5 stars "Good game"

The game is good like it. But the single player is too short. Wish it was longer. I finished the single player in one day!

But if there is Homefront 2 I will buy it :) Would like to finish the war the save the world :p

3 stars "Not as good as he should have been."

I bought the tie-in book a few weeks ago and loved it. It was incredibly engrossing and really showed how terrible the world was both before and after the Korean invasion.

Homefront the game on the other hand…wasn't. The gameplay was like just about every other FPS in the genre. The graphics weren't that good, but not as bad as some other games. And like just about every other FPS, the main game is about five hours long.

The bes thing I liked about this game was the universe. It starts off similar to Half-Life, with a bus ride along a street seeing people being torn away from their families, people shot on the side of the street, Korean soldiers beating random civilians, etc. An unlike just about every FPS out there, it was disturbing at how both disturbing and how emotionally engaging it was.

I hope there is a sequel that delves muuuuch more into the universe (As well as muuuch longer). In the end, get it on special if you also enjoy multiplayer (Which I never played), or rent it for the single player.

4 stars "Good game.. Wish it was longer"

This game is pretty good but takes awhile to get interesting while playing campaign. I wish it was longer though as it got really interesting near the end and then just ended so quickly leaving so much open but other than that it is a pretty good campaign, especially for a smaller game company, they did do a pretty good job overall with the game.

Multiplayer is pretty cool, just like any other fps such as COD, Battlefield Bad Company 2 etc. Apart from the lag it's pretty fun and should keep you entertained for awhile with cool perks and gun unlocks as well as the ability like Battlefield Bad Company 2 to unlock and use vehicles such as tanks, helicopters etc.

I do hope that they make a Homefront 2 so that the game is able to continue from where it left off and hopefully with a longer campaign too.

4 stars "Way better than the last 4 call of Duty games combined"

When this was first announced I was indifferent as I did not like the predecessor from this Studio – Frontlines. And as others said, did we really need another FPS game when the market is saturated in them?

But Gameplay footage reminded me of Ghost recon.

As time went by and New footage was shown, I liked the idea that this game was a modern retelling of one of my favourite cult movies as a kid – Red Dawn. Written by John Milius who wrote Red Dawn, the single player campaign is a little short but a hell of a lot of fun.

And the Multiplayer is much more balanced and fair than Call of Duty's has become since game breaking perks were introduced with Modern Warfare 1.

Yes the servers had major issues when the game was launched, but these were patched a week after release and now the servers run great.

The multiplayer on Home front is fast paced and forces teams to work together and work tactically.

Best quotes heard while playing MP:
“Wow this is harder than Call of Duty!”
“42 assist 0 kills. YEAH!!!”

Description

The year is 2027. The world as we know it is unraveling after fifteen years of economic meltdown and widespread global conflict over dwindling natural resources.

A once proud America has fallen, her infrastructure shattered and military in disarray. Crippled by a devastating EMP strike, the USA is powerless to resist the ever expanding occupation of a savage, nuclear armed Greater Korean Republic.

Abandoned by her former allies, the United States is a bleak landscape of walled towns and abandoned suburbs. This is a police state where high school stadiums have become detention centers, and shopping malls shelter armored attack vehicles. A once-free people are now prisoners… or collaborators… or revolutionaries.

Join the Resistance, stand united and fight for freedom against an overwhelming military force in Homefront’s gripping single player campaign penned by John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Red Dawn). Stand alongside a cast of memorable characters as an emotional plot unfolds in this terrifyingly plausible near-future world. Experience visceral, cinematic first-person shooter action as you fight your way across Occupied USA using guerrilla tactics, and commandeer military vehicles and advanced drone technology to defeat the enemy.

Multiplayer brings epic warfare to the online arena as infantry, tanks, attack helicopters and combat drones battle across huge, open battlefields. A rich feature set offering layers of tactical depth combined with a game-changing innovation in the multiplayer space will set a new benchmark in online warfare.

Features:
  • Discover a terrifyingly plausible near-future world - the familiar has become alien in this nightmare vision of Occupied USA
  • Fight for a cause - join a cast of memorable characters as your resistance cell wages a guerrilla war against overwhelming military odds in the name of Freedom
  • Witness the human cost of war - a gripping story from the pen of John Milius is told through immersive, interactive 1st person cut scenes
  • Experience explosive FPS gameplay - battle through a dynamic mix of infantry and vehicle combat in a gripping single player campaign boasting intense, memorable set pieces
  • Take the battle online - experience large scale multiplayer action like never before in epic infantry and vehicle warfare
