first of all this is an on rails shooter that was released in 2011 for Windows and consoles by Teyon.
there is a few things I really didn't like about this game like the camera always moving and if your firing any weapon when the camera just happens to move you will kill your own soldiers and I think I killed over 300. the fact that you couldn't move on your own and fire on your own at any target you wanted too. the gameplay is ok the graphics looked really sharp the story was almost like every other war game I have played, it kinda reminded me of one of the first Ghost recon games i played on the first xbox. but overall it's pretty easy till you hit veteran. I gave up on this game a long time ago and again decided to try it again and beat it because one of my friends was playing it. overall I liked it but didn't like a few minor things in the game but it's enjoyable if you can kill the narrator that constantly tells you when to jump or kill this guy or that guy but I couldn't ever kill him. still giving it a thumbs up because I can't get the last 3 achievements.

Heavy Fire:Afghanistan is an on-rails FPS set in the middle east where you play as the United States military.


Although a rail shooter is by no means an original idea this game does it well. Nothing special but also nothing particularly terrible when it comes to the on-rails gameplay.

+Skill Tree
There is a semi-interesting skill tree in the game using points you get from ranking up. You can buy one of four new guns,ammo upgrades or grenade upgrades, etc.


The shooting in this game feels weak. The guns aren't particularly weighty and they feel more like pellet guns than a military assault rifle.

-Repetitive Gameplay
Although this game is very average when it comes to the gameplay,the game gets very repetitive very fast. You end up almost falling asleep as you mow down seemingly endless numbers of terrorists.

-Voice acting
The voice acting in this game is just bad. There isn't much to say other that the acting sounds incredibly forced and very unrealistic.

This game looks like trash. The graphics are noticably bad as you go through many of the same environments over and over again constantly being forced to look at incredibly low-res textures.

In short,Heavy Fire:Afghanistan is a linear,on-rails,modern military shooter that really wants to be something great but ends up a mess of bad textures,repetitive gameplay,and ♥♥♥♥♥♥ voice acting that all compiles into a game you should avoid at every turn.

I guess the concept is kind of interesting... many people (myself included) quite enjoy rail shooters in arcades. So... why not take the concept, but allow people to play in the comfort of their own home. Unfortunately, without the virtual gun, and with a not-quite-as-intuitive cover system, this rail shooter falls flat. Whether you play with a gamepad or keyboard and mouse - the controls are slow and sluggish, and the movements and animations just don't feel right. This is exacerbated by the Quick Time Events... probably one of my least favourite mechanics or gimmicks in any game - there is just no need for them, and they don't add anything to the gameplay experience except annoyance.

Additionally, considering this is on PC... the limitations of a rail shooter are woefully exposed when compared to the vast array of FPS games already on the market: you are directed where to go with no freedom at all except to duck in and out of cover and pop off a few shots. Even in FPS games with very linear levels, at least you can look around a room: not so in a rail shooter.

The audio for the game is pretty terrible, the weapons and explosions don't sound good at all. They sound generic, flat, and are of pretty low quality. The voice acting complements the poor soundtrack, with the voice actors not playing their part very well at all. This is compounded by the writing: not only is the overall plot of the game short and poor, but the dialogue is also poorly written, and is completely out of place.

Then there are the visuals, which look... reasonable, I guess. Not great, but not absolutely terrible like everything else about this game. Still, the ability to be completely blinded and be completely unable to see anything at all by sun glare and the excessive muzzle flash are both major weaknesses. Realistic perhaps, but definitely not conducive to a fun game.

For me, the only redeeming factor for the game is the progression, with the ability to pick perks after missions to customise your character.

Skippable. Very skippable.

Sorry Developers of this Game but I dont have many if anything good to say about this game. It is a walking disaster, a horrible wreck, needs overhaul on all gameplay aspects or just a REDO. The character design is decent and that is about all I have good to say, I would never waste my money on this game, good thing I got in a huge bundle so it was like 20 cents. STAY FAR AWAY from Heavy Fire if you know whats good for ya. Im rating this game a 1.5/10 which is probably the l;owest score I have given, sorry guys and try again.
