THQ's share price has plummeted by more than 20 percent in the last 24 hours, with analysts blaming mixed review scores of Homefront for the decline.

Currently sitting at $4.69 a share, 24 hours ago it was as high as $5.64. Homefront was believed by many to be a sure fire hit for THQ, financially, but with a metacritic of 72, it has put doubt in the minds of investors.

Still, there's nothing to say that it won't go on to be a huge seller and as THQ's CEO Brian Farrell said "The game seems to resonate with consumers."

GamingUnion.net published its review of the title today, giving it a 7/10 due to an almost neglected single-player campaign.
