Rated 1 out of 10 by jman114 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.

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

It was horrible. I mean, it felt like any other WWII shooter and it was difficult to play through. I thought I could pick it up and play it, but no it was horrible. I didn't like the graphics and it was just sad. If I recommended to anyone they'd question my sanity.
Rated 8 out of 10 by gamenerd323 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.
Rated 5 out of 10 by Meilojelio 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.
Rated 2 out of 10 by Echohawk70 What Happened?!
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.
Rated 3 out of 10 by PhillyCh3zSt3ak definitely different
so i thought that this would be like CoD games, i was half right. for example: fire, sighting, and grenades are all the same as CoD, but when you go down to the specifics, it ain't so great. one of the problems that this game has is the sights, they are two small. for all of you CoD fans this is what it is like: play split screen with four people on one 19" TV, that small scope on a large TV though. that was very discouraging. great storyline, but that's about it. the only good thing that the game hints at is that history can be changed by one minor change in a major event. the only reason that i bought this was to try this out. if you were to purchase this game, do not. borrow from a friend or rent it for a few days, it is not worth the hassle of running to the store again after purchasing and then arguing the reason that you want to return it. it also seems like the AI is always set for Insane (Veteran for CoD and Legendary for Halo fans) and no matter what setting you put it on, you always get killed at this one point where there are seven snipers that always seem to kill you first before you hit them.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Fritz Could be something GOOD
I'm not gonna bash WWII Shooters. They're obviously only for the niche of people (like myself) who can obsessively play them. With that in mind, this could swerve others to come back to them. Graphics from the DEMO aside, the story is probably the most intriguing of any (Including the soon to come Sabatouer (sp?)), It's a great Alt. History take and definitely shakes up the typical formula that CoD and MoH gave us (I.E. Invading Italy, France, Germany, etc.) This one proves a little different. You can't tell me you're not into the idea of mowing down Nazi's...on the streets of New York...as the base of the White House...etc. The DEMO was a mixed bag, the graphics were sub-par, but seeing the controls in action, and things like environmental kills were cool. Hopefully it was more just a demo, and that the final product will look much better.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Stuey A Horrible Experience
After playing the demo and seeing the trailer I thought I would give it a try. I picked it up the day it came out. The next day I traded it in. The AI is non existent. I would stand in front of someone and not get a response. The screen would lock up and jitter, and it also was the first game to cause my 360 to freeze in a long time. The story seemed decent at best and the controls were pretty bad. Had this come out on the ps2 or xbox it probably would have still gotten awful reviews. The sound was about the only thing in the game that was bearable. If given the chance I would not have even rented it or downloaded the demo. Other problems with the game play was that I would get stuck in walls or hover in air. After killing Nazis they would be hovering in the air as well. It was a waste of money and time that I won't get back ever.
Rated 5 out of 10 by Big Man Not Worth Buying
Well at this time if you dont have call of duty or halo buy those instead of this game if neither if you have already both and are looking for another game wait until grand theft auto 4 or gears of war 2 which will be a lot better of a game. The gameplay in this game are alrite graphics decent, but the online mutiplayer and length of the storyline are horrible. This game looks like a great game, but does not live up to its expectations. The one cool part about this game is the explosions and certain part having very good graphics, but the controls arent hard nor are they defficult. So i would say that this is just one of those games that if you must play wait till it hits the 30s mark until purchasing. If you are looking for a good shooter Call of Duty is my top choice then probualy Bioshock or Halo as a second pick.
