True Soldiers' presentation is mixed. The visuals look okay, but are well behind other games available on the system Though there are some cool environmental effects, mainly wind that affects trees and tall grass, it is hard to shake the feeling that you're playing a higher-resolution Xbox game. Yes, the lighting effects are great, but the shadows are incredibly blocky. Characters look okay, but seem like lifeless mannequins. I know drill sergeants aren't known for their range of emotions, but it would be nice if they at least looked at you while telling you about weapons or objectives.
Audio is generally pretty good. There's a wide variety of gunfire and most of it sounds pretty realistic. Smaller touches, like heavy breathing or footfalls, help inject personality into the game. Music doesn't pop up much during missions, but when it does, it has the same feel as the music that plays in the commercials, which is a nice touch.
