Soldier Front 2 is a free to play FPS game that was the first to introduce a MOBA inspired game mode into the genre which has proven extremely popular with gamers.

If you’ve ever wished there was a FPS MOBA game that captures the gameplay of top FPS games like Call of Duty but combines it with game mechanics from the MOBA genre you’ll love Soldier Front 2.

It is important to note that this review here mostly focuses on the ‘Hero Mode’ in Soldier Front 2 but it does also offer standard FPS gameplay and game modes.

Hero Mode in Soldier Front 2 follows the MOBA style of gameplay very closely and includes everything that you would expect including three lanes, a recall button, turrets, items, minion spawns, a mini boss and even a jungle with neutral monsters. The game also has designated weak spots on minions and neutral creatures which are important to use for maximum effectiveness and separate a spammer from a careful shooter.

Once you load up the Hero Mode in Soldier Front 2 you’ll start the game with two axes (or a similar melee weapon) which serves as your melee weapons throughout the game (they also allow a 1 hit kill from behind on enemies). By heading out and taking care of some enemy minions (or neutral monsters) you will earn gold which you can use to slowly upgrade to more weapons including varying guns and grenades.

In this MOBA based game mode you’ll also gain levels which can be spent on the three game stats; damage, armour and speed. On top of level based power ups players can also purchase boosts from the in game stores for an amount of gold.

Soldier Front 2 pulls off the combination of genres with great polish and has great appeal to MOBA and FPS fans. Outside of the Hero Mode the game is also a great free FPS experience so when you’ve had your fill of Hero Mode you can easily switch back to a deathmatch type game mode.

Summary:

  • A free to play FPS game with a MOBA game mode (Hero Mode).
  • Well-polished gameplay with a variety of game modes.
  • Lots of customisation options for your account.
  • Hero Mode stays very true to the MOBA genre.
  • Item Mall offers well priced premium extras.
