Arm yourself for the greatest conflict of modern times!

STORM – Frontline Nation revolutionizes the turn-based strategy genre with unbelievable strategic depth and a cinematic scenario. 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.

STORM - Frontline Nation includes two different game modes: Campaign and Skirmish

  • Campaign - Two strategic campaigns are available; one where you can choose to play as one of Germany, France, Russia, United Kingdom or United States in a story driven experience, and one where you can play as one out of 45 countries.
  • Skirmish - In this game mode a single combat is played. Several parameters for the combat can be customized, including money, light-cycle, weather and technology level.

    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
    • Depending on the situation new challenges arise and units can be supplied individually with weapons and commands
    • Spies and special forces can infiltrate enemy lines in secret-ops carrying out sabotage and decoy activities
    • Research, development and deployment of powerful weapon systems
    • Different game modes such as Campaign or Skirmish
    • Comprehensive multiplayer mode ensures long-lasting gaming enjoyment

STORM: Frontline Nations had quite a few good ideas, but it was one of those projects that were by a new studio, with limited funding and resources, and unfortunately it shows.

Still, at the time of writing, it's been doing the rounds in a lot of Steam's weekly or special sales, and if you get it for the right price there's actually a lot of fun to be had here. Think of it like Total War - how it used to be before Shogun and Empire, but with slightly better graphics - but set in a post-modern timeframe. It's centred on Europe, and there's a narrative led and a sandbox campaign that allows you to take control of one of the major powers like Germany, Russia, UK etc... It’s a game that's mainly geared towards warfare, and while there are some interesting military elements on the strategic level, it's lacking in areas like diplomacy and politics.

The combat engine itself is quite good - a turn-based mode on a hex grid, the terrain depends on what territory you're fighting in, but the generation engine behind it does create some really fun environments to fight in. There are also some really nice customization options for the basic army units, meaning you can fine-tune your tactics to a respectable degree.

It's not the best strategy game you'll ever play, but it's worth looking at if you can get it cheap.

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.

Though the gameplay and mechanics of the this game are interesting and at times even a little fun (although the poorly done tutorials and lack of an kind of guide make it hard to learn at first) the actual programing is what kills this game. STORM is riddled with glitches and bugs ranging from texture glitches to all out game crashing errors. I was unable to ever finish a full game without it either freezing up or crashing.

The thing with Grand Strategy games is that it's very hard not to exploit the flaws once you find them. In this game, it's ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ AI and helicopters. Here is why:
Tanks and artillery cannot attack air units, so they are screwed. Infantry and anti-aircrafters can attack only at one block range, therefore helicopters just have be at a two block distance before they attack, so infantry and anti-aircraft are screwed. The only challenge are enemy helicopters, but since AI is ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and don't know how to retreat, you can just simply gang up on them, so they're screwed.
In the world map using a single helicopter you can one by one wipe out pretty much all small enemy forces and then surround the big ones. The ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ AI then will split them the next turn in order to attack the territories around it, and since you can almost always retreat, the enemy just exposes itself doing no damage, and after that you can just helicopter them again. Rinse and repeat.
Of course, you could raise the difficulty by playing as Luxenbourg with no resources on hard, though in my opinion that's artificial difficulty, but if you're into that sort of psychotic grinding, go nuts, otherwise unless you're completely unfamiliar with Grand Strategy genre, you would find this game a bit too easy.
Also, there some other things to complain. The loading takes more time than to format a hard disk drive. Sometimes I get this weird static noise, that overtakes everything else. Troop animations are kinda clunky and unpolished, for instance, if you move a tank over a hill, it gets swallowed by it. Sometimes after battle the button that makes you go back to the world map freezes, which induces some pleasant ragequits.

In conclusion, even though this game is so appallingly broken, I still find it kinda interesting, and since it's quite cheap, it's worth trying out.
