holy fountain of blood........Soldier of Fortune is back....

for better or worse, Soldier of Fortune is getting a sequel. the graphics look OK i guess, but the geysers of blood and chunky bits flying around are the real stars... I've never liked this series, because it spends too much time in the death animations and bloodletting, and not enough in the AI or gameplay side. Gore porn is a better description of the genre it's in, since it seems like that's the focus of the game. it's not how you get the kill, it's all about how your kill dies and spews blood everywhere. before i get anyone saying I'm a squeamish prude, i LOVED Ninja Gaiden, God of War, and Gears of War, 3 of the finest action/third person shooters ever released, and who also share the distinction of being super bloody and violent. it's not the amount of blood that bothers me, it's the fact that the physics of the game are exploited to give a visceral pleasure at blowing limbs off and dismembering enemies AFTER they're dead. at least the before mentioned games have their focus squarely on the combat and not the aftermath. whatever, maybe I'm just getting old, but shit, this is one game i hope my nephews NEVER play.

in the spirit of playing devil's advocate, here's a clip from the game....make up your own mind.....

Can't say I disagree. It's way over the top. If this isn't considered Adult content, what is?
