Despite the initial bad reviews (purchase question)
Would it be a good idea to go for it now? 1/5th the price seems like a steal for a "AAA" title, even if the game wasnt recieved that well initially I can see a huge discount making a mediocre game mroe palletable if the price reflects. This is more of an oppinion question I know.

Yeah, the game is much better now than what it was on launch, and the current price is more than ok for what you get.

Just remember that the $12 Freedom Fighter Bundle includes the story DLC expansion pass, which is normally $16-25 to buy on its own. The DLC is normally a bit pricey, but it's a steal for 2 extra bucks.

Like the guy above me says.

There a reason why it's so cheap so soon after its release. The game is riddled with issues. It's not worth buying at any price. I just bought it at $10 and I can't finish it. Not because I don't want it. But because of a game-breaking bug that won't let me.

Do yourself a favor and buy something else. ANYTHING else.

Its vanilla as far as shooters go, but its worth its bargain bin pricetag now that its been patched to hell and back. That said there are some annoying issues, since there are some moments where the scripted scenes break and not even reloading checkpoints help. To fix that you have to go back to the main menu, choose the "load game" option I think, and since it autosaves a lot you have to go back to choose one save that happened before you started a mission or cleared a safe house.

As is often repeated to me my old professor, The Hell's streets are paved with Good Intentions: Dambuster Studios and Deep Silver have picked up the baton left by THQ and Kaos Studios (respectively Publisher and Developer of the original Homefront in 2011) and created Homefront: the Revolution, with new story and new gameplay. Premises undoubtedly promising but sadly disappointing in practice.

Homefront: The Revolution is neither a prequel nor a sequel Homefront, but rather a complete reboot. The North Koreans have enslaved indeed America without any military strike: It 'was enough to make the country so dependent on technology produced by Korean Apex Corporation to force the Americans into debt up to his neck to acquire it. After that Pyongyang has sent the country into chaos by turning off all electronic devices in Apex sold in the US through a backdoor. Unable to pay the accumulated debts, the US government has been forced to give up the country's natural resources to NORCs, who assumed full control of the territory and enslaved the population.

The game is set in 2029 in Philadelphia: play as Ethan Brady, new purchase of the Resistance who is himself involved in the capture of Benjamin Walker, the charismatic leader of the resistance who had tried to save Brady and his friends from the clutches of NORCs. Managed to escape the Korean patrols, Brady reaches the cell of the Resistance commanded by Jack Parrish and Diana Moore and together begin to look for information on the possible location of Walker and to plan his rescue.

Homefront: The Revolution (H: TR) is a first-person shooter with Open-World in Macro Areas structure, each representing an area of ​​the city. To switch between a zone and the other requires a load, also they are not all accessible immediately but are unlocked As you progress in the game. Essentially there are two distinct types of zones: Those Red areas are off-limits to civilians in ruins NORCs patrolled by troops, while yellow ones are populated and heavily patrolled by the enemy.

The game dynamics change depending on the type of area in which we find ourselves: In red we will face fierce and brief clashes against NORC forces to conquer the outposts and landmarks where each zone is divided (to do so is to reduce the presence NORC the neighborhood), while in the Yellow we will have to operate as much as possible in the shadows since being spotted means trigger an alarm which then bring all of the enemies converging on our position to attack us. In this situation, the game carries out continuous respawn of enemies and it is impossible to think of all face, therefore it is better to lose our tracks by hiding in one of several shelters until the alarm will not cease.

The reason I ask because sometimes people claim they ran into a massive bug but it turns out they're encountered some sort of puzzle or vague instruction from the game.
