Home is Where the
The year is 2027, and the world as we know it is unraveling after fifteen years of economic meltdown and widespread global conflict over dwindling natural resources. A once proud America has fallen, her infrastructure shattered and military in disarray. To make matters worse, 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.

I was drawn to the game because of its theme of fighting for freedom. There is a bit of this, but I guess even the "shocking" scenes didn't seem all that shocking in today's jaded era. I liked the overall story and some of the realities of fighting a guerilla-style war: citizens who just want to get along; others who take advantage of the war for their own benefit; screw-ups that happen... I wish there was more development of these elements. I didn't feel much of anything for the characters. Even at the end of MOH, I felt a bit when the wounded soldier died. Not so much here. Pity.
The graphics: the backgrounds seemed detailed enough to me, overall, but were certainly stylistically different than other such recent games. Sometimes the character animation seemed lacking: feet that didn't really "touch" the ground, odd ticks, etc. Too often the characters seemed pasted in rather than integral to the background. (Cf to Battlefield 3's latest videos for the opposite effect.)
There were parts of the game I enjoyed quite a bit. Other parts had me yelling at the TV in frustration.Read more ›
So my review is on the single player game. Like others, I was unhappy with the cheapo looking graphics. I dont' mind a script or storyline, but constantly FOLLOWING lead characters is just crap. On and on and on. Follow here, then over here. No thinking. No strategy. Your teamates are useless against the enemy. The AI are static.
The premise is/was intriguing but they just couldn't pull it off. They could have done so much more with the Red Dawn premise. who can you trust? If you kill occupiers, you would draw the rath of the enemy, so stealth and hiding amongst the regular population would be good missions, BUT someone , somewhere made the decision to dumb this down so a 13 year old kid will just want to shoot this and then that. Weapons are the same that are in every other game except ammo is limited.
How about having to cache your ammo and then hide it from the occupiers? How about characters that are engaging? I didn't even make it to the end of the misssions. I played 4 hours worth and gave up. Could have been a great game, but the designers just punted. Maybe they put all their efforts into MP, but whY? There are plenty of MP games to play and they are all the same. It's the premise and the single player missions that carve out the niche.
Pros: Story is interesting.
Cons: Where's the game? There is no single player.....a whopping 6 levels. It took all of 2 hours to beat it. There are no multiplayer maps(ok, very few). Multiplayer games are limited....there are 2! deathmatch and groundwar/domination types.
....Seems like they just slapped the game together and put it on the shelf. Honestly, I would pay $19.99 for the game, and not much more. Too late, they already tricked me into paying $60 and tax.
The game is a rudimentary first-person shooter.
1) There is no AI. Enemy soldiers move to pre-determined positions and engage in a shoot/cover cycle. Nothing you do changes the position or action of the enemy animations. You can (and I have) position your character in a covered location during a firefight and walk away from the game. When you return, all the characters will be in the same positions, performing the same action cycles. The game is static.
2) The environments are small. Some of them look big, but your character will only travel within predetermined limits. There is only one way through most environments, designed to steer you to the enemy soldiers so that you can engage them.
3) Gamep lay consists of moving your viewpoint camera through the environment, positioning the camera so that your aiming point overlaps an enemy animation, and squeezing a button. It's that simple, which isvery disappointing.
