"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

This game is alright if you can get past by the bugs(restarting the mission or checkpoint occasionally)yet if you are a patient person you could work with the editor and create a custom scenario, either a skirmish in a Russian town or a full frontal assault on the Beaches of Normandy. This game brings the realism of the Arma engine with the immersion of WWII.
REMEMBER: This game will eventually get buggy at some point so be warned

This game is quite fun and I love the mission editor, d-day and the new mode called blitzkrieg. So much fun. Even though multiplayer is dead, the single-player aspect is good. Just wish that campaign could be a little easier. Overall I give this game a 8.9/10
