Gave them the benifit of the doubt for fixing this.

They've taken to long.

So I have traded it and will buy it again when its dirt cheap.

Im not paying 35 quid for a game, mainly for multiplayer thats broken for finding matches, especially with teams.

If they can't fix it within the first week internally, and need to go via Microsoft to fix it, well, that a pretty bad mess they had before launch.

Beta next time.

Starting this game I heard that it was awful and no one was going to buy it....... going from that, the game was great. The story mode was pretty short, and those achievements to not die in any level are kinda stupid but overall I liked the game a lot.
Online the only real problem I see so far is the not being able to shoot people through anything at all, which after playing COD for years, this was quite annoying.

I didnt like the solo campaign but MP is kinda refreshing, like buying vehicles and dropping hellfire and the like. I was gonna gripe about the servers as 1 in 3 games fails for that exact reason but I can wait til they get fixed. Some new game modes wouldnt go amiss either!

At level 43, my stats got reset and I had to reunlock everything, but I still got to keep my rank. Getting the expert challenges again is going to be annoying, but o well. At the same time, I was around 41 newspapers collected in the sp. It went right back down to 0.

I was pissed and took a break off homefront, but I'll be getting right back into now.

Thumbs down screw this game

How the fuck are you supposed to make it through an entire without dying when you're slower than Forrest Gump on heroine? Let alone when the levels are a whole hour long, what the fuck were the programmers thinking?

Anyway. Multiplayers fun, but they should have called the game "When Call of Duty meets Battlefield"

I getting tired of the glitches in the SP, Im trying to beat the levels with out dying but on level 4 the wall, I cant conttrol Goliath to take out the tank. On level 3, right at the end Goliath wouldnt shoot, so the helicopter killed me, some times Goliath wont lock on and blow things up.

It wouldnt be so bad if I didnt have to start the whole level over again

You don't have to start the whole level again (unless you are trying for Iron Man), just start at the last checkpoint.
Take your time, make sure you lock on and then don't let the target out of the sight until the rockets are on their way. If you let go too early the target is lost

After this patch came out now it seems like only the party leaders get credit for anything. Fix one problem and another three pop up.

Just thought I'd add my thoughts

Like everyone else thouight this was way too short. I was really looking forward to this but it didn't even feel like it had a proper ending there was no conclusion. If they do a second im just gonna rent and save myself some money.

On the bright side tho did like reading the newspaper clippings and wandering through a ruined America..... but thats probably just me.

Why do developers put MP achievements into games that force you to play the game in a certain way?..In this case its the challenges for 100%. They force you to use a bunch of garbage weopons that you wouldn't normally use (for good reason) and then force you to get kill streaks with them..its retarded. An example of this is the sniper rifle. I don't normally snipe..I general hate sniping and snipers with the exception of BFBC cos that game actually took skill to snipe. I normally like to get stuck in, always attacking and never camping. On this however they force you to use a terrible sniper rifle and then force you to get a 10 streak with it which basically removes you from the game and makes you of no use to the team...which in turn makes the game less fun. I've got no problem with MP cheevos but these ones are just spoiling the game a bit i feel.

The second thing is when will developers change the power of the knife. In games like CoD and HF its almost that the knife is the most powerful weopon in the game. I've lost count of the number of times someone has been running at me, soaked up 3-4 shots and then stabbed me. Why is the knife more powerful than a gun?!..I mean seriously how often does a soldier pull out a knife in the middle of a gun fight?. The knife should take 2-3 stabs to kill someone, not one. Or maybe if someone is charging at you and you are shooting them they should slow down or something as they take damage. It shouldn't be more powerful than bullets.

Ok these challenges aren't gonna complete themselves so rant over.

I like the idea of the knife being a one hit kill, but I definitely think that you should slow down some if someone is shooting you while you're running. That would make things a bit more fair.

NERD RAGE trying to do these levels without dying.

Freaking glitches galore, getting stuck, AI not able to make it to the waypoint so I can't continue, random deaths, double grenades. I can't believe how many times I've tried replaying these stupid-assed missions on EASY.

I hate the snipers that infest every single map and can't shoot anything else. The tanks that suck down 10 rockets and 4 Hellfire missles and yet they still drive around and kill me in my spawn. The spawn killers that need to get forced out of our spawn when the map moves forward or back. The stupid teammates that seem to be in every room and every game that I get in. And the fact that I save my BP the whole game to call in an Attack Heli, and then it gets shoot down within 30 seconds and I didn't even get a kill, give me a fucking refund or something!!!

I seriously regret buying this game. First I was upset at the beginning when a kid has to watch his parents get shot, totally uncalled for in a game.

Then they make the single player worth the least amount of GS in the game. The game seems like it is trying really hard to be a Modern Warfare, but it puts all its GS in the MP to compensate for the random drops and the lack luster gaming. Not to mention the oddest cheevos I have ever seen for going in with a party. I mean, really? Why bother?

So regretting buying this game. I liked the story and the variety to play, but there is so much they could have done A LOT better.

