The latest from developer Spark Unlimited has arrived, but will Fall of Liberty be able to provide a worthwhile experience?
First Impressions: Whenever possible, we try to give our loyal website viewers the most video footage and most in depth unbiased reviews imaginable. Part of that development is our "initial impressions" where we offer up our first impressions of the title that we are playing.This gives our website visitors more of clear understanding of what to first expect out of the game when they initially pop it into their consoles. If you scroll to the bottom of the page in the Rent vs. Buy section of the review and do not see the "final impressions" assessment then it's safe to say that you are reading our initial impression of the game. Once the final impression is up, there will be no further video or review done to that particular title.
Final Impressions: The final impression is just that, our completed breakdown and overall thoughts on the game based off of our entire game playing time.You can locate the final impressions assessment in the "Rent vs. Buy" section of the review (always located at the very end of all of our reviews). Here you will be able to read our final thoughts on the title and also see any potential grade changes that were made to the game as well (higher or lower). Should a grading change occur, it will be clearly noted with the previous grade, the new grade, and why the change occurred. Although this approach is more time consuming and requires many more man hours, our entire goal has always been to provide the best and completely unbiased reviews possible and we feel that the inclusion of the Initial Impressions and Final Impressions sections will give you a better view of what to expect from a new game. All that we ask in return is for you to continue to support Krakrabbit.com by visiting the site and letting others know about our cause. Together we can supply our fellow gamers with the most impartial information so they can make an informed decision on whether to buy or rent this particular title.
What If: The story of Turning Point: Fall of Liberty revolves around a "what if?" scenario.When a taxi hits British Diplomat Winston Churchill in 1931, he survived (but walked with a cane for the rest of his life) and led Britain to defeat the Nazi forces. In Turning Point, we are told that he died, and by 1953 the German Nazi take over Britain. You will placed in the shoes of Dan Carson, a construction worker who rises to the chance to kill Nazi forces and push them out of Britain. The story is overall a pretty nice concept, but it does not progress quite well enough to keep your attention for very long.
Doom Sans Cool Weapons Or Monsters: Turning Point: Fall of Liberty features some very run-of-the-mill shooting mechanics to use in combat.You will move through increasingly repetitive environments, killing a slew of German Nazi baddies with some unoriginal weapons. The enemies in Turning Point are astoundingly moronic. You will be able to open fire on a Nazi from thirty-steps away while rushing toward him, and he will not take any notice until you are bashing his brains in with the butt of your rifle. At first, being able to literally beat all of your enemies to death with your gun is kind of fun, and is great for a quick laugh. After the first four levels go by and you are still able to do that, the game gets very annoying.
Why Did I Buy This: Turning Point: Fall of Liberty also features a horrible multiplayer mode that allows you to battle with your friends online in eight-player matches.The multiplayer in Turning Point is, in a word, brain-numbingly bad. You will have to be blessed by God himself if you want to find a full eight-player match to play in online, and equally lucky if you find even a match with two people in it. The pace is horrible, there is no excitement at any point or time, and the multiplayer is just plain boring. It would not be surprisingly to start up a match, pick out your weapon, and literally fall asleep before you find someone to kill.
Rent vs. Buy: Turning Point: Fall of Liberty is quite simply a crappy game that fails spectacularly on every level.The bad graphics and clipping issues, horrible pacing, lack of excitement or anything cool to see or do, repetitive gameplay, unoriginal weapons and a multiplayer that will make you want to kill yourself absolutely destroy any chance Turning Point had of being even sub-par. No one, absolutely no one should ever play this monstrosity of a game for any reason besides to torture your worst enemy.
