Catastrophic events have brought the United States to its knees and enabled the Korean People's Army forces to impose a brutal military occupation. Trapped in this American nightmare, Philadelphia has become a police state, where surveillance drones and armored patrols keep her once-proud citizens at heel, crushing any dissent with totalitarian force.

    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.

    Flawed AI and quite a bit of repetitiveness can't deny the fact that Homefront: The Revolution is still a fun, thrilling game with lots of good moments in it. The awesome weapons arsenal and great atmosphere urges us to continue liberating the streets of Philadelphia.

    On paper The Revolution has been designed as an amazing sandbox with complex modifying weapon systems and a strong sense of guerrilla warfare. However, every element out there is unpolished and many of the ideas ultimately fail because of that.

    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.

    An acceptable game buried under glaring flaws, Homefront cannot justify its performance problems and numerous bugs despite its competent-but-generic open world.

    The years of changes of direction and publishers didn’t leave the shooter unscathed. The stealth mechanics are superficial, the AI comfortably dumb and even the visuals are not up to par. Which is even worse considering that you’ll encounter the occasional tense moment, where you feel what this revolution could have been.

    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.

Well that's nice but I am a PC Master Race kinda guy so I have not seen anything to bad yet, mind you i have only played in the first 2 zones, on the PC Version, AI Running into walls and, hovering texture meshes (an american flag floating in the middle of a warehouse), & Something that kinda bugs my eyes about this game is despite what the monitor is set at in windows the game seems to use a lower refresh rate. I am going to measure the fps and tweak for ~100 fps and game tick if i can get it to work (will post any fix or setting I find for it), for optimal viewing so that my eyes don't hurt and so that I don't get motion sick (I game on a 27" 144Hz Asus monitor (with Lightboost Blurbusters Hack) and like my fps to be around 120 Ideally but anywhere above 100 is comfortable.)That being said so far the setting is nice, the shooting mechanics are a little clunky, for ex: a 5.56 mm round has a lot of recoil in this game, and a 45. Cal SMG with a rifle stock has huge amounts of recoil, I can see maybe if it had no stock but it has one so... The character movement is decent don't like the screen wobble when running, Climbing. It is kinda like an urban Farcry 2, with a lot less driving (a Good Thing). the atmosphere is nice and the setting is well done. missions are okay, some of the side quests seem more important than the story missions for ex:
    "Find missing squad"

    Though the game isn't spectacular, it does contain come cool sandbox and mission-lead sequences. The idea of helping "liberate" certain areasThough the game isn't spectacular, it does contain come cool sandbox and mission-lead sequences. The idea of helping "liberate" certain areas of Philadelphia is cool and in a lot of ways the game borrows from the old "Mercenaries" Series (and that's a good thing). All in all, I think it's a solid game that some people will criticize too heavily. Expand

While I like the atmosphere and story of the game, it certainly has some issues. For me, the main issue is the AI which could be fixed in an upcoming patch. Another issue is the motorbike. It somehow is more difficult to drive than it should be. Maybe Deep Silver should take some cues from other games? So, this is definitely not in the same class as similar games like Division. Overall, the game has good potential, but it could have used another 6 months in development and testing... Expand

    This is NOT the game to play right after finishing Uncharted 4. I think it has potential, but I cannot recommend it in its current state.This is NOT the game to play right after finishing Uncharted 4. I think it has potential, but I cannot recommend it in its current state. The technical issues especially the framerate is what brings the score down for me. I think the open world aspect of the game is done well and the graphics are decent, but that framerate. I would say it averages about 22-25 FPS. I would wait for a patch to see if they can bring it up to 30 FPS. If they don't fix it in 3-4 weeks, I'm trading it in. Expand

    Boring and uninteresting continuation not of a bad first part. The open world dead and doesn't change from actions of the player in any way.Boring and uninteresting continuation not of a bad first part. The open world dead and doesn't change from actions of the player in any way. In general after the first part is a failure. And setting very cool, unique. Technical problems continually, beginning from the getting stuck opponents in textures to AI of opponents. Graphics hasn't changed since 2010 at all, it is a shame to release it in 2016. Expand
