I never understood why this game is so underated. In fact it could be underated BECAUSE its so good for some reason ! The story has undertones critical of the Iraq War. Now Bush, Laney and 500 CIA agents cannot travel to Europe because there are arrest warrants out for them (go check if you don't believe me) that throws the games story into a very interesting light in retrospect, and I think it was meant as a kind of protest vote ... "what's realy going on guys" ? So that set the game play into an interesting context for me. I can only examine the single player campaign here as I have not tried the multiplayer part. I found everything about the single player combat here to be outstanding. The gun play and FPS combat is very fluid. The key innovation at the heart of the game's system is the remote drones. I've never seen any other game get this right with a seamless transition from the player soldier holding a control screen for the drone to looking out of the drone's camera and back again. So you can blast away with a drone, then leave it in some tactical location, switch back to the human first person view and do some fighting there, and then switch back to the drone again. The level design is still very good to this day and shows that less really is more. Many games these days try and cram too much into the scene and the focus is lost. This should be a very simple "zen of 3D engine design" but the point so often gets lost. Look at the levels in Frontlines. You eye is drawn to the most important elements because it's not distracted so the sense of place is enhanced as well as immersion. Cool ! My favourite level. The one when you can fly a helicopter as you approach a huge fortress. One last thing. If the "distortion" effect does not enable in the graphics settings, first apply very low settings, return to main menu, apply very high settings, return to main menu. Now distortion should be on and you can increase the other settings that were not set to full by "very high".

Man, I remember so many late nights playing this game. Was a shot load of fun, esp when I would fly drones over a sniper and detonate right behind them. So sad this entire company collapsed.

I recently managed to locate the dedicated server files and was thinking about putting up a server and hopefully finding maybe 10 or more people who would want a weekly game night for FFOW. I dont even see any dedicated servers available for rent anymore so I doubt anyone plays much.

Any interest? Hit me up on steam.

BEWARE if you are buying this game: I remember single player was fun but there is NO multiplayer. You can start a LAN game but there are NO BOTS to play against. So you better have friends pleb.

Look, i've posted good reviews, i've posted bat ones, but this may be the only review that i've had trouble deciding on weather it's good or bad. FFOW is a game that i bought for $5 because it was on sale. Although made in '08, FFOW presents us with aspects ahead of it's time. I mean, i own Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, and i instantly saw aspects of that here. But honestly, the only part that makes me indecisive here, is the fact that they seem to have canceled the multi-player. This may just be my own computer, but it looks like it's over (As is the case with some other older FPS games, some of which would have had merit had the designers bothered to keep the servers up) It is a nicly made game with good concepts, but all-in-all, 7/10.

Online multiplayer is dead, and was the only reason to play this game to begin with. Even if it was still active, I'm not sure I would recommend it.

This was basically an extra that came with the THQ pack I got when they were in business. By now you should be aware that this is basically a single player game only. I got around 9 hours worth on hardcore level. Only had one crash on my XP computer. Had to DL a driver patch to make the game work. If they had a neutral button I would vote for that. The game gives you generous amount of ammo and the ability to instantly heal yourself if you disengage from a firefight. You can't really count on your AI buddies to save you. More than once the enemy would stroll up to around shotgun range and shoot at me ignoring my friendly AI, while my AI buddies kinda danced around missing or ignoring the enemy. So basically your AI buddies help you locate the enemy by shooting in their direction. You also use some type of radar that lights of the enemy in a red circle when you see them. Not sure why you would have this on on hardcore mode. This game is really easy especially when you have a tank. Just go forward, shoot, go back and repeat. Hide to get repaired if necessary. You also get plently of lives to finish a mission. I'm not sure if you have the ability to change your loadout before a mission starts, but you do have that ability when you die once. All in all not a bad game,but better games are out there. Also there seems to be 3 or 4 active nordic employees -_-

Un gioco vecchiotto ma sempre giocabile,grafica un po datata ma gradevole.Prima di prenderlo considerate il fatto che i server sono tutti down e potete giocarci solo single player.Buon game a tutti.

Uno degli fps più belli a cui abbia giocato. La trama mi piace tantissimo ed il gameplay non è affatto male. L'approccio alla battaglia lo decidete voi ed avrete diversi mezzi per farlo, compresi veicoli da battaglia e droni vari. La colonna sonora poi quanto mi piace!

I bought this game long ago, when it first released, to the people that complain and give it bad reviews, all i have to say, is, its your fault you bought it now, because what this game was, is no longer, you should have done your research before hand.

I bought this game when on its release like i said (The play time hours you see are not represenative of what i actually played, since at that time such hour stat system did not exist) and in its glory days, was an amazing game, i had endless hours of fun with this, from sniping (the way sniping is meant to be done in large maps) to close quarter, vehicles, you name it.

This game was ahead of its time, and its true worth was on the multiplayer, and so i cannot recommend you buy this at the current time, since the multiplayer is long gone, there are no servers.

So, a few years back i would have told you to buy it, because the game was absolutely fantastic due to its amazing multiplayer, but now, i suggest you stay away and dont buy the game, because you wont be able to get the old experience from before.

