Default Re: SOF3 Payback Feedback Thread

These quotes from a Gamespy review sum it up nicely.

Payback puts you in the role of a mercenary who you don't care about who's double-crossed by an organization that you don't care about during a mission that you don't care about. The plot is so generic that it could have been bought off of the shelf at Wal-Mart, and the voice actors deliver their lines with all the urgency of the guy at a drive-thru reading back your order to you.
Another nice feature is the way that the game defaults to "no" when it asks you if you want to restart from the last checkpoint. It's as if it's trying to save you from itself.
As bad as the level design is, the enemy AI is even worse. Your ethnically ambiguous insurgent terrorist enemies fight like British Redcoats in the Revolutionary War.
