Game Revolution: Frontlines: Fuel of War Review

Game Revolution writes: Gas prices certainly are high these days, aren't they? It's enough to make you mad. Fightin' mad. So mad you might consider driving a hybrid like a hippie fruitcake. So mad you'll chance at taking public transportation. So mad you'll go invade a country and liberate yourself a friggin' full tank of gas already.

Nope, we are not describing life in today's world of four dollars a gallon - I just crapped my pants. This is the premise for the third world war depicted in Frontlines: Fuel of War. In this apocalyptic vision, oil demand has exceeded supply, leading to famine, pestilence, death, and - you got it - war.

The game's appeal rests heavily on its multiplayer Battlefield-style online matches, as Frontlines offers a single-player campaign only six hours in length. It is no Call of Duty 4 or Halo 3, but the various missions in the campaign, in which you play as a generic hero-soldier fighting to secure oil fields, are a good introduction to the Motor Trend-worthy collection of vehicles and gadgetry. Unlike similar titles, such as Warhawk or Shadowrun, Frontlines can't be faulted for not giving us something to play when the servers are down.
