Product Description

Platform: PLAYSTATION 3

Product Description

The year is 2027. The world as we know it is unravelling after fifteen years of economic meltdown and widespread global conflict over dwindling natural resources.

A once proud America has fallen, her infrastructure shattered and military in disarray. Crippled by a devastating EMP strike, the USA is powerless to resist the ever expanding occupation of a savage, nuclear armed Greater Korean Republic.

Abandoned by her former allies, the United States is a bleak landscape of walled towns and abandoned suburbs. This is a police state where high school stadiums have become detention centres, and shopping malls shelter armoured attack vehicles. A once-free people are now prisoners… or collaborators… or revolutionaries.

Join the Resistance, stand united and fight for freedom against an overwhelming military force in Homefront’s gripping single player campaign penned by John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Red Dawn). Stand alongside a cast of memorable characters as an emotional plot unfolds in this terrifyingly plausible near-future world. Experience visceral, cinematic first-person shooter action as you fight your way across Occupied USA using guerrilla tactics, and commandeer military vehicles and advanced drone technology to defeat the enemy.

Multiplayer brings epic warfare to the online arena as infantry, tanks, attack helicopters and combat drones battle across huge, open battlefields. A rich feature set offering layers of tactical depth combined with a game-changing innovation in the multiplayer space will set a new benchmark in online warfare.

2.0 out of 5 stars Red Yawn 4 April 2011
By John Clayton III VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Well... If this isn't a textbook example of a generic, unremarkable first person shooter, then I don't know what is. Everything about it is utterly pedestrian that I pretty much forgot all about it as soon as I switched off.

Set in the near future where the USA has disintegrated under the weight of a broken economy and has been invaded and occupied by the armies of a powerful and newly united Korean Republic, you play a former military pilot who is railroaded into joining the resistance as they carry out a grand plan to strike a major blow against the occupying forces. Yes, this is basically the movie Red Dawn or last generation's Freedom Fighters with a more modern bent. The plot is wafer thin, dumb as a brick and proves immediately forgettable by the end.

The game itself is just... bland. The controls are identical to Call of Duty, lifted straight over with no differences. However Homefront isn't nearly as smooth or precise to control as any CoD game you can think of. The levels are linear, unimaginative and filled with tedious drawn out fights with endlessly respawning enemies and capped off with a small group of soldiers you are constantly travelling with who serve as a ridiculously patronising hand holding device, endlessly spelling out every action you need to take right down to when you should make your move to sneak up on enemies during stealth sequences. This game treats the player as though they were an imbecile. There are also sequences of 'plot' in here where you just do stuff like walk around settlements and camps talking to people that drag on way too long and during which your character moves at half speed, making these sequences slow, boring chores to get through.

2.0 out of 5 stars i feel like a fool 24 Mar 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
As many of you have already quoted, there are many flaws with this game, now i feel like a fool for buying it too! I was suckered in by some crafty advertising (every time I clicked on PS3 games, it was there) and the possibility of an amazing FPS. Im not a massive fan of FPS but i was very interested in the storyline (which on paper sounds pretty good) so though why not! The graphics are shocking, I played Medal of Honour:Frontline on my PS2 recently and they are no better (if not worse), to be honest I would say that MOH:FL is a far superior game to this pile of rubbish. It just looks messy and jumpy on scene, with the Gameplay and controls being very poor.

Only got it yesterday, now im off to the shops to trade it in for something worth playing!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but has it's flaws. 19 Mar 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am writing this review having just completed the single player campaign on the game. Overall, I felt that the story and ideas were portrayed fairly well. The themes that run through this game are somewhat similar to the missions on Modern Warfare 2 in that you are defending the US from an invasion force, however this game definitely has more of a 'family' theme running through it, in that the people you are fighting with have clearly been together, fighting for a considerable amount of time.

After reading early review, which commented in the shortness of the single player mode I can see what they mean, the end of the story is rather abrupt, but it didn't really leave me feeling that I had been cheated in anyway. THQ have clearly left themselves open to creating a sequel to this game if they feel like it, and in a way it would be interesting to see the rammifications of the games ending. As far as graphics go, they're not the best you'll see, but I found that after a while i'd gotten over it, and began to enjoy the game for what it is. This is definitely not a game changer as far as FPS's go, but it's good in that it is trying to move forward, and bring the genre into a new style of storytelling. The story is actually the strongest part of the game, and the eerily nostrodamus like look into our future. Overall, the single player mode is solid, but does have it's flaws. I would probably suggest that people rent the game rather than buy, but that is before I take on the multiplayer aspect.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good Concept, Poor Execution 4 May 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Whilst the storyline behind this game is thoroughly intriguing, the game itself offers very little in terms of what isn't already available on the market currently.

As a genre First Person Shooter (FPS) games have become a little overloaded of late. Compared to the other choices on the market this game does not compete in the same league. The controls feel somewhat clumsy compared to COD and the action game play seems far to weighted against you. You can neither go rushing ahead of your team to take some North Koreans down without getting an RPG to the head, nor can you hang back too far as you miss all the action. This is one of the fundamental flaws of the game, shoot and duck, shoot and duck is a constant theme as you cannot take too many hits. If you just want to see the storyline through to the end (which isn't that impressive in itself) then just sit back and wait for your teammate to do the work for you. This of course is easy for them to do as every AI is simply firing on your position and ignoring them 90% of the time.

Whilst the background story to the single player campaign is an excellent concept, the in-depth elements do not perform and as with so many FPS nowadays, is far too short. Characters are very 2 dimensional (not that there are a lot to go with in the first place). Elements such as the "Goliath" automated tank appearing constantly from nowhere gets annoying. Game-play in itself gets very repetitive and the enemies all look identical, bar some bring in blue and other in red uniforms.

Personally I would say there are far better FPS games on the market that you can spend your money on, CoD (Modern warfare or black ops), Medal of Honor (Also a game that was far, far too short), Crysis 2 (graphically the best of the alternatives). As we look from more and more from this genre to set a new high standard I feel Homefront is simply a step in the wrong direction.
