"Homefront: The Revolution" reviews looms to 5 to 6 out of ten from most of the reviewers and that perhaps is the saddest thing about. Although it is not buggy and ran smoothly, it lacked the drive for gamers to continue. It missed the excitement. The guns are cool while the lone vehicle maneuvers easily yet there is no moment which feels reaching for something more than a check-the-boxes open-world shooter.

What would determine if "Homefront: The Revolution" will have a sequel. But its Nottingham-based developer Dambuster seemed to already pushing plans for its future, PC Gamer said. Citing the cryptic ending credits Zala said, "To create a game of this size and complexity with a relatively small team is a remarkable achievement," Then he ends by saying that Homefront is "just the beginning".
