is okay.
Someone Else should have Developed This
Turning Point had a n excellent concept and great story, but the gameplay was horrendous. The game lacked an acceptable array of weaponry, it had the "endless-wave-of-enemies" glitch, and the graphics were average. What i did enjoy was how it connected with the common man willing to fight for his country. I did not like how your character never spoke (from what I remember). I also like the dramatic twist ending.
Low recommendation. Worth a rental, but not a purchase.
I borrowed this game from a friend at school. He told me that it was a good game. I played it when I got home and I thought that this game was alright. I thought that it was creative to have the nazi's start ww2 5 years or so before when it really started. The graphics are pretty good for a New York City scene. Some of the tricks that you would do on the Nazi's are pretty cool. My favorite was the one where you would start sufficating a guy and then start shooting at other guys that are shooting at you. The guns were pretty good like the thompson. The M1 Grande was also pretty good. The German weapons were alright. This game would be good for anyone that likes action and shooter games. I would definetly like to play this game again hopefully soon.
Turning point - 180 degrees and walk away
Turning Point: Fall of liberty has a 'what-if?' type of plot, bringing a fictional history of Nazi Germany invading America and having the cliche' protagonist conquer the axis of evil all alone with his eyes closed. The protagonist is all alone because your artificial intelligence team mates are just artificial. The thought of the stories scenario is last bit of enjoyment you will get from this game, because as soon as the game starts the controls are sloppy and all interface elements are ripped off from triple A titles of this genre. GameStops' price for this game to own is lesser than I would spend on renting this game so it was a deal. There are not all negatives to this game, I liked the sci-fi enhancements to the guns that the Nazis held, there Nazis garments and killing Nazis. Turning Point is a game to enjoy if all else fails, or a need to give as a gift to your casual gaming friend or family. I did not really have high hopes, more like hopes that I expected. For the price I bought this game I would recommend to anyone whom likes mindless shooters and is interested in the plot.
When I first heard of this game, the concept sounded great. A shooter depicting what would have happened if we never entered WWII until it came to us. I got it the day it came out, went home, put it in, and was dumbfounded. It reminded me a lot of a playstation 2 game. The graphics, gameplay, sound and controls were quite close in that matter. Really, it was a sad attempt if even. You went against mobs of nazis and they never got any smarter, tougher, or different physically. And the plot was extremely unbelievable. Do you really believe you could assasinate the Nazi controlled president?! Come on! It may have been original, but totally unbelievable. The controls were complicated and extremely hard to get used to also, which didn't help my already dismal outlook on this game. All around, I give it a 3 out of 10. A definate, do NOT buy. And don't even waste * dollars to rent.
