Hyperion Software has announced that they have signed a deal to convert recently released pc game, Soldier of Fortune to the Amiga.
Soldier of Fortune has an almost James Bond storyline. The objective is clear, you are John Mullins, a man hired by the US government to do the impossible. You are to recover a number of stolen nuclear missiles and stop the terrorists from fulfilling their evil plans. The world is at stake.
Ben Yoris, PR for Hyperion Software boasts of its superb features stating, “Soldier of Fortune is based on a heavily modified version of ID Software's Quake 2 engine. It delivers the most realistic, covert-operative themed shooter ever created by plunging players into the secret and deadly world of the modern-day gun-for-hire via dozens of real-to-life missions, spanning five continents and innovative multiplayer modes”.
You will be pleased to know that the usual PR waffle is true with Soldier of Fortune seen as one of the hottest games to own. This game has won awards all over the place with PCGN giving it 9 out of 10 and Screaming3D giving it 92%. One Amiga gamer said of the announcement, “Soldier of Fortune is a great violent single player game, I've played it on the PC and it really kicks ass!!”. A reviewer for 3D Gaming World commented on the violent action of the game, “I love how when you fire a .44 Mag. at someone's head, they lose their head over it, its almost too realistic”.
Amiga users have broadly welcomed the news, although some people have been concerned about the kind of the specifications that are going to be needed. But one Amiga user Chris Kelley reassured gamers saying, “I'm sure Hyperion is going to do everything they can to make this game blaze on Amiga hardware”. Redrumloa's opinion reflected the views of many Amiga Gamers praising Hyperion Software as “the most commendable Amiga based company in existence doing more to support and expand the market than Amiga Inc themselves!”
