Soldier of Fortune: Payback is the third installment of the Soldier of Fortune game series. Unlike the previous two Soldier of Fortune games, which were developed by Raven Software utilizing the Quake 2 and Quake 3 engines, Payback was developed by Cauldron HQ, developed with Cauldron's in-house CloakNT engine, used in their previous First Person Shooter game, Chaser. This game is the first game of the series released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game was released on 14.November.2007. Upon being refused classification by Australia's OFLC, Activision released the game on February.28.2008 in Australia.

This mod alters the, IMO console-oriented, HUD of the game into a smaller and more subtle HUD. It is specifically designed for 16:9 resolutions, but it...

It kinda resembles unreal tech to me, but hell if I know what engine it uses, definately not CryEngine2... Wasnt all that bad of a game though, but agreed its definately not worth a AAA title... It would pass as a good indie game
