Before I say anything on this game I should forewarn those about to purchase that this is one heck of a buggy release. I can't play more then about 20 mins without my graphics card locking up amongst other problems so I would wait for a week or so before buying because this game should (it damn well needs it) be getting patched soon. Furthermore there are times when the frame rate drops absurdly, this has always been a problem with games by this company, ARMA suffered badly with frame rates and this game is no exception. You'd have thought by now the company would have ironed these problems out, but it seems not.

The game itself is a pretty good attempt at a world WWII sim. Graphically it's not groundbreaking but it's good enough and this is more then compensated for by an amazing physics engine. The ballistics are all pretty accurate and faithful to reality, tanks blow up nicely and bodies fly through the air appropriately from explosions.

In terms of the gameplay the makings are all there for a great idea. You can approach missions how you like and the game will reward you for using caution and tactics such as flanking. So the mechanics in this sense are fine, what is not so clear is the actual direction of the missions. I found on more then 1 occasion that I had to guess (often using a trial and error approach, yawn) where I should be going and what I should be doing. I'm all for games giving the user creative freedom in approaching problems, but that doesn't mean things should be left opaque leaving me spending 10-15 mins pointlessly running around working out what I need to do.

Where this game does score higher is in atmosphere.

This is perhaps the most infuriating game I have ever played and I would have binned it after the first hour if it was not for, well what? I'm not sure. Let me explain.

The start of the game is a tutorial where you are shown how to select, fire and reload guns, hand grenades and panzerschrecks. This is all well and good except it takes forever to get from one shooting range to another because of the banal and unnecessary chatter of the officer in charge. Still no matter, sticking with it you eventually get to fire at some baddies - in this case communists but if you choose the Soviet campaign you can shoot Nazis instead.

The campaign choice is interesting as there are 2 campaigns, Russian and German which you can play in German (with English sub-titles) or English. Here is the first obstacle. Because it takes sooooo long to get anything done in the tutorial, and the game come to that, there is a disincentive to go back and choose a different campaign, or even to a previous save point. If you choose German but don't speak it then it is very easy to miss an instruction and then be totally perplexed as to what to do as the subtitles vanish - like an old oak table. At one point I was on the shooting range and there were no targets left to shoot. The Officer was in his observation hide and there was no indication that a check point had been reached. And that was it - nothing happened - so I shot the officer. Big mistake. The next scene was my soldier being executed (which took forever too) and it was back to the start of the tutorial! That'll teach me.

As there is no real help in game as to what to do next, except for the occasional cryptic message in the map tasks screen, doing stuff is often a case of trial and error.

Firstly, the reviews here are coming up to a year old, and were written prior to major patch releases which fix all of the problems listed by the various poor reviews.

So, having downloaded the 1.3 Cumulative patch, and proceeded to upgrade to 1.4 and lastly 1.5, the game is fully functional - and a fantastic experience.

I suppose the most important thing to say about this game is that no one should buy it if they want a generic "Call Of Duty" shooter experience. This is far more than a simple run and gun. You need to use thought, skill and tactics to defeat the opposing side and claim victory.
The ballistics are fantastic, the graphics are decent, and the campaign is realistic and engaging.

I re-iterate as it is an essential point: Not for CoD fans! If, however you are looking for a realistic, historical tactical and immensely enjoyable experience, this is the game for you. A top notch effort that does justice to the ARMA engine. I urge you to understand that the bad reviews and harps of "Bugs, oh game-breaking bugs!" are no longer relevant.

Buy this game!

The demo movie looked great and I really wanted to play a good WW2 game so I pre-ordered it.

I've never played any of the ARMA games that Iron Front is based on so the interface and feel of the game is all new to me and so far...it's a mess.
The graphic quality (even on the VERY HIGH setting) is functional rather than exceptional but it works for me. There is lots of detail and the scenery feels authentic.

Then there's the bad news....and boy...is there a lot of that!
There's loads of potential here but there are so many issues with the bugs, interface, the scripting and the complete lack of instructions that the whole game is just a mass of frustration.
Most games have some bugs on launch but this one goes way beyond that. It should never have been released in this state.

I've "played" this game for 16 hours but most of that time has just been spent repeating my actions/missions in an attempt to get the thing to work.

Here's some examples . . . .

Example 1: Training mission 1. Learn to shoot your rifle.
I run up to to my commander in the field as instructed. Nothing happens.
I run around aimlessly for 20 minutes wondering what I have missed.
I pause the game and look on Google for any advice...but nothing as the game was only just released.
Reload mission and this time when I run up to my commander he actually responds to me. My first bug...but there are several more to come.

Example 2: Clear the russians from the little village.
At last- some action...So I steathily approach the village only to see my comrade-in-arms take a bullet.
My commander orders me to provide medical assistance so I walk up the wounded soldier hoping to be given some info on how to heal him...Nothing.
