The epic scope of Enemy Front spans several years and key battles as it progresses from the trenches of a desolate France right on through to Berlin and a secret weapons base. Once there, the player must thwart the plans for a terrifying weapon that will all but assure a global Nazis victory. Expand

    An ambitious effort that does not come together quite as well as it could have, Enemy Front is an entertaining experience that offers a wide variety of action in locales rarely visited.

    Though it can pack a punch, this lacks the finesse to tell the subversive war story it's aiming for. [Sept 2014, p.74]

    Enemy Front lands in that unfortunate middle area where its faults aren't bad enough to leave a painfully lasting negative impression, but its key moments are too generic to be memorable.

    A brave, but ultimately failed attempt to reintroduce gamers to the Second World War. Awful AI, disastrous level design, weak textures... name a problem and this game will probably have it in abundance. Skip this.

    The "development hell" problems are quite obvious in Enemy Front. The use of CryEngine and the beloved WWII theme cannot save the mess this game is.

    A disappointing return to WWII, with sub-par artificial intelligence, limited multiplayer support and several annoying bugs.

    Enemy Front is a bad game in every way. Poor visuals, broken a.i. and a lot of bugs and glitches ruin the gameplay.

And I love the atmosphere WW II, it does not bother me that the graphics are not at the highest level. Recent materials, as for me, great. :). This also reminds me of the old CoD or MoH. The better will be played in EF. Expand

The graphics areIn my opinion the game is not bad, rather challenging and not as short as other shooters released in the last couple years. The graphics are not the best given that they used the CryEngine. There are places with low resolution textures that look quite bad for a 2014 game. I am mostly giving it a 7 due to the fact that it is a WW2 shooter game in world of modern shooters. There was a time when most FPS games were WW2. I really like WW2 shooter and there has not been one in the last couple years except for let's say Wolfenstein New Order (that is mostly an alternate history FPS than a WW2 FPS except for the introduction). There is nothing extraordinary about this game but shooting Nazis in a WW2 background is really nice. So this is mostly a 6. I gave it 7 due to the story and timeline. Also the soundtrack is really great and it fits the game nicely. Expand

The gameplay wasn’t tight and responsive; it was SLOW, TEDIOUS and BORING. Graphics were incredibly, incredibly sub-par -that I even had to double check the cover of the game that it actually was a PS3 game and not some Nintendo or PS2 game. I don’t know what had happened here, but the whole game proved disappointing. Missions were average, storyline was meh, overall -- BLERGHHHH? If you want to kill Nazis, please, please stick with Wolfenstein. Please! Expand

    Its good to have a WW2 shooter again that isn't your typical COD or MOH, but this game on PS3 is riddled with technical issues.

    Poor textures, Poor Shadows, Poor Facial animations, constant frame rate drops, jerkiness, tons of jagged edges and that's to name a few. The game is near unplayable at times due to these issues causing problems with aiming and shooting.

    CryEngine 3 does run like crap on PS3 and Xbox 360, but Enemy Front is the worst for it.

    Another problem, you can only have one primary weapon and a sidearm, which is STUPID. Why can't we swap the pistol with another gun, this would surely increase the tactical freedom that Crysis 2 and 3 managed.

    The AI is however really clever, they see a dead body they'll investigate, you can however shoot an enemy when there's planes overhead, and there's a few ways to approach each objective so Stealth is an option.

    If you are to get this game, get it on PC, it looks better and runs better. Avoid the console versions.

    Why I give a zero:
    Because the two reviews giving a 9 were clearly written by the same person. The over-praising of the game and stereotypical grammatical mistakes make me conclude a developer of the game wrote them. I find that a very, very low thing to do.

    They have to accept they launched an average to bad product.
    Don't waste your money- I believe others here already give a good explanation why. If you want to experience WW2, dust one of the older games off, watch a film or grab a book. Don't buy this.
