Heavy Fire: Afghanistan for the PS3 is all that its cracked up to be. It's an old school shooter for old school gamers. If you ever played "Operation Wolf" in the 1980s and loved it, then this game is for you.

Sure the action is on rails, but this is what an old school shooter is all about. And this is what today's gamers do not know, and thus, are unable to appreciate.

I loved this game from the minute I started playing. The graphics and sound effects are outstanding for a $20 game. The developer, Teyon deserves high praise for designing a genre of game that has been missing from the FPS category, and one that belongs in any gamer's library who appreciates old school gaming.

With that said, Heavy Fire: Afghanistan comes HIGHLY recommeded for shooter fans who are willing to give Call of Duty a rest for a few hours to play and appreciate this old school game.

Sure, this is not a top tier shooter, but if you are looking for your first game to play with the Move sharpshooter accessory, this on-rails shooter is great for getting used to this type of interface. As a rental it's a few days of fun. I wouldn't buy it, but I think the really low GF average rating is unfair.

This game got such a bad rating, I thought the game was really fun. It reminds me of alot of the older arcade games. I think people thought it would be like call of duty and other shooter games. I liked it, but that only one mans opinion everybody should give this game a chance.
