If you've never played a rail shooter, what that means is that you have a few seconds in each location to get off as many shots as you can before running to the next location. There isn't time to plan, you just see the enemy and shoot. You also have to shoot extra ammo, health and upgrades during that same few seconds. In other words, if you like games where you have time to find your best spot to pick guys off from, or you like to plan how you are going to attack, then a game like this is not for you. However, if you like a game where the action is more important than any thing else. Where you like to shoot, run, shoot, run (reload), shoot, run.... then this is about as good as any other rail shooter you will find. The controls are pretty basic. You can shoot, reload, take cover (left, right or down) and throw grenades. Using a keyboard and mouse (which is what I was using) is really easy, and responds well. The graphics in this game are pretty good. The story is about standard for this kind of game (kill bad guys while trying to capture / recapture certain areas). The sound is good. All-in-all, this is a very recommendable game if you like on-rail shooters, and highly unrecommendable if you don't.
Heavy Fire Afghanistan is a budget priced on rail shooter with boring gameplay, poor music, sluggish controls, and a cliche bad story with poor voice acting to match. The game is a cover based rail shooter where you aim with the mouse and take cover with A, S, and D, you are also able to throw grenades. Right away the game falls into the problem that rail shooters have when there is no gun to use, moving a reticle around the screen and clicking on enemies is never going to be anywhere near as enjoyable as using an arcade gun or a console lightgun. The game will have your character quickly moving from spot to spot, usually when there are still enemies to shoot and the sudden camera angle change can easily cause you to shoot your allies, you even quickly walk past enemies in the environment that should still be easily able to shoot you or right past enemies that are still shooting at you. The gun sound effects are poor and shooting an enemy will just cause them to quickly fall over, there is entertaining reactions to enemies being shot that you would find in games like the Time Crisis series or other rail shooters. Graphics even make shooting explosive barrels and throwing grenades boring as there is just a tiny explosion that will have enemies slowly falling to the ground the same is if you had just shot them, even earlier 90s games did a better job than this. You should get very little or no enjoyment from playing this game.
