  1. Deftly avoids the many pitfalls of AI squad tactics, and this, combined with great control, mission design, and presentation, makes for a truly fantastic game.
  2. While the gameplay is pretty tight, it’s the addition of charisma and squad mates that sets the game apart.

    It’s a fairly mindless shooter with some cool strategy elements, and aside from some optional tactical coolness, it’s pretty straightforward. It’s a fun and violent game with a really great reward structure.
  4. Even with a somewhat weak split-screen multiplayer mode, the challenging gameplay and engrossing plot will satisfy players on their first run through, while the superb AI and outstanding level design will keep them coming back for more.
  5. A nearly mindless squad-based shooter, oozing with arcade appeal. Don't expect the world and you won't be disappointed. This is all about the best possible kind of ass-kicking, with an insane amount of firepower. As surprising as it is fun. [Xbox Gamer]

    Eliminating enemy forces and hoisting our country's colors high above Manhattan rooftops never feels repetitive... Sadly, Freedom Fighters is over too quickly, it's easily completed during a weekend sitting. [Oct 2003, p.131]

    The squad-based AI is definitely worth a look, and despite all the flag-waving, the game manages to tell an involving story. It’s a shame that more effort wasn’t put into the graphics, or more variation wasn’t put into the gameplay.

    This is a quality third-person shooter. It is squad-based, but there isn't as much emphasis on that as in some other games (i.e. that This is a quality third-person shooter. It is squad-based, but there isn't as much emphasis on that as in some other games (i.e. that $50 piece of sh.t Brute Force). There isn't much here to offer gamers that they won't find somewhere else, but if you're looking for a good game like this, I think you'll be pleased. Expand
