I Am Not A Gentleman. I Don't Even Know What A Gentleman Is

by Rainier on March 16, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Picked up Homefront last night and have been going through the single-player campaign. The story is good, the variety of missions and weapons keeps it interesting, and using the "Goliath" is literally a blast. Not quite sure about the length yet, which seems to be a major sticking point from what I have read, but so far so good. I had a chance to play the multiplayer a few weeks ago, so I'm looking forward to trying it out on the public servers once I'm done with the campaign.

Quite a few other games shipped to stores yesterday, so there should some be something for everybody to enjoy.
