Nice take. I understand exactly what you mean. But Modern Warfare Me Too is where the money is! Surely "missed opportunity" is cliche, but the occupation angle was definitely promising...

I haven't had a chance to read the review yet, but this line ensures I will:

"I stopped expecting First Person Shooters to be marathon slogs a long time ago, but I don’t think I’m ready to expect them to stop being good."

Of course, I'll probably discover a score of typos at the end of the sentence... such as:

"or ready for them to a handful or hours before completion."

I think you mean... to be a handful for hours... not sure?

Anyway, I am looking forward to reading the review.

Homefront was a wasted opportunity. I quite liked some scenes, and the almost post-apocalyptic crazy redneck encampment was interesting, but it really is far too short. I finished Modern Warfare 2 in about 12-15 hours, and considered it a little on the short side. I finished Homefront in under five hours.

Zipp, I think that line is meant to be "handful of hours".

Here are some others:

"You can thank this change of heart solely on Homefront" doesn't really work as a sentence.

"Homefront checks its subtly at the door" should be "Homefront checks its subtlety at the door".

Good review, EmP. Summed up the game pretty well to me.

From what I was able to see of the game from various streams I watched back when it came out, the thing that disappointed me the most is how the devs more or less ignored the Korean occupation angle, that hook of Homefront. It was like "Okay, they've seen the opening cutscene, that's good enough" kinda thing.

Thanks for the catches, all. I admit, I rushed this one out earlier than I wanted after I saw Sise's review hit the url tag of review 9999 and, dammit, I wanted 10000! Turns out some news story got it instead though. Blergh.


For us. For them. For you.
