HOMEFRONT???

I am picking this up today, as I have been waiting for awhile. I'm pretty excited I just hope it doesn't fail like Medal of Honor did.

GF sent it out yesterday. I'm always sceptical of new shooters but we'll see.

I played some of the campaign last night and it was very well thought out. The gameplay was really intense. great guns you can choose from but you run out of ammo really fast but you can pick up extra from dead Koreans. It's very addicting but just like other games I will more than likely beat this within the next day or so.

The multiplayer I had a few issues with. My friend and I would get in a lobby and whoever was hosting kept getting stuck at the loading screen so they need to patch that. Of course you will have issues when a game first comes out, especially if it's a shooter. Happens every time. BUT. when i played by myself it was really fun. The maps are pretty big. The gun choice is great and it gives you a huge variety of attachments for your gun. A BUNCH OF EM!!!!! I would say the multiplayer is a mix between Battlefield and Medal of Honor.

In conclusion, I think it's a great game. The campaign gets you emotionally involved and leaves you wanting more. When they fix the multiplayer it will be a hell of a lot better than playing black ops. If you want a game to hold you over untill battlefield 3 I would pick this up or wait for a game called Brink, which i believe is set for release in mid April but not really sure. Go to youtube and type in homefront multiplayer and you'll see some videos that people have posted of their experience. You can somewhat judge for yourself. Enjoy and if you do pick it up let me know!!!

oh yea, helicopters, a couple types of tanks, a humvee, and drone. You use your points you collect throughout a round and save up those points to purchase by pushing either up or down on the directional pad. it's a good way to earn a vehicle instead of some 10 year old always taking the vehicle and being stupid lol

YES!!!! The campaign is really really short. I think overall I beat it in about 4-5 hours. I was a little dissapointed with the ending as well. But I still had fun playing it. Just way too short. I would definitely rent this before purchase.

Played a little last night. Blkhwksix on xbox360.

Graphics is very good but I think Battlefield3 will be better, but I do like the graphics.

Servers definitly need work it takes to long to get into matched especilly on the Multiplayer with groups very hard to get the party in..

Sniper Rifle / Drone is awesome.. matter fact all weapons are very good.

Large maps with limit if you go outside map you only have a 5 sec to get back in or you will die.

Overall very good product.....

Graphics looks boring. I'm a PC player and this game is disappointing compared to BF3.

Thinking about getting it...I figured I'd give them maybe a month or so to fix the bugs people have been having and then I'd buy it.

I really wish I had listen to my friends and rented this instead of buying it. I'm not a big single player/campaign fan so I have not played it and probably won't.

As for the on line multiplayer, think I have about 25hrs in although if they include time spent sitting in the lobby, game play itself amounts to about 7 or 8 hrs, I kid you not. Like every game in the last couple of years, the connection issues have been a really big problem with this game, some nights to the point that after trying for 45 minutes to get into a game I just give up. Some of this had to do with lack of servers and a lot had to do with programming issues. Once you are in, you're not going to find anything new or cutting edge here. The only new concept is being able to buy what you would normally need kill streaks to obtain. Get enough kills or team support and earn the money needed to buy the air strike, tank, LAV, hummer, etc.The boards a pretty well laid out and spawning, well let just say I have had few experience where I spawn and died without being given the chance to defend myself. I'm still trying to figure out whether the hit detection is off or whether it just the lag causing some of the things I'm seeing. There seem to be object on the maps that are bigger then they appear. As an example,opponents standing behind vehicles partially under cover, you can see them, you just can't hit them. Normally, a clip from the M4 gets the job done in this game, but I have experienced cases where I have put every clip I have into an opponent, hit detection indicated on pretty much every shot and they either walk away or return one shot and I'm dead, most likely lag. I do have a pretty good connection, just tested at speedtest.net 45mbps down and 1 mbps up.

My recommendation is rent this cause I'm thinking you'll find yourself back playing Black Ops in a couple of weeks.
