The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

What do these ratings mean?

Turning Point is as disappointing as E.T. back on the Atari system. Thank God it isn't having the game destroying impact. In Turning Point your a construction worker who is on a currently being built skyscraper when the Nazi's attack New York. The visuals I must admit are just beautiful along with the far off fighting in the distance seems fierce(unfortuniately this won't translate to gameplay) with staunch AA Gun fire. After the beautiful art and cinematics this game takes a President Bush support style plummit. The overall gameplay is just awful even for a FPS and that is just unforgivable.

Even the awesome double-barreled German Panzer tank cannot save this dying sad game. Even Blacksite Area 51 was better than this! The weapons within this game are decent and one of the few good parts of this game is the grapple system used in hand to hand combat. Yes I said grapple system...Turning Point used WWE Smackdown! Vs. Raw technology and it was the best thing that the game offered to players.

After the grapple system this just feels like Medal of Honor on the PS1 back in the day. All I can say is that they attempted to change the story of a run of the mill WWII FPS with changing the storyline which I must say I do like and it is edgy. It fails terribly though. Too stiff and boring and the story moves slow along with the you against the complete Nazi army type game...again. Sory Turning Point ill stick to Call of Duty.

Buying: No more than $25 should be spent for this

Renting: Worth it if you really love WW2 FPS games.
