A story that I eagerly anticipated to wade through was never actually realized. Without that, the multiplayer also meant that much less to me as well. And while the multiplayer can certainly have it's moments of fun, it's not something that hasn't been done before. While not all games need to be ground breaking or original, it helps to at least do something better than the competition. And honestly, I couldn't find one area where Homefront outpaces its competitors. It completely drops the ball in the area that it advertised itself to be different, the story. As a result, it fails to follow through on delivering the emotion and soul that it was supposedly built around.
