War Front: Turning Point

Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: War Front: Turning Point really doesn’t do anything new for RTS games but it does take a neat story idea and combine it with some pretty cool units. It is a pretty fun game to play, especially if you can find a friend. This is a very good game, but timing, novelty and a number of stupid annoyances prevent it from being great. And I don’t think it will ever get old to frag Nazi’s.

  • Excerpt: As a human being, I am decidedly imperfect. In fact, I am a bundle of flaws: physical, intellectual, emotional--you name the aspect of existence, and I'll show you a glaring fault. As a result, I am sometimes intimidated by perfection. Have I read that great American novel? Maybe I'm not worthy. Seen that Oscar-winning film? Nah, it would just be over my head.

  • Excerpt: War Front: Turning Point is another World War II RTS, but it’s not your typical WWII RTS. It takes place in an alternate reality in which Hitler was assassinated early in the war, although his death apparently had no effect on Germany’s ambitions of conquest. In fact, the country’s plans of European domination prove to be far more successful with Hitler out of the picture and the game’s campaign opens with the Germans occupying London.

Wondering, Wandering WWII

GIN

  • Excerpt: Being a big fan of The History Channel, it's always fun when they ask "what if" something happened differently than the actual event. And this type of speculative history has been a mainstay of fiction books for some time, with authors like Harry Turtledove really pushing it to its limits. So it makes sense that this genre would make it into games. In fact, it does all the time with games that put forward "aliens invade Earth" plots.

War Front: Turning Point

22 May 2007
  • Summary: Most missions require you to eradicate an enemy base from the map to move on… yawn. And if you’ve played any RTS from the late ’90s forward, you’ll find little that is new. The multiplayer offerings are rich, however—up to 10 people can play a single game online, and there are a few interesting game modes in addition to the standard deathmatch options.
  • Pros: Up to 10 people can play at once!
  • Cons: Let's be honest, it's pretty old school--little has changed in RTS games since the late 1990s.

War Front: Turning Point Review

GameSpot
2 March 2007
  • Summary: War Front: Turning Point is a decidedly different take on the WWII real-time strategy game, complete with jetpack Nazis and freeze rays.
  • Pros: Alternative-history setting, sci-fi weapons that bolster traditional WWII real-time strategy units, secret orders multiplayer mode, bombastic visuals
  • Cons: Fairly generic action RTS gameplay, poor vehicle pathfinding, some minor visual and audio problems
