Volition Studios and THQ had a long history, and Volition was quickly snapped up in the sell-off by Deep Silver's owner, Koch Media. Red Faction, of course, ended up a popular franchise for THQ. This original title was made for PS2, PC and Mac, with an N-Gage version developed as well.
While the sequel would prove ultimately more popular, it was 2006 when this Xbox 360 exclusive arrived, spawning a trilogy of games that proved a real asset for THQ, snapped up by Koch Media as part of its Volition purchase.
Clever parody or so po-faced that it just veers into being completely ludicrous? No one knew what to think in 2009 when Curtis Jackson stormed onto PS3 and 360, desperately trying to get his jewel-encrusted skull back from terrorists.
Regarded by some as the final nail in THQ's coffin, Homefront promised much but arrived to mixed reviews from people who felt that it fell short--literally, in terms of the single-player campaign length.
