GeekActually.com Review: Homefront

Stubby writes:
What is it with war games? Why do they sell like mad and build up hype with minimal advertising? It kind of sickens me that an average war game’s release will completely over shadow a decent one’s. Most of these war games are short on substance and tend to end within a few hours, yet everyone runs out and grabs them and seems to lie about how good the game is to justify to themselves why they bought into it. So here’s a run down of the latest bit of drivel, Homefront. (Homefront, PS3, Xbox) -

I rather enjoyed that review. No punches pulled for once.

I always enjoy Stubby's reviews. He says it like he sees it.

"Homefront clocks in at 2 hours for a single player campaign".

That's a blatant lie though. No matter how good you are it's 5-6 hours.

"Then there’s the online multiplayer mode which is not too shabby but it won’t kick you in the groin for jumping back to Call Of Duty after a week"

If you like COD you will probably always be playing COD, but if you prefer the online of games like BF BC 2 you'll most likely pick Homefront over COD.

Definitely no less than 4-5 hours for the campaign, I agree. I do find the MP to be the shining star in the game (and the only "shining" anything really),but I'd much rather play COD or BFBC2 (I'm a big fan of both of those games) online, than play Homefront. I think COD and BFBC2 have much more solid gameplay. Also, I just can't get past the horribly ugly graphics. When I first popped this game in, I actually double checked my console and TV output settings... sure enough they were both set to 1080p, but you'd never know it. Environments, charachter models...everything is full of jaggies and bland textures full of notable polygons.
