Boiling Point: Road to Hell was een ambitieuze first-person shooter gemixt met RPG-elementen, die door Atari in mei op de markt werd gebracht. Hoewel het spel barstte van het potentieel, kende het één heel groot euvel: bugs, veel bugs. Het spel voelde aan als een bèta of zelfs alphaversie van een topper in wording en hoewel er best door de bugs heen te bijten was, vereiste het soms wel stalen zenuwen en aardig wat doorzettingsvermogen. Gelukkig kwam Atari al redelijk snel met een eerste patch die de grooste problemen verhielp en nu is er ook een 2.0 patch beschikbaar, die opnieuw een hele rits problemen de wereld uit helpt.
