Come for the story, stay for the multi-player. That's the way we're looking at Homefront, Kaos Studio's FPS that plays out the 'What if...?' scenario of an occupied United States of America.
Meh, ill probably rent HomeFront at sum point, its a game a dont really give a damn if i play or not, looks like a lesser BC2, im more interested to see how the new Operation FlashPoint comes along And of course........BattleField 3, the big daddy
Damn. 6 disagrees already?? Someone must really be lookin' forward to this thing. Looks pretty average.
Yeah, i just don't understand why this game is getting so much hype. It does nothing original, it will not be as good as battlefield, it won't even be as good as COD. Its a cheap knock off and looks very average
You can't prove one game is "better" than another... Some people seem to be completely incapable of not comparing one game to another. Even if it is a "knockoff", if it's a fun, balanced, well-maintained product, then the differences will strike a chord with gamers.
Graphics look stardard, campaign gameplay looks pretty boring to be honest, only thing i'd be interested in is the online, but i ain't even buying it day one for that as nothing with online works day 1 this gen. Bottom line i'll wait till its cheap, same with Bulletstorm.
I dont get the whole appeal over the story, sounds a lot like resistance to me, just swap the koreans for Chimera
Why because it features an invasion? Just swap Chimera for Germany and you've got World War 2
See even that, its all really similar.. sure the minor details are different but at the core of it you're just playing as a victim figting for your life just like in lots of other games
"Just swap Chimera for Germany and you've got World War 2" Isnt that the actual story from resistance, more or less.
No, that is NOT the story from resistance, its a bit deeper than that. Just like the Helghan in KZ are not really space Nazis, if anything probably the wronged party in that story.
@thief... you made me chuckle...you get bubbles for that. "Helghan in KZ are not really space Nazis, if anything probably the wronged party in that story."
And swap Helghast out for Nazis and you get WW2 in space. (actually halghast are fascist) But you get the idea.
Probably... It will butter me along till the next game comes along anyway.
Watching quite a lot of gameplay, and it seems pretty slow paced and the AI seems to fond standing next to exploding barrels. The story seems a little too "America... F**k yeah!" for me too. But still I havent written it off, but it has some serious FPS competition this year.
The targeted audience of this game is likely Americans. Since Americans are mostly familiar with the bland American architecture and cityscapes, the setting is justified. I think it is less of a "America F**k Yeah" and more of a "North Korea F**k You!"
Yep, america is still the victim.
still the victim? I find that comment odd. On one hand you may be trying to imply the recent games like COD:MW2 that had conflict on American Soil or maybe you are implying Americans somehow act like we are victims? Either way... invasion of the United States actually hasn't been done that much in games...and certainly never in reality when talking the real world. Sure there are tons of games that portray American / United States like factions getting invaded, etc... but only a handful of games have really gone down that path with effectivness. I for one am very much looking forward to this game.
looks average to me.
i'm keeping my eye on this one not sure wot 2 expect but one game that has blown me away is killzone 3 even though half the reviews have slated it i'm interested to see if homefront gets the same half assed reveiw treatment the killzone 3 has
Homefront is a mediocre CoD clone. In fact, I bet people with blind hatred for CoD will like this game because it's not CoD yet it has the same cookie cutter FPS style.
