I could barely put this game down! It has basically the same qualities that you would expect from a first-person shooter game, but with personality. The ability to shoot your opponent in numerous locations, making the combat seem more realistic, brings a sort of flair to the game. However, those of you with weak stomachs may wish to pass on this particular choice. On the other hand, for those of you up to the challenge, Soldier of Fortune will keep you on the edge of your seat and ready for anything the enemy can throw at you.

As great as the one player game is, how are the multi-player features of Soldier of Fortune for the Dreamcast? Well, in addition to the lack of online play, there are no multi-player versus modes in this game. Obviously, Crave wanted to concentrate on the one-player experience but it would've been pretty cool to take on a buddy split screen and shoot him up in various body parts before giving him the mercy he deserves. Still, we should be very glad that Soldier of Fortune is here on the Dreamcast at all and there are certainly many reasons to get it. Just make sure of two things before booting up this game: (1) scoot all the kiddies out of the room as this is definitely not intended of kids and (2) wait a full hour after eating a meal before playing this game. Get those things out of the way and get ready to explore a new world of delivering pain in 26 ways.

Although there's some room for improvement, Soldier of Fortune is a good port of a good PC first person shooter. It's a pity Half Life didn't join it on the Dreamcast. There's really no point in buying this game now when even average PCs today can handle the PC version on the highest graphical settings without a hitch, unless of course, you can find a really cheap copy. What's interesting to note is how poor the PS2 version is in comparison. I almost cannot believe how much of a turn for the worse it took.

Well In view of it all, I really enjoyed my days playing this title. It does not offer a mind - blowing experience (then again, what games do?) but as a good night in with a few beers and the video-nasty voilence of it all, on the Dreamcast at least-its now cheaper than most PSone titles if you look about, its a must have. Now where's my gun?

On l'aura compris, Soldier Of Fortune sur Dreamcast c'est le jeu qui devraient réconforter les joueurs déçus par l'annulation d'un Half-Life très attendu sur la console Sega. Certes, le mode multijoueur qui faisait l'intérêt de la version PC est absent mais on se consolera de cette absence tant la sortie d'un tel titre fait plaisir sur une machine au destin si tristement scellé.

Soldiers Of Fortune lijdt aan veel te lange laadtijden en dat frustreert enorm. Desondanks een leuke game die de DC-fans zeker zullen diggen.

Dependiendo de la habilidad del jugador, SoF puede tener entre unas 15 y 20 horas, aunque probablemente parezcan más, debido a unos tiempos de carga absurdamente largos. Sin ser ninguna maravilla SoF se convierte en el mejor exponente de los FPS para un solo jugador dentro de Dreamcast, más bien por deméritos ajenos que por méritos propios.

GameSpot (Jul 02, 2001)
Soldier of Fortune is a decent-sized game stocked full of plenty of ammunition, health power-ups, and body armor. The enemy AI is often quite dumb though, so it's almost unnecessary. Soldiers who pop around a corner to shoot at you sometimes will promptly forget that you're there, and some opponents will simply stand still waiting for their guns to reload (or waiting to be shot). Your biggest challenge in Soldier of Fortune for the Dreamcast is finding something to do during the long, boring parts that bookend the action. It's true that we should all be pleased that the game is being released for the Dreamcast at all, but the loading times detract greatly from what is otherwise a very fun, if a bit too straightforward, game.

Overall, Soldier of Fortune provides the same old first-person shooter action, but in a slightly different format. Sure, the gore alone will keep you entertained at first, but once you discover the game's detailed graphics and subtle effects you'll be hooked. Let down by only a few niggling flaws, Soldier of Fortune is a game that first-person shooter fanatics will love.
