Enemy Front puts you in the shoes of an intrepid American reporter covering the war’s more inglorious theaters. Though it's packaged as a first-person shooter, it feels more like a puzzle game with guns. Case in point: I'm early in the single-player campaign, and I need to blow up a bridge in the French countryside. The main path to my objective is stocked with a half-dozen Nazi strongholds, and when I'm spotted, all the soldiers come pouring out as though they're controlled by an alien hive mind. After dying over and over again, I accidentally discover an alternate path that lets me flank everyone, sneak my way to the bridge, then watch it come tumbling down without firing a shot. That discovery makes me feel smarter, and it’s far more rewarding than blasting away hordes of enemies.If you’re saying to yourself “oh man, I hate stealth games”, don’t sweat it; Enemy Front still gives you plenty of opportunities to blow stuff up. There are scads of missions where you rush through bombed-out buildings in close-quarters combat, manning machine guns, sniping from church towers, and destroying tanks with Panzerfausts. These action segments are smart punctuation to the larger missions where stealth is clearly the best path to success.Almost as impressive as the variety of action Enemy Front delivers are the areas you’ll explore. The bombed-out horrors of Warsaw are strikingly juxtaposed with the bright French countryside and the bitter cold of snowy Norway. Even the loading screens contain gorgeous, original 3D visuals that depict moments in time from the viewpoint of very different character-- army officers, terrorized civilians, and nonchalant soldiers doing their duty.Enemy Front also doesn't hold back on controversial subjects. At various points, you’ll come across depictions of atrocities being committed against civilians and partisans--and if you don’t act quickly, you’ll be confronted with the nasty results. Choosing to rescue a person who's about to be executed may be a heroic act, but it also means getting discovered and attacked by the enemy. Later on, you’ll have a harrowing walk through a barely-functioning Warsaw hospital that's under constant bombardment. In its crumbling halls, dying people beg for assistance--you can choose to help them or not. There are few easy choices.That said, I can't help but wonder if Enemy Front was too ambitious a project, as there are a host of problems that really detract from the experience. Transitions in and out of cutscenes are very rough, and the sound mix makes it difficult to hear what characters are saying over the orchestral score. You meet a host of characters as the story unfolds, but the brevity of the conversations doesn't explain your transformation from a notebook-carrying reporter to a gun-toting one-man army; why exactly are you willing to risk your life for these people you barely know? What's more, bizarre moments are frequent. Watching a fellow soldier fire an invisible rifle through a window is a bit strange, as is seeing an unmanned rifle flop around on the floor, repeatedly shooting at the walls as though it has some sort of grudge against concrete structures.Then there's the AI characters and enemies, whose behaviors are often erratic. Enemy soldiers rush right at with the intent to kill, then stand there for a moment or two before opening fire.The single-player campaign is the heart of Enemy Front, but there is a functional--if bare-bones--multiplayer component as well. Featuring three run-of-the-mill modes and a handful of interesting combat arenas, it offers little depth and feels tacked-on.In some ways, Enemy Front succeeds in standing out in a crowded genre. Impressive visuals and expansive levels merge create memorable locations. And though some stages very obviously award stealthier playstyles, the gunplay is enjoyable when you're not overwhelmed with enemies. Unfortunately, a raft of weird bugs, mindless enemy behavior, and a multiplayer mode that feels like an afterthought shoot Enemy Front's potential square in the heart.Overall 6/10.

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%.

This game really needs a "meh" review option.

The game reminds me of the old "Medal of Honor" games. A lot of that vibe has stuck with this game, just with updated graphics. Honestly, not terrible.

The problems however:

Bugs galore: texture issues, models that clearly were not finished, dodgy hit detection, etc.
Crap "AAA" features: tried to make the game "next gen" and succeeded in taking only the worst stuff. On full graphics, the game is simply painful to play, as you walk around in a motion-blur-lens-flare-reflecting-light fest.
Characters: terrible voice acting, terrible characters, unbeliveable story. I liked the setting, but it was simply to wild to believe, and the game took itself too seriously. (or at least tried to)

Worth it if you remember old WWII FPS's and can pick it up for $2.50-$5.00 as I did. It will give 7-8 hours of gameplay, it's worth a playthrough. Not worth a dime more though.

Enemy Front is a WW2 shooter with an original setting and decent story: sadly a few issues and unimpressive production value keep it from being truly great.

Pros:

-novel setting,you join the Polish resistance and fight in Poland,France and Norway

-interesting story

-nice graphics thanks to CryEngine 3

-good sound design

-nice amount of different guns to use

-good variety of levels

-optional objectives during missions make things a little more interesting,also collectibles for those so inclined

Cons:

-cutscenes are somewhat low res

-movement feels a bit jerky at times

-poor enemy AI,while mostly functional it often just charges in the open,stops moving or doesn't react to casualties

-no lean/cover mechanics mar gunplay a bit

-while the story is interesting it falls flat in truly giving an emotional attachment to characters

-a few bugs here and there

-multiplayer is dead

I got this game for 4 dollars,and for the price it was a pretty interesting and fun ride.

It can be clearly seen Enemy Front is a product of love,sadly it didn't come out as great as it'd be,whether to a lack of budget or lack of testing I cannot say...but considering the lack of WW2 shooters and the fact it can still offer a decent 6 hour campaign I'd say it's a good purchase on sale for WW2 aficionados.

*has tears in eyes*
I cant remember the last time i played good WW1-WW2 FPS game.And i am a BIG fan of WW FPS games,The last game was COD 2 ,after that nothing special was made ,at list not for me
And than this game come out.
To me this is a WW2 FPS masterpiece.
Amazing graphics with beautiful beautiful environments.
Really nice selections of guns,silent and not silent guns,
You can play the whole game silent,to pass all enemies undetected.Or you can choose to fight your way through like rambo or like every FPS game ( I chose a logical rambo way ofc )
Not sure why this game have low scores and all critics say boring slow game.To me this is a great great game
i will say dont lisen to ANY ONE,play it your self and try it.
I dont see any bugs and glitches ,perfect on that end.
Enemies are hard,playing on normal difficulty ,i am daying maybe way to mutch aaahh ,but maybe that is just me because i am going in like rambo,but sill having fan.
So checks it out .i recoment this to all ppl
10/10
