Default Really Homefront... Really?

Has anyone seen this?

Homefront - House-to-House Combat Video - Xbox 360 - IGN

I mean... Christ. I thought the game was going to be awesome and make games like
Call of Duty look like garbage.

But after seeing the video, I am amazed by how successful they were at hyping up the game for myself and my friends, and making so many people feel like it was going to be the best shooter EVAR!

Judging from that gameplay,

Homefront looks pathetic.

i don't really know what you were expecting, looks like your standard FPS, though it's nice to see you can cook your nades (or at least it looks like that). However I never had any intention in buying this...

Homefront

Searched the Gaming section for a few pages, never saw a Homefront thread, was quite suprised, started my own.

I apologize.

That looks pathetic. Even COD doesn't have soldiers that glow white.

maybe it's just the console version, and looking at the steam screenshots I can't say I see a difference between what you see in the vid and those ss's.

The only screenshots and videos they had up last week looked WAY different from the gameplay linked in this thread.

Matter fact, the screenshots up on Steam at this moment still don't look as bad as the gameplay videos.

Why does it look boring? There's no bloom, no "SUPER REALISTIC EFFECTS" like screen flaring or anything. At this point I can say it's not styled to be eyecandy like Crysis 2, but at least I won't make a judgment on how good the game is until I play it.
