Soldier of Fortune: Payback has issues... the control scheme is terrible and you have no way of modifying it, the gameplay is slow paced and surreal at best. In no other modern FPS can you simply stand up out of cover and shoot the enemy at your leisure as they're bullets smack into you. the graphics aren't quite up to par, the storyline is lacking and doesn't keep you that involved, and the "boss battles" are a complete joke. However, it is still really fun! It's hard to explain, but it has a wide range of customizable weapons although the sniper rifles are pretty much useless since enemies don't appear until you're close to them, and whether you shoot with a silenced weapon or not doesn't seem to affect anything. It's simply a very enjoyable game to play, you can pick the guns you're best with and go out ond blow people apart for hours. I have to say it's not my favorite FPS by a longshot, but it's the kind of game you can put in and have fun with almost anytime and those are getting to be few and far between these days.
