Soldier Of Homeland:


In Brief:
Soldier Of Homeland is a short first person shooter set in a fictional country where the protagonist called Niko decides to defend his country against terrorists and foreign invaders.

The game starts with you standing in a snowy gorge, with no way to retreat. You have five weapons which include a knife, pistol, shotgun and two automatic rifles plus an health pack. Initially ammunition is limited with each gun only having one magazine s worth of ammunition; however, within a few yards/meters of your starting position you'll find ammunition supplies where you can pick up ammunition for all three weapons (Shotgun shells .45 calibre bullets for the pistol and 7.62 rounds for your automatic weapons. Ammunition is still RELATIVELY limited so I would suggest you use your ammunition sparingly. Seems like it takes two shots to take down the OPFOR (opposing forces), unless you manage a head shot that only takes on bullet. However, longer shots may take more ammunition to take down the OpFor. I thought the N key would switch between single shot and automatic fire, but all it does is disable the firing mechanism.

The HUD shows you your health (white indicator) and constitution (red indicator) in the bottom left of the screen, and in the bottom right the weapon you are holding plus the number of bullets left and an indicator to show how many bullets are left in your magazine.


When running, your constitution slowly reduces. When it reaches zero you can no longer run. Health regenerates over time. I never needed to use a health pack throughout the whole of the game.

The game is a straightforward first person shooter, with a simple story, where you fight your way from a snow covered inhospitable landscape through to a decimated city, where you have to find and kill the commander of the opposing forces. Just before entering the city , you meet up with two resistance fighters called Borna and Olga who initially help you in the first stage, however, you are unable to wake them up from a sleep break so go ahead on your own, only to return later to find Borna dead and Olga missing. Later you find Olga tided to a cross, with the OpFor pretending to be resistance fighters, After dispatching them another story board appears, where Olga calls on you Niko to join the resistance and fight against the occupiers.

The AI is very basic and you can easily take them out taking minimal damage. Any damage taken to your health is slowly regenerated; however, if your health does fall to very low levels while still in a firefight, you can use your health pack. (H key).

The only negatives I have to say about this game are that the game is relatively short, with, at the most 30 minutes of game play; also, the A.I. is pretty dire, for example, I was entering the second area after taking out the US outpost and walked right past an Opposing Force (OpFor) who had his back to me. Also, when in aim mode, the iron sights do not line up properly, they seem to be offset to one side, otherwise the game played okay, with no apparent glitches.
Notes on Security
The game was too large to scan with Virus total, but I was able to scan it with Internxt. Unfortunately Internxt don't give a summary of the scan, so I cannot show you the results; however it did say ''No virus detected for this file''

Whiterabbit-uk, per "Internxt don't give a summary of the scan". I may have been confusing on that issue. If you mean it doesn't give a summary of scanner results, then I have. Internxt is just a single scanner. It seems legitimate and seems to have adherents/champions. Since it is the only 1 I've found that handles such large files, though I haven't done an exhaustive search, I thought it might be of some value and recommended it. Better than nothing, anyway.

If you meant something else, I apologize.

I really wanted to review today's game as it looked like an interesting take on a first person shooter. The graphics looked interesting and so forth. The problem with the game is that even on the lowest graphic setting, the game gets locked up on the loading screen and I am unable to play this game.

I've played several games, Unreal II, Unreal Tournament 2004, Half Life 2 on the laptop I bought back in July and all of them have run with graphical modifications.

So I'm not sure what to think here. And I did restart my computer with no success of getting this game to run.

sailorbear510 aka Jason,

Hi Jason,

The game looked decent enough.

I would compare it to games I played 10 to 15 years ago graphically except for the weapon skins that looked quite recent.

However, I found the A.I. abysmal and the game was way too short with approximately 20 to 30 minutes of game play at the most. Still the short time I played, it was enjoyable enough. (You'd be better playing one of the early shooters from 2000 to 2010; e.g., the original Crysis, or the early games in one of my favourite game franchises, Battlefield; i.e., Battlefield Vietnam and Battlefield 1942 and Battlefield 2), or the early Call of Duty or Men of Valor games, all from 2002 to 2005 apart from Crysis which was released late in 2007 (in Russia), and available in the UK and America early 2008.

There's a Battlefield 2 mod called Battleground 44 (originally called Battlefield 1944 and meant to be a follow on from the modders Battlefield 1943 mod that was a homage to the original Battlefield 1942 game that was released in 2002). It doesn't require the original Battlefield 2 to play and is an exceptional mod with brilliant AI (it almost feels like you're playing against real player at times). I did some beta testing of the mod a couple of years ago and it was pretty amazing, especially considering the engine used for BF2 is now 17 years old. You can find the Battleground 44 mod over on ModDB HERE.

There's also a free standing mod based on the Battlefield 2 game, by the modder that created the Eve of Destruction Vietnam based mods for the first three battlefield games, that was updated and then released as an independent game on Steam called Eve of Destruction - REDUX VIETNAM. It's not free, but when on sale is well worth getting, especially if you like Vietnam based games like I do. Finally, another excellent Vietnam based shooter called Men of Valor (released in 2004) is also well worth getting. At the time of its release its graphic was way ahead of it's rivals. When the first mission started, I found myself running across a farmer field after being ambushed by a squad of VC, who were coming out of the jungle along the edge of the field. It was one of the most intense and exhilarating moments I've ever experienced playing a first person shooting game. Even today, eighteen years post release it's graphic holds up against many AAA shooter's released years afterwards. Again, another game that despite its age is well worth getting when on sale.

A short to medium aside. Three weeks before Men of Valor was released on Steam I'd purchased a job lot of 15 unopened hard copies of Men of Valor from an online shop. My intention was to send the copies out to friends because one of the things about shooters released in the noughties, was that they all allow you to create your own server within the game (so long as you have a spare copy). This was a great way of not having to rely on developers closing down servers when they were no longer profitable, like most developers of online shooters do these days. It's one of the reasons you can still find decent communities playing all of those shooters from the noughties. Its still one of my top favourite games to play with friends, which is why I bought the job lot. So, I was really surprised to see it released on Steam after a well known distributor had bought the rights to the game only three weeks after I'd purchased the 15 hard copies. It turned out cheaper to gift the games on Steam rather than post the games to friends all over the world as it was 50% off when it first appeared. (I've still got about ten copies of the game left, lol); that said, the Steam version has to be verified every time you boot it up because an important file is deleted every time you close the game down. The only advantage of getting the Steam version is that it has all the patches and the free map pack included in the price of the game.

p.s. I've sent you a message via Steam regarding this weeks upcoming games.
