About This Game

ENEMY FRONT is the first truly modern WW2 FPS, featuring stunning visuals, open-ended levels and a richly interactive combat experience that breaks out of the standard model of highly linear scripted FPS experiences, giving the player full freedom to own their playing style. Intense Combat, Sniping, Stealth and Sabotage – all are viable approaches for the player, maximizing player engagement and replayability. Against the visceral backdrop of breathtaking European locales, the player takes on the role of American Robert Hawkins, as he fights hand in hand with Resistance Fighters opposing the Nazi juggernaut in France, Germany, Norway, and during the Warsaw Uprising.

  • Choose your own fight: gameplay blends fast-paced FPS action with precision sniping thrilling stealth, and deadly sabotage in the first open-ended WW2 game.
  • Deal death from afar: use sniper rifles to decimate enemy ranks and pick off officers, enemy snipers and heavy weapons gunners with deadly precision.
  • Breathtaking visuals, interactive environments and spectacular action across many iconic Resistance operations of WW2.
  • Choose your own weapon: full arsenal of WW2 weaponry across all categories of hand-guns, SMGs, assault rifles, sniper rifles, as well as signature Resistance weapons including the Sten gun, Welrod Silenced Pistol, and Lightning SMG.
  • Own the battlefield: combine reconnaissance, explosives and marksmanship to prepare, misdirect and ambush numerically superior Nazi troops.
  • Engaging, destructible environments and advanced tactical AI means combat is always a rewarding and dynamic experience.

This game is hard, even on the
medium difficulty. Its checkpoint
saves, and sometimes its brutal
between saves.

On the bright side, the DX 11 graphics
are beautiful and the gameplay is good.
I would recommend this game to fps fans
of WWII games.

If you're an old school PC FPS gamer, don't get this. It's a really ♥♥♥♥♥♥ console port.

The company who made this is so cheap that they didn't even bother including PC menu icons. Press ENTER to continue! Press X to continue! It's a small feature, but when it comes to ♥♥♥♥♥♥ console ports, that's a major red flag to me.

I played it 6 seconds into the game I was behind a crate with a BAR shotting incoming waves of germans which all came from 3 spawnpoints. I shot one mag, ducked down to reload, looked back up and saw one german standing behind another which was behind a crate shooting at me. I could already tell that meant the AI was maybe even worse than Red Orchestra bots. (great game, horrible bot AI lol).

I won't ever attempt to play this crap again, no matter how bad I wish a new WW2 FPS came out.

Have you ever thought to yourself "You know what would be really cool? A game where you play as a reistance fighter, stealing supplies and ammunition from the enemy, using sabotage and hit and run tactice to strike back at the Nazi war machine." Well then good news! Enemy Front does not let you do this.
In Enemy Front, you too can go on (now famous, but at the time top secret!) British SOE/Norwegian commando raids as an American journalist for some reason, or sink famous German ships that never actually sank until after the war.

In exchange for the ability you have unfortunately lost the power to leap over even small fences, thus making it impossible to go anywhere the devs don't want you to go, but at least you can freeroam inside the nice little linear road they've set out for you. Plus, there's those convenient little infinite ammo boxes every twenty seconds, which is good, because otherwise you'd be at risk of running out occasionally and would have to conserve your ammunition, since you only carry four reloads for any given weapon (regardless of whether this is 20 KAR98 sniper rifle bullets, 20 KAR98 bullets (which are somehow different) or like 400 PPSH rounds) at a time.

Thrill at the nonscripted pleasure of running away from an exploding building down a fixed, linear path, then being knocked down by an explosion and helped back up in a cutscene! Not once, but twice! It's like no FPS you've ever played before, and definitely not one that came out in 2007 and starred a man with an enormous moustache!

Marvel at the time-travelling French resistance member who inexplicably gives you an STG-44 during a flashback to 1940, two years before that weapon's design was finished, and three years before the first one was built!

Chuckle warmly as the game provides you with a demolition objective, which is coincidentally the only destructible object in its "Engaging, destructible environment"! Clap appreciatively as you find the explosives you need literally right next to the objective - again! Wonder aloud why you can't place those charges on any of the other nearby things, even though you've done so before, then realise it's because the devs didn't think far enough ahead to provide an alternate route in their 'open-ended levels' in case you used up all your explosives!

