For as long as man has existed, he has been at war. The reasons for our eternal discord are many, though it can be said that most soldiers raise a weapon out of allegiance to their country or a belief in a religious or political ideal. Then there are those who fight not for country or convictions, but in pursuit of compensation. Called mercenaries, these soldiers of fortune enter battle with one eye in their gun scope and another on the final reward. The latest 3D shooter from the famed creators of Heretic and Hexen shoves a machine gun in our hands and enlists us as a member of these enigmatic corps. But Raven has seen altogether too many dull descendants of Doom. Instead of slabbing out a mindless romp, the design team distinguishes Soldier of Fortune with the buzz-saw intensity of authentic gunfights and a not-so-subtle graphic realism. There has been a palpable buzz in the air surrounding this title due to its torrents of blood. Or perhaps that was just the hiss of a bullet burning past our ears.
