    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.

    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. Expand

    An absolutely brilliant game! The graphics are great for the time it came out. The game play is solid and tactical. The squad controls are amazing, simple, and reliable in a tight fix. The story is a thrill ride of action, twists, and romance. Though we only really care about the Action and Twists =). The games hardest difficulty is as tough as riding a bull with your right arm tied behind your back. It's not impossible but it is VERY hard. The multiplayer is inventive and can be addicting. Which may force to keep your friend over for another two rounds of capture the flag death matches. The only bad thing I have found with the game is that it actually has an ending. Which is a very sad thing.. Not the ending but the game having an ending. Collapse

  1. 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.
  2. Has a handful of minor flaws (the lead character's limited control over his 12-member mercenary team, PC-like graphic stutters, lackluster multiplayer mode, etc.) that prevent it from reaching the heights of immersion and addictive fun that characterized its spiritual predecessor, "Hitman 2."

    I played it for a long time and I never really got used to some of the control issues - not that they make the game un-playable, obviously, far from it - they're just nagging.
