I have played Frontlines since it's release and I am pleased to say this is one hell of a good game.
If you enjoyed BF2 or BF2142 you will enjoy this game.
If you enjoy COD 4 you will enjoy this game.
The more you play the more you see the depth of the game. The online game is brilliant fun.
Graphically very good indeed, maybe not a crisp as COD 4, but none the less excellent.
Online play is a joy. With many varied maps with destructible buildings, fences shed etc. Think your safe in a hut, think again. The addition of special skills from repair to EMP and remote control weapons, just fantastic. Extremely easy to get into. I have a current fad for remote control stuff. Flying a remote helicopter a couple of hundred meters to explode it over a player trying to take a command point is very satisfying. Driving a little remote car under a tank and detonating it to kill the tank and any next to it, a joy.
You have EMP rockets that can effectively turn off any vehicle for a few seconds and you can hen hit it with rockets, grenades etc. EMP rods that bury into the ground and prevent any tank or such driving past it. Great fun.
Vehicles are very easy to control, I can even fly and fight in the helicopter which is a big 1st for me. If you can master the heli your on the way to chalking up some big kills.
The basic idea of online play is the same as BF series in that you capture positions and force the enemy into a smaller and smaller area where they spawn. Capture all the points and game over. It's also on a timer so if say after 15 minutes per game the game shuts down and the winners are the ones with the most points. I think it s all team play, so if your only into solo death match you may dislike this.
Single play I can't review as I have barely played it.
But to my mind this game IS definitely THE bf2 for the consoles. I am a huge fan of BF2 so that's the daddy on PC, however I bet this is bloomin close.
I recommend this game as a must for all console warriors and a very good 2nd to BF2 on PC.
