We have already mentioned the dissapointing review score that was given to Homefront by IGN in this post, however sales for the game seem to suggest that fan interest has not been knocked by the review.
In a post by Eurogamer we are told that 70% of sales were taken up by Xbox 360 gamers, which is a staggering percentage. Eurogamer stated that this may be due to the huge marketing campaign Microsoft held in order to make their exclusivity DLC deal worthwhile and not just a lost cause.
It would definately seem that they have succeeded here and regardless of the disappointing IGN review, the game has taken off in both America and Europe, in which it sold 375,000 copies in America alone on its first day on the shelves.
Eurogamer gave the game 6/10, a more diasappointing score than IGN’s, however their comments were more or less the same. It would seem that the reviews are mixed, the professionals think there was hype over nothing, whereas the fans think the game is still worth buying. What is your view on Homefront?
