The game that had the potential to beat the Battlefield Series but failed utterly in its attempt and ended up being a massive dissapointment when it got first released. But it's not all bad, just not very good either.At first look it may be great: graphics are amazing for it's times, optimization is excellent, you have access to bunch of vehicles, weapons and toys to play around with! Then why many consider it as such a bad game? Because of its feeble gameplay! This game is seriously lacking in the fun factor. Every shot you make feels 'meh' , every vehicle you ride and every point you capture all feel somehow lacluster. It's like there's just no fun in doing anything in Frontlines, not because of the graphics, or the sound nor even the controls for that matter! But because of the game itself. It could be great, as it is - there's many better shooters for you to choose.
Frontline has an interesting setting. The world is plunged into a new world war. Why? Because of the fuel. You see, there is not much petrol left so the countries are fighting each other for the control of it. It’s something that you would expect from a Tom Clancy’s book. But that’s all. It isn’t developed much during the campaign and there is no likeable character here. Even your protagonist is pretty noname. Frontline tries best to reproduce the gameplay of the Battlefield series as a single player game. So you have big maps with lots of vehicles and npc killing each other. But you also have the most forgiving respawn system ever made. As a matter of fact, you don’t need to be careful, even in the hardest setting. Because when you’re killed, you just reappear at the last checkpoint... with no progress lost. This makes the game super easy and boring because you can just run in the enemies trying to kill all of them and complete your objectives in a suicidal attack and it will eventually work. Boring.
I bought and played this game way back when it first came out and I really liked it. The graphics are okay, the game mechanics are neat and your AI squadmates are not complete morons. However, since the online servers have now been shut down, this is strictly a single-player experience now. Still, for 10 Euros, you get a decent amount of play for your money.
