Lone Soldier is a 1996 PlayStation-only 3D run and gun game by Telstar and Tempest that was released in Japan and Europe.
The player is a lone commando tasked with stopping a terrorist group from launching a nuclear missile.
Why It Sucks
- The controls are sluggish, making it hard to aim.
- Your movement is very stiff and slow. To make things worse, you can sprint for an infinite amount of time, lessening the game's difficulty.
- Whenever you finish a level, you lose all of your weapons except for your default Uzi SMG.
- The camera is situated right behind the player character, instead of being isometric, giving the game a false impression of being a third-person shooter rather than the run-and-gun it really is.
- Atrocious graphics, even by PS1 standards, looks like an enlarged GBA game
- Terrible sound effects and voice acting.
- Terrible FMV cutscenes.
- No music outside of the aforementioned cutscenes. The musical score in said cutscenes wasn't any better than the in-game sound effects.
- Extremely lazy localization. The Japanese version is completely in English; the only trace of Japanese are voiceover translations of the opening and the ending.
