Graphics/Sound (2 out of 5)
Home Fest allows you to play real life music tracks and this is fine the music isn't the problem with this game. The graphics in Home Fest are the weak point of this game. You start with a very small game play area and even the first upgrade doesn't improve it. The avatars are all small and the graphics are just blocky looking. There are better looking games on Facebook in this genre. While the content is there the graphics bring the game down to a below average level which is disappointing. With an upgrade to the graphics the game could be worth playing
Interface/Multiplayer (3 out of 5)
Home Fest has a decent interface and if you are a veteran of Facebook games you'll find the interface easy to use. Yoour main game play icons are all found at the bottom across your screen. You won't have aproblem navigating your way around the game. It's easy to slect items to move them and a little rotate icon comes up when you want to turn something. As with most Facebook games like Home Fest you can visit your Facebook friends and send gifts to them.
Game Play/Conclusion (2 out of 5)
Despite decent customization options, Home Fest fails to delivery anything more than a mediocre game play experience. This style of game has been done before and Home Fest just doesn’t do a good job of it. The main culprit with he game is the bland uninspired graphics which look like they came from an ancient console. Game developers on Facebook need to work on graphics because players expect more now from these games. This game might appeal to some but without much effort you’ll find better games on Facebook if you’re in a party mood. Home fest could improve in rating if the graphics are addressed since it does have a lot of items to work with.
