Windows 10 Review for Dummies
By Ivory_Soul
Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Frontlines: Fuel of War Member Review for the Xbox360

What do these ratings mean?

Unfortunately, the almost believable premise is about the only thing in the game that works as it should. Although Frontlines sports sophisticated machinery - gadgets and vehicles and doo-hickeys galore - it seems to be lacking the juice to run all that neat stuff. Ironically, the supposed widespread lack of energy is an apt metaphor for the game itself - a promising battlefield-style shooter that ultimately just up and dies at the curb. It might look good in the garage, but before you know it, Frontlines will be jacked up on cinder blocks and left to fertilize the yard with rust.

The game’s appeal rests heavily on its multiplayer Battlefield-style online matches, as Frontlines offers a single-player campaign only six hours in length. It is no Call of Duty 4 or Halo 3, but the various missions in the campaign, in which you play as a generic hero-soldier fighting to secure oil fields, are a good introduction to the Motor Trend-worthy collection of vehicles and gadgetry. Unlike similar titles, such as Warhawk or Shadowrun, Frontlines can’t be faulted for not giving us something to play when the servers are down.

The vehicles and gadgets are what make Frontlines special. Several varieties of tanks and jeeps can be driven, each with unique weapons. Some tanks have missiles, others cannons, others flak-guns for aircraft. But you can also take to the air in various kinds of helicopters - both troop transport and attack - and eventually in jet fighters. Even if there’s an oil crisis, you’ve sure got a lot of ways to get around (and no gas gauges!).
