Homefront is a game that belongs to the popular genre of first-person shooters. The game was developed by KAOS Studios, the creators of well received Frontlines: Fuel of War. The game is stylized as a modern war movie supplemented with advanced multiplayer mode.
The story of Homefront was created by the American screenwriter John Milius (the creator of screenplay for Apocalypse Now). It takes place in year 2027 and tells about the events that occurred ten years after the economical crisis of United States. In the game the player assumes the role of a member of American resistance that fights the occupant, the forces of North Korea. Three companions join the player during the battles and they help him in combat – Hooper, Connor and Rianna. However, it is worth mentioning that player has no impact on their behavior. In addition to that, sometimes resistance groups and even the America army join the battles.
Homefront for PC, PS3 and X360 not only offers singleplayer campaign, but an expanded multiplayer mode with dedicated servers support as well.
Animated scenes in which the player observes the events occurring on the screen from first-person perspective often cut-in the gameplay. During the game one can use various weapons – from regular M16 rifles to futuristic shotguns and sniper rifles. One will also have an opportunity to fly a helicopter and assume the role of a gunner in a Humvee vehicle. From time to time one can control an RC vehicle named Goliath which is very effective against infantry and enemy vehicles. Interesting depiction of occupied America is worth mentioning – the game doesn’t lack brutal and controversial scenes such as bloody executions or showings of mass graves.
