I cant believe that they are charging 60$ for this game. Painfully short single-player, sort-of-fun multiplayer but CO-OP only (does it have deathmatch of any kind at all??) The obvious porting problems, no Jump??? What the hell is this, Mass Effect?????
No it's a $60 console game for juveniles released on PC because it doesn't take much effort to make the unreal tech game work on PC.

It keeps crashing for me during the same cutscene where your mother speaks after fighting the first battle with your brother and sister. 3 times in a row.

I will say it before others say, the devs don't care enough about the PC version. We wish they cared more but they don't.

Also games for windows live blows big time as usual.

Only 2 years of slap-on-the-wrist, after what MUST have cost them HUNDREDS of millions of dollars in lost sales?

That's what piracy does, right?

Back the truck up... How does stealing the source code and then not compiling nor being able to play the game from that source code, cost hundreds of millions of dollars in lost sales?

Yeah Homefront looks good. A COD clone. Time slows down for everyone except the player. The enemies just run in to be shot and your gun has no recoil. Looks like a great game. I am cringing. Must now every first person military shooter be a COD clone?

Well I guess there is Red Orchestra 2.

Why would they spend resources to release an editor for a console centered game created for the purpose revenue generation in the period before gears of war 3 comes out? Also tools interfere with paid DLC content.

The gameplay is indeed 'console centric'. Gone is the sandboxy style of the original (though it wasn't really a sandbox either), replaced tunnels and box shaped open air areas where somehow there is rubble blocking every path accept the one you are supposed to use to advance.

Other things that give away the games obvious 'we want to be CoD with aliens' aspects of the game?

FOV of 55.

No kickback on any weapons.

Lead by the hand gameplay. You don't learn your suit powers yourself but instead they are turned off until the tutorial pops up and 'lets' you use them.

I'm not saying the game is bad. Frankly I only played the first few levels because I don't want to ruin the experience when I get the game (and I am, though not immediately). But it was pretty sad to see what happened to the game. The graphics are nice (though unoptimized) and limited to 'medium' which still actually looks quite nice. But the gameplay is a tunnel shooter modeled almost exactly after Call of Duty. Frankly if there weren't any aliens or a nanosuit it would be hard to tell the difference.

My final 'beta review' would be a score of 75 ('maybe' 80 once it hits) that strives to be what the original game strived to avoid and that is to be a CoD clone. Frankly if not for the simple fact that I can go invisible, sneak around to an enemy placement, grab a guy and throw him into his enemies this game might be a 'wait for the $20 sale in a year' game.

If you enjoyed the first (as I did, I liked that I could approach many fights from a variety of way, this one you have really only one way to fight. If you come out of tunnel A to boxy open area B on a rooftop and there is a box of grenades and all the enemies are clumped together, you basically go with that option because any other would be pointless.
If this turns out in the final I will be sad panda.

I loved the "sandbox" method of C1. Bit different paths to each objective. You can run and gun or stealth. Long range or up in their face. Personally I liked stealth. Wish the game had throwing weapons (knives and what not) of some kind. Especially with the STR suit option. Tho throwing crates and barrels at bad guys was fun too.

But to quote many others this sounds a lot like just another CoD. Forced direction, play it this way not your way kind of thing.

I will probably enjoy the game or just wait till it comes down in price so my wallet does not yell at me for spending $60 on something that is not that fun.

I expect that the FOV can be changed via ini files. But the poor kickback and the cod\console style gameplay is something that cannot be fixed. I am majorly disappointed. It's not going to be worth 60 bucks I fear.

Looking at the entire 2011 list and it is MASSIVE. This is a big year for gaming.

So many games, so little time. Sigh.......

You have to pick the cream of the crop and the genres you like the most.

It's a shame that to increase the length of the game, they have to rely on the tired replay each level again with a different character. Maybe the story will be different I hope? But I doubt it.

Thank you for taking up the cause for our disabled players and letting us know about this problem.
Pleasing ignorance? Seems a little disengenuous. Yes this problem needed to be mentioned because no developer or manager thought of it while they were developing the game. If we didn't tell them that 2+2=4, they wouldn't know it is so. Yay us.

Really? Seriously?

You're saying that someone stood up and said "F*** the disabled, ship this thing!"

Come on.

Shit happens in development...of anything. Hell, Porsche didn't put cupholders in their 9-series bodies until after receiving letters from drivers aking, "Gee, where do I put my cup of coffee?" Seems obvious, but things can be missed.

I HIGHLY doubt that anyone did this either intentionally or maliciously. It's not like nudie art hidden in a WAD file or something.

^D^
No that's what you are saying. That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying that stuff like this happens because there is little economic reason to add remapping functions to a game that is primarily a console game. Same reason why it took the American with Disabilities Act to get handicapped people access to places. And the same reason why it took laws to get telephone companies to install telephone infrastructure in rural areas. It's not economical to do so.

You should have quoted his reply and noticed something. Also notice all that unusual blue space in his post? What could be in there?

There is. I guess the point is to have it an option.. but part of me thinks that its not the responsibility of game makers to cater to EVERYONE.
Well with that attitude we would never have the Americans with Disabilities Act in the USA.. Nor would we have telephones or electricity in rural areas of the USA.
