Homefront. A game about North Korea taking over America in the year 2027. When people hear about this game it is weird to talk about it because of what North Korea has been doing lately. This game makes you prepared. When I first popped this game in I couldn't be more excited to experience being a resistance fighter that is ready to take their homeland back from the people that shouldn't be there. When I started playing I felt like a soldier taking out these Koreans and I could feel the harshness that has happened because of the Koreans taking over.
The environments have this terribly sad detail to them that shows what they have done and what has happened to the people. So the environments look great, but they could have done a better job on character models and animations. But they are are definitely acceptable.
The Gameplay works perfectly for this kind of game. Aim and shoot, aim and shoot, use the awesome Goliath machine and then rinse and repeat. It works and there isn't much to it. They did a great job making a first person shooter.
The story really makes you feel like you are in this war. The characters get pissed at each other over things they don't agree. Tensions get high with Civilians and the resistance. It is all something you could see happening during a terrible time like this.
Now let us get to the Multiplayer. Now I know that everyone has been judging this game because of how Kaos and THQ haven't set up enough dedicated servers and everyone automatically assumes this game is bad. Well guess what? It isn't When you are actually playing a multiplayer game it is awesome. I haven't experienced any lag, I love the Battle points system because of how perfect it is implemented and that you can use YOUR own vehicle is even more awesome. The multiplayer in this game is a mix between Call of Duty and Battlefield. You got the perks and then you got the large scale team based mp. They did an outstanding job from what I have played and you just need to give it a chance once they get everything running smoothly. I mean come on. CoD Black Ops is still broken.
Overall Kaos has made a different kind of story telling game and it worked out well for them. It may be short (I beat in 4 hours) but I loved every second of it. Especially Chapter 4. You will understand why.
My hat goes off to them and I will be playing the MP for quite some time.
