Frontline Commando for Mac is a third person shooter that sends players right into battle.
Using familiar popular gameplay mechanics like destructible cover, high-powered weapons, and 3D graphics, Frontline Commando is an impressive shooter for mobile devices.
Presented as a one-man army, Frontline Commando offers an experience very close to home consoles. The high quality graphics are impressive, containing smooth animations and outstanding effects. The game is like an action movie where players are given weapons and assigned missions to get revenge.
Even with a lot of action on the screen, Frontline Commando does not suffer lag or glitches and is consistently challenging. The audio of the game also envelops players in the multiple environments and various enemy types with different sound effects.
Frontline Commando’s controls are also very polished. Aiming is controlled by moving fingers around the screen with designated fire, reload, and cover movement buttons. There is also a duck button that serves as the reload when near an ammo crate. Include the various purchasable weapons and Frontline Commando’s gameplay can change rapidly.
Various missions require players to eliminate all enemies, survive for a length of time, or even rescue innocent people in the war zone. The variety of missions keeps the experience fresh. Weapons are purchased with money earned through levels or in-game currency purchases. Some weapons and items can only be purchased with the in-game money.
Frontline Commando is a great example of an excellent game using touch controls to manipulate the character onscreen. The experience of Frontline Commando is amazing because the game plays very smoothly.
On the downside, the game requires too many in-app purchases. Even to reach higher levels, purchases are necessary which is annoying, even if the game itself is free.
Frontline Commando is overall a decent 3rd person shooter that gets quickly addictive.
