An open-world waiting for you to conquer it, with varied types of areas offering varied types of gameplay. You don't even have to pay attention to the silly story! You just have to want to take over the map.
Loved the game, i don't know why people are giving so much hate but for me it was a perfect game, good graphics, awesome twisting story, a nice small open world. its like a mix up of dying light physics and freedom fighter mechanics. I really think you should give it a try.
I finished the game now, in 2019. And I just want to say that this is an amazing game! I don’t know how many bugs were in it at the time of its release, but now there are almost none. A couple of times I noticed graphic bugs that do not affect the gameplay. But what really annoyed me was the spawns of the enemies that were a little malfunctioning: they could appear out of nowhere, behind you, a few meters from you. Sometimes it really made it difficult to play. Also a bit poor optimization.
BUT! The game is amazing! It is rare to find at least a less tolerable plot in shooters. But here it's almost delightful. If you are a living person with feelings, you will experience both sadness and joy from the plot and events of the game.
I also want to note good level design: you can pass the quest silently, killing enemies with a crossbow or a knife (and some levels can be completed without killing at all), or you can rushing through the entire territory and shooting everyone in your path, the game gives you the opportunity to embody different ways of walkthrough.
I especially liked the DLCs. They narrate about the events after and before the revolution. Each consists of one quest, 100-150 minutes long (at the medium difficulty level). The last, and the best (IMHO), is Beyond the Walls. In it, you will go to look for the NATO envoy, who hid in a church in an abandoned village. The views and music are amazing! Probably because of this I fell in love with this DLC.
So I recommend everyone who likes shooters and a good story to play this game.

Despite its problems, Homefront: The Revolution isn't the disaster many would have anticipated, and it gets a lot right. If you're after a Far Cry game this year but don't want to throw sticks at mammoths, then it's worth checking out.
Walking around Philadelphia, you may stumble upon a place where some madman was conducting sadistic experiments of people, or an old man's house packed to the rafters with traps, and you realize that the developers of Homefront: The Revolution do have talent. Unfortunately, instead of an original game, they produced a ho-hum FPS that tries to please everyone but falls flat in execution.
Simply put, Homefront: The Revolution is outclassed in its bracket by every other big-budget game released this generation. And that’s without getting into how shockingly shit the PC version is...This game made me feel unwell, it bored me to tears, and it irritated the piss out of me. Also, it has co-op.
One of the MOST UNDERRATED games I have ever had the pleasure of playing. Yes, Homefront: The Revolution had a messy launch; Yes, there are performance issues; Yes, the AI is not the smartest; but after a year and a half of patches this is hands down one of my favorite games in my Library! Let me tell you why:
(PRO TIP: Do not play this game with the default HUD. It will absolutely change the way you experience this game. Here's my recommended settings: Turn Off Enemy Awareness Indicators, Objective Icons, and Minimap. This setup will force you to think on your feet so the game is not holding your hand from one objective to the next. Surprisingly, the game does a really good job of giving contextual (visual and audio) queues so that 99% of the time you do not need a big fat objective icon ruining the immersion of this beautiful game. Use your own eyes, ears, and instincts to find where your enemies are shooting you from or where your next objective is.)
1. Homefront is surreal. Dambuster Studios have made a masterpiece of atmosphere and environment that really feels like a dystopian totalitarian America. The game immediately throws you into the thick of it, outnumbered and outgunned. You really do feel like you are fighting a gruelling guerilla war against more powerful occupying force in the streets of Philadelphia. The red zones feel like a wasteland where the KPA are hunting down the remainder of the resistance. The yellow zones feel like oppressed neighborhoods where you could be recognized in an instant and highly vulnerable.
2. The graphics are downright gorgeous. CRYENGINE really shines in this title especially at night where the lighting effects from street lamps to pulsing siren lights really take center stage. The lighting effects are so well done they even make playing the same area during the day feel completely different than during the night. Character models are sharp, believable, and the live cutscenes help cement the entire feeling of playing the lead role in a blockbuster film. That said, I did experience multiple crashes but I am running the game on an older AMD R9 390, Intel i5-2500K and 8GB of RAM. I still manage to run the game on High settings and I've found that reducing object detail to Medium and cranking up the fan on my GPU has all but eliminated my crashing issues.
3. The objectives are not always clear. Yes, this is a BIG plus in my book. Just like in real life YOU have to use your intuition to figure out how to solve problems. I remember the first building I tried to capture had a computer I needed to access, but the power to the building had been cut off. I kept staring at the damn minimap icon showing that I was in the right area, but I couldn't find a power source. Then I saw something in the environment and a light went off. "No, that couldn't possible work" I thought, but I tried it and it powered on the building making me feel like a genius because the game didn't tell me how to do it. It let me solve the problem myself (it felt like solving an intuitive point n click adventure game puzzle, which is mildly frustrating at first but then hugely rewarding when you find the answer).
4. The gameplay is not repetitive. I love open world games, but some of them can suffer from feeling repetitive and like you're just hunting down icons. Yes, Homefront has minimap icons and repeated objectives but they don't suffer from feeling overbearing or repetitive. In fact, the well designed environments ensures that there are different ways to complete a task at any given instance. Furthermore the story does a great job of progressing you forward and striking the right balance of open-world-do-whatever-you-want and I-got-to-get-back-to-my-main-objective feeling. Furthermore as you complete objectives the landscape changes both aesthetically and functionally. Liberating a neighborhood step by step will reflect in the attitude of the people and the KPA who go from domineering totalitarian control to fearing rioting on the streets.
BUY THIS GAME. I played the original Homefront and frankly, it ****, but what Dambusters have done with this IP is a hugely overlooked masterpiece.
Весь средний, проходной шутер с хорошей графикой, интересным сеттингом, атмосферными локациями, но гриндом и аванпостами в лучших традициях фаркраев. Лор мира раскрыт слабо, в предыдущей части его подавали через газетные вырезки, здесь даже этого нет, всё внимание уделено революции и пропаганде. Антураж урбанизма и революции передан прекрасно, визуал даже сейчас смотрится хорошо (особенно анимации), музыка классная, но... геймплей невыразительный какой-то. Нет какой-то своей изюминки, все элементы уже видели ранее в тех же фар краях. Да и история не блещет оригинальностью, и когла происходит очередной вотэтоповорот, ты не удивляешься, а лишь пожимаешь плечами, слишком очевидны некоторые моменты. При этом изза идиотского решения в некоторых миссиях обязывать заполнять шкалу революции в данной локации на 100% прохождение затягивается, что утомляет.
Игру не то чтобы советую, её можно смело скипнуть, хотя и негативных эмоций она не оставляет, просто проходняк.
I like this game, sadly I cannot sey it's amazing but I do like it, and I like it in exist because it is a miracle when you look at the development history , But something I can wholeheartedly raise the game for is how they How the weapons work and how they feel too shoot my personal favourite was the shotgun because it's one of those games when a shotgun is actually usable from long distance ,
This game is below average. It's not very well made at all. First, it's very glitchy on PC and from I've heard other platforms as well. Bugs like NPCs just running into walls, random crashes, and major frame rate dips. The story isn't very good either. It just feels like a worse far cry. It does have good aspects like the weapons being pretty fun and I LOVE the premise. It had a good direction for the story, but in the end, it wasn't well executed. I would not recommend especially on consoles.
SummaryComing to Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac and Linux in 2015, Homefront: The Revolution throws players into a near future dystopia.
