PC Software: Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix

Review? What review? All I know is for the last few weeks I've been running around blasting everything in sight. Sometimes I stop and blast the bad guy over and over again… just in case - but it's really to see how many different horrifying animations Raven Software would add to a game that has to be the most graphically violent to date.

In Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix, you play as John Mullins (yes, same as in the originating title Soldier of Fortune). Mullins is a mercenary who is an expert in weaponry, terrorism, and biological warfare, and seems unstoppable.

Your mission: save the doctor, save the World Trade Meeting, save Sam from the fire, and/or save the world from a bio-chemical terrorist attack… whatever, just blast EVERYTHING in sight. Oh, and when the game tries to pull you into the storyline by playing long-winded cinematics in between each level, there's a button that'll skip right through the long and plodding fluff.

Although the game is a basic first-person shoot 'em up, scenarios such as manning a jeep's or helicopter's mounted machine-gun make for some much-needed diversity. While skipping through the story, you also get to blast away with about 14 real-world weapons and 10 grenades. The weapons are fun, and each has distinct kick-back reactions, but you'll probably focus on one or two of your favourites.

The bottom line is Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix is an all-out blasting good time. If you like first-person shooters with lots of blood, fire fights, screaming and explosions, then you'll rip through this - loving every minute of it.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
