Frontlines: Fuel, frustration and fun

Mixed feelings about Frontlines: Fuel of War, which recently scored a "5" from IGN.

From the article: "THQ and Kaos jumped through a lot of extra hoops with Microsoft to allow 32-player DEDICATED servers (supposedly this will be increased soon to 50-players) on Xbox Live. For me, and everyone I know, these servers are nearly useless. If you're lucky enough to actually get in to one of these matches, it's only for about 6 seconds, and then you load out to the all-too-familiar "This match is no longer available" screen. Something is broken here.

None of the core elements of the game had any major issues, and despite the frustration, this game is HIGHLY addictive. "One more game" syndrome set in on Friday night and I played until almost 5:30am. I've never even done that kind of stand in Call of Duty 4, one of my favorite games ever. I think once THQ and Kaos figure out the bugs and re-evaluate their comms choices, this is going to be a sure go-to-game for anyone with the desire to live out their fantasies of mass-destruction."

I 100% agree with the author. I HEART this game too.

Balance3344d ago

i have been debating getting this game. the online demo was fun but not enough to make me buy the game.

If you go into it expecting to be wowed at every minute reviewable detail, you'll be disappointed. If you go into it looking to have a BLAST... IMO you'll love it.

Just my opinion though.

Excalibur3344d ago

I'd give it a solid 9-10

JSA-Gamer3344d ago

When I amplaying a game I have never thought... THIS IS A 10.

I think one of the following...

THIS IS REALLY FUN
THIS IS FUN
THIS IS OKAY
THIS KINDA SUCKS
THIS BLOWS.... Next!

I wish games were rated on that scale to be honest. Way more useful to me.

Apparently, no one knows how to play 50-player games on xbox-live. Go to quick match and search through the lists with the left or right triggers to find the 50-player matches.

"You might be wondering how a car that small carries any grenades at all, much less enough to fight for what seems like an eternity. Hey, it’s the future…"

Well the future must already be here it is called metal storm. Virtually all the vehicles and UGV's (un-manned ground vehicles)in frontlines is real including both attack helicopters though the commanche stealth helicopter never entered production. The grenade launching ugv's use caseless electronically fired ammunition that is stacked in the barrels. If one shot fails to fire the one behind it will fire it out anyways.

Dang....straight out of R&D and into the game...both those are spitting images of two of the pieces you can use in game.

+bubbles to you.

JSA-Gamer3343d ago

are amazing. WOW that was cool.

goldenzealot3343d ago

you know what the funny thing is? this game isnt on the ps3. all ps3 fanboys are going on about MGS4 yet there craptacualr console cant even run unreal engine 3 properly. hahaha they shoulda bought a 360 like normal people instead of wasting there money on a paperweight.

Mr Marbles3343d ago

yet another great game on the 360, while PS3 offers nothing but empty hype. The only thing the PS3 has proved so far is what it CANNOT do.

And before all you iodiots come running to type Uncharted, don't bother, uncharted cost 10 billion dollars and probably took 3000 developers, with those kind of man hours and money, 360 could far better.

"yet another great game on the 360, while PS3 offers nothing but empty hype. The only thing the PS3 has proved so far is what it CANNOT do."

_____ 1) You don't own a PS3 or any of its games, so you can't experience its fully delivered quality, and so you can't comment on its 'empty hype.' 2) The PS3 has proven a lot, and I'm sure you already know that due to its release of high quality games last year such as Uncharted, Warhawk, Heavenly Sword, Folklore, and other sleeper hits.

"And before all you iodiots come running to type Uncharted, don't bother, uncharted cost 10 billion dollars and probably took 3000 developers, with those kind of man hours and money, 360 could far better."

_____ Thats obviously an exaggeration. Insomniac is a small studio, and they're preparing to release their 3rd game on the PS3 around the PS3's second birthday. And I can only expect the same from developers who spend time to learn about the intricacy and complexity of the Cell Broadband Engine.

Go RROD, XBOT.

_____ Unreal Tournament III runs better than the slightly-less-than-HD Halo 3, which proves beyond a doubt that the PS3 can handle the Unreal engine just fine. The only reason Gears isn't on it is because Microsoft has exclusive rights to it. Seeing as your calling the PS3 a paper weight (no doubt, you don't even own one to justify that comment), all your saying is just damage control. Speaking about paper weights...
