For those who dont want to god mode. It is not easy but the game is not hard. You can't run and gun, you can't zerg, you have to 'take your time' with each mission, not like 30 min. I complete a very low threat mission in 5-8 minutes, and walk away with at least 30k, from a mission that has a base pay of 18k-21k
This game is simple and easy to use. point and click for movement, for attacks, and use of Skills like smoke bombs. The combat is like many other tactics games, which is I assume, why you went seraching for a tactics games. You deploy your troops, outmaneuver your opponent, have better positioning and over come the odds.
Some of the people reviewing this game seem to be upset about the "paywall". I had
almost everything unlocked, with out ever spending a dime. Will I spend some money later? Most likely, I like the camo outfits I can get. But I wont be paying for unit upgrades. You can get upgrades from in-game credit. The enemys will not use anything you dont have.
If you dont have access to stealth units, the enemy team will not have one. IF you have access to Snipers, then so will the enemy team even if you dont deploy a sniper. So you have plenty of time to accumalate a lot of money and then deck out a new trooper with a new class, new guns, armor, and skills. The balance I fill is well done, It is a tactics game, you have to out think the mission.Keep your guys alive, you get money for doing so, Get crossfires, you get money for doing do. outside the base payment for missions, you can really rack up some cash with crossfires. I can get 30k-40k off a mission that was only going to pay out 20k. SKILLS, Skills, Skills, SKILLS
Pay attention to skills.
It will take about 4-5 missions to get a new peice of gear, or skill.
After every 5 mission wins you get an unlock you get to choose from new mssion types, an extra trooper or lots of cash, and even new skills.biggest issue, I got a new computer, and when I reloaded Frontline, I had nothing unlocked. It is a big issue, Steam has cloud save, Frontline should be able to incorperate.
Not so big of an issue, It does take time to gather the reasources to deck out a new trooper. But not so much that I did nto have fun doing so. The time it takes does give you time to learn the new class you just acquired. Also, The lets go kill brown guys who all have brown guy names, cliche and over used.
