In an industry that seems to release a “first person shooter” video game at least every other week, can Homefront offer anything different or better?
Different? sure. Better? nope.
Set in a near-future, whereby the military of Korea has invaded the USA, after several years of diplomatic tensions and incidents, you have to help turn the tide of war with a desperate last man stand battle staged in San Francisco.
Written by Hollywood director/writer/producer John Milius, the story has a great focus and narrative purpose, however the game rarely raises itself above anything previously played before.
I enjoyed Homefront, but there is little motivation to replay the game and if I would more likely recommend someone to rent the game over the weekend, play it through, than purchase it.
score: 7 out of 10.
