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.

On-Rails Shooters are fun when done correctly, Heavy Fire: Afghanistan is no exception. It is easy to be put off this game because of the large number of negative reviews, but most of them are people that are complaining about the fact that it is an On-Rails Shooter, despite the fact that it is clearly advertised all over the store page, resulting in the game having an unfair overall review score.

Heavy Fire: Afghanistan is fun, fast-paced and very atmospheric, qualities that you would hope for in an arcade-like shooter. The maps are really well done creating a very immersive and grim atmosphere, as you would expect in 2011 Afghanistan, the sun is blazing making it difficult for you to get a clear view of targets and there is heavy enemy fire coming from all corners of your view. The chaotic gameplay makes this game more challanging than your other average On-Rails Shooter games too, a perks system and multiple achievements are also nice touches.

The aiming is a little finnicky at first, but you get used to it very quickly, plus the controls are extremely simple overall so it takes little to no time to master them. There aren't many faults with this game in my opinion, just some minor things like small grammatical errors in the campaign dialog and some questionable voice acting, not to mention the anti-climactic death sequence, but that's about it, nothing ultimately hurting the fact that it's a fun game.

Sure, On-Rails Shooters may be from an era that is now long gone, and it isn't as popular or as good as The House of The Dead series for example, but that doesn't make Heavy Fire: Afghanistan any less of a well-made and fun game, just make sure you know what kind of shooter you're actually about to buy before you make the purchase. As far as I'm concerned it is more than worth it's £1.99 price tag, definitely recommend for a few hours of challenging and rewarding fun.
