Cool Can't wait to fight for my country on the HomeFront

Yea, I am pressing my luck on Homefront I mean I mainly want to get it because of the open vehicle environments i love playing games like that. Will it beat any Battlefield game HELL NO!
I know that I can fight for my country on the soil in other games, but I just want to check this game out mix it up a little I like the idea of purchasing vehicles my question "is there a limit of how many of the vehicles are out on the battlefield"
The game looks fun, hopefully it is hopefully it plays nice and smooth due to 32 player online.
Can't wait to kick some North Korean ass, no one and I mean no one messes with the great ol USA if its invading or being invaded.
So if you are planning to get this game for the X-box 360 leave your gamertag (if you want)
So March 8th looking forward to it,
ooh rah!

Looks interesting. Kind of "/eye roll oh great the commies invade again" game.

5 hour single player campaign. It's just not enough...

All these games with CODlike multiplayer as their sole attractiion...


If I wanted COD I'd play COD.



Now "RISK Factions" on steam, that's a fun take on a classic.

Half Life 2 was completed in 3 hours using the quickest methods possible, but without hacks or cheats or glitches.

Homefront looks average. I'm going to save my money for Battlefield 3, coming later this year. Or Skyrim.

It takes a lot of practice to play Half Life 2 in 3 hours, I don't think it is a fair comparison.

This game just doesn't look that interesting. Ill stick with crysis 2 only for the campaign though. The multiplayer demo was cringe worthy at best.

Got it. Played it.


Graphics... C work. Not too shabby, but I felt like it was kind of, weak. And player interaction with the world just felt fake. Can't really explain it that well. (Flying was absolutely miserable, felt like you were driving a nice camera)

Campaign, this was a missed opportunity. In the early stages, you start out pretty confused as to whats going on, but morbidly aware of the Korean occupation. I immediately felt real emotional drives to fight the occupiers.
(The first five minutes of the game are a passive observer on a bus moving through occupied territory. It hurt. Watching a mother try to comfort a screaming child while she's being walled to be shot... Yeah. Morbid. I get shudders just thinking about it.)

The first few missions are filled with atrocities, aaaaand... Then you do some stuff, kill some guys, and the game ends. They stirr you up in such a revolutionary spirit (At least for the US) then kinda leave you hanging with some standard FPS missions and end just like that. Missed opportunity for a truly great game.


Multiplayer, love it. Love it love it love it. It has guns, drones, vehicles, airstrikes, different modes... And best of all, no kill streaks. Instead, you earn permanent (for the match) points to spend on up to two extra's you can change with your loadout. Drones, airstrikes, RPG's, flak vests, you name it.

Only thing I was looking forward to in this game was the "Epic" singleplayer that it has hyping to have. After reading your review. Not gonna get it. Save up for BF3.

But I think it did have an opportunity to be great. A different take, not WW2, not fighting old enemies, but a different enemy in a different location, which is a nice change.

Could of been great but it's not I guess.

They should have hyped the multiplayer. Excellent.

Why can't we play on the invaders side? That would be more interesting. A nice change.

If you play the game, you will not want to sympathize with the invaders, at all.



No matter what country you're from.


If you did sympathize with them, I'd feel obliged to strike you.

I never said I wanted to sympathise with them.

Didn't the early Call Of Duty games put you in the view of a Russian soldier? (related to my query)

Those were the WW2 ones and they didn't make the Russians look perfect either.