Sigh indulgently as you breach through yet another door and go into slow motion to shoot all the nazis inside, not forgetting the guy who gets knocked onto his rear by the exploding door basically every single time.

Whoop with joy as you destroy the Nazi war machine's vaunted Panzers by shooting their frontal armour once, with a single shot antitank weapon! Gleefully call that weapon a Panzerschreck, even though it is clearly a Panzerfaust!

Get really mad because this game's devs clearly put no effort into their research and have no idea what actually happened in World War 2!

Post sarcastic reviews about it instead of doing something productive with your life!

Seems it had potential to be a decent World War 2 shooter but much like my trust the game is broken- and much like my lovelife, multiplayer is empty which leaves me no other option but to play with myself.

In short:

Day 1 playing: Really nice graphics, combat fairly fun, story seems okay should be fine

Day 2: things going wel... crash, close game, crash, computer frozen, restart.

Day 3: crash, crash, crash, try fix, crash, try fix crash, try fix crash, got it working again don't feel like playing

Day 4: getting though the story again glitch can't progress, reatrt checkpoint, nope, restart chapter, nope, restart chapter again, nope, restart again, nope. Processed to write sarcasticly angry feedback.

Overall Enemy Front does not live up to its hype, and falls short when compared to other modern shooters. It is great that CI Games chose to centre their story around the Warsaw Uprising, a conflict that has previously been untouched by games and film, but the story fails to engage the player, and the characters are not developed well. The terrible enemy AI further damages the single player campaign, making many of the missions more tedious then fun to complete. All this coupled with dated graphics, and a multiplayer system that doesn't bring much to the table, and lacks dedicated servers, means that the high price tag Enemy Front demands is not worth it. I recommend buying this game when it's on sale, as a player should not expect to get more than eight to ten hours of game play out of it. Even when taking into consideration the decent gun play, sometimes beautiful environments and great loading screens, I can only score Enemy Front as 4 out of 10.

GAMEPLAY
The structure of the campaign missions is good on the whole. Players are regularlygiven the choice as to what order they complete certain missions and once in the mission are free to approach the objectives how they wish. Enemy Front has a decent stealth mechanic which offers a sneaky route to victory through backstabing and hiding bodies, but this is let down by the lack of a defined cover system. Rather than have the player press a button that would draw them into cover they instead just move behind the various objects in the levels. This run behind something and hope for the best cover system often results in the player being discovered by the enemy and having to shoot their way out. By the second mission in I was so frustrated by the lack of cover system that I stopped trying to stealth kill characters and instead went in guns a blazin'.

Combat in Enemy Front is a mixed bag, with a good variety of detailed weapons that are consistent with the World War II timeframe,but some of the worst AI I have seen in a long time. All of the guns on offer look great, and react as expeted, with differing accuracy, damage and recoil depending on the gun. The game offers a good sniping system with the player able to scope their target, hold their breath causing the rifle to steady and time to slow, before firing off an amazing shot killing their opponent. The sniper rifle is an extremely powerful option, which motivated me to use it in most situations, but by the end of the game I was so damn sick and tired of seeing the slow motion bullet vision of my shots.

Enemy Front AI is terrible, and enemies often struggle to hide behind cover, and are all too prepared to come running head strong through doorways where a pile of dead bodies is already present. I found the most effective way to win missions was to snipe one or two guards then wait around a corner or through a doorway for the rest of the guards to come running through in single file. During other missions I would find guards looking in the wrong direction during fire fights or staying behind cover without firing until I moseyed on passed their defences and killed them point blank. The AI of your companions is also atrocious, with them being unable to kill enemies who are standing in the open, and with them often pushing you out from behind cover as they try to follow their own scripted path. All of these AI issues are further compounded by game play and graphical glitches. These glitches didn't happen too often but I find it extremely annoying when a game crashes during loading due to poor programming.

