Summary: I actually enjoyed this games original take on the FPS and it's 'red dawn' like story (written by the same person who wrote red dawn, the movie) being a casual player I got most of the way through the game but got stuck near the end and couldn't finish the single player story as there are no...
Summary: If judged strictly on its merits of gameplay and storyline, this would be one of my favorite FPS - gunplay is decent, weapons are varied and plentiful, and the subject matter is unique and, frankly, very heavy and disturbing.
Summary: Ok so in the beginning I was not very impressed with the game. It seemed like a polished up video game for Red Dawn (which it is but...) but as the story line progressed I found myself very much wrapped up in the game and then suddenly the end credits started rolling. My reaction was predictable.
Much potential, but single player campaign falls flat on its face

Summary: This is just a review of the single player campaign. Homefront starts out with a fantastic, and interesting premise. The 15 or so years in the future the United States has been invaded by North Korea.
Summary: The multiplayer is very good, but the game falls short on the single player campaign. The story is good, but the campaign is too short. The narrative could be drawn out for an entire series of games but the missions just touch on parts of what could be a very intriguing story.
Pros: The multiplayer is great. There's not really a whole lot new, but the ability to purchase upgrades and vehicles is pretty cool.
Cons: The game doesn't really present much in the way of new gameplay. The story, while interesting, is nothing new and reminds me of Freedom Fighters (although I found that game much more entertaining). The single player campaign is just too short. It's entertaining at times, but not fulfilling enough...
Summary: This review will be based on two areas, single player and multiplayer. I was able to beat this game in less than four hours. How can THQ constitute selling a game that you can beat in less than 4 hours?
Summary: To be fair, I don't care for the multi-player part of this game or others like this. I want a strong single-player game, and then if there is an enjoyable MP side of it, all the better. In my opinion, too many of these games devolve into the exact same games in multiplayer.
Summary: I'll admit that I enjoyed Homefront more, the more I played. Having said that, it still didn't add up to much. The graphics, movement, animations, and voice acting are all very sub-par by today's standards.
