Well, from the MP demo of Crysis 2, Its a LOT like Call of Duty. Crysis 2 should be for the Single Player and I wouldn't get it before the promised DX11. I haven't played Homefront though, so my argument is one sided.

I played the MP demo, and yeah it was with the different classes and customization, but what shooter does not have that today, including homefront

Get Crysis 2... Homefront is a terrible console port that i uninstalled 30 minutes after playing... very disappointed in it.

Shout out to my fellow Floridian. I would go with crysis 2. I bought Homefront and the single player was 5 hours (was decent tho) and multi was lack luster. A few people cheating 2. I would say homefront is a 20 dollar game. Not 50+ Crysis 2 is great so far. Got pretty good review, not sure how long the campain is, but I am liking multi so far.

Crysis 2 is fun on MP, lots of choices when it comes to how you wana play. It is NOT like cod MP at all. Homefront MP = COD + BF2 mixed up.. but nothing too special.

I've never played the full Crysis 2 but I do own Homefront, its like a thrilling but short roller coaster that is ultimately disappointing. The campaign can be beaten in around 4hrs at the most and the multiplayer is decent but fails to stand out from BFBC2 or COD. From the demo of Crysis 2 and the reviews I have seen, skip Homefront. I even regret the purchase... wait till the price drops to 19.99 on steam (which I'm sure it will soon) and pay for the story and superior multilayer of Crysis now. BTW make a pole.