MULTIPLAYER
Enemy Front offers a couple of standard online multiplayer match options with one new match type for players to try their hand at. Players can choose between deathmatch, radio transmission and team deathmatch. Deathmatch and team deathmatch are the standard game types for FPS multiplayer, but radio transmission offers a slight tweak to the map point capturing game type. Radio transmission matches see two opposing teams of up to 6 players fight it out to control varying map points in an effort to bounce a radio transmission through a level. I struggled to find many people online and due to a lack of dedicated servers suffered from massive pings unless I made my own server. This issue of high pings along with a lack of community support made the Enemy Front multiplayer a tedious endeavour.

VISUALS
As a whole the game looks dated with many of the enemy models being repeated, textures looking flat, and draw distances fluctuating, with objects sometimes appearing out of thin air. This game would have been far more competitive visually at the start of the last console generation, but seems out of place in today's market. Having said this it is refreshing to be able to run a new game at full tilt graphically on my old rig and even with these graphical short comings some of the European environments did look beautiful. Also Enemy Front does have some of the best looking loading screens I have seen in a long while.

Remember the first time you parachuted into occupied (virtual) Normandy, France in the dead of night? Took out those German patrols stealthy-like? Created a distraction so your comrades-in-arms could take the beachhead and secure a landing site? Or remember being packed in an LCU (VIRTUAL), sea water and vomit sloshing beneath you; the Atlantic tossing you about like a plaything before your ship slammed into the beach? The ramp lowered, bullets chewed your men up around you; imposing, gray, gloomy skies contrasted that red, roiling surf? I sure as ♥♥♥♥ do. The developers of “Enemy Front” also remember. They remember and they want you to TOO.

It's been years since we've gotten a great WWII shooter. DAMN OUR HUBRIS. “Developers, we are SICK of killing Nazis. Come on, let's see something new,” we cried. “Okay, how about Nazi zombies?” they replied. And we were content for a time. But we wanted more. So they decided to drown the market in Tom Clancy Russian/Arab/Chinese right-wing wet dream masturbatory aid for the last SEVEN years. It's gotten more boring than WWII ever was. Because history is tangible. It happened. It happened to our grandparents. We can read books and watch documentaries and visit sites. It's real. It's powerful. Pretend future conflicts just aren't the same. They aren't bad, no! Just different. They don't have the same staying power. Remember my first paragraph? Bet you all remembered each of those moments vividly as I described them. Okay, now reflect on some of the latest modern shooter moments. OH ♥♥♥♥, REMEMBER THAT TIME YOU GOT NUKED? Yep. That was pretty heavy. WHAT ABOUT THE GHILLIE SUIT CHERNOBYL LEVEL?!? Oh yeah, that was excellent! Got anything else? No? Okay.

So I hope I've made my position in this debate clear. Now this WWII shooter might not be the savior we're looking for, but it's a fine first effort. The story is interesting, but Citizen Kane this is not. The characters are interesting but one note, underdeveloped, and underutilized. But this is to be expected from the genre. This isn't why we play WWII shooters though, is it? No. We play them to kick Nazi butt. So what little suffers from the weaker story elements the gameplay salvages.

You can approach a level in one of two ways: either come in Captain America style, rocking Nazi faces with your raw and unrelenting patriotism, or you can hit them Sam Fisher stealth style. This duality is very rewarding. The gunplay is great. I can feel the jolts up my arm; I feel the impact of each bullet, whether it's striking flesh or cover. I feel totally immersed. I'm a grimy, grizzled, Nazi-blood-hungry warrior – I'm not playing a video game in my underwear, hungry for day old pizza. The AI is serviceable. I'm playing on expert difficulty. They tend to rush in, unfortunately. Sometimes they display tactics, but on at least a few occasions I've taken a shot in an open area and fallen back, watching them funnel one by one into my death corridor. But otherwise they're competent – just don't expect “Brothers in Arms” tactics. The graphics are excellent, especially considering this is also a PS3 and Xbox 360 release. The ruined cities feel alive, buzzing and burning. The countryside is verdent and beautiful, still scarred by the brutality of war. And the sounds, last but not least, the sounds. Bullets whiz and ping, Germans shriek and shout orders, bombardments are heavy. The score is a little repetitive but it certainly is soaring and epic, fitting for the setting. If the gameplay makes this immersive, then the sound design is the icing on the cake.

