    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.

    This game uses the worst, the most f***ing stupid save system ever conceived by man, THE CHECKPOINT. Horribly, horrendously placed, whichThis game uses the worst, the most f***ing stupid save system ever conceived by man, THE CHECKPOINT. Horribly, horrendously placed, which makes you play almost an entire level if, God forbid, you died or exit your game to take a piss or smoke a cigarette. We're playing on PC guys, with TENS of buttons on our keyboards, not on some antiquated piece of hardware with only TEN buttons on its controller. It's ROCKET SCIENCE to implement a HARD SAVE and QUICK SAVE system for a PC GAME? F5 / F9 rings any bells for you? Six thumbs down for this.
    It's rocket science too, to have a FOV slider in a PC game menu.
    At least, it can be modified in system.cfg file. Thanks Makemake for it.
    EDIT: FOV is vertical. Set cl_fov 55 -> 64 in system.cfg if you want horizontal FOV 85 -> 95 and less headaches.
    The so-called "stealth" implemented for nothing. Good idea but badly implemented. It takes a complete rotation of Haumea around the Sun until you killed some German soldier (looong and useless animation like stabbing in the back 3 times!) and a blink of an eye to be detected by the whole goddamn Wehrmacht for doing so. Better go Rambo-style. Be aware though for Rambo-style. You'll die quite fast on medium and with the horrid checkpoint system, you'll probably eat you keyboard bit by bit too.
    Weird graphical glitches, pink Polish resistance soldiers with black faces in the sewers. I had to restart (evidently!!!) some level to make them disappear. Another thumb down for this.
    I cannot say that graphics are THAT bad and obsolete (as I saw in some so-called "professional" reviews). This cheerful and colorful style is not at all THAT bad. Quite the contrary. Besides, it runs very well on high settings even on old computers. Some problems with V-Sync though. If OFF, horrible tearing, if ON, framerates droppings. Better OFF and enabled ON in your video card setting. One thumb up. For cheerful and colorful palette, I mean.
    No stupid wall hacks. The game is inconsistent though with marking the enemy with binoculars. Sometimes works, sometimes doesn't, which is kinda annoying. Either make it work OR do not implement such system. Even marked, you have to open your eyes quite well to see the enemy and that grants you (game!) another thumb up.
    Even if are a bit linear, levels are quite large with many routes to take. Another thumb up.
    You were not afraid to use swastika as the proper symbol for the era, but you replaced it with some black cross in the Nazi emblem which kinda spoils the broth. Some sniping so-called elite WW2 shooters avoided the symbol like hell, which was very bad for immersion. History is history guys and cannot be discarded or wiped out. Avoid like hell the political correctness BS, not swastika in some silly WW2-era games. Swastika was the symbol of Nazi Germany (flag, emblem, coat-of-arms, decorations) and it is the symbol of Jainism.
    Have a six from me.
    Not THAT bad.

    Enemy front is a very mixed bag over all , and although i did enjoy my time with it its not a game i would recommend unless its on a wickedEnemy front is a very mixed bag over all , and although i did enjoy my time with it its not a game i would recommend unless its on a wicked sale

    Story; the game had a very good concept to the story and a previously ( at least not to my knowledge) unexplored front of ww2 , the polish resistance and liberation of Warsaw witch i really liked. Other than a good concept this games story is a mess being all over the place. this game had more flash backs than an average arc of naruto, its jarring to say the least . On top of that the script is awful and the lines are just awkward and characters have very little time to grow. other than the initial concept the story is just awful
    Story: 3/10

    world building: world building in this game is a weird one and i think it was unintentional. its world war 2 and most of the world is taken from history. and that's OK real world is rich with its own history but enemy front doesn't seem to do anything with this besides what we've seen before. the best part of its world building is its literal locations , the country side of Poland is beautiful and you really can see why some one would want to fight for it
    Worldbuilding: 4/10

    graphics: graphics are the best part of this game , lighting is excellent and locations are mapped out really well. hlf of the animations are stiff and clunky , while others are well done, there is a lack of quality control. bad direction is seen throughout this whole game and its a worst game for it. over all the graphics could be a little better but the textures and great lighting make up for it.
    graphics: 7/10

    gameplay: this was such a standard fps that tried to shoe horn in stealth sections when it really didn't need them. stealth was an option the whole game but its pretty redundant. i beat the story by just going guns blazing and it worked. enemy ai was awful , i lead a group of nazis through a gate and they came at me one by one , i just picked them off. i can tell it tried to be a little different but because of bad game direction the game came out average
    Gameplay: 5/10

    Sound design: the music for this game is good but just the individual tracks and their use in game is awful . transitions are awkward and sudden. the voice acting is awkward at best and guns have such repetitive sounds i wanted to plug my ears every time i had to fire a mp40
    sound design: 3/10

    3+4+7+5+3= 22
    22/5= 4.4
    in conclusion enemy front was a bad game from a developer that seems to always put out good looking shooters only to have them be soulless husks

    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.
