War Front – Turning Point has just hit the game shelves for all you PC gamers out there.
Recently released as Turning Point: Fall Of Liberty on both PS3 and Xbox360 platforms, the game makes it’s PC debut.
This is a WWII fighting game with a difference, it is based around a true incident that happened in New York in 1931 when Winston Churchill was hit by a taxi.
In reality he survived to lead Great Britain into the war against Nazi Germany, but what would have happened if he had not?
This game follows that bizarre scenario, and without his leadership the UK falls into the hands of the Third Reich in 1940. This gives the Germans time to develop their weapons, Jet Fighters and Atomic Bombs to name a few, which upsets the yanks, and in 1953 the now well prepared army leads an attack on America… fierce controversial stuff!
The player assumes the role of Dan Carson, up until now an average New York construction worker, who is caught up in the initial German invasion of his city.
However unlike other games Dan is not trying to win the war, he is trying to survive! He first tries to escape from New York and somehow manages to get to Washington where he joins the resistance. His adventure leads him eventually to London where he must find and destroy the bomb that threatens his country. Exciting stuff!
There are a couple of great things about this game, firstly the clever use of real life monuments as seen today, mainly getting blown up of course! The Chrysler Building, White House and London’s Tower Bridge all make appearances.
And then there is the way that the game includes many advanced versions of weapons that were either in design or actually used in WWII, Huge Tanks, Massive Zeppelin’s, Attack Blimps and Vulcan style Bombers to name a few. WOW!
If you enjoyed: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Medal Of Honour, End War, Army Of Two…. You get the picture! This is a must for your collection.