I've tried to endure and accept the numerous short comings of the game and enjoy it on my way to 1000.

Now, when I've accumulated 1,000,000 (one million) XP, the servers reset me to level 1.

I'm so tempted to sell it off.

-To few weapons in MP
-3 hour campaign
-Poor graphics
-Server issues/forced to play player hosted rooms
-Slow,sluggish controls
-2 gametypes..
just to name a few things..
Amen to that, brother. Devs are all about releasing half ready crap and then fixing it later, if they bother fixing it at all. At least they don't release a game and then release DLC like 2 days later expecting me to buy something that could have already been in the game... oh wait...

I love this game, but I wish they would really increase the server capacity. I played for around 3 hours today and only completed two whole games. I quit out of all the rest because of lag. I don't care what your morals/ethics are regarding quitting, I am totally ok with it; I refuse to play laggy games because what's the point if you're going to die all the time anyways.

For example, once I was getting shot at (I heard hit markers on me) BEFORE the guy came around the corner, and when he turned the corner and I pulled the trigger, I just dropped dead.

Just right now, I saw an enemy go prone behind a wall, with the tip of his gun stuck out a bit. So I sneak up to where he is, turn the corner and knife him. I instantly dropped dead. According to the feed, it said he shot me with an assault rifle. He was prone so it couldn't have been a headshot. And I only came into his sights when I turned the corner so at most he could've unloaded a couple of bullets. And regardless, knifing always wins. I know because I keep getting killed by people rushing me while I'm unloading bullets into their face.

Luckily there's no ban for quitting, like in Halo Reach. I probably would've been banned for a month.

3 things really stand out in this game after all the play time I have.

1. Absolutely NO spawn protection for either team, so you can get spawn raped when the enemy team decides to spawn 3 tanks and stand in your spawn and shoot you as you pop up on their screen, straight outta BC2. Seriously, WTF where the developers thinking when they decided to make it so the enemy could just drive or run right into your base and shoot you as you spawn.

2. People that are low rank need thrown into rooms with other low ranks, and this should follow suit with all the ranks. I've been in multiple rooms where I had nothing but rank 9s or below on my team and the enemy team had 60s or above. It was about the gayest room I've ever been in.

3. Unbalanced guns. If you're using an AR that's 1 shot or 3 shot burst and you start shooting at the enemy first and you sink every shot, you should win. Not get hitmarkers until they spin around and return fire, just to get killed before you kill them somehow.

Also add to this that I go to start and play this game today and now I can't even get into a match at all, 10 random attemps and trying to accept a few invites from others and not once letting me get into a game. Thanks to everyone that was part of the different boosting sessions I was apart of but this shit is getting traded in now. Screw you Kaos and THQ, I'm never buying a game from your companies untill all of your stupid little bugs are fixed.

This game is terrible on so many levels. At the very base level, there is only two options for button layout - left and right handed. Not having a layout where you can crouch/prone on a stick, such as tactical layout in the call of duty series, is beyond stupid.

Eat some crow and learn your lesson THQ. You did a piss poor job with this game.

That's what used to be great about console games. It was so expensive to release a game and find out it was seriously buggy and needed to be fixed, that you had to make sure it was ready to release when you released it...not "close enough" that you could fix it later with patches.

Now though, consoles are just like PC games, and sometimes you get screwed by greedy publishers and lazy devs.

LOL at grenades in this game. No toss back, and they'll just sit there and spam you with them while you're pinned down by sentry guns and you are screwed. Also LOL at the stupid AI. I was trying to run past a sentry gun and the AI ran backwards 40 feet for no reason and stopped in front of me, blocking me from cover that I was trying to run to and take cover behind, and got me killed by the sentry gun.

This game gets an F- in my book. Worst game I have ever played on Xbox 360.

Seriously -- Ironman -- I'm going to punch you in the face.

I suffered replays through the random double grenades, the AI getting stuck so i can't continue, the machine-gun headshots I was getting hit with on easy, random barrel explosions. But the last damn level ... to make it through everything and have the Goliath at the very end missile me twice immediately and kill me?

I'm NOT DRIVING! I have NO CONTROL -- I was pumping it full of bullets doing my job and now I have to replay the freaking level because of this random BS.

ARRRRRRGHGHHHHH!! I wish I wasn't such a point whore.

Same thing happened to me tonight, and it was pretty much crap too - I never got the missile lock warning when he killed me, so I never knew to use countermeasures. It happened right before the very end of the sequence too. We had already spun around and were at least halfway to the end of the map.

Well I think I'm officially done with this game.


This game is like CoD and Battlefield combined, but with the bad parts from each one. CoD style terrible lag and bad host selection, a mix of both graphics, which results in crap, horrible sensitivity settings which can't be tuned right, gun stats which aren't reflected properly, horrible matchmaking which always puts the retarded low ranks on my team while staking the other team with 50s or above, and BC2s terrible spawn protection(by which I mean there is none). Combine all those things and you get a game that looks good on the surface and gets worse and worse everytime you play it. I'm glad I won't be playing this anymore, probably saved me a controller.
