As the title states, you should rent this game its not worth spending good hard earned money over, the storyline is okay, the multiplayer is okay, overall this game is okay, but some problems are that you sometimes do all the fighting, there is a lot of glitches, which makes it frustrating to play, when i RENTED this game I beat it in 3 hours, so please JUST RENT IT, its not worth keeping.

I'll preface this by saying I'm reviewing based solely on the single player campaign.

The game does a fairly good job of creating an interesting, if implausible, setting. The story isn't remarkable, but serviceable for an FPS.

The biggest failing of the single player mode is its extremely short length. I completed it in 3 sittings of about 1.5 hours, and probably could have done it faster if I was so inclined. The combat is pretty much the same as most mainstream shooters these days, which is to say its very similar to CoD.

Some positive points:
-Nice variety and balance in the weapons. I love the M16 in this game.
-Nice set piece scenes, the game does a good job of building atmosphere

Negative:
-Enemy grenades are very powerful, seemingly appear out of nowhere, and sometimes don't give you much chance to react
-Fairly dumb AI, teammates get stuck on walls, enemy soldiers will walk straight towards you out of cover

Overall it's definitely worth a playthrough, but definitely not worth buying.

Homefront feels like/plays/is a call of duty modern warfare knock off. This is good and bad in its own way.

While playing this game, every level had the same feeling as the American solider missions in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. Not only that but the control scheme is pretty much the same as call of duty's. The story was interesting at parts, but it did not leave me at the edge of my seat. Everything about this game felt adequate yet did not give me the thrills I wanted.

You should at least rent it and try it at least, but I did not enjoy this title for a buy price. I did not try the multiplayer, but at this point many people probably migrated to the Battlefield 3 or Modern Warfare 3 multiplayers; this multiplayer is probably dead by now.
