Homefront: The Revolution came out recently under the shadow of Uncharted 4 and it isn't a surprise to me that a lot of my friends haven't played it. Personally, I thought of picking up this game until I read the Polygon review which said (and I'm paraphrasing) that it was a technically sound game but everything in it was either bland or boring.
I'm not really surprised having played the first game in the series. I wasn't really wowed or entertained by it. And fortunately for me, I borrowed that game so I didn't really have the guilt of dropping close to 70 bucks on it. That being said though, it's kind of interesting what they put at the end of the sequel.
After you beat the game, you'll see this note above. And essentially it's a quick first-hand experience/description of how the game was stuck in development hell for a while. It switched studios constantly but somehow, still got made. And there's something really awesome about the fact that they put this in here.
It's like the Game Director is saying, "listen, I know this game might not be what we first intended it to be, but we're glad we got it out there". Hopefully in the future, if they continue with the Homefront series, the game will be a little more well-rounded than this one. But then again, I don't really have first-hand experience playing the game, just what I've read online.
Have any of you guys played the game?
