Home is Where the Heart Is

The year is 2027, and the world as we know it is unraveling after fifteen years of economic meltdown and widespread global conflict over dwindling natural resources. A once proud America has fallen, her infrastructure shattered and military in disarray. To make matters worse, crippled by a devastating EMP strike, the USA is powerless to resist the ever expanding occupation of a savage, nuclear armed Greater Korean Republic. Abandoned by her former allies, the United States is a bleak landscape of walled towns and abandoned suburbs. This is a police state where high school stadiums have become detention centers, and shopping malls shelter armored attack vehicles. A once-free people are now prisoners... or collaborators... or revolutionaries.

Homefront Review: So Much More Than We Expected
I was really excited to do this Homefront review because even though I am a huge Call Of Duty fan and I still think that when it comes to FPSs it is the platinum standard from an overall gameplay perspective, but Homefront is no slouch. Call Of Duty is no longer leaps and bounds above its competition and the remaining gap is closing fast.
