Soldier of Fortune II migrates from the PC to the Xbox in this port from developer Gratuitous Games. The Xbox version retains all nine missions found in the PC original, taking players from the streets of Prague to missions in Switzerland, New York, Kamchatka, Columbia, and Hong Kong. Players once again assume the role of John Mullins, member of an anti-terrorist organization called The Shop, as he infiltrates various locales for hostage rescues, gathering intelligence, or taking out terrorists using a combination of stealth and weapons skill. Fifteen armaments range from knives and sniper rifles to M60s and grenade launchers.
A key component of the PC original was its multiplayer support, which has been translated to the Xbox version via the Xbox Live broadband network. Featured multiplayer modes include deathmatch, team deathmatch, elimination, and infiltration. Elimination is played with two teams positioned on opposite sides of the selected map. The goal is to eliminate all members of a rival team before they do the same to the player's team. Infiltration also involves two teams, one red and one blue, with the blue team trying to steal a briefcase and return it to a helicopter ready for takeoff. The red team's goal is to guard the briefcase and attack those who manage to capture it. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
