Freedom Fighters demo

CNET Editors' review

This tactical third-person shooter based on the graphics and engine of the Hitman series places you in an alternate history wherein the Soviet Union has won the Cold War and begun occupying the United States. Amid this turmoil, you must recruit a squad of resistance fighters who will battle the Red Army for control of New York City. Freedom Fighters looks to be an excellent small-squad action game, judging by the single-mission, single-player demo.

In the demo, you immediately find three willing recruits and start fighting the Soviets. Pressing the 1 key makes them follow or regroup, pressing 2 makes them scout an area or attack enemy troops, and pressing 3 places them in a defensive position. The first part of the demo involves a quick skirmish outside a gas station, which you should then detonate to fulfill your secondary mission. In the next part, you wage a full-fledged firefight for control of a Brooklyn post office. You cannot defeat the enemy single-handedly, so proper command of your team is a must. The lack of controller support is lamentable, and the interface is a bit simplified, but it's fairly easy to tweak the settings for maximum performance.

    "Coolest and Funnest Game Demo.."

    November 26, 2006  |   By Jonnys867

    Version: Freedom Fighters demo

    Pros

    The graphics for this game are amazing. I loved the fact that you could change the dificulty and sound, etc on this demo. By far one of the greatest demo's I've ever played!

    Cons

    Many glitches and there should be more patch updates. I know this kind of stuff because I'm a game designer and programer at FullSail School for Video Game Art

    "If you like Red Dawn, Red Alert to Red Alert 2, You will LOVE this."

    July 10, 2006  |   By nmmgb

    Version: Freedom Fighters demo

    Pros

    If you are like me, you have played the games of Command & Conquer, Red Alert to Red Alert 2 Yuri's Revenge. Seen the movie Red Dawn and loved the detail on the Soviet tanks. Watched The Day After just because the Soviets are the ones we are fighting (Okay, and because of the Nukes). AND looked up the words Soviet, USSR, Nuclear War. I have. And I found another USSR game. Freedom Fighters. I played it once, ah... one more level surely cant hurt, until that "one" more begins to pop up over and over. After a while my mother came in (I'm not yet 18) and plyed me from my mouse and key board. I jump to the computer the next day and play and play. I eliminate whole divisions of those Communist sons o...[inappropriate comment] mother... [inappropriate comment] bitc...[inappropriate comment][inappropriate comment]. And now I just pray for a expansion pack or a Mexican campaign or some thing to quench my thirst for more of this game. AKA its a good game.

    Cons

    Unless you use cheats, You can die.

    "CAN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS!!!"

    May 27, 2006  |   By sparks0213

    Version: Freedom Fighters demo

    Pros

    I picked this game up at a flea market

    because it was cheap, ($2) and not knowing anything about the game, it wasn't going to break the bank. After installing the game, I found it near impossible to shut it down for the night. It has a believable story line, so it wasn't hard to find myself so immersed in the game. It has about a 1/2 dozen levels, and they get very challenging as you go along. I could never get any further than half way through, so there is a cheat for the game that gives you unlimited ammo, and a god mode. I wanted to see how the game ends,

    so I played it on god mode. When you get to the end of the highest level, you'll be surprised on what happens when you finish all the levels. Have fun!!

    Cons

    There should be some patches or add-ons to make this great game even better.

    "Best PC game demo I've played."

    March 12, 2006  |   By Vladdo

    Version: Freedom Fighters demo

    Pros

    I've never downloaded a free PC game demo that was this in-depth, detailed and all-around fun. This is the post office level from Freedom Fighters, plus many more soldiers, a sniper rifle, and a rocket launcher.

    I'd like to mention here that it is possible to change this demo's difficulty, and to adjust the sound levels of the music, voices and sound effects. After downloading the demo, go into the Freedom Fighters folder (default "C:\Program Files\EA Games\Freedom Fighters Demo\") and find the file named "Freedom.ini". It should open as a text file. You should be able to figure it out; to change difficulty, type "Easy", "Medium" or "Hard" next to "DifficultyLevel", and to change the volumes, simply enter in different numbers next to music, sound effects, speech, or intro music.

    I have beaten this demo several times on these three difficulties and I just can't get enough of it.

    "The Only Game I've Ever Purchased Immediately..."

    December 19, 2005  |   By DuneRoad1

    Version: Freedom Fighters demo

    Pros

    Unreal attention to detail. Can shoot out windows, lights, walls, cars. Amazing, realistic detailed cityscape. Very good music, great 'playablity'. Easy-to-master controls. Excellent balance of strategy and action. Actions affect later outcome. Seasons change. Like 'Escape from New York' wih Russians. A movie you can play. This is the best game I've ever played. Bought it new for $9.99 on Amazon. Playing it for over two months now.

    Cons

    It ends. No sequel. I want a follow up!

    "The best game I've ever owned!!"

    April 17, 2005  |   By sparky0213

    Version: Freedom Fighters demo

    Pros

    Awesome graphics, very detailed. I found

    this game at a flea market...what a stroke of luck. Although I've played this

    game hundred's of times, I'm "still" finding new scenerios to challenge.

    Cons

    On occasion the game freezes for a second

    or two. But that may just be the small cpu in my computer (p-3, 600mhz)
