Game description: Developed exclusively for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, this game offers a companion experience to Call of Duty: World at War, featuring its own unique set of missions, engagements and challenges that are set within the Pacific and European campaigns through many of the pivotal battles that led to the end of the world's greatest war.
The Game has 4 campaigns: War in the Pacific, Winter Offensive, Victory in Europe, and Victory in the Pacific. The player takes on the role of a marine in the Pacific campaigns and both British and American soldiers in the European campaign. Unlike other "World at War" titles, Final Fronts has a training level. The War in the Pacific and Victory in the Pacific Campaigns see Private Joe Miller (a reference to World at War protagonist C. Miller) and his fellow soldiers Sgt. Roebuck and Pvt. Polonsky (also in World at War) fight their way through Japanese defenses on Guadalcanal, Betio, Saipan, and Okinawa

This game suffers from texture cache issues that cause massive slowdown, so at the start of each mission you must press F9 twice to swap between Software and Hardware renderers in order to clear the cache. Once that's done, the game runs flawlessly at 2x resolution with no noticeable glitches- though it's not quite fast enough to handle 3x resolution consistently. Recommend using Direct3D 12 with High Blending Accuracy for best results.
