The video game, that is.

 
quote
The year is 2027. 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. 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.




Opinions? Is it worthy?

I was really excited about it, the story looks amazing and it seems to have gotten rave reviews for it, but then I read that the gameplay and final polish of the game was extremely outdated, and I just couldn't justify $50 on it. I also read that the campaign is extremely short.

Anyone know if the multiplayer is any good?

Homefront. Interesting name.

Sounds like a term WestPac widows would use in code talk.

I've read a review that says the gameplay is good, but not great, but the multiplayer is really good. Graphics are average/good, but nothing to write home about. I'm mainly intrigued by the story.

All the reviews I read about it were giving it a middle of the road score. Like a 5 or 6 out of ten. The story looked great too. Same with Metro 2033. Looked great, but mediocre reviews have kept me away.

You can play through the story line in about 4hrs.
Online is difficult, The spawn does not change so it involves heavy spawn camping.
Not worth the money IMO, wait for it to become cheaper. Played on PC.

It was a let down. Another generic COD type game with a slightly different storyline. =/

Edit to add: If you use gamefly like I do, it's worth at least renting. I wouldn't outright buy it though.
