From the Manufacturer

A once proud America has fallen, her infrastructure shattered and military in disarray. Crippled by a devastating EMP strike, the USA is powerless to resist the ever expanding occupation of a savage, nuclear armed Greater Korean Republic.

Abandoned by her former allies, the United States is a bleak landscape of walled towns and abandoned suburbs. This is a police state where high school stadiums have become detention centers, and shopping malls shelter armored attack vehicles. A once-free people are now prisoners… or collaborators… or revolutionaries.

Join the Resistance, stand united and fight for freedom against an overwhelming military force in Homefront’s gripping single player campaign penned by John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Red Dawn). Stand alongside a cast of memorable characters as an emotional plot unfolds in this terrifyingly plausible near-future world. Experience visceral, cinematic first-person shooter action as you fight your way across Occupied USA using guerrilla tactics, and commandeer military vehicles and advanced drone technology to defeat the enemy.

Multiplayer brings epic warfare to the online arena as infantry, tanks, attack helicopters and combat drones battle across huge, open battlefields. A rich feature set offering layers of tactical depth combined with a game-changing innovation in the multiplayer space will set a new benchmark in online warfare.

  • Discover a terrifyingly plausible near-future world - the familiar has become alien in this nightmare vision of Occupied USA
  • Fight for a cause - join a cast of memorable characters as your resistance cell wages a guerrilla war against overwhelming military odds in the name of Freedom
  • Witness the human cost of war - a gripping story from the pen of John Milius is told through immersive, interactive 1st person cut scenes
  • Experience explosive FPS gameplay - battle through a dynamic mix of infantry and vehicle combat in a gripping single player campaign boasting intense, memorable set piece
  • Take the battle online - experience large scale multiplayer action like never before in epic infantry and vehicle warfare

    2.0 out of 5 stars Great premise, unfortunately misses it's mark March 15, 2011
    Platform for Display:PC
    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
    A little about my gaming experience, i've been playing PC FPS games since DOOM including Counter-Strike, all the PC Call of Duty games, all the PC Battlefield games, and so many more. I would consider myself a fair reviewer, I even found the 2010 Medal of Honor to have its redeeming qualities despite most others disliking it.

    Prior to this games release I saw some promo material such as videos and the interactive website, which were masterfully done, to set the stage for what should have been a great game with an interesting story. Unfortunately, this was not the case.

    First off, the graphics seem below par for the genre but are not horrible. The animation seems worse off though, as the way characters movement seem jerky in a way that is obnoxious and an eyesore.

    Single-Player:
    The game was noticeably short, clocking in at around 5 hours. The characters, environment, and story was surprisingly generic and the ending was an abrupt one that brought no closure. This was done on Normal difficulty by an experienced FPS player, so your mileage my vary. This was by no means an attempt at clearing it in a short time either, this included me dying at several places and reading several of the in-game history documents scattered around. While single-player campaign was surprisingly uninteresting given the great story they had to work with, it wasn't terrible. Even though the majority of it was bland it still had some fun moments.

    Multi-Player:
    This is the mode that I value the most in any FPS I buy as it is ultimately what I spend the most time playing. Homefront's take on multi-player has it's unique elements, such as aquiring Battle Points (BP) from doing actions such as killing an enemy or capturing an objective.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Multiplayer is where the fun is March 15, 2011
    Platform for Display:PC
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    {{Note: This review might not follow smoothly in terms of paragraph, world choice or language in general. I plan to make it up by including some facts that hopefully will help you.}}

    The developer of this game Kaos Studios was formed in 2006 by THQ for sole purpose of creating FPS games. Kaos launched it's first game Frontlines: Fuel of War in 2008. It was an average game. Now 3 years later Kaos has released Homefront, which is in some sense similar to Frontlines...drones, emps, global crisis etc. If you liked Frontlines, you most likely won't be disappointed by Homefront. The only downside over Frontlines is possibly the fact that they lowered maximum pc player number from 64 to 32. Anyway getting to Homefront now...

    SINGLEPLAYER:
    There's been a lot of hype about the single player campaign. It is written by John Milius, co-writer of Apocalypse Now (Three-Disc Full Disclosure Edition) (Apocalypse Now / Apocalypse Now Redux / Hearts of Darkness) [Blu-ray] (1979). If you're into storylines, then you'll most likely love it. There's enough dialogs in the game, the characters are uniquely build. If you're into shooting, then there's some good shooting for you.

    The downside is --
    (1) A typical gamer would be done with the missions in ~4 hours. If you're planning on buying Homefront ONLY for singleplayer mission, then it's not worth $50.
    (2) You're continuously being told what to do which includes following your teammates till the end. I personally don't mind that but I figure there are people who prefer to do things there own way.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment April 15, 2011
    Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    I am not a fanatic gamer, just an older guy (58) who enjoys a little escapist entertainment! This game will give you a lot of chances to shoot the bad guys and wreak havoc on the world. If you're looking for the most difficult game in the world then this isn't for you! The graphics are good with a lot of action in every scenario. I enjoy it and it makes for a great companion for my other modern FPS's.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great Story March 19, 2011
    By Wilson
    Platform for Display:PC Download
    I purchased Homefront for the single player (SP) which is an unusual purchase for me. I was just really drawn in by the premise for the story. In my opinion, the SP portion of the game lived up to the teaser videos which were released over the past few months. Some of the visuals in the game were chilling and this was what I was looking for in the Homefront story even though I think they could have done more. I finished the game on the hardest difficulty in about 6-7 hours for my first and only play through although some people are mentioning 3-4 hours on normal difficulty (Easy, Normal, Veteran, Guerrilla).

    The SP is very linear which can bother some people. Personally I prefer a well done story over game where you spend time wandering aimlessly or driving though checkpoints multiple times. The voice acting isn't great and some of the sound is a little weak, however it didn't bother me much. Sometimes the checkpoints save in weird places so that you have to listen to the same dialogue multiple times. In general, I would say that many of the weak points of the Homefront SP also apply to the CoD series (except CoD has more polish).

    I didn't play the multiplayer (MP) very much. the main gametype is like a very small Battlefield Conquest map or a large CoD Domination map. The maps are big enough to allow vehicles but small enough that you're alwasy near the action. I thought the vehicles and drones handled well and were fairly well balanced. My main gripe with the MP is that the guns have a high rate of fire and are very accurate. There also doesn't seem to be much damage falloff. Therefore, enemies die very quickly, making the game very similar to "hardcore" gametypes where players have reduced health and die in just a handful of shots. I don't like hardcore gametypes. If the weapons were rebalanced, I would definitely give the MP another run.
