28 March 2015
Excerpt: Freedom Force , released three years ago almost to the day, was a tactical strategy game involving superheroes. When “Energy X” canisters began falling on Patriot City, some of the city’s citizens used their newfound powers to do good -- and shortly formed the Freedom Force -- while others turned...
Conclusion: Each hero has three power points that can be used to activate unique powers. Additionally, each hero has up to two attack options that don’t drain any of these points, one of which is a default attack. The most powerful powers will drain all of the points.
Excerpt: Following the success of the first game in the Freedom Force series comes the followup named Vs. The Third Reich. In this adventure we see the Freedom Force take on Hitlers baddies in a great struggle against the Nazi forces.

Excerpt: Freedom Force Vs. the Third Reich (Freedom Force 2) follows the original ( review ), which was released in 2002 by Irrational Games. Like the original, it features dozens of playable dynamic comic book heroes, fully interactive and destructible environments and an amazing story.
Excerpt: "FOR FREEDOM!" Yes, Minuteman and his band of rag-tag heroes are back to take on the most overused villain in video games, The Third Reich. Fortunately, Irrational Games uses their comic-inspired creativity and spins the tale as if we had never heard of the Nazi party.
Excerpt: Freedom! Can there be any greater clarion call for the forces of good than when the cry goes out that freedom is endangered? Can there be any greater cityscape in the world than the spiraling skyscrapers of Patriot City?
Summary: The original Freedom Force showed that superhero games could actually be fun. It took Silver Age 4-color heroes and dropped them seamlessly into squad-based, real time strategy. And it had the perfect blend of humor, cheese, and stylish game play. So how does the sequel stack up? Very well.
