Frontlines: Fuel of War review

The evolving frontline does exactly what Kaos promised it would, keeping skirmishes tightly focused and ensuring nobody gets stuck in the middle of nowhere without a clue of what to do. The evolving frontline also means bedroom Rambos can’t sneak deep behind enemy lines and capture undefended rear positions, denying us our favorite ultra-cheap Battlefield: Modern Combat tactic. Oh well...

Where most games supplement a solid solo experience with an often slapdash multiplayer game, Frontlines: Fuel of War nails the versus mode and boots the solo campaign forty feet over the goalmouth. Thanks to months and months of play testing, it’s the kind of smart and balanced shooter you’d expect from the men who brought the Desert Combat BF1942 mod, and it’s leagues ahead of the last Battlefield.
