The game itself has an interesting concept, North Korean occupation of the US and the intro and the first level are excellent at drawing you into the story but sadly the graphics are average and the dialogue was out of sych which took me out of the game. The most frustating thing about this game is how linear and restrictive the game for example you cannot explore your surroundings, you most follow npc's to the objectives and you have to wait for them to open a door etc It made the game a frustrating and poor expi
The campaign is only 4-5 hours long and has no replay value.
An average shooter, with a short single player campaign.Crazee | Feb. 22, 2013 | See all Crazee's reviews »
Homefront is a pretty generic shooter, set in the near future. If you've played CoD, MW, BF, etc. you wont be finding anything new here.
I only played the single player campaign, which was quite short. I'd say it's about 4 hours of gameplay, split across 7 chapters. This means it can be easily completed in a few short bursts, or one day for the hardcore amongst us.
The combat is what you'd expect from a modern shooter. The movement feels a little sluggish at times, and on more than one occasion I found myself stuck on nothing.
The weapon diversity is lacking, there's probably less than 15 weapons in the game. I would've liked to have seen more pistol action also.
The graphics are average, although I was impressed in the final chapter where they seemed to step up a notch.
The story was bland and predictable and I didn't care about the characters at all.
Overall, the game is nothing special but was fun enough for the time I spent playing it. We could all use some mindless fun sometimes.
Bottom Line: Average game, short single player campaign.
