An introduction to Homefront: The Revolution
The Homefront offers you with eight different districts to explore where you can have your missions. The whole area is divided into three zones that are green, yellow, and red. Green zone is one of the toughest to infiltrate as it has a sound presence of Korean army. The yellow zone is home to the most of civilians of America and hence is frequently patrolled so as to clear off any resistance in the area closer to their station. The red zone is home to most of rebels though the Korean army has a strong presence there, but still rebels operate there and the Korean army shoots at sight whoever is spotted there.
The environment is extremely stunning and visually aspiring and what makes Homefront brilliant is its standout graphics. The weapons system is also advanced and you can have desired modification to the weapon you have. The most interesting addition is the multiplayer mode where 4 players can form a resistance group and has a completely different storyline then the single player mode.
The Plot is where this game has some sort of loose ends. The story is completely different from the previous version. It states that the digital revolution started in North Korea alongside the Silicon River in Korea rather than Silicon Valley and due to which North Korea rose on the global scene. There is a Steve job like character Joe tae-see who leads this digital revolution in Korea. The years of conflicts result in America being in debt by North Korea. The American economy collapses and taking advantage of the situation North Korea take its control over America as a humanitarian step to save the country. This humanitarian step is soon discovered as the viscous Korean way to control America and exploit all its natural resources so as to repay the debt.
This strikes the revolution among the whole America which result in formation of several resistance cells and the lead character Ethan Brady is also a operative in of one of them were all his cell members are tortured to death and he is saved by the leader of revolution Walker. This starts Brady’s journey to become the resistance leader and make his country free again.
Homefront: The Revolution is just like its predecessors were their trailer looked promising and then the game failed miserably. The game has wonderful graphics, it is the loopholes in the story line that is the reason for its downfall. The initial stages are impressive, but then soon the game becomes boring and tedious and the poor mechanics further adds to the disappointment.