But, still, i will give this a Thumbs up, because i once came to love this game, and the game was a fantastic addition to my collection then, and because although you are best not buying this game anymore, it was a damn good one years back, and that deserves at least some apretiation from my part, so as a thanks, a Thumbs up for this once upon a time very good and ahead of its time Game. Thanks Frontlines, but i guess everything comes to an end.

Note: I will stress this here, so people, can understand and they dont let themselves fall into hole, The game is not playable anymore, there is no multiplayer, all servers have been shutdown, there is no way you will be able to play it online EVER again, do not yourselves get fooled, if you think there is such way, use it at your own risk. But it is from my experience that if something is too good to be true, then its because it is. Dont let yourselves take risks unnecesarily, its not worh it, i have been gaming for years now, so you can take my word for it, or maybe not, its your call, but i talk from experience.

Have owned this game for too many year to count :) Absolutely love it and would recommend it to anyone who loves battefield type games. It's too bad the multiplayer servers are shutdown now since not too many ppl play it anymore. If they could re-open it somehow and get the name on the headlines again that would be legit.

A pretty solid single player experience as a near-future, open-world-ish, Military themed FPS. It's not a full open world, as it's one structured area per level. I think "open level" would be a better description. Think of a battlefield map that has your forces moving from one side of the map to the other (like the front line moving in the trailer). This open level mechanic is refreshing for a single player experience (that isn't battlefield with bots) compared to the modern military shooter campaigns which are very linear. There's still a hint of linearity as each mission is basically about 3 target objectives (at a time) you have to capture/destroy but you can pretty much get to each of them in whatever order you want. Then another 3, and so on, until you've basically hit ever point of interest in the large scale level. It plays out somewhat like Crysis (1) or FarCry (1), but better in my opinion because the combat comes sooner, is more sustained (more ammo, more bad guys, & less time traversing the map), you have allies to fight alongside you, you're given more choice via multiple simultaneous objectives, and the level design is more than just a jungle (it's an urban jungle)

This game lets you use vehicles (tanks) but you can survive w/o having to use them (unlike fights in battlefield). Then there's also using drones (RC cars/helicopters with mounted guns/bombs), which occures quite often-more than I would wish in an FPS game but at least its not the majority (or even the entirety) of any particular mission and It's possible to get the through the mission w/o using them, though can be difficult at times.

Graphics may be slightly dated, but they're unified and solid. Sound is generic but it gets the job done well enough without detracting too much from immersion. Dialog is simple, not much depth. Same with the plot, but this is good as it doesn't try to cram a bunch of narrative/history into your brain when you've come to play a shoot 'em up action game. The controls are tight. You have health regeneration so as long as you have cover, you can almost always stay alive. There are still times where you may die, but the open-world game mechanic makes dying less frustrating as you are not forced to follow the exact same path that just got you killed!!

No aim down sights, just some weapons with scopes as alt fire. You're able to choose your "class" (pre-set loadout) if you die and have to respawn in the campaign.

Overall, great fun playing the single player campaign as an open level shooter. I was disappointed with the last few levels in the cities as you couldn't enter many of the large buildings which greatly restricts your movement and attack options compared to the previous levels in the game.

amazing multiplayer,still perfectly playable via hamachi,tunngle,gameranger etc. due to LAN mode (yes LAN! mindblowing, i know). also online servers hosted by the kiling crew are also still avaiable (connectable via ingame console).
lil sidenote: retail and steam version frontlines cannot play together in lan iirc.

well resurrection of frontlines great multiplayer wont happen anyway because people are idiots as usual.

This is a fun game.

It ain't Battlefield, though it certainly tries very hard. Bad news first: Servers are down, you won't find anyone to play with online. Thankfully, the single player mode has a lot to offer. If you're old enough to remember Battlefield 2 and how they said it'd have a single player campaign, I'm pretty sure that's what the designers of that old frigate had in mind when they thought about it, even though it never came through eventually (thanks for that, Obama!).

Graphics are still decent, weapons are neat, vehicles rock. The little boondoggle drones keep ingame monotony down. The story is surprsingly well written. I really liked how much thought went into all that just-slightly-beyond-tomorrow-tech - the experience is similar to the recent 2020-future Cowadooties, though far less spectacular, of course. Still, the designer's artistic achievement is to be applauded, if Call of Duty Advanced Blabla comes up with pretty much the same ideas five years later.

Naturally, the immersive aspect is rather reduced when compared to a big-budget game like Battlefield. Often you'll find yourself just blasting at simpleton foes or hammering away at a distant installation with and IFV chaingun. Nonetheless, I was playing through this game with a big grin on my face, if only because it actually felt like a good old GAME instead of these new overscripted pseudo-movies. I'd give the single player experience a straight 8/10, though that number drops significantly after the first pass.

Like I said, a real fun game. Definitely recommended when on sale, you won't regret the four hours or so it takes to finish. After that, go for two double cheeseburgers at Mickey D's and feel like you're 15 again and all's well with the world for about an hour.
