Summary: and being as there aren't that many of them likely to be one of the best and is going to take some beating. Being released in 2002 it needs to be patched to allow it to run on XP/Vista, otherwise it will be of no more use than a tea coaster. Other than this it is as fresh now as it must have been back then. In a welcome change from an FPS the game is a real time strategy using 3d graphics that can be zoomed in on and the camera angle changed.
Summary: A very fun real-time strategy game based on 1960s superhero comics. The story leads you in well, starting with just one character (Minuteman), and gradually introducing new characters along with their secret origins, as well as, of course, the option to create your own superhero/heroine. The story is very faithful to the old Stan Lee / Jack Kirby classics, and the whole thing is a lot of fun.
Summary: An excellent game... and even though the sequel is on the horizon, still well worth picking up. As a bonus, the problem mentioned regarding XP Service Pack 2 (Service Pack 3 still being somewhere in the future of Windows) is now fixed with the 1.3 patch.
Excerpt: "...a Marvel comic with the Freedom Force logo emblazoned across the top and the 5 heroes of the game in a typical superhero pose. Flipping the case over I then proceed to find a little more about the game "The Fate of the World is in Your Hands" Or so it proclaims. "From a distant corner of the galaxy, an evil alien race sets in motion a sinister plan to conquer Earth. It unleashed a powerful catalyst - ENERGY X - that imbued the planet's ...
Pros: A great game concept, wonderfully executed
Cons: none really unless you miss you beauty sleep
Summary: Freedom Force is brilliant. After the first 3 or 4 missions it gets better and better. Making your own characters and selecting their powers is excellent. Me and my brother have had the game for nearly a year and we still love it. Freedom Force, for freedom - 10 out of 10.
Summary: I found Freedom Force really entertaining. I think the graphics were really good for a 2002 game. I say freedom force was one of the best games i have ever bought and i would recommend it for comic book readers. Now i`m going to move on to the Heroes but i shan`t go into detail about heroes.
Summary: FREEDOM FORCE is a roleplaying game based on the 60s comic-book era. Its not an action game, so if you want to blow up alien scum with a rocket luancher, buy HALF-LIFE. The characters are all based on real heroes, for example, Captain America's FREEDOM FORCE counterpart is Minuteman, the patriotic defender of Patriot City. Each hero has unique powers, and is easy to get attached to. And if any of the built-in characters don't interest you, you can make your own!
