About Homefront

The year is 2027. The world has suffered a decade-long energy crisis, and economies have crumbled. Reduced to a mere shadow of the super power it once was, the United States became the target of a North Korean takeover. American malls, suburbs and city streets are now battlegrounds as the civilian resistance fights for freedom. Featuring a compelling single player story crafted by John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Red Dawn), Homefront immerses gamers in an interactive and cinematic FPS experience where they will assume an infantry role or take command of a wide variety of aerial and ground vehicles. In addition to the single-player experience, Homefront will deliver a robust multiplayer experience. In a land stripped of freedom, the brave will fight for their home.

Summary

Homefront, with its gripping premise and well-orchestrated battles, is all about ambiance and emotion. This is a great starting point for a new series, and if Kaos Studios can fix some of the minor issues, Homefront could potentially topple its well-established competition.

We like

  • Highly emotional and exciting battles
  • Terrific depiction of a war-torn America
  • The multiplayer battle points system makes for epic competition

We dislike

  • The A.I. creates in-game frustration
  • Multiplayer could use additional modes
  • Graphics are fairly muted and quickly become bland

The Supreme Court recently upheld this right, voting in favor of the controversial Kansas-based Westboro church’s hateful picketing at soldiers’ funerals. President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush have been equated to Hitler, and folk singers like Bob Dylan have penned songs protesting both racism and McCarthyism...
