About the Game

Arm yourself for the greatest conflict of modern times!

Scarce resources and a prolonged economic crisis plunges half the world into strife, which can only be resolved by a force of arms. The tension laden mood has a host of nations mobilizing troops and researching advanced warfare technologies. New groups are created, accords are signed and alliances turn to face war. The player has myriad of possibilities available to them in terms of resource and troop management. Enormous freedom of action in the areas of combat, research and diplomacy allows the player to secure world domination for one of the nations. The perfect mix of strategy and turn-based combat makes STORM – Frontline Nation unique in its genre.

    Key features:

    • 45 nations, more than 500 regions and more than 100 cities offer an unbelievable scope for the game
    • Modern warfare on water, land and in the air, in a classic hexfield style

Although there is little in the way of a tutorial or guide for this game, once you pick it up and learn how to play it is very fun and satisfying. Anyone who enjoys grand strategy game and has been waiting for one to come out set in the modern era, this is for you. False flag operaitons with special forces ... awesome.

I would recomend this game to anyone, and I can't believe it is only 4.99!!!

Fantastic!

Similar to Civilization, but with hexagonal tactical combat to resolve disputes instead of petty sprite animations. Set in todays volatile world you choose between any of the major European powers (France, Germany, Great Britain, Russia) plus the USA. Each has a campaign mode where you are issued missions to accomplish in addition to bonus missions which must be accomplished before a set time. With Great Britain for instance the story involves the subjugation of Ireland in addition to commando strikes in Russia Units are generic but you can customize each unit with up to two different upgrades depending on your research. The economy is simple and so is supplying troops. There is a interesting facet in that the game takes heavily into account black operations varying from spying in different cities up to and including setting off a suitcase nuke and spreading infectious diseases within cities. These types of operations are divided between spies and commandos. In addition to doing any of those you can also choose to nplant false evidence pointing to a third party. False Flag operation.

The combat is fairly straight forward with a hexagonal map making up the different battlefields where you will engage enemy units from the strategic map. The only downside is that there are no maps for naval battles meaning naval battles are resovled a la total war circa Medieval 2 and under.

Defenitely recommend considering the price I paid. 1USD

Despite myself preferring real time over turn based, this is a very enjoyable game for me. Only thing I want changed in this game is the only Europe map. I'd prefer if it involves the whole world which would be rather epic.

Normally dont like these games.
But this one is fun. It has a learning curve, and can be hard at times. Still, it is fun. Its combat is a mix of rts and turnbase.
Both player issue orders at the same time, then watch the units follow those orders.
Has aa nice list of missions that you can do. I found my self using SAS to disable a hostile nations airbase so that my fleet can pas by safe. Though, this brings me to my next point.
I dont know if that really did anything, as navy combat is determined by a die roll mechanic. You simply move ships into a certain zone, and the computer decides who wins.
Despite this, I recommend it.
A plus to this game is that every nation has its own units. America has M1s, Russia T72, and so forth. Same with ships and aircraft.
So, Pros
Great deal of missions
Special forces (As in, move to location and pick a option, like civ.)
Unit varity
Units highly customizable (Do you give AT to your infantry, or night vision gaining a advatage at night.)
Cons
Naval combat seems dice determined
Hard at times
Learning curve takes a bit to learn.

Picking up this game for 0.99 i had my doubts but I can honestly say next to 4X titles this is one of the most intense and deep stratergy games I have played. Ranging from a wide view of different regions to move troops around Civs 5 style to in close turn based battles over regions this game is a must try for stratergy enthusiasts.

Limited Recommendation

turnbased "Grand" Strategy in European Theatre, Modern Setting (Tanks,Jets,Nukes, etc.),simple Diplomacy System, Covert Ops and Espionage Units.

Pros:
+++ Tactical turnbased Battles where both opponents go at the same time.Welldone and original Concept.

+ Modern Setting with Unit Customization,

+ Special "Ecm Warfare" Abilities in Battles,depending on Research.

+ Terrain/DayNightcycle/Morale affect Battles.

+ Good Interface.

Cons:

--- Ai is a generally weak/stupid.Could be a Challenge for strategic Beginners.
An Example: I conquered a Region with a Helicopter Unit,Ai counterattacks with an Mobile Artillery,which had *zero* Anti-Air Capability.

- Some minor Bugs.Nothing Gamebreaking.

- Techtrees are to 80% pointless (A B C Weapon Techtrees are kind of unnecessary and bland,Units upgradetree is useful)

- Diplomacy has been done better in other Games.

Fazit:
I played it for a few Hours as i found the Battlesystem und Unit Customization quite enjoyable.
But steamrolling the Ai Nations gets tedious/grindy after a while,
and the Objectives/Events were not interesting enough to keep me playing.
If you like turnbased Strategy and its not too expensive, try it.
