Extreme Gamer writes: "At a quick glance you might mistake the cover of Frontlines: Fuel of War for a Tom Clancy Ghost Recon game. The look of the modern soldier has been molded into a quick moving modern warrior armed with technology and firepower. Like Ghost Recon, Frontlines also adapts the modern era solider into a battle won by not only the biggest guns, but also visual and robotic aids. The action is total first-person, fast paced and fun. In a way Frontlines feels like a mix between Call of Duty, Ghost Recon, and EA's Battlefield. Frontlines might not have the best elements out of all these games, but what it does have is creditable gameplay and a highly addictive fun factor.
The focus in Frontlines is on the multiplayer front, however a single player campaign is added and despite what you might have heard, I found the quick snippets of story interesting with well acted performances from the digital actors. The plot isn't shoved down your throat and only comes up briefly before mission chapters. The focus of the story is the battle for natural resources, mainly oil. In Frontlines, it speaks of a future where natural resources are on the brink of depletion around the globe. This steamrolls in to our way of life and economies falling into chaos as the world superpowers struggle to gain control."
