Frontline Commando: D-Day review

Bringing the battlefield to the smaller screen, is Frontline Commando worth downloading?

Frontline Commando is a 3D third-person shooter that sees you travel back to WW2 to tackle the German army. It isn’t an unfamiliar scenario for most console games, but there’s a distinct lack of this type of game readily available for Android users.

To have a chance of survival, the game starts you off with a rifle and a few grenades, with more weapons, ammo and added extras available to you as you progress through the game. The selection of weapons is surprisingly good, but in the middle of an intense gunfight it can be a bit tricky trying to switch weapons without getting plastered with enemy gunfire at the same time.

As you progress through the game you’ll be given new targets to take out and new objectives to complete. Some objectives can be as simple as taking shelter behind a wall, with some then escalating to taking out an entire enemy stronghold. Between each objective you’ll need to take out a certain number of enemies before you can advance. Controls also work well for the most part, but for the most authentic experience you’ll want to use a Bluetooth controller as the touchscreen controls can get a bit fiddly if you’ve a large collection of equipment at your disposal.

Despite the game being a free download, Frontline Commando does include a number of in-app purchases that you can buy. Although the game is entirely playable without needing to purchase any of these, the game does constantly remind you (and we mean constantly) that there are different in-app purchases you can take a look at.

Frontline Commando is a worthy addition to the Play store, offering a great third-person shooter experience which its fast and fluid gameplay only marred by the constant update on in-app purchases.
