Homefront - is it worth the buy? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Home Front is that game that you wait for and expect so much and its

It's worth a play through. Just don't expect to get hooked.

The online is where the game is pretty fun.

It's just that they crammed it into 32 players and it's kinda laggy with everything going on at once. I would say put the money towards battlefield 3
I didn't see any real lag, but it is smooth.
I wish it had a destructive environment like BFBC2.
I believe the game has some potential for Homefront 2, if it's in the works.
Though I know the 360 hinders all they can cram into the game.

Single player is really short but its a good story and non stop action.

Worth renting if playing for SP

Worth buying if playing MP
Yeah, I bought it for the Multiplayer.
I had already read that the Singleplayer sucked.
I think it's worth it, as long as the servers stay up.

That's pretty dumb to tie a registration code to a console game, maybe they anticipated the trade ins and did it for the lulz and money.

Yeah, they sure did hype it up.
But the multiplayer isn't bad. I enjoy it, so does my siblings so it's all good.

Yeah, I guess it's because of the dedicated servers.

Bought it for Xbox AND PC. Beat the SP in 2 nights. Online gameplay is terrible, and shockingly similar to CoD. Waste of the $$. Hell, even the controls are the same. What's the point?

I got it for PC and really enjoyed it, single player only took 4 hours though on normal. But i am impressed by the multiplayer. Worth the £13 I payed.

the online is fun, but it can get a bit choppy
post #20 of 24
Single player is a horrid, dragging mess... Hurry up and wait... Hurry up and be forced to walk for 5minutes or wait at a door that you can't open.

The online was fun until last week. I don't know what they changed but ADS has become a major chore and double tapping on the semi-auto sniper rifle now has a .75s delay. To top it off the servers selection as of late is horrible. I keep getting put on JP and EU servers more and more, which being in the US makes the game for the most part unplayable.

Pass on this unless you get it cheap.
