Freedom Force is a real-time-strategy role-playing game that lets you guide several heroes through a series of linear missions. The game takes place in the '60s and looks, sounds, and acts like a vintage Stan Lee/Jack Kirby collaboration. Because Irrational Games didn't secure a big-name license (such as Marvel or DC), the game uses original characters, but they've cleverly packed in a character generator, and the Net is rife with fan sites offering, gratis, just about any hero you can think of: the Hulk, Spidey, Batman, and even Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons! You can use your own heroes in multiplayer mode or in the game itself by buying them with your Prestige Points (more on this below).

Starting off as star-spangled spreader of justice Minute Man, you'll begin your quest to thwart the powers of evil. Along the way you'll meet the alien Mentor, the fiery Latino El Diablo, the melancholy Man-Bot, a speedster named Bullet, and many more. Characters have statistics like any RPG and they gain experience as a team. Those on a mission gain the full value, and those back at Freedom Base gain only a fraction. When they "level up" you can buy new powers for them. Saving lives and solving missions gives you Prestige Points, which is a measure of how the citizens feel about your team. PP's let you buy new characters in the game.

The camera system is fluid and intuitive. You can spin around the heroes, zoom in and out, and even set the camera to follow them cinematically. The interface is also simple to use. Click on the character portrait, choose an attack, and click on the bad guy. Things get hectic in battle but you can pause the action with the space bar. You can also choose a slow-motion option, making it much easier to keep up with the action. The graphics are bright and vibrant and the audio is fantastic.

Freedom Force is a great tactical-strategy game on top of being a terrific tribute to the heroes of the comics' vaunted Silver Age. This is a game that's so good, you might want to buy two and keep one safe in a Mylar plastic bag. 'Nuff said. --Bob Andrews

Pros:

  • Pays loving tribute to the subject matter
  • The game behind the tribute is likewise worthy
Cons:
  • The missions are too linear to be replayable

Freedom Force puts you into your favorite comic-book adventures as you lead a of team of superheroes in their missions across New York City! Exciting multiplayer games that takes you into the superhero thrills you loved as a kid!

5.0 out of 5 stars I CAN'T STOP PLAYING THIS GAME!!!! March 3, 2004
Platform for Display:Mac|Edition:Standard
This game is insanely great (just like the macintosh!)! This real-time strategy game (aka RTS) plays very well and micromanagement is a real pleasure and not a chore.
The only problem I encountered while playing FF was whenever Timemaster showed up, and then the game would get real laggy and froze. This was remedied when I switched from playing at 1440x900 screen resolution to something less demanding of the processors, currently set at 1024x 640. This remedied the choppy Timemaster appearances, and I was able to play the game all the way to the end.
Which is something to be noted: Freedom Force is one of those rare games in which I felt compelled to play until the end, and without using cheats too!
Freedom Force is a real gem of a game and with any luck MacPlay and Irrational will see to a mac OS X release of the upcoming sequel Freedom Force vs. the Third Reich!!!
Easily the best superhero game ever released. If you're into real-time strategy and/or the Silver Age of comix this is indeed a must-have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch RPG from MacPlay June 29, 2004
Platform for Display:Mac|Edition:Standard
Have you ever heard anything bad anout Freedom force? I doubt it. And for good reason this game is almost completely flawless. You get great gameplay, slick, detailed graphics, tons of hero abilities, varied levels, you can make your own characters, giving them all the abilities (including edited ones) that you could ever want, you can literally rip the citys apart and either bust, swing, throw, or explode almost everything you find, and you get at least several weeks worth of total bliss while playing away at this game.
Probably my only minor quibble was that some of the the characters lines were so lame and repetitive that you could hardly even use the excuse "It's all just a parody" (which the developers claimed it wasn't) but as I said it was only minor so just let it roll.
If you have $35 and want a game, regardless of whether your new to gaming, dislike RPGs, or have only the bare system requirements (it's practically worth upgrading just to play this game) its a crime not to purchase Freedom Force.

THe game is like a comic book as a computer. All throuhgout the game your main character Minuteman encounters diffucult tasks. The graphics are pretty good for an RPG and the story is funny and interesting. I give it five stars. Multiplayer is great.
All together its awsome. You should buy it.
