Man they own the Timesplitters IP but make this instead? SMH
I really don't understand this. They can make a shooter. Why go for a universally panned franchise, with a single mediocre (or terrible depending on whom you ask) game while having the Timesplitters name, a franchise with three universally acclaimed games and at least a small dedicated fanbase?

Homefront was not a good game, but I liked the general premise of it. It has some potential. I'd give this a shot if it was well reviewed.

That's... hmm. I guess no-one else would have bought it...
Well, when THQ went belly up they already had contracted Crytek to bring back/reimagine the franchise after Kaos studios went under, and they had been working on it for awhile. Crytek didn't want to bin the work and I guess saw potential in what they'd created, so they just went and bought the franchise, rather than overhaul what they'd done as a new game. This began as THQ trying to make something of the IP.

At least the Free Radical guys get to do a shooter. And hey, Homefront had potential, maybe without THQ to fuck things up this one can live up to it?

Oh my god, that boxart :lol

I'm definitely interested though - want to see what Crytek does with the IP.

Homefront was horrible. It was basically a re-skinned Call of Duty. The original devs of the game were practically COD-groupies. The controls were crap, frame rate was crap, gunplay was crap, audio for the guns didn't match when you fired the weapon and stopped firing...i.e., after letting go of the trigger the gun still had about .7 seconds of firing sound.

That's one helluva generic and boring subtitle on one helluva boring boxart.

They really din't have more creativity than jus tputting a guy on the front of the cover holding a gun?

Do you usually have fun with boxes?
The reversible art on UMVC3 is fun, and there are quite a few collectors edition box is fun to open.

By bored, though, I mean that I feel really uninterested. Boring looking box art, the title HOMEFRONT and Crytek. Not feelin it.
