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.

A lot better game than the Metacritic rating suggests.

First of all the game uses Cryengine so the graphics are really crispy and has nice looking effects like godrays. The maps/levels are decent designed and great to look at and walk around in. The cutscenes are really low resolution and is a big contrast to the ingame graphics. There are also a decent amount of graphic options to play with, but it's not needed as the performance is really good, you can max everything out easily.

The gameplay reminds me a lot of Wolwenstein 2009. For the most part it plays as an oldschool FPS, but they also have added some more modern mechanics such as a bullet cam (sniping shots) and tagging enemies with your binocular (ala Sniper Elite). The AI is a bit of a mixed experience. Sometimes they are oldschool bad ♥♥♥ and unforgiving and some moments they are a bit to weak and oblivious to your presence. Overall they tend to be predictable in combat and you find yourself often behind a door opening just waiting for a horde of enemies walking through. You can consider that to be bad, but oldschool AI behave the same... and I like that.

The story is forgetable and I personally skipped half of the cutscenes so far. You are a resistance fighter and you are being handed out objectives throughout the game, thats jig of the story. With FPS games like this the story is not the reason to buy and play the game, it is about the gameplay.

The only thing that kind of annoys me in the game is regenerating health. It has nice oldschool gameplay and mechanics, but they had just had to add cheesy regenerating health. As the maps are nice enough to explore I rather would have seen some hidden healthpacks/medkits or something.

There is also online mode, but I haven't checked that out (might be dead or not).


Edit: after 8 hours in the campaign the game consistantly kept crashing (hard crash) and the game became completely unplayable. Editing the settings .cfg file and change DX to DX9 fixed it so far.

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.

In a sweeping epic of World War 2, Enemy Front tells the daring story of Not-Frank West who travels back in time to join the Warsaw Resistance against the Nazi threat to get those sick nasty scoops for his paper. What he sees shocks even him: Half-baked stealth mechanics, extremely weird enemy hitboxes, tanks that can't do jack ♥♥♥♥ if you run right up to them and bob-n-weave their shots, and gameplay that makes Call of Duty look like FEAR. Will he be able to survive the massive onslaught of Nazi's with half their brains missing and all sense of self-preservation gone, a dead/pointless multiplayer mode, and secondary objectives that really don't give any special rewards for doing, in order to get the hot foreign chick and stop the Nazi invasion once and for all? Or will he reach a ending that feels farted out and be buried by this games mediocrity?

But seriously, nice looking game, great to be back in WW2 in a time where every FPS has to be IN THE FUTUR, but has some really goofy and weird flaws that keep it from being actually good. Also feels like they wanted to go for a WW2 version of Far Cry 3, but fell flat on their face. Overall a decent game despite me railing on it, but still falls short. I'd recommend buying it when it's on sale for like 10 bucks or below.
