All these so-called "authentic" war-themed shooters are fine and dandy, but what if you're one of those people who thinks the gritty realism of them is a bummer? Step forward square-jawed hero, Sam, for a second outing. With a stash of noisy whack-ass weapons and vehicles, a ridiculous plot that’s so thin you could stick a miniskirt on it and call it Kate Moss, and little more to do than frag your way through a near endless succession of ludicrously designed but grin-worthy enemies, Sam is the perfect antidote to the mass slaughter of your virtual fellow men and won’t give you morality-induced headaches. What Sam will give you is hours of top arcade blasting fun.
The formula here is as simple as you like. If it moves, shoot it. Unless it’s one of the small friendly creatures that you’re charged with helping out during your quest to find the six pieces of the magical medallion that… Hell, you really don’t need to know about the story. No, it’s all about the shooting. On the face of it this is a ready-aim-fire no-brainer but there is actually a fair degree of tactical thinking required, particularly as you get deeper into the game and things get progressively tougher.
