Great campaign and awesome multiplayer very gruesome though.

"Good game.. Wish it was longer"
Review by Joshua
on 31st March, 2011
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,
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.

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

"Way better than the last 4 call of Duty games combined"
Review by Adam
on 5th April, 2011
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!!!”

"Not as good as he should have been."
Review by Oliver
on 27th March, 2011
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.
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.
