    Right now my attitude towards Homefront is "approach with caution". If it turns out to be anything more than a generic FPS with a story deliberately written to attract attention and controversy, I'll consider it.

    Unless it reviews horribly I'll get it for sure.  I'm hoping they steer clear of making it anything close to CoD or BC2.

    I was going to get it, but after reading Joystiq's single player coverage I'm going to wait till I have a competent PC to play MP. Because I refuse to pay for xbox live anymore.

    If the demo hits the right notes for me, I might think about picking it up on a sale. The story and set-up seem really interesting, but everything else looks pretty mediocre.

    I read a little bit of the book adaptation in WH Smiths the other day there.
     
    The plot isn't all that special or anything - but I did like Frontlines multiplayer, despite its flaws and I'd say that I am going to keep a close eye on this one.

    I'm on the edge of deciding with this title.  
    It's developed by the guys who did *Frontlines: Fuel of War and has that Freedom Fighters feel to it. 
    (*Frontlines was a sweet multi player title a few years back that got swept under the rug by C.O.D. 4 and it's a shame because it was uber battlefield with control enabled little war bots and massive maps. This was well before Bad Company was released.)  
    So i'm kinda sold on it but i'm really worried how the single player will turn out and if there is any co-op in the campaign. 
    I just hope this isn't another case of an awesome game being labeled under "It's not Call of Duty" tagline.  
    Even though some people are already doing that.

    I cant tell what the point of saying this was... 
     
    I cant tell if you are trying to say the bad company is the same thing as frontlines except frontlines came first or what? 
     elaborate please.  it was always one of those games that i wanted to buy but just couldnt bring myself to do. I played it for like 20 mins at my friends house but i cant really get any grasp of what the game is or is trying to be.... ive read a lot about it though and honestly it kinda just sounds like they saw battlefield 2 and were like... "Hey Guys, We could do that and make it near future rather than present day!"

    i liked frontlines' campaign, so i am cautiously optimistic,  and  i will probably pre-order it.   if anyone wants to play we should make a list of names.

    i'm going to see with the reviews. I'd be buying this for multiplayer and even though it sounds kind of good for now, it could very easily be no fun since they are constantly rewarding players that are doing well (while at the same time tagging them as a threat)

    I could care less about multiplayer. However this game looks good and the story seems pretty intriguing so far so I don't see a reason not to get it. I pre-ordered already like a month ago.

    I'm kinda weirded out by this. This one has North Korea invading USA? Feels like milking and exploiting the "threat" of North Korea considering the recent developments with them. Yeah yeah i know, ironic considering there's tons of games about Vietnam, WW2 and Iraq.

    Being a huge fan of Freedom Fighters and Red Dawn I am highly awaiting reviews and coverage of this game. I have it pre-ordered but I'm going to wait for official word on if it's good or not.

    Cautiously optimistic would best describe my feelings. I thought pretty highly of Frontlines even with its  flaws.
     
    I am a fanatical Battlefield player, that having been said I am beginning to experience a little burnout. I am just looking for a fun change of pace with solid gameplay. 
    I don't need stellar graphics, a thousand unlocks/perks, or the ability to change the color of my underwear. 
     
    Yes, I preordered the xbox version.

    Maybe. Depending on review scores and community feedback, as well as timing.
     
    There are sooo many games and so little time. Also - I still very much enjoy BF:BC 2 & Vietnam. Between Crysis 2, Shift 2, Dragon Age 2 and god knows what else - I'm not likely to go and play Homefront, unless it's really really good. The BF3 Beta is about to kick-off sometime soon too (I guess). It's gonna be very hard to grab my attention away from it.
     
    Then again, some of these dudes did my favorite BF1942 mod (Desert Combat) and worked on BF2. So that's making me hopeful, that it's gonna be great.

    Probably, unless the consensus is that it is a bomb. Frontline was pretty good, but I never actually bought it. This game though has me pretty intrigued enough to say that I plan to pick it up.

    Depends on the multiplayer. But seeing as how it's being ported to PC instead of from PC, the MP will probably turn out like shit like most console shooters.
