My Review Of The Base Game

“I love Second Front but there are a lot of things that still manage to piss me off a lot of times when I’m playing it. This doesn’t mean I don’t love the game, and in fact, I would argue is one of the games with the most potential to come out since I started reviewing games in Strategy and Wargaming all the way back in 2017. It’s an excellent entry in the genre, and its low price point of 33,99€ (or your regional equivalent) only makes Second Front an easy recommendation in my book for more experienced wargamers, but it’s going to be a hard sell for newcomers to the genre and it most certainly won’t dethrone Battle Academy and Battle Academy 2 has the neighborhood friendly wargames.

Don’t let that deter you, however, if you love complex mechanics and thinking over every move you make, love unforgivable and brutal ground-to-ground combat, and are looking for a modular wargame where scenario creation comes rather naturally, then what are you waiting for?

If anything, what Second Front has the most going for it, it’s the overabundance of complexity and the fact that it isn’t afraid to embrace, in fact, I would argue it’s one of the most complex wargames at the tactical scale level, surpassed solely (only in some aspects) by the likes of Combat Mission and the Graviteam Tactics series. And due to this, Second Front earns a respectable five stars and a Strategy and Wargaming Golden Seal of Approval for experienced wargamers. Younglings, however, must proceed with caution and don’t be fooled by friendly graphics.”