A few gripes worth mentioning. I'm a resistance fighter. Thank God the Germans just left open ammo crates lying around everywhere otherwise, I don't know, I might have had to drop my weapon, change things up! And I'm tired of every European out of WWII speaking near perfect English. I wouldn't have minded subtitles; French speaking French, Polish speaking Polish. Finally, the game touts open worldness as a feature and pressures you to explore. I wish there were some collectables... propoganda leaflets and art, love notes and correspondence. History. An unfortunate missed opportunity.

So for my fellow history buffs and historical war enthusiasts AND EVEN A FEW OF YOU MODERN FANATICS, I think you'll have a good time with this game. It has serious nostalgia potential. You will likely smile and reflect on your time with this game when you're finally finished playing. For thirty bucks this is well worth your time. This is almost AAA quality. You owe it to yourself to give it a try.

Now go liberate (VIRTUAL) Europe.

I really don't get the bad reviews for this game. The game is OK.

The story is the worst part of this game since it's not exactly what you would expect. It's decent but somehow cold and distant and it really doesn't make you feel you are part of the resistance.

The gameplay is good, yet nothing special. There are elements found in the older Call of Duty games as well as in Sniper Elite V2. However, I was actually expecting something different since you are a journalist behind enemy lines but this is not the case.

The sound effects and the soundtrack are good, and the graphics are quite OK.

The game runs smoothly on older PCs (I played it on High on an 8 years old PC with Windows 10). The only thing that really annoyed me was the flare effect and the impossibility to deactivate. Unfortunately this can cause problems and framedrops on older and low-end PCs, especially when playing levels that require intensive video processing.

In the end, I really enjoyed Enemy Front. It's not an impressive FPS game but compared to other WWII FPS games I can't actually call it "average" or "mediocre".
7.5 / 10 potatoes from me.

I've never played a more glitched game than this one... This game is simply not finished. The game is made in such a way that player is supposed to use stealth to pass missions or at least that's what the developers tried to do. The AI suck. When I first launched the game it kept crashing so I had to look for a fix for that. The main character of course has to be American - so predictable. We see "Nobel and Brave" French people fighting - too bad the game developers didn't show how 'Good' was the French Army especially after giving up. Warsaw uprising is on the other hand a joke - doesn't at all show how the Poles suffered while it. Around 200 000 civilians were killed... The most annoying things are:
1. Sometimes enemies can see you through the walls.
2. You can shoot enemy in head and they don't die.
3. There were them few random times when I got hit once and instantly died.
4. Weapons don't save... On each level/new map they change which is really ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ off and doesn't make sense.
5. Covering up some really important history facts.
Enemy front was trying to be another sniper Elite and it failed at it badly. The only good thing about this game is the story line which still could be improved because the basic plot doesn't really all stick.

This game is actually pretty good and highly underrated. It is very reminiscent of the earlier Call of Duty games set in World War Two, before they started the endless iterations of a modern crapshoot. Those who recal the old skool beauties should give this a try out of respect.

It isn't a perfect title, but what game is these days with botched releases and micro-transactions? This game au contraire runs fairly fine, at least for me. The stealth mechanic is a bit odd to wrap your head around, but it does work if you figure it out. It is also completely optional! There might be some odd clipping or some stiff animations here and there, but nothing game breaking. The story and the acting isn't going to get an oscar either, but since when is that a deal breaker in these type of games?

What you get is a very beautiful, buttery smooth running game with interesting guns, good combat mechanics. The screenshots really do it justice, but they might not reveal you get a varied journey through all of Europe with alternating scenery and some different gameplay accents every place.

The price though is too high right now, but that's Steams money grabbing mentality, not the developers fault. If you can get it on sale or somewhere else buy it then or there.

For eveybody who has nostalgia for killing nazi's and WWII: pick this up, you won't regret it!


P.S. Multiplayer is dead, don't buy it for that unless you have lot's of friends!
