  1. While the game could have been lengthier, Freedom Fighters is still just an outstanding blend of pure action and tactical squad combat. The squad control works incredibly well.
  2. This game is a tasty piece of eye candy. All the environments are not only huge, but extremely detailed. It runs on the Same engine as Hitman 2, but looks much better.
  3. I haven't even talked about the nonlinear gameplay, the spectacular graphics, the rock-solid controls, the amazing physics (especially the rag-doll death animations - wow), the great variety of missions and settings, the solid voice acting, the awesome orchestral soundtrack, or the exceptional multiplayer. [Oct 2003, p.122]
  4. Insanely addictive. [Jan 2007, p.106]
  5. An outstanding achievement in tactical action, Freedom Fighters soars to the top of the genre with spot-on gameplay and solid visuals. Streamlined tactical controls and solid AI make playing the game easy and fun.
  6. While the gameplay is pretty tight, it’s the addition of charisma and squad mates that sets the game apart.
  7. With the fabulous visuals, outstanding soundtracks, and easy to pick up gameplay, this is one game that you are sure to enjoy time and time again.

    Probably the best early squad-based shooter. The shooting, the game mechanics, the graphics, everything was great about this game. We've been hearing about a possible sequel since 2004, yet none has appeared. One of the greatest potential franchises that was never tapped in to. Such a shame. Full Review »

    A game from my early childhood, one of my favorite games from my childhood. A tactical shooter where you control a group of freedom fighters as a squad. The plot is ok, the dialog isn't perfect, characters don't have much background, but the story isn't the biggy. This game was one of the top-notch game back them with amazing graphics and really good gameplay. But dang, this game is hard! Or at least it was for me. Still it was brilliant. Full Review »
