Lowered Expectations 0

I don't normally purchase games day one, nevermind at full price.  However, I've had my eye on Homefront since I first heard about it - I've really wanted a game to explore the possibility of an invasion of the US.  I still would love to see Heartland be made, and Homefront sounded just up that alley.    What a letdown.  I told myself several times: calm down, this is Kaos, Frontlines was buggy and a similar disappointment, just let it go on sale on Steam.  But I didn't listen, and I was done 6 ...
