All right, put your hands down, let's not jump to conclusions: this game is actually more like ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals Generals'' than ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert Red Alert]]'' in all honesty, and for [[FollowTheLeader the uncanny resemblance]], it has most certainly been criticised for that. There is one unique feature, though! You can hop into any defensive turret and control it in first person mode! [[TheGimmick Or...you could just allow the auto-aiming to do it for you and not murder your pc's graphics card with the choppy framerate]].

Despite the derivative nature of this game, this is most certainly one RTS game that NeedsMoreLove. The problem, however, is that if you're planning to run it on Windows Vista or 7, you're going to need a patch. But fret not!

''War Front: Turning Point'' is a 2007 PC RealTimeStrategy game developed by Creator/DigitalReality. The story utilises a WhatIf scenario where Hitler gets assassinated earlier than usual, somehow allowing technology to advance ahead of schedule, and giving the Allies, Germans and Russians some frankly insane weapons ranging from tanks with freeze rays to pre-modern era stealth bombers to that very HumongousMecha that you see proudly displayed on the cover.
