Game-A-Week: Homefront

Title: Homefront

The Gist: The year is 2027 and a chain of events has led to Korea’s two halves reuniting as the Greater Korean Republic that goes on to invade America. You take on the role of a resistance fighter and use guerrilla warfare in order to take back your homeland.

Pros: The story for this game goes a step beyond the typical baddies invade/protect home scenario. Penned by the author of Red Dawn and Apocalypse Now the story unfolds as you deal with escalating combat situations and really makes you feel like you’re a part of that story. There’s a large range of weaponry to pick from, occasionally you’ll get the option to pick between sniper rifles/rifles and light machine guns but you’ll often be dependant on picking up enemy weapons and munitions in order to survive which gives the game a strong sense of realism.

Wolverines!

Been away some of this week and had little chance to game other than a few hours of Pokemon Platinum on my 3DS during the journey. That said I’ve been trying to play through the campaign of Steel Storm (co-op) since I’ve been back so I can give it a more comprehensive review. Unfortunately I may have  encountered a bug where our vehicle dies and refuses to spawn, was fine the first time as it only happened to me; my girlfriend was able to finish off the level for us. The second time it happened to both of us and we were unable to finish off a boss fight. Would have been fine but we currently have no idea which level that boss fight was on >.< so we’re going to load up the game tomorrow and hopefully finish it off. I will say that the second episode of the game feels a lot better than the first; added weapons, giant bosses to fight and more enemies!

Going to be grabbing some food and then starting a new Game-A-Week which will be an hour of the game Homefront. Picked this up incredibly cheap recently and been dying to test out the single player campaign as it’s written by the writer/director of Red Dawn. Until then I’ll leave you with a picture of the boss from Steel Storm I was fighting; twas huge and entered the level via an elevator! ^.^
