Since it was announced in early 2009, we’ve really been looking forward to Homefront. There’s something immediately appealing about a bleak, near-future shooter in which the US has been conquered by a brutal North Korean regime, and when you factor in that the script was written by Red Dawn/Dirty Harry/Conan the Barbarian scribe John Milius, the idea becomes goddamn irresistible.

Problem is, the water in Hydrophobia is just about the only thing this first installment of a planned downloadable trilogy has going for it. See, the water is gorgeous. It’s slick and fluid.
