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.
  • Highly replayable 10 hour Single-Player Campaign and 12-player Online Multiplayer, all powered by CRYENGINE technology.

If, for some reason, you are stupid enough to want to play this game apply the following fixes: no disappearing bodies, skip intro videos and FoV + Framerate fixes. For the love of god do not turn on VSync.

Crysis in WW2 sounds like a great idea and, on paper, this game fits that description: same engine, small but semi-open maps, nice graphics and pseudo-realistic shooting (1-2 shot kills etc). In practice everything about the game is a little 'off'. The shooting is some of the blandest, most repetitive and frankly boring I've ever experienced. The expansive maps are almost empty and anyway of little use because the shooting is idiotically easy and the AI very poor. Something about the controls feels strange too though I can't quite put my finger on it. I suspect it's a poor port but it certainly isn't very polished and both movement and aiming don't quite work. It's almost like playing a game with poor hit detection in ♥♥♥♥ing single player. You even get little parts stolen from other shooters but somehow made worse: breeching rooms in slow motion from the modern CoDs, the bullet cam from Sniper Elite and 'defend this barricade against waves of mooks' from every console shooter in the last decade and a ♥♥♥♥ing half.

Also like Crysis you can choose stealth or run and gun but the stealth is incredibly slow, underpowered and clunky. As someone who loves stealth games and always takes the stealthy option when offered I gave up even trying early on and went for the action route.

Another part of the game that feels slightly wrong is the sound. Voices are too loud or too quiet despite the distance they are away from you, for example, and often firing sounds will be out of sync with the gun. This latter issue is most noticeable when you fire single shots on an SMG. Even the graphics, the high point of the game by far, are not without flaws. A fair bit of the lighting is pre-baked (your character doesn't cast a shadow for example) and it's merely good looking without an art direction. It's neither realistic nor stylised with the high contrast and overuse of visual effects hurting the already sub-par shooting and giving you ♥♥♥♥ing eye cancer for no good reason. Both the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ graphics and sound prevent there from being any atmosphere despite the game laying it on pretty heavily at times.

The story is as cookie-cutter as the shooting which is a shame given the somewhat unique parts of WW2 the game visits. Rarely do we see any significant amount of the French resistance and I struggle to think of another game showing Poland at all, resistance or otherwise. Sadly this is spoiled by the cliché characters and ♥♥♥♥ing standard ♥♥♥-pull reason for your character to be an American instead of a ♥♥♥♥ing native. In European Assault you were from the OSS. In the Saboteur a racecar mechanic. In this a ♥♥♥♥ing journalist. Granted the story does touch upon the anger some members of the resistance feel at being just another scoop but we've played as the Americans in WW2 enough already.

Finally little annoyances like an inconsistent checkpoint system, constant bugs, death by physics prop and even the occasional ♥♥♥♥ing invincible enemy finish off this shitpile of a game. Bodies and dropped weapons disappear almost the moment you turn around too though that can be fixed by tweaking config files. I couldn't even finish the game because three hours in my save wouldn't load (thanks checkpoint system!) and frankly I didn't feel like restarting so I didn't reach Norway but I seriously doubt the game improves. I can't remember where I even got this game but it appears to have come from a bundle or ♥♥♥♥♥♥ key reseller. Frankly it wouldn't be worth playing if it was free.

Great potential let down by some of the worst programming I've seen in a WW2 FPS, add to this the bland story and you've got a game which is just not worth wasting your time on.

My own frustrations with the game are numerous in the short time I've had with it. I've had enemies see me through walls, shoot me through walls, glowing enemies from a lighting bug so you can see them a mile off, bugged textures, dodgy physics interactions, basically more bugs than an ant farm. Factor that in with the terrible AI, which have the awareness of an ostrich with its head in the sand at times after you've been spotted and you'll begin to wonder just what the game developers were doing when they were coding them. Literally killed 2 soldiers, with an unsilenced MP40, whilst they looked at a wooden gate and another soldier, a stones throw away, is deaf to their demise. Also I've had enemies running into cliffs and when I took a hostage the another soldier just stared for five minutes at me as I circled him. It's just a mess.

On a positive note, the art design is fairly good with detailed uniforms and highly modelled guns which have very good animations. The levels are also interesting and expansive, however again they are let down by hamfisted design and poor programming.

Finally the sound is a bit muddy and the lip-sync is bad. Another thing is that when a character is speaking you can walk away from them and still hear them like they are right next to you as if the voice is in your head rather than coming from the AI's body.

All in all, a frustrating game. Not been this disappointed since Hour of Victory.

The game is a fun Nazi romp that is incredibly buggy and odd, but the $30 pricetag is way too much. It's worth more like $5 than anything else.

To start, this game is not "bad" as people post, it is a fairly pretty ww2 shooter that does some new things right and some old things wrong

Whats good?
-Decent stealth system you rarely see in a ww2 title, with taking hostages and such
-Gameplay about a rarely seen part of ww2, the partisan movement.
-nice graphics and gunplay feels good

What is bad
-The game's secondary objectives are a massive pain and have to be completed really quickly or youll miss out, this usually means throwing stealth out the window
-The game is shorter than one would want
-The levels are not really open ended, the game is fairly linear despite what it says (Though there are multiple approaches, its not like "come at any angle" its like, "Loud path/quiet path")

Overall, on sale, theres no reason not to get this for a ww2 craving!

