I've been thinking about getting SOFII, so I checked around, and it got some great reviews, but I would also like to get the personal opinion of anybody who's played it.

Has anybody here played Soldier of Fortune II, and if you have, what did you think of it? Is it worth buying?

Love it, damn good game.

Its a damn site better than medal of honour. The only real lameness is that you get folk running around only using the knife as it only takes two touches to kill someone.

Worth checking out servers with the random maps, IMHO thay are brilliant but thats just me :)

I find all team games boring, but that's just me.

You may find it better than most.

Much more popular than OFP and you can mid-game join, whereas OFP you could not (killed the game).

Check out the popularity of BF:1942:

The worst that can happen is you try the demo and not like it.

SOF II is your basic FPS, nothing new to the genre, mediocre story, mediocre multi play. The only unique thing it has is that it is the bloodiest/goriest game ever. No joke. Play it on full gore and youll see. I sugest getting a demo of it. Think of Counter Strike, or some other more tactical round based fps played on the QUAKE 3 ENGINE and you get multiplayer. Not much staying power in the long run....

About Battlefield 1942. Well, the MP is the most fun I have had in any online game, so, yes, save your money for this. It's like Tribes WWII style....but really, really, good.

The bad part about 1942 .. is there more things to do - so you really require an organized team to work with. Might as well not even hope for that in a pub.

As most highly team-focused games, you'll get your run of idiots in pubs that will either not bother you, or you'll end up playing with just friends - but even then the heavy focus on team-work may make you feel relatively expendable.

Deathmatch is really the best way to play any game.

The gun clipping in SOF 2 is horrible.

Walk near a wall and your gun sticks right through it giving away your position.

RTCW is wicked and the graphics especially in SP are superb, but it lacks one thing,-----> AK47

with better guns RTCW would probably be my thang again, are there any mods for it?

Probably Depends on what type of FPS you like.

Some BF 1942 fun...

1-Pick an engineer as your specialty.

2-Plant a crap load of dynamite on the hood of a jeep (it falls out if you put it in the back).

3-Drive into a crowd of people.

4-Jump out and push the detonator.

5-Piss about a dozen people off...

And that very well sums up the BF 1942 pub experience.

That's a mild example? Holy shazbot! Then again, I have an ironclad stomach when it comes to gore.
