Homefront (Xbox 360)

 

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...

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

Call of the Lowest Common Denominator.

Multiplayer mode has potential

Shamefully derivative; silly story

The most intensely absurd moment I experienced in Homefront occurred when -- shortly after finishing the requisite dull sniper mission, but slightly before the knockoff AC130 section -- I hopped in a chopper with some American military grunts. The...

Alternate histories are often some of the most interesting fiction. With the onslaught of first-person shooters hitting the market these days, it is hard to stand out.

Interesting narrative ; Multiplayer is lots of fun

Very short campaign ; Dated visuals ; Shooting feels uninspired ; Lack of maps online

Alternate histories are often some of the most interesting fiction. With the onslaught of first-person shooters hitting the market these days, it is hard to stand out. You aim down the sights, pop in and out of cover, and generally take out wave after...

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....

Homefront (PC) Review

 

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.

Hype is a funny thing. Over-hyping a game can lead to high expectations, which are all too often dashed once the final product is seen in the cold light of day. Then again, too little hype can also be damaging, putting a game at a severe disadvantage...

Homefront's story-driven element is a disappointment, but you'll still probably return for a repeat visit. The multiplayer on the other hand is a far more inviting prospect and will likely burn up a fair few hours, days, weeks and even months if you...
