Worth a punt, a fun online shooter and cracking price at 4.99 too!

War (huh!). What is it good for? THQ will give you a startlingly honest answer to that question. It's good for keeping your car going. Frontlines: Fuel of War forgoes the trappings of the fight for democracy and other such idealogical trimmings and drops you knee deep in a war for oil raging across the Middle East. The very fate of civilisation hangs in the balance, with the Western Coalition (the US and Europe) duking it out against the Red Star Alliance (Russia and China, if you hadn't guessed).

The single player campaign moves players through this epic storyline, which takes place in the near future but will look hauntingly familiar to anyone who watches the news. It's the multiplayer mode that's the star of the show, however.

The online component offers a whopping 50 players the opportunity to duke it out in one epic match. Players can go at it on foot or jump into a tank, hummer or even a jet fighter. Further enriching things is the opportunity to take on different roles. As well as the usual classes available, players can opt to be the guy who (for example) calls in the airstrike, or activates the EMP weapon to disable enemy vehicles.

So, war's good for keeping your car full of oil, but it also might be good for gleaning a bit of dirty pleasure with 49 of your close friends.

Check around if people are still playing online first, since this is at its best as MP on live and has just an average SP campaign.

Always wanted to play this and probably would have bought it but got lucky this week and got COD4 for £10 in the free ads lol. Had all my data on the pc for it but oh well, will be fun until MW2 comes out! Games are getting far too cheap. I found my collection was upto 10 this week, 4 of them I hadnt played, 2 still sealed! Gotta get out of the habit of jumping on bargains ha!

Erm its £4.99 second hand. £9.99 new. Got this game from Comet for £4.99, and it was the best game played on the 360. Can't wait until the sequel. **** me if you must but I like it. And if it was new at this price id get one. I sold mine for nothing. And I regret that.

Online is very patchy for this IF you can get a game as the servers have all but been abandoned.

Got this at a car boot for £2 a few weeks back and think it's great. I'm not really a war/1st person shooter game player really but this is good fun and maybe a little easier than other FPS games.

Bought the special edition of this sealed for £8 delivered from the Amazon marketplace a week or so ago. Haven't played it yet though.

"maybe" :? i'm not very good at FPSs and I think I died twice through the whole game lol

Yea as someone above said it sounds like the servers are getting pretty empty these days and it's not surprising with minimal maps to play with (unless you REALLY think this deserves more money for DLC) and it's buggy as hell so the games are full of glitchers at times.

Nice concept poorly executed and then poorly supported to make up for it.

The UAVS and remote tanks are cool to play with though :-)

This is a surprisingly enjoyable little shooter.

It doesn't really do anything special except that the scale of battles is vast like in Battlefield 1942, but it also doesn't do anything really wrong. If you want a little shooter to to spend some time on you could do far worse.

great price!
Wont be picking it up because I'm too much of a multiplayer guy to sit around and play against AI >_>

Good game, but has been this price at loads of places.

:-D

I must be terrible then as I've been 're-deployed' 13 times! Mainly because I can't see who is shooting me!

I only have 2 deploys left and I guess I go back to the start?

Gotta say though, it's great fun for the £2 I spent.:thumbsup:

Title needds updating to reflect that this is a preowned price NOT new. Either than, or expire.
