Multiplayer Gamer (360)


Homefront has been released on PS3 and been provided for us to preview/review by the publisher.

Believe it or not we are still playing it. Here are some extracts of what we made of it in chronological order:

"Homefront 360 but pushes the scope of a first person shooter to its limits. Although wanting to deliver something more grownup, but this dalliance is soon submerged as its high impact pace and inventive gameplay sets the real tone..."

Homefront PS3 Release

11/10/2010 10:30

Homefront doesn't impress until you see it first hand. While the rhetoric is as expected, there are moments of visual clarity here that feel both substantial and interesting.

Homefront takes us to 2027 and a world in a spiral of decay after fifteen years of economic meltdown. America is now a fallen superpower trying to resist the Greater Korean Republic.

A somewhat derivative wish list of post apocalyptic futures, but Homefront promises to offer game play that bucks all this. Their focus on character and plot is hoping to create something poignant and engaging.

Interwoven throughout are guerrilla tactics, weaponry, vehicles and drone technology that offer a variety of ways to solve each mission. The singleplayer leads nicely into the online multiplayer as infantry, tanks, helicopters and more of those combat drones do battle across huge battlefields.

Homefront will be released early 2011 on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC.

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.
