Agreed. Game has lots of potential, and it had great sales. For that price they are guaranteed to make their money back and give it the treatment it deserved.

The problem for me is that after the first game the name has no value for me. If I saw a new Homefront trailer I would probably dismiss it because of the name alone despite who was making it. It is an obstacle that is going to be difficult to overcome.

KrystofKage1350d ago

I agree, but it's also been done. Killzone 2 and Red Dead Redemption are good examples.

Wasn't Homefront a very generic shooter or something?

IIC0mPLeXII1351d ago

You got the jist of it. Pretty much your garden variety shooter.

spicelicka1350d ago

Whyyy can't they just work on timesplitters instead!!?? they'd rather work on this generic military shooter bullcrap

brettyd1351d ago

The game itself was but the premise is good just failed execution.

It was one of the absolute worst games I've ever played.

That would be killzone 3 for me or haze.

Murad1350d ago

Dude, Killzone 3 was awesome. It had amazing graphics, sound and actually a very compelling story.

AKA COD without all the hype and advertisements

You're wrong it did get a lot of publicity before it came out with ads on Tv and articles all over the interweb. Homefront was intended to be a mixture of call of duty gun play with battlefield type maps however the public didn't buy into it too much after playing the beta.

Get paid millions by THQ to develop it. THQ go bankrupt and you buy that work for half a million. Yep that's a steal :)

Blank1350d ago
