I know ima get a lot of dislikes but i enjoyed the game a lot. These types of games brings me back to my good ole days. In 2005 i was playing area 51, evil dead regeneration, and Grand Theft Auto : San Andreas. During this time this game was a blast!! But, as time moves on, graphics get updated, and etc.. We become more picky on what games are fun now. Some go for graphics, some go for story, and etc. I enjoyed the game in 2005 and i enjoyed the game in 2015. Found some bugs, but they werent too big to mess me up.

Pro:
Minimal System Specs
Tutorial is useful
cover system
Driveable cars
keys can be remapped

Con:
Dated graphics that fit nicely with the sub-par story line.
Limited graphics options
Default Controls are terrible
minor bugs

Perhaps you have already played CTSF series on gameboy advance. Those games was similar to Metal Slug series but this time CTSF:FFE is a third person shooter. Raptor and Stealth Owl are back and now in 3D world.
And certainly gameplay changed a lot-
  • No more infinite pistol ammo. And unlike other shooter games you cannot pick up weapons and ammo from enemies. Ammo conservation bothers me all the time.
  • Our heroes can jump in 2D world but now in 3D world they cannot jump. That could be good news - you don't need to jump across gaps. But falling damage still exists.
  • Our heroes have more gameplay differences. In 2D world the only difference between the two is their special weapon: Raptor's special weapon was a grenade launcher while Stealth Owl's special weapon was a shotgun. Now Raptor has a energy shield, and Stealth Owl have a optical camoflage and a multi-functional nightvision similar to Sam Fisher.
    But the cloak mode is useless. Enemy sniper will shoot you on sight even a mile away. They don't yell "come out and fight" at the yankee coward. They just know you are there. If enemies spot you before you switch on cloak they can still see you after you cloak. And the N3-S rifle (actually M4) sight reticle just disappear after cloaking.
    And the energy shield seems cannot block explosions. If ever an enemy fires a rocket at you you will die instantly unless you roll twice to one direction. The explosion radius is so large, and if you get caught in the radius you will just die. You don't receive less damage enough for you to survive.
  • Only Stealth Owl can perform HALO jump. This time you don't need to control the height and position to open the chute. The free fall phase become an independent level and enemies will try to attack you - they will drop some soldiers falling with you and launch SAMs locking on you. So what's the point of the air drop? With an F-117 stealth bomber? Covert insertion with enemy already know your presence?
  • Bullets travel far more faster.
  • Cover system.
And I have to admit the vehicle control is terrible. It's similar to Borderlands, vehicle will try to turn and move to the direction your mouse pointing at. But most parts of the map is narrow. There is a level controling a hovercraft in a flooded city. I always got stuck.
I don't think this game is bad but I wouldn't give it a positive review either.

Make no mistake, this game is not good.

It is, however, a throwback to a simpler time. Back when we didn't google for reviews and gameplay footage before we bought a game. Or we didn't buy games ourselves at all.
My mom got this game for me when I was 12. She didn't know anything about video games, but knew that I liked the ones with soldiers in them. I didn't have a point of reference for what made a good game or a bad game, having never really played any good ones at the time. So she brought this home, and I played it. And it was awesome. Sure, the graphics were crap and the voiceacting was laughable and all that, but right then, as I played it, it was the best game ever.

So I saw it on steam the other day. And I bought it, and played it again. The options-menu contains nothing of use, only resolutions that don't actually exist, no texture settings, and a very confusing key-binding section. The game is poorly optimized, and barely runs on a modern PC. The framerate is too high, which screws up the cutscenes and makes voice-clips play atop one another. The game has a cover system, but it's entirely useless since enemies die in one or two hits, and their AI is simplistic, at best. The controls are floaty and fast, and the gunplay is limp. And it's the best. It's an absolutely awesome throwback to a time where I was a kid, and games didn't have to be any good to be fun.

I don't know if you'll enjoy this one if you don't have any nostalgia for it, but if you're looking to waste a few hours with some fun, dumb, poorly made run'n'gun action, I can think of nothing better to play. It's pretty awful, and I love it for that.

Ok, I can say this is a game that aged a bit graphics wise BUT that doesnt impact the gameplay, the game is fast paced and may require trial and error.

Just a tip though, when the launcher appears change the grenade switching controls, it will be bound to page up and page down.
