The single-player is not bad for a free game. I'm going to have to recommend Frontline Tactics because it kept me entertained for more than 20 hours and I didn't even pay a cent.

I never played the multiplayer because I think it might have some P2W aspects, so I can't say anything about the multiplayer.

If you get past all of the bugs, dead multiplayer, bad graphics, poor AI, pay to win, weird maps, and few player choices it's not that bad of a game!

Man! The people who made this game should go out of buisness!
Oh they did? Oh dear, this is akward.

Well actually I don't mean that, really, I would never wish people out of a job but how odd that Full Control is 'shutting up shop' because their library of games are at worst 'mediocre' and at best well, above average.
While nothing in their library really stood out and grabbed me they were always playable, mostly bug free and as a company they were one of the first to notice me and take my feedback on-board, making patches fairly quickly.

I wouldn't say I have a soft spot for them but I don't dislike them by any means, how could I? There are so many terrible games with some companies spitting them out like a turd machinegun and yet they never seem to go out of buisness!

Still, you are not here to read about Full-Control, you are here to read about this game so lets talk about the game or rather what can I talk about? I summed it up already. The game is above average.
The music, sound effects and graphics are all pretty fine.
The gameplay? a turn based squad based shooter. Terrorists be stylin' and we be hatin' so go kill them all and show them whos boss.

Even now I am struggling to find things to complain about because its as basic an execution as you can get really.
I had fun with the game and I beat the whole compaign without ever spending a dime. That's right as far as free to play goes this game is 100% free with none of the stupid grind these type of games have.

It also has multiplayer too and with it being a turn based game you dont have to play in real time for the MP to work, although it seems like their is no real time version at present and given the uncertainty of FC's future it is unlikely there ever will be.

Overall the game is free so feel free (ho ho!) to try it out and if it isn't for you then so be it.
I also created a wiki for this game back when it launched, which is 100% complete now.

This game is extremely fun, you can make guys with amazing special skills and in multiplayer it's good to relax with your friends. The gameplay is not realistic but it's fun to control your men and level them up. It's good if you have friends to play with
