Summary: Homefront has an interesting opening video, and the opening cutscene is very well done, drawing me into the story and making me interested in what was happening. However, once I started actually playing the game, I lost interest almost immediately. I'm shooting people, but I don't really care, since it seems a bit silly that an army of elite troops is attacking my character. I can pick up new weapons from bodies, and I got some grenades somehow, but how do I use them?
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: 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: Fun game, but single player way too short. Download time = play time, about 5 hours. MP worth the money, but if you are looking at this game just for the SP ,,, wait in till the price comes down.
Summary: I'm one of those guys who picks up a shooter mostly for the campaign, but I will dabble in the multiplayer for a couple dozen hours, then it's off to the next game. There's far too many great games to play without grinding out yet another level cap in yet another "shoot things and get points to unlock upgrades" multiplayer mode. That out of the way, Homefront is one of those games that I really regret buying, and not renting.
Summary: I finally completed this game in single player mode. I say finally because I had to take breaks due to how boring the overall game play has been. While the concept is excellent, the graphics are fine, the plot is completely linear. Way too many times, I found I had to return to my squad leader as I was able to get ahead of him. Follow the leader was the requirement of almost every screen.
Summary: A little about my gaming experience, i've been playing PC FPS games since DOOM including Counter-Strike, all the PC Call of Duty games, all the PC Battlefield games, and so many more. I would consider myself a fair reviewer, I even found the 2010 Medal of Honor to have its redeeming qualities despite most others disliking it.
Excerpt: The SP is about 5 hours long, if your a casual pew pew gamer. The first half of the game is pretty average, the second half is a lot better. Maybe not worth full price, but worth getting if you can get it cheap for a COD like game.
