3.0 out of 5 stars IT'S HIGH-OCTANE AND YET IT STILL KNOCKS March 1, 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I think re-reading Orwell's 1984 right about now would be a great idea. Because in a true Orwellian fashion FRONTLINES:FUEL OF WAR envisions yet a...newer world order where the US and the EU (Western Coalition, aka "Oceania"?) face off Russia and China (Red Star Alliance, aka "Eastasia"?). It is set in (the no so near I hope) future so new weapons and front-line tactical technology are employed.

This is a fast-paced First Person Shooter built around capturing points and getting territory rewards. It bears great similarities to BATTLEFIELD, yet I felt more like playing COMPANY OF HEROES from a FPS perspective. Various objectives are to be completed in order for the entire battlefield territory to be captured.

The graphics are good, although, not exceptional: CoD4 is much more impressive. The sound was nothing to complain about: your usual battlefield whizzing bullets, staccato automatics and loud explosions.

I really liked the feature which allows soldier and weapons customization - which, in an RPG twist, can get upgraded (up to level 3) as the game progresses. This is a game with a lot going for it. Unfortunately, the story does not end here.

The first star was withheld because of the short duration. FPS games keep getting shorter and shorter but 6-7 hours is way too short even for an expansion, let alone a standalone game! At this rate, in a couple of years, games will not run longer than a movie and will cost ten times a movie ticket.
The second star was withheld because of the weak Single player campaign. The missions were rudimentary designed and, even if there are challenging moments, it was painfully obvious that FRONTLINES is a game designed mainly as a multiplayer.

A good game that has some interesting features.

I purchased this game from 'Steam' and after a long, sporadic download (off and on over 24+ hours) and then some difficulty getting it to load, I FINALLY got to play this game. (I suggest, before buying, that you visit the forums to see some of the troubles people are having.)

I initially played this game on 'normal' difficulty and found that it was fairly easy; the enemy were not that strong, my buddies although useful at times, didn't seem to do much, and my character seemed to be able to take a pounding before getting killed. However, playing on 'hardcore' difficulty, gave this game a entirely new dimension; it was a real challenge (but a doable challenge).

Some comments on what I liked and didn't like: (played on single player)

1.)Excellent smooth flowing graphics, good audio (even a good 'heroic-type' music tract [usually I turn the music off in games as I find it annoying]) that was pleasant to listen to. Also, some interesting 'cut-scenes' (which you can skip).

2.)There are the usual large variety of weapons; rifle, explosives, rocket launcher etc., but there are some interesting new remote controlled 'drone' robots (both ground and airborne) that do add a new twist to the FPS concept. These units can be used either as 1st or 3rd person and once you get the hang of manipulating these robots skillfully, they are exceptional pieces of weaponry.

3.)Although specific objectives must be obtained to complete a game segment, there is no order in which tasks have to be done and furthermore you usually have several ways of approaching a target, giving the game a certain amount of non-linear play to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid FPS fun September 2, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I picked this game up at a bargain price and it was well worth it! I had read many subpar reviews about this title so I wasn't expecting much when I finally got around to playing it. I was happy to find that the game was quite a fun run and gun. Here are my thoughts;

Pros

+ Respectable graphics. Absolutely no framerate issues at all no matter how much was going on on screen.

+ Amazingly fun remote vehicles/weapons. The helicopter drones with rockets and machine guns were a blast to use.

+ Fast paced action

+ Abundance of enemies with repectable AI.

+ Straight forward and unlinear gameplay. There's no question as to what your objectives are but the maps generally (see Cons below) give you enough freedom to approach the mission how you want.

+ Decent amount of vehicles to drive, most of which have great handling.

+ Respectable soundtrack that lends to the futuristic action feel of the game. Only a few cheesy guitar rock riffs thrown in. A few of the tracks are almost exact rip offs of John Powell's scores for the Bourne films, not necessarily a bad thing.

+ Guns have a great sound and feel. I play a lot of FPS games and I tend to notice when the development team actually put time into using authentic sounds for the weapons. I noticed immediately a difference in this game vs other FPS'. There was also a wide variety of weapons to use throughout the game. My only complaint was that you didn't carry weapons over from mission to mission.

Cons

- Forgettable story

- Single player campaign is too short. I finished the game in less than a weekend.
