This is a first impressions after 30 minutes of gameplay

Frontline Tactics is a Turn-based strategy game in the same vain as X-COM and Silent Storm. Upon booting up the game you're given two soldiers with mediocre weapons and have to kill terrorists in the name of 'Murica. I can safely say that at first, Frontline Tactics seemed really promising, sporting typical mechanics of the genre like hiding behind cover, spotting and customizing your team members. I was going to overlook the stupid AI and the bad graphics, because the game was fun. After a few missions my soldiers kept getting slaughtered by Turban-wearing terrorists, so I went over to the store page, and to my horror and disbelief, I realized exactly what this game is..

It's a trap, a trap designed to squeeze as much money out of the player as possible. When going into this game, forget everything you know about fair free-to-play models, none of that is to be found here. After completing a mission you're given money to spend towards weapons and equipment. Unfortunately you're not given enough to buy anything from the store where everything is ridiculously expensive, and just like the awful mobile games the developer drew it's inspiration from, there is a cash shop where you can buy in-game currency with real money. One look at the ''downloadable content'' on the store page should tell you everything you need to know about this game. Want different types of soldiers? Then you're going to have to pay 4,59€ each. Does this sound free to play to anyone?

You either make a game free-to-play and give gamers the tools to play it properly, and then have little bonuses and customizable items available for those who like the game enough to spend money on it, or you make us pay for the game and get everything. There should be no middle-ground. The store page is a complete and utter lie, and I'm ashamed of each and every one who rated this joke of a game positively.

Frontline Tactics is only free to play in the sense that you get to download it and play the first few missions, after that you're forced to pay to make the game even remotely enjoyable. Don't even bother downloading this travesty.

Do you have no money? Do you like turn based strategy games? Did you lose your keyboard but still have your mouse(for some strange reason)? Do you only have one arm? then this is the free game for you! alot of fun and you never ever even use your keyboard. Yup mouse only perfect for all of the single armed gamers out there.

I could not decide whether I would recommend this game or not. Frontline Tactics has some gameplay that is debatably fun but it also has some horrible cash shop elements to it that I cant ignore. If the game was any worse I wouldn't be able to recommend it but at this point all I can say is you should try it, it has some pretty big pros and cons. The game play can be fun but then the missions can be boring, customizing youre soldiers is fun but hitting a pay wall is awefull. The game just gives and takes like that.

ummm, what's there to say about this... WELL! It WOULD be a relativly fun game untill you look at the upgrades 'n stuff. It's asking you for REAL money to buy an IN GAME character, I forget how much but that's besides the point, GUNS just ONE MEASLY GUN COSTS SOOOOO MUCH, it's not even funny. There is just SO MANY PAYWALLS!!! I can NOT beat another mission BECAUSE I'm at 2 soldiers and their equiped with lame UZIs. IF there weren't SO MANY DAMN PAYWALLS, it would be an actually pretty enjoyable game, grphics arent that good and people shoot through cover but they can patch that... hopefully, maybe t's changed now because I uninstalled this game 2 weeks ago, I don't want to know, but with paywalls 2/10 for me, WITHOUT paywalls 6/10
