Reminds me of namco's "KillSwitch". It's becoming quite appearant that Jowood just can't get it done.. All the other games I checked out from Jowood were failures..

Soldner really sucked, i tried the demo had many problems trying to get online and then i did and what do i get? a really poor game.

Plays like something you expect to download from a shareware site.

Yeah, it was pretty bad. I don't think it lasted more than 2 hours before I uninstalled it.

^ sarcasm ? If not you really have to take a good look at your self cause that is by far one of the worst assault based fps I have ever played.

Yeah, Poor attempt really... All Jowoods ideas are pretty good, but just can't implement for some reason... Just can't make it happen..

Maybe they should license the CryENGINE for their next game?

It's a beta that has had 2 updates since it's initial release...and the sdk will be released with the game... can you say the same for FC?

Honestly it's apples and oranges.. FC turned out to be a big single player game with a smidgen of MP thrown in... it's basically a UT style of MP.. run, gun, and rocket spam...
Soldner isn't....
now if you want to talk about enviroment... yeah FC has plenty of eye candy.. but how big is FC's universe? Soldner's is roughly 2,000x 4,000km wide open... the server can choose to set boundaries or not...
you can take a remote spot on the map and make a completely new multiplayer map with custom objectives with relative ease...

So what if the SDK will be released, an SDK for a crappy game is like putting a bow on dog poop, it's still dog poop.

I played JoWood's Silent Storm demo... did anyone else notice that they copied the interface and AP system from Fallout?

----------------------
Yeah, but it could be more realistic. When you die, the game should be deleted from your hard drive and your serial number permanently invalidated.

It's Nival Interactive's Silent Storm, not JoWood's. And the AP system wasn't copied from Fallout. It's closer to XCom or JA than Fallout. Which, as far as I'm concerned, is just fine. And while we're at it, anyone notice Fallout copied the interface from XCom? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

It'll need alot more than 2 updates for me to ever bother with Soldner again.

MORE CHOICES = MORE BYTES = MORE LAG

I tried the first beta and managed all of 30secs of gameplay in about 25 tries.

For some masochistic reason I even downloaded the second beta and managed just over 3 mins before it crashed.

It's not eye candy, but it had some good ideas on paper. Just doesn't feel right at the moment though.

I will probably download a release demo, but nothing before that.

soldner was the bastard child of raven shield 1 and battlefield 1942. Great idea, shame they added the line of code

// make game exceptionally lame and laggy

Tried out Soldner, they have lots of good ideas but cant them in the game. What is with 3rd person fps's i dont like that "rogue spear" type gameplay where you go 3rd person to see around corners etc.

-They have huge environments yes, but crappy low textures and repeated environments.. The one thing i found cool is the damage system. But as of now that game is sub par. I would take FC anyday.

Van B.C. the place to be!

I am 89% addicted to Counterstrike. &lt;a href="http://seanism.com/addiction/cs.php"&gt;What about you?&lt;/a&gt;

Hate too say it, but i also last about 10 mins with it & turn it off with a complete uninstall.

Sad part is i had high hopes of that game. maybe they shouldnt releash no demo's from now on until the game is done & almost all the buyers have alrdy sunk there money into it like i would have!

No i stand unsure if i want too get the game at all...

wtf is this? The graphic looks worse than CS it is very, very buggy and gameplay is awful.
If Jowood intends to prevent potential buyers from buying this pice of **** they are quite successful (at least as far as I'm concerned).

It's a flop.. They're just gonna release it next month and hope recoup some of the loss.. Besides, There's at least a few fanboys over there that might be willing to pay $49 for Soldner, You know, The ones that were saying Soldner Will Own all FPS's, Like BF1942,, and Farcry...LoL Hell, it kinda makes even WWIIONLINE look good, Hahha!!

men of valour.Hi guys as anybody played men of valour yet and if so did you experiance problems with your graphics when I bought the game I found out that my graphics card wasnt good enough to use,when the game was released they should have put the graphics card recomened on the back of the game on not when you come to load it for me to play it I have now got to shell out 150 for a new craphics card if you havent played it yet what happens when you do play it is that all the scenery is silver I have tried to down load the new drivers for it but it is still the same so be warned.
