Excerpt: Homefront plays like it was made by somebody who doesn't understand the human concept of "fun." Everything about it is off somehow, from the weapons to the character design to the levels to the single-player campaign's plot, like it was rushed to market as quickly as possible before anyone could...
Conclusion: Overall, Homefront is a game, that in the time period from when it was announced, to it's release....was clearly rushed. The game was announced back in the middle of 2010. From then, up to March 2011, the game had plenty of time to be tested, certified, and solidified.
Summary: Kaos Studios strived to create a unique, shocking and engrossing experience with Homefront’s campaign. However, their goal was only partially met. The final product is too generic and is unfortunately affected by far too many bugs.
Excerpt: I think we're at something of a crossroads when it comes to dealing with war in games. Despite the numerous advances in storytelling over the past few years, we have yet to see gaming's Apocalypse Now or Full Metal Jacket .
Pros: Running over someone with the humvee in multiplayer.
Cons: Being killed by an unseen grenade/gas barrel/guy hitting me with the butt of a gun while my AI teammates shoot backwards.
Excerpt: If imitation is truly the sincerest form of flattery, the Call of Duty 4 team must feel pretty adulated right about now. Homefront is yet another in a long line of FPS games conceived in the shadow of Modern Warfare's enormous genre-defining success, but Kaos Studios' vision of a destroyed, occupied...
Excerpt: The year is 2027. North Korea has annexed South Korea and they've taken over the world. Even the mighty United States of America has fallen, and has been occupied by the son of Kim Jong-il. But pockets of resistance fight on.
Summary: Homefront won’t win GOTY or anything like that, but it does have an interesting story of a war-torn America and shows that right and wrong are two sides of the same coin. Online isn’t at its best right now, but it will get there through updates over time and is still addictive despite this.
Summary: Battle Points prevent Homefront’s multiplayer from being a dull Black Ops knock-off. Just looking at the basics, there’s very little reason to pick this over Activision’s staple, but the added enhancements make this a viable alternative that some players may prefer.
