    Once again the World War II embraces another FPS varied enough and solid. Not the best in the genre, but entertaining enough.

    Fairly straight-forward first person shooter set during WW2 with average cryengine graphics and boring story. Although Enemy Front lacks highlights or memorable levels, some of the more open areas invite the player to experiment with the optional stealth /sniper gameplay. Unfortunately, this aforementioned game mechanic also has its flaws.

    Why use stealth if brute force works just as well? Good ideas, bad implementation and lots of wasted potential.

    It plays like a poor man's Call of Duty, copying everything except the stuff that makes the series enjoyable. It's unpolished, has terrible enemy AI, impossible stealth, boring multiplayer, a badly-told story, last-gen graphics, and the shooting is merely okay.

    As dated and tired as any of the games it tries to copy, Enemy Front fails to make World War II shooters exciting again, and may actively be reminding us why we got so bored of them.

    An inconsistent World War 2 shooter that has been overtaken by unfinished AI, halfway decent game mechanics, and short gameplay duration. It would like to measure itself against distinctively more expensive game production, however, it is revealing its weaknesses all the more. Enemy Front is like universal brown sauce (UBS) – it does not have distinctive flavour whatsoever, and the next day after you finish the game – you will most likely not even remember it.

    Enemy Front has some decent ideas, but ultimately wastes its energy on redundant stealth when it should have gone the all-out action route.

    Enemy Front is a flawed game. Technical hiccups are constantly present - some especially obvious to someone like me, who is experienced withEnemy Front is a flawed game. Technical hiccups are constantly present - some especially obvious to someone like me, who is experienced with CryEngine map design.

    But beneath the flaws is a refreshing and vibrant WWII FPS. The environments are not the best CryEngine has to offer, but they are hardly ugly. About the only truly negative aspect is the fact everything is nailed to the floor. Patches seem to have ironed out the worst of the technical issues faced at launch. Voice acting is very good. Stealth is fickle, but very usable, and the weapons are varied and fun to use.

    I hope this review convinces others to give this underrated gem a chance.

    I am also interested in the possibility of modifications which could improve the game, since CryEngine is one of the most open game engines around.

    God is good to play a ww2 shooter again.
    The gameplay is pretty good , you can pretty much decide how you will succeed in your mission , go stealth or just guns blazing.
    The fact that you can pick your own route through the map makes it even cooler .
    Although it's pretty obvious they played some of the well known ww2 shooters its still a unique game.

    The best way to find out if you like this game is to just buy it , it's only 20 euros , its not like your paying 70 euros for another call of duty thats exactly the same as the last one.

    Also I see lots of people complaining about the game but you should consider that it was only 20 euros.

The story has a promise, but I was not convinced by the Rambo-like reporter. ;) With enough budget and a better team this could make a good cinematic experience. The AI is dumb as a shoe. You can finish the game with the sniper rifle which is good at any distance. The stealth elements are broken, it's always more fun to mow down the enemies with an assault rifle (or the sniper rifle!). Gameplay is clunky, this game has better visuals than the old CoD, MoH and BiA games, but is worse in every other aspect. You can play it if you find it in the sale bin and are OK with playing a mindless class B (or C) shooter. There is some fun. On overall, though, I do not recommend this game. Expand

    +++ Pros +++
    1. Interesting story and settings of WW2.
    2. 12 levels campaign is ok.
    3. The levels are different and fairly open in the first half of the game.
    - - - Cons - - -
    1. No Co-op campaign (There are 2 characters and your companion is bot only).
    2. Multiplayer is versus only and basic with only 4 maps.
    3. AI of enemies and your allies is a bad joke.
    4. Graphics are average - indestructible objects (Crysis from 2007 has destructible objects).
    5.The special ammo (panzerfaust) to destroy tanks is limited and you can get stuck or restart.

    Basic shooter for WW2 fans only.

    Bad AI.

    Short linear maps with pretty much the same thing over and over. Held my attention for about an hour, much of that being load screens. And when I say bad graphics, I mean both animations and textures are at the very least 5 years out of date. Don't bother wasting your money. Really.
