Homefront: The Revolution
Top Critic Average
Homefront: The Revolution feels slapdash, and after the initial fun of learning its systems, drab repetition reveals obvious exploits.
Homefront: The Revolution boasts solid gameplay and impressive level design, but tonally it's a disaster.
Though its world has some great aesthetic devices and a cool concept, ultimately all of Homefront: The Revolution's elements feel repetitive, unpolished, or downright unnecessary. Over the length of its campaign it fails to deliver a satisfying - or even fully functional - shooter experience.
The co-op action can be fun, but the rest of the game is just as dull and miserable as life in occupied America is portrayed.
An interesting change of pace for a first person shooter that has some nice ideas and mechanics, but can't quite get everything to sing.
Homefront's few smart concepts are crushed under the weight of constant glitches and other problems
Despite its ambitious premise, Homefront's efforts to reclaim Philadelphia are sabotaged by technical issues, faulty mechanics, and predictable storytelling.
Homefront: The Revolution is doing little more than checking off boxes
Homefront may look pretty, but it's a monotonous and confused slog.
I could call the game bad for all its faults, but it doesn't even feel fair to call the game bad. It is a traditional game, featuring all the things typical games of its type feature. Glitches aside, there's little here that would convince me to tell you not to play it. I didn't enjoy most of my time with it, but I wasn't miserable either.