It is a fuctioning game...
Terrible story, random war writer that randomly goes from place to place. They never explain how he got there. it feels EXTREMELY forced. Painfully slow.

There is no climax to the story to important scenes to walk away with. Feel like i never played the game and i beat it.

you dont get to pick your weapons and keep them. they will give you something new every time you go to a new map.
Its not open world in the slightest.

Railway shooter, No good story, Terrbile AI, Boreing waste of time.

Pros:

Great graphics
Decent gunplay
Open levels

Cons:

The checkpoint system, aka spend 10 minutes fending off waves of germans only for you to die and have to spend another 10 minutes to get back to the point where you originally were. Only to then die because the dynamite you placed can go through walls and there isnt another checkpoint for 5 minutes still.
Bad hit detection in single player, I ♥♥♥♥ you not.
Misaligned sights on some guns, Sniper rifle you have to aim down not up to compensate.
Horrible checkpoint system
Terrible plot.
Dumb AI
Stealth mechanics are just a joke, even the mission where they want you to stealth just ends up being a loud firefight.

The game started out so good but the longer you play the more you see the games glaring issues. Shame, I liked this game early on.

You get to shoot a load of Nazis, what's not to love?

In all seriouness, this is a really enjoyable game to play and works really great on 21:9. Yeah sure there are small little things you could pick on but there are a lot less than what you would find if it was made by EA or Activision.

If you enjoy WWII games then you will enjoy this.

Bought it on Steam Summer Sale 2016, played for 13 minutes. It is really very mediocre game, very budget game yet maybe one of the most effort-made to date by City Interactive. The graphics maybe good (although in my case, it is ugly because of my old rig), the gameplay is like old Medal of Honor pre-modern era. The sound is also mediocre. I bought this game solely because it was 90% off (the highest discount for this game yet) and want to check whether this game is really that bad or not. If you have good rig and have a love for WWII stuff, it might be a decent title but ONLY purchase this game on sale and not full price.

Why I recommend it, because it is good for a developer nowadays makes a WWII game again after the market being flooded by futuristic theme one.

This was a plesant surprise in the field of world war 2 games on steam currently. The story takes you through war-torn Poland, France, Norway, and Germany. You are an American reporter and help various members of each civilian's resistance against the German army.

The game suffers from a severe lack of difficulty even on the hardest option. Your character can stomach at least 5-7 mp40 bullets and while the health regeneration is slower than most other games, it's too easy to run away from any threats. The enimies's health also don't scale so if you're an experinced FPS player you can quickly down most of the enimies rather quickly.

That is the only serious problem aside from the occasional glitch which a quick checkpoint reset fixes.

The story is heart touching. I have a personal connection with the warsaw uprising and to just be a random guy and they show it very well. While all of the German soilder's are Men, the Polish Home Army is made up of Men and Women in about a 3:1 ratio during the game. That was just a really nice touch to complete the desperation and show what people fought for during those 2 months.

Gameplay wise, there is a well done stealth mechanic. You have a meter on your hud and it'll make a noise and fill up red when you can be seen so you can quickly sprint and slide into cover to avoid being seen. You have a pair of binoculars so you can mark enimies and they'll have an yellow eye for a "passive" mode or red for an "alert". You can see this icon through walls too. You can throw a rock to distract guards and they'll go on alert but won't siginal other soilders to the area.

The sniping mechanic is similar to the Sniper Elite games with the slow motion bullet cam and noise to cover sniper shots in a large area. The bullets seem to go off of the scope a little so it makes tight shots pretty difficult.

Each mission usually has a couple side missions which range from helping resistance members, blowing up tanks and halftracks, to releasing POW's from a prision camp.

Gunplay overall is satisfying even though it isn't innovaitve which it doesn't really need, the story and level design were the bigger focus. The game gives you a couple opprotunities to gun down Nazi's with a mg42 to satisfy your itch after slealthing past a group of them. There are also a decent number of slow-mo breaching sequences which are rather fun.

The level desgin in this game is amazing and really ties the game together. Your objective is in this village and on the opposite of the village is a river, you can sleath around the far outskirts of the town and get closer to your target. Very few times have i felt restrant on where a can and can't go. I may definitaly play through the game again and kill everything just so i can explore the levels because when you sleath through a level, you tend to only see the outside edge of half of it.

Playing through the game on expert and completing most of the side missions and playing with a mix of stealth and firefights. It took me a little under 7 hours to beat the game which is shorter than i would have liked to have experinced a lot more of the game but those hours were a solid 7 hours of good fun and a touching story.

I picked this game up for 90% off during the Steam summer sale of 2016 and it costed me $3 and i felt it was well worth it. Full price I would stear away from it unfortunately. Multiplayer is completely dead so don't even bother with the dlc packs but other wise i fully recommend this game to people.
