Enemy Front is a World War II themed FPS game. This game kind of snuck under the radar, as I can't remember it being released. You play as an American war correspondent who is caught up with various different Resistance groups across Europe during the war.
The game uses CryEngine 3, so you can safely assume the graphics are going to be top notch but you will need a fairly hefty rig to play them on full though. I am not sure why there is so much lens flare going on, since normally games have silly amounts of it to make up for lackluster graphics.
Game play wise, Enemy Front is an FPS at core, but there are quite a lot of times where stealth is required, the stealth parts of the game are actually a lot better than the gun play, I loved sneaking around the enemies base sabotaging lighting systems, distracting guards and finding alternative routes through rooms. It's certainly not on the level of Dishonored for stealth, but it is refreshing to see a World War II include it as a feature. Another aspect that is done very well, are the Sniper sections; what's better than sitting back hidden in the trees popping the heads of Nazis? Can't think of much! It's so satisfying to see groups of guards become so confused as their comrades slowly start dropping to the floor.
That brings me onto the AI, sadly it's not the smartest, you can be shooting your un-silenced gun in clear view of a guard, and he won't notice you; sadly this removed some of the immersion for me, leaving me a little confused at times whether a guard will hear me or not in some situations.
Each of the levels in Enemy Front are giant. There are about twelve levels in total, and each one has lots of hidden secrets, pick ups and Easter eggs to find. There has been a lot of work put into the environment here which most people will probably just pass on by, but there is a lot to see if you take the time to explore buildings and rooms off the beaten path - nothing that will effect your game play though.
I didn't find the game to be over difficult; there is a nice gentle raise in difficulty as you progress through the game so you don't suddenly become overwhelmed. You certainly get the "Bad @ss" feel when you manage to mow down a squad of enemies all on your own, and you will quite easily be able to take on more than just a single squad too.
The single player story took me about eight hours to complete; as I said above, there are about twelve levels to play through, each level has several objectives and secondary objectives if you wish to play it too the full. Secondary objectives only really offer ammo resupplies, so you don't really miss out on much if you skip over them.
So to conclude, I would recommend people consider picking Enemy Front up. The game does come with a pretty steep price tag, and I believe I picked this up for £10 off ♥♥♥, so at that price I think I have found a bargain, but I wouldn't say it's worth the full £29,99. Keep your eyes out for when this drops below 50%.
