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.

If anyone's familiar with Frontlines- Fuel of War (which was an excellent FPS), then you should feel right at home. Homefront cashes in on the possibility of war in America, except this time you're fighting against Koreans whereas, Frontlines, you fought against the Russians.
The theme itself is highly comparable to FFOW, but in all honesty, Homefront doesn't accomplish the same "gritty" war atmosphere the way FFOW did.
The story's quite forgettable, however, some events will happen which are included to give this game a "moral factor. The very beginning of the game is epic and I must say that some parts were particularly brutal to say the least. Definitely reminiscent of FFOW, but that's where the similarities end.
Onto the gripes-
Graphics- In some levels the graphics seemed better than others, but to be honest, Homefront doesn't hold a candle to most FPS's. This is not to say the graphics are bad; because they aren't. But the little things which got on my nerves such as- Washed out colors, texture pop in and dull textures are not what I'd expect from a THQ game. Especially considering the vast library of games produced by THQ with good graphics.
With that said, Homefront has it's moments but in comparison to Battlefield, Medal of Honor or even COD (the series I'm absolutely tired of playing), it doesn't stand a chance the least.
Weapons- I wasn't blown away by any of the weapons besides the Shotgun, the "Goliath" and the "Rocket Launcher". Other than that, there are too many assault rifle variations for my taste. Some that have scopes, some with red dot sights or with "flashy" COD style lenses. You're given two types of handguns from what I saw and one type of Shotgun. But to be fair, there are a lot of different guns.
Melee- I like a little melee in all my games. If I ever played a "pure shooter", I'd drop the controller altogether. With that being said, Homefront gives you a single melee move which is the same as COD, that being a quick knife stab. I wasn't particularly fond of this move being that it looks exactly like Call of Duty's melee.
Story- The Resistance versus the Koreans in America. This was a decent concept and during some of the campaign it's pulled off nicely. However, I felt the story wasn't given enough of anything other than the feeling of being a rebel to free America. Your character isn't even given a decent background story other than him being a "pilot". There are certain points in which some characters display feelings for certain events (no spoiling), but again, not enough.
My overall feeling of Homefront's story would be that it was loaded with potential and could've been a lot more.
With that said, I'd still recommend this game. The gameplay's innovative, the graphics are decent, and for it's current price, you couldn't go wrong. I didn't bother with multiplayer being that I'm not a fan of it, but the campaign was pretty good.
Graphically, the game leaves a lot to be desired. However, I think people focus too much on graphics anymore. The environment is a little scripted, but it works out for the casual gamer (Any more than an hour or two of gaming per day is just a waste of life).
Normally, FPS all seem the same to me. The storyline is really all I go for (I can't stand multiplayer, too many children in dire need of a real-life a**-wooping), and boy did Homefront have a storyline. Written by the creator of "Red Dawn" and watered down for the sales market (Originally, the bad guy was going to be China, and you can still see it despite the Korean language, flags and propaganda). So much R&D was actually put into the story. I WANTED to play it. I WANTED to stop the occupation and take the country back. Games usually don't make me want to do anything like that. I was glued.
It's short. I won't lie. The story ends as if they ran out of money (btw, Kaos studios is defunct now, they did run out of money), and said "screw it. let's stop here."
But all in all, I love it. Definitely in the top 10 personal favorites, enough to warrant hanging the poster in the man-cave.
