Summary: I'm not a hard-core gamer, but I do enjoy a good FPS. I don't care much for multi-player or online games (those kids who skip school to play all day and learn all the tricks kinda ruin it for those of us who have to work for a living), so I go for the single-player games. Good points on this one: it was a great storyline, lots of adventure, non-stop action, a real joy to play. Bad points...c'mon, beating single player on "Hell" mode in like 8 hours? Seriously?
Summary: It's not as smooth as MW2 and lags often whether on completely low settings or high.
Pros: It's a nice change from the call of duty series. The drones are pretty cool too.
Cons: The game was actually pretty good before they patched it. A sniper could reasonably hit someone in the chest and they'd die... (realistic to me).. and using an SMG or assault rifle wouldn't required a full clip to bring someone down either. However, now you can line them up in a firing squad and they still wouldn't die.
Summary: Frankly I didn't like HomeFront at all... the story concept was the only thing remotely interesting about the game. The characters had virtually no AI and on several occasions blocked my character into a corner making it impossible for me to move and getting me killed. The game play was totally unrealistic... at one point one of my team mates and an enemy character were standing in the back of the same truck...
Summary: I was hoping Homefront would be a good multiplayer filler while I waited for Battlefield 3, but this turned out to be a disappointing game. I just stopped playing it less than a month after its release due to glaring flaws. Its performance is just awful even after the first patch. I played Homefront on a laptop with an AMD Phenom II 2.0 GHz quad core and Mobility Radeon 5650 at 1366x768, and the best I could do was 20-30 FPS with every setting at the lowest.
Summary: This half a-- game needs to die off soon and Battlefield 3 needs to come sooner.. This was a total waste of Time and Money.. Half my gaming friends couldn't play this wanna be and the other half thought it suc-ed too..
Summary: When I set the difficulty level on easy, I expect that. I'm an average gamer and can keep up with the big boys, but I died countless times in every mission which was frustrating. I'm selling it back to gamestop asap. Also, the game was super short.
Summary: This game lacks in every dimension. Although the story line is plausible in a "Red Dawn" scenario, the game play is monotonous and predictable. You have to follow the characters through a mission without deviation from their instructions. Don't try and flank an attack; it'll just get you killed. As for the actual construction of the game; the physics are all wrong. From incorrect firearm recoil, reloading and cover Homefront gets it wrong on all counts.
Horrible Game, do not pay more than 20 bucks......

Summary: This game is a slap in the face and is further evidence of bad console ports. The gfx are crippled, fuzzy and not polished. I'm not a gfx fiend, but gameplay had better make of up for. This game is lacking on nearly all front. The story and by story I mean backstory is decent, once the game gets running little attention is paid to the story. There is no character development to speak of. Half the game is spent in slow motion cut scenes that leave you dazed, ala COD.
