In Enemy Front you play the role of an American journalist who gets caught up in various resistance movements across Europe, fighting against the Nazi's. The game is strongly story driven with an ongoing plot supposedly revealing different aspects of the war. Unfortunately though the voice acting and graphics are so bad its hard to take the cut scenes seriously. The fact that the main character is an American leads to everyone speaking English when you are supposed to understand what they are saying, then dropping back into their native tongue when you are not.
The controls are typical of a first person shooter, however it insists on using L2 and R2 to aim and fire rather than the top buttons. Personally I find this awkward and annoying, especially as there seems to be no way to change it. There are the usual range of WWII weapons to pick up and use throughout the game but none of them feel well modelled. It's easy to point and shoot with little or no consideration of recoil, firing position, movement or other effects on accuracy. You can take several hits before you die, but so can the enemy. This wouldn't be so annoying if they actually reacted to being hit but you might as well be firing paintballs at them until the last shot eventually brings them down.
The graphics are fairly terrible with a mix of unrealistic urban and rural scenes to explore. You are supposed to be able to have some choice of where you go and what you do but you will soon find it doesn't actually matter. There is nothing very interesting to look at and the best the environment can offer to interact with is the odd gramaphone you can turn on and off. Explosions leave translucent flames behind that then fade into nothing, with no rubble or debris remaining to show what was blown up. Firing through windows or across other surfaces confuses the game as it struggles to recognise the line of sight. Bodies sometimes dissapear after being shot and leave no ammunition on them anyway (its all in handy storage boxes). It's all very amateurish. In fact the best graphics seem to be of the German soldiers who up close show lots of detail. However at range its often hard to pick them out at all among a cluttered, ill defined environment.
The worst aspect of the German soldiers though is their AI. Its laughable how the dreaded Wehrmacht, who most historians regard as the best trained troops in WWII are represented by a bunch of goons who run idiotically towards you down corridors and across open spaces. They are extremely slow to react, often standing still without firing even when you have just killed a dozen of their comrades. To make things even more unbalanced you even have a radar which allows you to track where the enemy soldiers are at all times. As a result you kill hundreds of Germans single handed without even breaking a sweat. Its not that you can't get killed if you are charge madly ahead its just that you probably will not care.
There is a multiplayer mode but with the poor weapon models and dodgey graphics it really doesn't offer much. Most FPS players are very competitive and can easily find a better game to play than this one. There is nothing original in any of the multiplayer modes on offer and the maps are repetitive and unexciting.
For a game like this to be released after so many good PS3 titles with quality graphics, intelligent AI and at least semi realistic gun models is just laughable. Although the WWII setting might be different to most FPS titles the only way to enjoy this game would be to switch off your brain and count how far you can push the stupid AI by charging the enemy guns blazing. This is not a serious attempt at a first person shooter so it doesn't deserve to be taken seriously.
Firstly the graphics- on par with Medal of Honor (ps1 version ) , it's glitchy almost to the point where you can't hit anything with any degree of accuracy , if you approach a table or any inanimate object you can find yourself standing on it for some bizzare reason ,I could go on I really could .
I only paid £12 for it and I wasn't expecting call of duty but this really is a shocker .
Keep your £12 , spend it on a KFC (other fried chicken outlets available ) or a curry .
