More talk about questionable videogames – Homefront Edition

Written by Musashi on . Posted in Video Games

While not the most stellar gaming experience I’ve ever had, it’s competent at most of the stuff that matters – except for all the time you spend waiting for other people to open doors so you can proceed. That stuff is lame beyond belief. It’s too bad all the drama behind the scenes and closure of Kaos detracted from what is otherwise a decent if uninspired shooter.

Editor In Chief at Geeky & Genki
Alex was born and raised in the seething metropolis of Cincinnati, Ohio. Raised on a steady diet of samurai films and punk rock, Musashi wandered from college-major to college-major before finally settling on graphic design / commercial illustration – hoping to secure a toe-hold in the comic book industry. While that turned out to be an ill-conceived plan, it did give him time to start his first website – Thick’n'Fudgy – which was every bit as juvenile as it sounds. Destroy-All-Monsters.com was founded in 2001, was later re-dubbed Yellow-Menace.com, and finally became GeekyAndGenki.com in 2012. Musashi still lives in Southwestern, Ohio with his wife, four kids, three goldfish, and a pair of dead crabs.

    I remember reading about the storyline when it came out. I don't think I could suspend my disbelief enough to play it. If they wanted a Red Dawn game, they should have just made Red Dawn.

    Strangely, aren't the bad guys in the new Red Dawn movie North Korean?

    This is very much the same idea as the new Red Dawn. The game does a decent job of selling it – it's still ludicrous, but it doesn't feel ludicrous while you're popping domes.
