Dream Station: Turning Point: Fall of Liberty Review

Dream Station writes: "Turning Point: Fall of Liberty asks interesting questions. What if Winston Churchill had died when he was hit by that cab in New York City in 1931? What if America never entered WWII? According to Spark Unlimited, the developers of Turning Point, one possibility is that Germany would have moved unchecked through Europe, before finally attacking the United States in 1953. While this is an interesting premise, the rest of the game doesn't live up to that build up.

The gameplay in Turning Point, unlike the story, doesn't take any chances. Maybe it's because I have been spoiled by games like Call of Duty 4 and Halo 3, but the gameplay in Turning Point leaves a lot to be desired. The guns in Turning Point, and really, this is the biggest part of a first person shooter, are awful. I have shot countless M1 Garands and Thompson machine guns in dozens of WWII era FPSs, and the ones in Turning Point are just off. The irons sights on all the weapons seem off and make it almost impossible to hit an enemy from far away. One thing I did like as far as the weapons goes is the inclusion of prototype German weapons such as the MP50, a 3 round rocket launcher, and the like. While the inclusion of these weapons helps the game a bit, it does little to save it."
