u cant beat this gripe

well i cant even play the game any longer. my game freezes during the load in screen. save your breath i have tried everything. thq suggests i use an alternate account until they can identify and fix the problem. thats the only suggestion they have. not an option. thank god this was a rental because this game is going in the mail. i never even tried multiplayer and apparently i never will. 600 gamerscore will have to be good enough i wanted more but im in a indefinite freeze zone. this is a legit bitch that i hope not many others have to experience.

I exit to dashboard, start up the game again, and it goes away usually.

The random lagginess online is doing my head in.. Never had any trouble with any game as I have a good connection. But me and my other mates are getting matched up with Americans every game it seems, and all our pings are red!

My ping response is 10 so should be perfect

Angry SP sucks ass

I had very high hopes for this game but the single player sucks. There is basically no story at all, no cut scenes, no emotion at all. They had good atmosphere but they did absolutely nothing with it. The SP is only 4 hours long for god sake, and the ending sucked too. I havent played MP yet so i cant comment on that. Im just glad i didnt buy this POS game. Biggest disappointment this year, just above DA2.

unless theres a chieve for making it through the game without being killed by a grenade on there i dont see how thats relative. i stick to what i said not so smart one. just take it slow through the infinite spawn areas. that will work. are you trying to say you got through the game on guerilla without being killed by a grenade? i dont care about your achievements only about mine.

I have been through the game getting killed left and right by grenades. Thats not the point here. Your trying to tell me how I can't get past the game on guerilla by taking my sweet ass time. The guide for this game even states that taking your time through the levels help. If you rush through this on guerilla, good for you. Im proud of you.

since this is a bitchin' thread I got a lil' gripe. When are they going to add more servers? I know people are having a hard time for full boat, but during peak hours I can't even get into a match by myself. I'm trying to get some gaming in before working tonight but come on.

u r LYFAO about a guy complaining about grenade deaths and your advice to him is take it slow. thats the exact opposite of what you do when a grenade is about to kill you. you run for your life which is futile quite a bit on guerilla. i want to see your take it slow strategy at the bottom of the church or when you get dropped off by the helo on the last level. FYI i dont just run through the game but i know when to haul ass and when to take it slow

Well here I go!

So today I was playing a multiplayer game and all of a sudden my game froze on me, I couldn't do anything but talk to my friends. So I waited a few minutes and decided it wasn't going to fix itself. I then opened the tray, removed the disk out and reset my Xbox.

When I joined back again all of my challenges had been reset, every one of them! This wasn't a few challenges here and there, this was 3 or 4 weapons maxed out, a few drones maxed out, a few vehicles maxed out and all of my camos (which by the way I find one of the most ridiculous ideas I have ever heard of, getting killstreaks to unlock camos)

After my initial rage I realised that even though it seemed like a bad thing at first, I does kind of help me get up to the highest rank quicker with the free xp received per challenge completed.

It has still royally pissed me off though!

I just wanted to bitch about how tactical this game is. I liked it when I first popped it in because I was sniping, then try to run and gun and fail. This is a lot more tactical than I was lead to believe. It's still and alright game, just not so much my cup of tea. I'll stick with it for a little bit, now I want another FPS lol >_<

OH DEAR GOD THE LAG.

I've been playing a few hours a day for four days now and have never had more than one red bar for ping. Most matches there's the host on four green and everyone on red... and my favourite is whenj you have the host on all green, the 14 other players with 2 yellow and me on one red.

Completely unplayable at the moment. With Crysis 2 out this Thursday (and Shift 2 the Thursday after), I might return for a full refund.

Very disappointed

was in a match last night and i about threw my controller at my tv. im trying to go for the 5 star achievement. so i use my drone. 10 seconds into it, boom the rhino takes it out. so i wait 5 minutes. thinking "okay someone had to of killed it" i deploy my drone again. again 10 seconds and it locks onto me. its even still in the same spot. long story short, he must of gotten about 1500 battlepoints off my my drones

and another thing they need to let you view the scoreboard before youre about to spawn. none of this stupid stuff where you have to wait until you spawn.

EFF YOU BEACON!!!!

I have the same issue with sniper rifles..headshots dont ever seem to register. Game has an overall issue with their hit boxes imo.

LOL!!! at the msg on the game right now..."dedicated servers will be down from 3am to 4am for maintainence" ....what fucking servers? lol
I have still yet to get into a damn dedicated server. I am so glad I only rented this...but I think im gonna ask MS for a refund for the online pass I paid for when the game is unplayable 90% of the time.

Well I can't bitch like most people because I merely rented the game and didn't waste $60 on it, and I'm sure as hell not going to drop 800MSP just to level to 50 in MP.

But, man...Kaos and THQ pretty much screwed the pooch if they were intending to outdo CoD. Homefront came directly from the school of Call of Duty 2 game design and makes absolutely no effort to innovate further. This would have been considered "awesome" five or six years ago but today it's no more or less than a "decent" game.

My worst gripes are how the game is unintentionally harder than it needs to be due to some cover that provides no protection, the aiming lock-on sometimes doesn't work, and (what I believe, anyway) how the grenade indicator doesn't appear sometimes.

I'll mop up most or all the remaining SP achievements then back to Gamefly with this one.

People complain about a lack of modes. Well BFBC2 only had 3 to begin with, Conquest, Rush, Squad Rush (the same as Rush but with less people), and Squad Team Deathmatch. The lack of weapons isn't that big of a deal, while its good to have choice its better than having a ton of weapons and most of them suck, like in Black ops. The singleplayer could have been better but the mp can be quite fun. Fun when your doing good being a lone wolf and even more fun when working together with a good team. Yea the server issues are a pain, but they underestimated the amount of players that would be playing this game.

Am the only one whom notices that this game is really a very poor man's version of a Call of Duty (especially Black Ops) game? The controls are almost the same, the weapons and knife all look and behave the same way. The replay of the movie for the level, even when reloading or selecting a checkpoint. The annoying slow-mo action prompted sequences. Seems as though copied everything about the game (Ops) but the fun. Just saying, the game feels like a budget title.


On another note, why do I feel like a rectangle moving around the environment? Especially when hiding behind cover. Don’t get me wrong though, I love how an enemy can shot me through cover and not even be about the see me clearly. Also, the voice acting seems to go from stiff, to robotic, to excessive swearing, to just plain unnecessary.

First I'd just like to say I agree with on the sniper rifle issues. I've made some of the most clutch headshots, and then have it utterly fail when I'm right on their head and they aren't moving. I mean in my second game I seen this lvl 42's head peak over the fence ever so slightly and made the shot at lvl 5. Then later in the day have epic fail shots when I'm dead on. This has resulted in me just 2 shot spamming kids. I find it more effective then trying to hit someone in the head, it seems to happen on accident more often now than me purposely aiming there.

As for the second point... I'm not saying that you don't know this, but just want to say this in general: People do realize that this game is not all dedicated servers right? I believe only the skirmish is p2p, because that is 16 players correct? I think even possibly the 24 players is p2p, only the larger games are hosted on servers. With that in mind I know for a fact the 16 are p2p and unsure of the 24. So if you play a lot of skirmish then don't expect to hit anything, and do expect to run into walls 24/7. I played skirmish when I couldn't get a game because the servers were down. Only one doing well was the host. I would get repeatedly stuck in walls, even after I stopped doing anything for seconds. Was a terrible experience, as for the hosted servers I find even 1 bar not to be terribly laggy, but you can definitely notice the difference when you are 3 barring. Anyways... my 2 cents.

No that actually sounds like it's better. Fucking stupid when someone has a LMG and they run as fast as someone with a SMG.
