NextGN: Homefront Review - "You Sons Of Bitches!"

The story is too old to be commented.

Mediocre SP, but the MP more than makes up for it imo. It's like two different games.

SolidDuck2500d ago

I can't comment on the SP, cause I only by fps's for the MP. But please listen when I say the MP is not good. For two reasons, one is there are only two modes. Team deathwatch and a domination mode, that's it. U can play both these modes with battle commander, but it's still the same two modes, and all BC does is basically if u get a nice killstreak going it makes u worth more points to kill. And reason 2. Comparing this game to the best fps's out, like COD, battlefield, killzone, and halo is laughable, cause it's missing about 3 layers of polish. Everything is stiff and ugly. Sorry homefront missed the mark for me, really reminded me of a last gen game.

what version are you playing? it looks ok on pc. not amazing but certainly not bad looking.

Have you read the interviews? There are basically only 2 modes because it's the launch title, and cluttering it up with dozens of game modes with a possibly small user base dilutes the community. It's a smart move all companies make. If CoD never had 10+ million players I doubt more then a few of their gameplay modes would be touched.

Battlefield and Homefront capture what made team games so fun in the past: working together to achieve a goal, not bragging about how many kills you got despite the fact your team lost.

I'm not crazy about Homefront but I do like the MP. I've played COD's, and BC I think the scoring system and for Homefront is the best. No matter what you do to help your team your rewarded properly for it. Blow up a tank, droid, chopper it's worth it. 08/10

Homefronts pre-game lobbys are fucked, atleast it is on the PS3 anyways. I don't think I have ever been able to enter a game through the lobby, so far I have only been able get into on going games.

THQ needs to fix this before they lose the few people that play this game. And if I am wrong and there is more then a few people playing , then why don't the pre-game lobbys ever fill up?

Idk why some pre-games lobby don't fill up but I just back out and re-enter and I usually get put in a full game (as opposed to sitting in a lobby with 5 other people PS3 version)

JackBNimble2500d ago

That's what I do also, it seems it's the only way to get into a game.
I am just saying that the pre-game lobbys are broken, atleast that's the way it appears to me (PS3).
