Wow. You got that nice and early.

I'm curious as to how it is, because even though I don't post about it much, it is something I'm cautiously looking forward to.

The first Homefront -- although glitchy and mediocre -- had its moments, and I did enjoy myself through a lot of it. This one looked good when I saw early footage, so I'm hoping it will at least be decent fun.

I never played the original Homefront but I'm actually quite interested in this game. Has a major game ever been set in Philly? Looking forward to impressions.

I completely forgot about this. Interesting...

Same, it's coming out this month?! It's kind of a packed month, it's sandwiched right between Uncharted 4 and Overwatch. I haven't heard it mentioned at all on any podcasts, and haven't seen any ads for it either. Bigger bomba than Homefront 1?

There seems to be less buzz around the sequel than the original. I had no idea the game is out in the States next week.

There was no buzz around the original, it just had an absurdly expensive and overblown marketing campaign.

I really liked the oppressive atmosphere and visuals of the E3 demo. Hopefully it's good but I can't really afford this right now.

I don't think this game is gonna be great, unfortunately. About a 72 Metacritic I'll predict based on footage and critic impressions so far.

Didn't posted the impressions earlier as I Made the thread on mobile. Here are my early impressions after playing first 2 hours.

-The graphics are underwhelming. Its not bad technically but artistically it also looks bland.

-There are technical issues like screen tearing and fps drops. I am not sure if its fps drops or frame pacing issues but the game feels sluggish. Beside that the game crashed once and have other issues like items stucking in geometry etc. Please note that there maybe a day one patch. It wasn't up for me yet.

-Movement feels odd and shooting is not satisfying.

-AI is also not good.

-The world feels huge. You can see Farcry influences every where

-In the start the game does feel like guerilla warfare. You have limited resources and have weak weapons compared to enemy.


If you have any other questions feel free to ask

Thanks for the impressions but that sounds extremely disappointing.

First one was nothing special and extremely short. I honestly can't believe someone fronted money for a sequel.

I remember watching some marketing stream about a month ago, and switching it off after 10 minutes because it was frighteningly underwhelming.

Lol everything he said sounds extremely disappointing.

I didn't had much expectations. Its not very bad game but everything i very underwhelming. But i have just played it for 2 hours. And I played it after doom and overwatch beta.

there are some positives like oppressive atmosphere and feeling of fighting a guerilla warfare. Also for people who enjoy open worlds the world feels big.

Awhile ago Amazon had the super-deluxe edition (which came with an RC car) mistakenly priced at $12. (They cancelled the order)

Had it gone through, I think I still would've felt a little cheated out of my money.

Well that sounds thoroughly underwhelming, albeit not unexpected. They are insane releasing this the same month as Uncharted 4, Doom and Overwatch. This is going to bomb, badly.

So all in all a pretty standard 7/10 title?
Does it try to do anything new/interesting or is it just another shooter that you have played 100 times before?

The impressions I got from trailers were that it felt like Just Cause meets infamous SS ( or any other open world game where you clear regions to unlock new powers) is that accurate?

More like 5-6/10

Its Mostly Farcry plus metro with not so great shooting

From that angry joe video the graphics are pretty good on a technical level.

Pom on the brick walls, good lighting, PBR, what looks like PCSS

Gameplay looks shit though.
