Dont do it! I bought this game as a pre-order, the single player game can easily be done in less than 2 and 1/2 hours and if ok but nothing special.The multiplayer was so laggy and unstable it was a joke. They may have improved the servers somewhat since release even so not worth £25 there will be ALOT of copies floating around in the preowned section of most game retailers. (Note the pre-owned copies you will have to pay £5ish to play play online past level 5 as there is a code you need to enter that comes with new copies)

They fixed most of the problems with 2 patches AFAIK, I don't have the game but that's what I've read. I just ordered Black Ops instead for £27.48 (using some points), probably a safer bet.

Hopefully they have fixed the online, i can pick it up dirt cheap at some point then as i know alot of people traded thier copy in for Crysis 2.

No idea what this game is like, but from kaos studios nothing surprises me. They treated the PC community of frontlines fuel of war like dirt and from then on i vowed to never buy another one of their games. Judging by the reviews i read it was a wise choice too...

This game will be £5.99 in a month or two.

You ordered Black ops? Big mistake mate. Online multi-player = Who ever has the best internet connection.

Anyone tried Alien vs Predator on-line? Comms are crystal and getting together with mates in lobbys is near flawless. The atmosphere is really good as well, esp. in the pyramid and shifting walls! AND its only £6 from CEX.

Who ever has the best internet connection? I doubt that as we have a high speed here so you're saying i should be the king?

I'm good, but that doesnt make a difference.

Yes sometimes you end up in laggy servers but not very often - for me anyway.

I like it alot more than MW2. The maps are much better.

Online is good in Homefront. It still needs patching though. Homefront uses servers.

I have a great connection and got picked as host 90% of the time in MW2 on the PC. I've played Black Ops loads on the PC and enjoy it, but I've always wanted to try a CoD game on a console.

Not a bad game,,,just very very short........Join Blockbuster and rent,glad I did....Not sure i could swallow full price

Isn't the game deal better value for money as it comes with exclusive multiplayer content?

Ermm..........It won't be £5.99 in a month or two.

I will only buy this game when it reaches the price i got Frontlines for. 98p. Kaos Studios is a terrible games developer.

a) Crysis 2 multiplayer is utter dog ****. The netcode is insanely bad, the gameplay is completely uninspired and unimaginative. The graphics aren't even *that* good. Stop masturbating over the hype, Crysis 2 was a big let down - I traded mine in after two days.

b) Homefront was a good attempt, but again failed to deliver. The market is saturated with FPS's at the moment, and you have to be pretty amazing to stand out. Homefront did nothing unique to achieve this. It's actually an 'OK' game to play (now they've fixed a lot of it) but OK just doesn't cut it. I traded this in after six days.

c) don't even get me started on Blops. If anybody says its the best FPS out atm, or even goes as far as to say its better than MW2, they deserve f**king with a wire brush. Utterly uninspired bucket of toss. It's like, MW2 for the disabled and children.

finished this game in 2hours on medium setting, thought the sp campaign was just gettin into its stride then it finishes, grafically its pretty but not on par with black ops (not close), it hasnt gone for realistic graffix like i say its pretty, the weapons dont look real compared to any of the mw and b.ops. i was hoping for big things from this game,waited for its release for mnths, also the audio is pretty poor, SFX gunshots,grenades all let it down,the athmospheric sound isnt too bad i.e running thru the streets and soldiers shouting ,all sounds pretty legit, more so in mp, but not enuff to make up for the downfalls, i bought it shortly after release,luckily @ half price,,,,,,with patches etc the mp game still cant hold my attention for long...more steathy than cod,a little more bf2-ish, u can throw a full mg clip into an enemy then they can turn n lay u out in 1 round haha,oh and sniper weaps are weak too.6/10
