Taking fire!

Although there's nothing technically wrong with rail shooters, as evidenced by the likes of Operation Wolf and House of the Dead, it's also a genre which has seen more than its fair share of stinkers (see Rambo for example). Unfortunately, Heavy Fire falls into this latter category and it's a pretty woeful offering that is best avoided. The game is set during the US operations in Afghanistan in 2011, and finds you in control of a soldier named Will who must complete a series of missions in order to emerge successfully. What this basically means is a classic on-rails shooter with cover-based elements, where your main goal is simply to mow down the hordes of bad guys coming your way. You've got some buddies out there but you need to watch out for friendly fire, while your gun needs regular reloading, and you have a limited stock of grenades as back up. In addition to the main cover-based gameplay, there are some sequences set in tanks or machine gun nests, just to mix things up, while there's also a four-player mode where you can team up with your chums. If this had been an arcade game, it might have just about offered some decent light gun entertainment, but like many such offerings, at home it just doesn't work. It's sluggish and unexciting, with gunplay that simply isn't thrilling, while the non-existent story doesn't even have the unintentional hilarity some similar games offer. The visuals aren't bad but throw in some awkward controls and other such problems, and you're left with a dud.
