PCGames.de - 84% - Im Homefront-Test haben wir die Widersacher so sehr gehasst, wie in keinem Spiel zuvor. Mit vielen verstörenden Szenen baut Kaos Studios ein ebenso abscheuliches wie atmosphärisch großartiges Feindbild auf, angesichts dessen wir keine Skrupel hatten, den Abzug zu betätigen. Nur schade, dass uns schon nach einem Nachmittag die als Pixelsoldaten getarnten Zielscheiben ausgingen - der Kampf um die Freiheit ist ebenso intensiv wie furchtbar kurz. Schade außerdem, dass die Technik nicht hundertprozentig rund läuft. Schade, dass das Ende nicht so toll ist. Schade, dass die zweite Spielhälfte etwas an Spannung verliert. Schade, dass Homefront nicht ganz der Überknaller geworden ist, den wir uns für das Studio gewünscht hatten. Unterm Strich bleibt jedoch trotzdem ein großartiges Spiel - allerdings mit ein paar Abzügen in der B-Note.
Xbox Addict - 93% - I offer an open invitation and request to THQ and KAOS....get on some DLC...NOW!!! You've created a detailed and emotionally charged game world...now you need to expand the experience by giving us more. It seems that your greatest strength may become a developers weakness....you've set the bar and like you have stated time and again; Home is where the heart WAR is!
Totally360 - 9/10 - Overall, Homefront is a fantastic game. It was one of my most anticipated titles for the first half of 2011 and it didn't disappoint. Kaos has created a great shooter and, hopefully, a great new franchise. For those who haven't done so you should also check out the Homefront novel. I finished reading it before playing the game for this review and it helped me understand some of the back story for the title. The novel covers the events before the game and it gives you the origin to the "Voice of Freedom" among other things. If you are a fan of the first person genre than Homefront should be in your collection. It is a breath of fresh air in a genre that tends to recycle the same old thing. In Homefront, home is indeed where the war is. Will you join the resistance?
PlanetXbox360 - 8.7/10 - If Homefront suffers from anything, it's occasional lulls in pacing. At one point, you're introduced to your Resistance headquarters, but instead of being able to dash right into the action, you have to walk around and talk to people. It's good to have narrative in a game, but not everyone will be in the mood to talk. Still, it adds to the game more than it detracts. Even if you think you've gotten your fill from first-person shooters (or you're saving some space on your shelf for next week's release of Crysis 2), Homefront deserves a spot in it. This is a gritty, brilliantly made shooter that will shake you up more than once, backed by a powerful story and the kind of action that you'd come to expect from a top-tier entry in the genre. Lock and load, soldier, you've got a country to save in THQ"s Homefront.
Destructoid - 5/10 - There are some games that feel like their multiplayer experience was tacked on, a simple matter of getting on the disc and the back of the box to sell "a few" extra copies. With Homefront, it feels like the opposite is true: we've wound up with a solid multiplayer experience, matched with a sloppy and under-developed campaign.If you're looking for the total package, Homefront doesn't even come close. Gamers wanting a fulfilling story-driven single-player campaign should take the next bus to Playing Half-Life 2 Again Town. But fans of competitive multiplayer should at least give Kaos' latest a look, even if it's unlikely to replace their shooter of choice.
CVG - 8.6/10 - If you're looking for a military-style shooter that offers something genuinely different; one with a smart narrative pull in an evocative world that borrows from the very best, you'll struggle to go wrong with Homefront. The campaign length is an obvious let-down, as is Kaos's refusal to let the player find their own way - but the quality of the multiplayer is a fine counterweight to both.
IGN - 7/10 - I liked Homefront a lot, and yet I acknowledge that the aspects of the game I like the most aren't the most important in determining whether the game is great or not. Homefront is certainly one of the most unique shooters I've ever played, driven by an ingenious and surprisingly well-fleshed out plot and a dark and dreary, realistic setting. But it also controls and feels like a typical shooter, looks like a game that's several years old, and most importantly, has an inexcusably brief campaign. Multiplayer is Homefront's redeeming quality, and those gamers out there who are like me and swoon for alternate/future history settings should certainly look into it. However, if what you're seeking is an upper-echelon shooter, keep looking, because Homefront isn't what you're searching for.
IncGamers - 6.4/10 - Homefront is a probably best described as 'competent'. While its attempts to tell its story in a new way fall flat, the gameplay (despite its predictability) is passable to the extent that it'll satisfy those still hungering for more of the Call of Duty formula. Just how long these clones can survive is anyone's guess but, given the fact that Homefront is THQ's most pre-ordered game of all time, it seems as though they're going to be around for a while yet.
