The Unknown Ghosts

Frontlines:Fuel of War - Next week!


Recommended Posts

The game is due for release next week on PC.

 

I played in the closed beta & open beta for a little while, but never really got enough time to sit & play the game properly.

 

However, looking into it again today and some of the new videos & screens, etc. It does look pretty good.

 

Basically its a squad based fps similar to BF2 (it is the same guys who made Desert Combat for BF1942 and then BF2).

 

Infantry, Helicopters, Tanks, Drones and not too futuristic weapons at all!

 

Who's up for it?

 

I'll throw a server up on our box and will probably buy it from steam as its normally cheaper!

very first thought is that it aint as good as bf2 but i think i got my settings too high.

 

it does have one of the best intro sequences i have seen.

 

game play is very varied with many different rolls in the field so plenty of scope to adapt to your style of play.

 

recoil is mental compaired to cod weapon is not very accurate seems a bit spray and pray but then i have only used the assult gun.

 

sound is.... average

 

Graphics are great but all new games are physics seem a little clumsy and julty several bits of scenary are destructable

 

its good fun and i think after some tweaking it will be smoother.

 

ill try a few more bits then report back

Woot - got it from Zavvi this morning and have installed.

 

gd 2 dvds? Its massive.

 

Game looks really great as its running the Unreal 3 engine and it scales pretty well.

 

When they sort the server code out next week, I'll definately we throwing up a server on our dedicated box for this.

 

The team/squad aspects of it and the varied roles make it a pretty fun game and with some tweaking, it'll be a blast I think.

 

A mixture of BF2/COD4/GR/GRAW seems about right.

 

Obviuosly very early to tell how it'll be supported, but it looks like they - KAOS - will be doing alot of content/updates for it.

only real bug i have seen is a sound crakle but i think that may be something to do with my comp but it doesn't do it in cod.

 

As for the bloke who says he was running it on max everthing with a 7800 gtx and no slow down thats total rubbish! im playing it on med to low with a 7900 gt oc and its still jumpy.

Lots of people are full of crap. Someone at my school claims he can run crysis on high on his laptop with an 8500GT? or even a 5600, but says because he has 4gb of RAM it runs fine... Alas... a jackass.:closedeye

Tell him he's a complete bullshitter and direct him to our forums and we will crucify him into commiting suicide. Schools are full of wankers it is true.

Just played FLFOW and It's awesome, everything on high in nice widescreen and no problem!

The classes are fantastic, my current fav is the anti vehicle class. This could be really good fun if we all got on for a game.

Graphincs are great when you consider the size of the maps and the 64 players on. Vehicles are well balance too, I came top in my first game and totally owned a clan lol I then told them it was my first go and they tried to recruit me!! hahahaha. .TuG. Ownage is spreading faster then Britney's legs!!

Hey Silth how are you

 

Mp is ok but you need a team to play with just like BF2 you can do ok on your own but its better in a team its how its been designed, at the moment i dont think there are any dedicated servers so they are all run from user machines so finding a good one is pot luck, ones i have been on are laggy.

 

Weapons the assault seems the weapon for most although you can use the others to good effect, only played a little so will let you know more once we have a server up.

 

Some great maps though

Hi Silth,

 

Well, the multiplayer is very similar to the BF2 formula. A series of controll points on the map to capture. The variation is the "frontline" system. You have to capture all the point in a line to alter the frontline of the battle, this forcuses the battle to good effect.

 

The classes are a standard affair, Assualt, Heavy Assault, Sniper, Anti Vehicle and Spec Ops. The only thing you can change is the type of special weapon. You can have either: Airsrtikes, Recon Drones (tanks ot helos), Field repairs for vehicles or support (ammo and stuff) and EMP for crippling vehicles (like BF 2147)

Each special ability has 3 levels which level up depending on how well you do. My favourite it the airstrike, the "Fuel Bomb" at level 3 is amazing and looks like Napalm!

 

Classes are well balanced, an anti vehicle player can easily take out most vehicles bar the heavy tanks which can take a few shots, and you do lock on with the missiles (none of the free firing crap). The assualt guns are the only let down. They are very inaccurate over about 20 metres, Spec ops submachine gun is far far more accurate (work that on one out???)

Accuracy is hugely effected by your stance, laying down makes you nearly 100% accurate. The sniper rifles are far too powerful, this really needs to be sorted out as the view distance is so far, they can take you out from miles away.

 

Vehicles :

Air vehicles are so easy to fly with a mouse it's silly. Land vehicles are the same, some turrets take ages to turn like in real life but the effects are devastating.

 

Now...the maps :

this has got be the game's biggest selling point. Each map is HUGE, and I mean HUGE!! One map is a derelict bombed out city, think what the city looks like in Cloverfield. There are literally hundreds of little nooks and crannies in the broken buildings to hide in,the ways in which you can flank seem infinite. The scope for infantry only battles is good but most of the servers seem to be full of vehicle whores at the moment.

This game does need a few tweaks as in my opiniion it has been badly ported and a PC exclusive version would have been better and one thing that get on my nerves is that you can't lean!! At the moment it feels like a good Beta version but I'm sure patches will be out soon.

 

This game could be good if everone in the clan played it, I just hope that it doesn't end up like Crysis MP, whic could be exellent but none of the other guys play it :(

 

See on the server soon mate, (we have a match tonight so it will probably be Thursday.

 

Regards
