  1. This time however, there was a certain good feeling that prevailed throughout the whole game. A possibility exists that the music helped conquer my heart.

    If you enjoy puzzle-oriented RPGs or the Freedom series, you might enjoy this game. Otherwise it should stay on the shelf.
  3. If you're a fan of McCaffrey's writing then take a look at this one -- you'll probably enjoy it. But if you're a real adventure aficionado you'll undoubtedly find the game too easy for your tastes, better to give this one a miss than be disappointed.
  4. With clearly low production values, this game is ultimately quite boring. Dreary drudgery is what you have to slog through to get to the end, and believe me it is just not worth it.
  5. We saw plenty of good action/adventures in the year 2000. This wasn't one of them. [Mar 2001, p.82]
  6. Freedom's total lack of action is complemented by a complete absence of adventure, leaving only bland graphics and a general sense of tedium to fill the giant void that exists between installing the game and finishing it.
  7. We were so afraid that this radioctive unfun would contaminate the other games on our shelf that we threw it away in a lead box.

    Reviewers hammered this game but I still enjoyed playing it. Interesting story, interesting characters, large open levels. Played all the way to the end so I must have had fun, but honestly can't give it more than a 6. Expand
