I recently borrowed THQs Homefront from a mate and thought i should get around to playing it. I had heard things that its not great and that the campaign is short but having just finished it I can say oh... my... god!
Disappointed is not even close.
The story goes literally nowhere and by the time it is getting remotely interesting the credits roll. I already heard that they are prepping Homefront 2 so i can see this being a saga like Modern Warfare (or trying to be) but i can honestly say that this campaign makes MW3 look like an epic in comparison and i don't think any kind of "first part of a series" is any kind of justification for just how short it really is.
I also have major beef with the amount of cheevos you get for going through the game. I have ended up with 160 gamerscore from it which i wish i could wipe from my profile. 10 pts per play through is rubbish. Ok another 10 for going through on hardest but i didn't enjoy it enough to do that. As for not dying... no thanks. Also it has a significent amount of multiplayer cheevos which is a whole kettle of fish i want to discuss another time.
Anyway i just needed to rant there for a minute, i am now calm. Anyone else have any thoughts on this?
All i can say is thank god for Saints Row :-)
