Editors' Review Staff Feb 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.

Developer's Description

Freedom Fighters is based on an alternate history in which the Soviet Union has won the Cold War and invaded America. You will take on the role of an average New Yorker named Christopher Stone and evolve into a fearless patriot who recruits and leads an army. Players will fight through the streets of New York City with seamless urban battles that take place outside as well as indoors. Because wars are not won alone, a key component of the game is the player's ability to recruit and lead fellow New Yorkers in the battle against the Red Menace. An intuitive recruiting command system allows him to give orders to his fellow soldiers and execute critical missions at the touch of a single button. The Freedom Fighters demo features one mission in which players must capture a post office that has been overrun by Soviets and is now being used as an operations base.
