View Full Version : Freedom Fighters Impressions?

11-07-03, 03:53 PM
I was wandering through the "House of Terror" museum in Budapest and thought, "Gee, it would be cool to have some sort of alternate-history action game in which the Soviets won the cold war, and you get to kick some commie booty as a US partisan."

And when we got back to the States I stumbled across Freedom Fighters. I ordered it for $15.99 from Amazon. Anyone have it? What are your impressions? Reviews have been quite favorable, from what I've seen.

Didn't dig it at all. Missions were all the same, really. No multiplayer. Graphics are pretty good, sound pretty much sucks. The MUSIC, on the other hand, might be worth the money right there, although it can get repetitive.

The best thing about it is the AI, which is nothing short of AMAZING.

It gets a little tedious towards the end, but the first few levels are ace.

There are also too little weapons or variation in enemies, and enemies appear to randomly spawn which becomes annoying.

I really enjoyed it though.

Not bad.
Graphics aren't much to talk about, and the sound isn't too bad. Nice atmospheric sounds though.

I thought the AI was poor at times. Throw a grenade at a crowd of bad guys, and they run into each other trying to get away.

The music, as mentioned, is superb.
It's by the excellent Jesper Kid, who composed the superb Hitman 2 music, and many old Amiga tunes.

Ignoring the fact that it was too short, I liked it. Sure it was repetitive, but when games are fun that's a good thing.

Yeah, I thought the AI was quite lame. I sat there with the assault rifle, picking off Russians, and they didn't even hop in the machine gun turret to nail me.

Oh well.

Damn right, stupid commie bastards. Though, it would have been a little better had the enemy been Greece.

Hmmm. Greece. Athens vs. Sparta. Hmmm.

(Of course the Cold War is over -- we won, remember? It's that whole "Red Dawn" thing, though...what if? Alternate history makes for fun reading...I want to see it mature for gaming!)

Thanks for the input, all...it's sitting on my desk, waiting for install (and has been for the past few days). We've been spending all our spare time with friends from outside the country for most of the week, so I haven't been able to install it. Soon.
