Homefront is a first person shooter set in a future where a crumbling United States has been invaded by an expansionist Korea....

Developer: KAOS StudiosPublisher: THQPlatform: PC (Reviewed), XBox 360, PS3Price: $49.95Homefront’s setup is pretty interesting. Instead of relying on tried and true wars they build the story around a fictional future one and a bunch of what ifs. For...

The problem with gazing into a crystal ball and making bold predictions is the out-and-out risk. We did that with Homefront, pretty much calling it as a game of the year contender before it had even come out – we'd played a good wedge of the campaign,...

Homefront is very much the military shooter equivalent of a packet of liquorice allsorts - a very mixed bag. The single-player game present a gritty and engaging premise on one hand, but one that's dogged by issues and overly short. The multiplayer...

After playing Homefront I cannot help but feel bad for Kaos Studios (the developer) because you can tell a lot of love and work was put into it. The problem is that when you put all of that aside there is, sadly, almost nothing special about this...

Homefront can best be summed up by its opening (which is nice, because that means you don’t have to play much of the game). You’re kidnapped and tossed aboard a bus, at which point you get to witness the ugly carnage of Korea’s invasion right in...

Homefront’s ambitious storyline and graphical portrayal of military occupation are some of the stand-out features of the game and its major drawing cards. You don’t often encounter the US as the underdog, with this “under occupation” story offering a...

It is the year 2027 and the economically crippled USA has been invaded by Korea and the citizens are literally fighting for their lives.This battle-ravaged scene is the backdrop for new first person shooter Homefront from Kaos Studios.Players assume the...

It’s a task in itself when reviewing a military FPS not to draw inevitable comparisons with other such titles in the genre. There’s a vast shadow emanating from Activision HQ these days that first person shooters in particular find themselves cowering...

I really don't want to trash Homefront. Whenever a genuinely bad game comes around, the natural impulse for many writers is unchain their inner critic -- typically a once-annually event worthy of some note -- and tear the wretched thing to shreds....

War brings out the worst in us all. This valuable morsel of information from one of Homefront’s leading characters sets the tone for the latest shooter from developer Kaos Studios (Frontlines: Fuel of War). In the near (fictitious) future, a highly...

Homefront from Kaos Studios and THQ arrived at the office on Friday. It is now Saturday at 14:38 and I have finished the game on normal. It took just four hours and even then that was with me doing some minor exploring and collecting. The game does a...

Kaos Studios is a name familiar to a fair portion of the multiplayer FPS community -- the developer started off as Trauma Studios, creating the excellent Desert Combat mod based on Battlefield 1942. Developer DICE found it impressive enough to hire on...

Outside of its displays of life under Korean oppression, Homefront completely disregards the somber tone for combat born of the “Modern Warfare Guide to Shooting.” In deserted, war-torn, visually dense suburbs, you must gun down endless waves of Korean soldiers with...

Homefront houses an assortment of attention-grabbing treats - from stirringly evil antagonists to the fiery splendour of a phosphorous downpour; heartbreakingly childish reminders of your domiciliary surroundings to the bullet spray of Sentry...

By Game Chronicles Magazine on 88

Homefront is one of the most hyped games of the year; at least when it comes to press events and pre-release coverage, but where are all the ads? It’s been a few days since the game hit stores and I have yet to see a single commercial, and that’s a...

The opening scene of Red Dawn, in which Soviet paratroopers open fire on a classroom full of children, was devastating all on its own. In the initial spray of bullets, a young, unsuspecting boy is hit, and is left slumped over the broken window,...

The year is 2027. A unified Korea has risen to power under Kim Jong-un and annexed much of south-east Asia, including Japan. With the United States in disarray amid continued economic hardships and a new flu pandemic, the Greater Korean Republic...

I've been excited for Homefront for a long time. Ever since it was revealed at E3 2009, I've been cheerleading pretty hard for this game. With a story penned by none other than the man behind Red Dawn, Homefront offered a truly visceral take on a...
