The Reds are coming! No I don’t mean the ruskies – I’m talking about the Korean People’s Army landing on American soils and Xbox 360, PS3 and PCs everywhere.
Written by John Milius, co-writer of Apocalypse Now and Red Dawn(special nod to both those titles cast throughout the game – GO WOLVERINES!!!), Homefront takes place in the not so distant future after the Koreas have united and amassed a powerful allied force with a full on Nuclear arsenal.
The plausibility of the events that take place in Homefront almost made me a little uneasy which is probably why I really enjoyed the story. Being deeply rooted in a more modern and “speculative future”, Homefront hits home in more than 1 way. More recently with the issues in Japan I found it eerie that one of the collectibles I found said “After the destruction of one its nuclear facilities by Korean special forces, Japan surrenders to the Greater Korean Republic”. Not exactly what’s going on but still creepy right?
