War on American soil isn't a foreign concept for first-person shooters, but few do it with the grim dedication of Homefront. Its chilling vision of life in occupied America is vividly illustrated through lengthy scenes that depict the brutality of...

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...

It is difficult to say anything good about Homefront. It's a half-baked idea crammed into a half-baked game, and while I'll freely admit that a quasi-realistic military-style first-person shooter with a heavy focus on the multiplayer mode is not...

You might not remember, but the 80s were sort of the “golden decade” for action films. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stalone ruled the box office with Eddie Murphy, Bruce Willis, Mel Gibson, Kurt Russell, Chuck Norris, Jean –Claude Van Damme, and...

Enjoyable action

Story has big holes ; Short ; Thin multiplayer 9that should have been left off in favor of more single player game)

I was looking forward to Homefront. I’d like to compare it to Out For Justice. You enjoy it at the time, but looking back on it, there is a lot that should have been better.

Homefront is one of those games that had so much promise, but unfortunately something has definitely gone awry during the development process.

Frontlines: Fuel of War might not have set the world on fire, but it was a standout first effort from a new studio moving up from the mod scene. For all of its shortcomings, there were many things about it, from a fantastic array of vehicles to...

Frontlines developer Kaos Studios hears the call of duty.

Multiplayer does some clever stuff

Everything about the single player, 40% of the multiplayer

A battling-commies-in-the-suburbs scenario doesn't make up for so-so gameplay.

After you’ve been knocked unconscious for the sixth time during one of the frequent cutscenes, it might be a good opportunity to switch to the superior multiplayer mode, which is made appealingly madcap by the sheer number of tanks, jeeps, UAV drones,...

Some of the character models look a bit funny, but Kaos did a great job taking a number of urban U.S. cities and turning them into a battlefield. Eerie radio chatter and visual symbols of Americana make Homefront's message even more haunting.

Clearly the best part of the trainer is the super speed option. Since your ammo load out isn't as heavy as other games, being able to run quickly to dropped ammo is essential. You'll also have your regular FPS mainstays like unlimited ammo and health....

We take a good look at Kaos Studios' FPS and follow-up to Frontlines: Fuel of War. The story sounds promising, and the PC multiplayer is packed with features, but is it enough?

Kaos Studios is a name familiar to a fair portion of the multiplayer FPS community -- the developer started off as Trauma Studios, creating the excellent Desert Combat mod based on Battlefield 1942.

Too Derivative

Interesting story and presentation

Too derivative of military shooters before it

The solemn cutscenes and emotional moments only exist in the first half of the game. And by “first half,” I mean the first two hours. According to Steam, the single-player campaign lasted me 3.9 hours. That isn't a problem in itself, but it is a...
