"Very flawed game, but if you're patience and familar with the Arma 2 engine, you can experience some great experiences. Multiplayer is hackers/broken."

Digital War Edition

Summer 1944. Europe is at war. The Allies are about to attack...

"D-Day" adds the famous landing on the coast of Normandy by the Allied Forces to the tactical World War II shooter "Iron Front – Liberation 1944". Merciless gun battles for each centimeter of the beaches await brave soldiers on the side of the Allies and the Wehrmacht alike in this extensive expansion. Brutal combat unfolds on the storm-lashed shores of France, as the future of the world is about to be decided at the Atlantic Wall... and you are in the thick of it! Fight with the Allied Forces against the dogged Wehrmacht defenders, or join the battle on the side of Germany and use any means to stop the Allies' advance.

"D-Day" introduces a whole new scenario with new weapons, military equipment and missions in both single-player and multiplayer modes (incl. co-op), as well as the Allies as a new faction. In the expansion, players can take on the roles of American soldiers, pilots and tank crews to fight for the freedom of France. The famous landing craft which carried the US soldiers to the bloody battle of liberation at Omaha Beach are of course also included in D-Day. Air support is provided by the P-47 Thunderbolt, while Sherman tanks support the advance of the ground forces.

Following the successful landing of the Allied Forces, the battles in Normandy continue with new missions featuring authentic re-creations of the military equipment of the age, including the Garand M1 rifle and the Browning automatic rifle. Players can also, for the first time, enter the war on the American side and use the new troops in multiplayer mode as well. However, the German troops are also well-prepared for D-Day: In response to frequent requests from the community, the Tiger I panzer is ready to deploy in the expansion.

Note: To install the D-Day 1944 DLC go to "expansions" and click the DLC 1 and choose "install."

My expireience with iron front was pretty great, i am a ww2 buff and a fan of arma so as you can imagine i was drawn to iron front pretty quickly. so, the game is fun, realist and if you can play arma(stand the minor bugs) you can play this. the graphics look pretty nice on higherst setting and the maps are huge. Also the animaitons are redone(unlike arma2 where the bold magically reloads without moving) and tanks have a more realist crew(front gunner, loader) and you can tow artillery(pak 40 AT gun for example) and infantry can ride tanks. The editor is quite good and the game has a larger focus on areield combat that arma.

Overall it is a great game and not as buggy as everyone thinks

after dive bombing soviet convoy enemy AA took out my left wing, parachuted into Ukrainian village, found dead sniper and took his rifle, hid upstairs in restaurant overlooking the square and waited 2 hours, attempted to assasinate the Soviet commander but missed and was killed by a T-34 high explosive shell that came through the window into my face.

10/10 Would fly Stukas again.

Anyone looking for an accurate layout of Omaha beach will probably be disappointed with the D-Day DLC. Although the map of the St.-Laurent sur-Mer area looks pretty accurate, it fails to translate to the ground (have been there personally). There is also a strange island off the shore and there are mountains visible where it should be only ocean. Also, there is no map of the areas involved in Airborne operations. Other than that, the game is a great WII shooter with the feel of ARMA.
