In the face of overwhelming oppression, you must choose whether to submit to military forces, take the fight to the enemy or even throw your lot in with the invaders. Additional features include: a single player campaign written by Hollywood screenwriter John Milius, online multiplayer support for up to 32 players, ground and vehicular combat, and more.

Home is Where the Heart Is

The year is 2027, and the world as we know it is unraveling 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. To make matters worse, 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 centers, and shopping malls shelter armored attack vehicles. A once-free people are now prisoners... or collaborators... or revolutionaries.

Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Let's start with the positives:-
- The MP is much better than the SP.
- The dystopian setting shares a few similarities with that of Half-Life 2 and at times is atmospheric and evocative of films such as Red Dawn.
- The 3rd level set in a parking lot/supermarket shows promise of what could have been if THQ had spent more time developing their own game rather than copying loads of others.

The negatives:-
- Think about all the very worst aspects of FPS games. Ensure that you lump them all into your own game. Homefront in a nutshell. Enemies that need 4 headshots before they die (even on normal) - Check. Protection missions - Check. Kestrel Super-quoshing levels of AI - Check. Having to wait for the AI to go forward before you can - Check. A few turret gun missions thrown in - Check. Some poorly designed vehicular sections - Check. A shocking script which I can only presume John Milius farmed out to his 13 year old 'Guns n Ammo' reading hick of a grandson - Check. A final level that is so far away from being what a final level should be, that it leads you to believe that once the credits roll there will be a further final mission (see Kane and Lynch 2 for a further example) - Check.
- The SP is ridiculously short. Watching Avatar would take more time, although I can't say that would be any more enjoyable. Although your eyes will feel far better from straining at the 3D effects of Avatar than from the shoddy graphics of Homefront.
- It wholeheartedly steals from so many other decent FPSes, but its scattergun approach means it just takes the worst from COD, BFBC2 etc. It almost nicks complete levels from other games.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Game, Underated. 11 July 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Homefront is unlike most game's,
With similarity's to Battlefield and call of duty just without allot of the problems you get in Call of duty, For example Noobtubers are non existant in multiplayer making multiplayer a fun and Addictive addition to this game,

Graphically: I certainly wouldn't say it's the best, The graphics are on par with call of duty black ops, and weapons have a certain 'Chunkyness' to them with some fun additions such as the I <3 my gun Camo available at level 75 there is a nice choice of weapons and attachment's some that you don't have to work your arse off for which is a nice change from your generic FPS game.

Gameplay: I enjoyed this game far more than call of duty, or battlefield, the movement is a little slow and clunky but is fairly smoothe when sprinting and Proneing out on the floor. Something that I did enjoy about this game allot is the ability to Climb to some pretty nifty place's such as a huge billboard on one of the online maps and having the ability to rain hell with what is essentially an intervention sniper rifle, Meaning it was time to turn people into burning corpse's with the white phosphurus Battle point unlock. Another key point is the battle point's system online rather than unlocking killstreak's and having a ridiculous Killstreak then Destroying the spawn area in a chopper your given tactical Audinance which you can utilise on the battlefield, This icludes UAV's Airstrike's and drones you can fly around and mark target's with, there are also vehicles available to anyone if you've got the battle point's to spare ofcourse.

Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Regardless of the rest of the reviews, I'm not making comparisons. I'm rating this as a game. Not saying *Oh but Halo has more unrealistic aliens trying to chase you* and definately not saying *Modern Warfare 3 isn't out yet and this is no Modern Warfare 3*

Lets be honest. We want to know what the GAME is like to PLAY! Not how it compares!

Now - pick up the pad and after a few minutes you'll know your way around the buttons. You get to run about shooting people and the scenery is awesome. There's a good load of stuff to keep you interested and the Single Player game itself is hard as hell - just what you want in a shooter! I for one LOVE Modern Warfare 2 but I was very disappointed with the offering from both Modern Warfare games with regards to the single player campaigns.

There's a major con. You're yet again an American chap with a gun fighting foreigners. Now - I like America, but seriously.. everyone on this planet is their enemy. It's getting old and tired. Stop picking a fight. I for one would rather a game where I'm thrown into the middle of the desert PROPER style and made to deal with all sorts of nasties!!

Now indeed I must point out - this here is a good wee game! You're chasing after all sorts of baddies and you get to fly about in helicopters and cause mayhem. There's all sorts of awesome guns from the standard old pistols (yeah gimme a break) to a nice RPG style lock on gun that blows the tanks to pieces. Not a technical review, not meant to be!

See to be honest with you - I had no internet connection when I had this game hired out. I just sat for days on end bashing the life out of it. And it was awesome fun! This won't be the game you go back to after you complete it, but trust me - BUY THIS!
