Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

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.
