Multiplayer Game Reviews

Homefront….Homefront.. Oh, where to begin. Should I mention how it feels rushed? Or how the story doesn’t really have a beginning, it just happens? You know, one day you wake up and there’s angry North Koreans killing your neighbors and they throw you on a bus. Then you, the undescribed, unexplained random guy they pull out of a house is somehow supposed to save the day by nearly being killed by the people that save you, but then you pick up a gun and you’re like Rambo. Sure, it doesn’t matter that at this point you probably have a concussion and couldn’t tell the right side of the rifle from the end of your own arm, you wield that thing like a pro.

Alright, maybe I’m being too harsh about the story. But I just didn’t like it. In fact, nobody I talked to actually liked the story. It seems like they spent entirely too much money hiring the guy to write the story and not nearly enough money on actually making sure he wrote a good one. Then again, I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised. This is the same guy who wrote Red Dawn and Apocalypse Now. Wait a minute…I should be surprised. Those movies were actually good.

Graphics are kinda bland.

Anyway, enough about that. The graphics on the whole aren’t that bad, but they’re not fantastic either. Nothing was really eye-popping. There’s a significant lack of environmental damage compared to other modern shooters. And the whole shanty-town environment that seems to have sprung up overnight just doesn’t make the game feel believable. There was less obvious squalor in Left 4 Dead 2, and that game is about a zombie infestation.

Multiplayer isn’t all that bad though. It’s pretty fun, on the level of a cross between Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops. But overall I was unimpressed with the game. I think a good part of that came from something seeming to be very lacking in the sound department. None of the noise really caught my attention, it just blended into the background. Overall, I’d call it a rental. Not bad for its multiplayer aspect, but not worth buying.




So so.
