    Freedom Finger is a brilliantly surreal, challenging, vulgar and plain fun arcade shooter. While difficulty spikes can get a little frustrating, overall I enjoyed the style, story and gameplay more than enough to keep me going.

    If you're new to bullet hell shooters, I don't recommend that you start with Freedom Finger. It's a challenging game in a challenging genre. Anyone who enjoys a good shmup, though, would be remiss to miss the opportunity to play this game. You'll love that Freedom Finger isn't just another bullet hell clone and that it will really challenge your skills.

    Taking its off-the-wall sense of humour into account or not, there's no denying that Freedom Finger is a great shmup in every sense.

    I love that Freedom Finger sticks it, quite literally, to any expectations or tropes of the shmup genre. It’s tough, puerile and loud, while being thoughtful, creative and satirical. The music is fantastic, the challenge rewarding, and its only real hindrance is the ability of your fingers and thumbs.

    Freedom Finger features some excellent space shooter gameplay but falls a bit short with its brand of edgy political and social satire.

    The biggest problem Freedom Finger runs into is its lack of variety. The story and humor carry it for a while, but by the ends I grew tired of its monotony. I wish there was just a little more to it. The game looks cool, sounds great, and plays wonderfully, and it looks and runs good to boot. I just felt like it gave little reason to keep coming back for more. Lean into the ridiculous and add more modes or outlandish power-ups to keep things fresh, as it stands this is a game that I picked up once and put down without any intention of coming back. Still, I loved the time I spent with it.

    It is very clear from the outset that Freedom Finger on Xbox One is a niche game. It being a space shoot ‘em up is enough to put people off from the start. But if you also have an aversion to satirical, on the knuckle toilet humour, or more experimental music, then steer clear. If this does sound like something for you though, then Freedom Finger will offer a few hours of a lot of fun.

    Freedom Finger: Self proclaimed as a "Bat Sh*t crazy space shooter, Freedom Finger does nothing but live up to it's promise. Gameplay isFreedom Finger: Self proclaimed as a "Bat Sh*t crazy space shooter, Freedom Finger does nothing but live up to it's promise. Gameplay is offered up in intense 2D side scrolling spaceship blasting goodness. As you make your way through the game facing ever stranger foes while following the orders of a crazy General, Freedom Finger is not for a second dull or boring, it is a very strange game and a great concept and had me laughing as well as furrowing my brow and poking my tounge out in concentration at the latest crackpot boss fight. With amusing characters, a funny story line and good voice acting, Freedom Finger dishes out the fun times. Freedom Finger is a 2D side scrolling shooter, it looks great with plenty of color, well designed enviroments and animations and well drawn characters, in what I would describe as an Adult Cartoon kind of style. Overall: I would recommend getting this game to everyone. It's fun, can be played casually but ramp up the setting for a harder time. If you want something fun this is the game for you. I genuinely haven't laughed and smiled at a game this way in quite a while. Expand
