Frontlines: Fuel of War is a simple, short war game where you shoot rival soldiers in a near-future war for oil, capturing flag posts along the way. It features some of the best machine guns, rocket launchers, tanks and helicopters you'll ever see in a game.
Frontlines has been out for the Xbox 360 for a while, but I'm visiting its online component now, because the game has serious legs. No matter how many dozens of hours I spin it, I want to play more. It's one of the most compelling online games of 2008.
It's the guns and the body movements that make Frontlines so addictive online, where you and your team of up to 16 people battle another team for up to an hour. It's an incredibly smooth experience to make your soldier run, turn, spot a bad guy and shoot.
