Anne McCaffrey's Freedom: First Resistance
A hostile alien force has invaded Earth and forced everyone into captivity. As Angel Sanchez, you must guide a group of rebels against the Catteni aliens. This third-person action-adventure game is stealth based and allows players to control Angel and two other team members. They can be controlled as a group, or characters can be placed in strategic locations, depending on the mission. Players explore the environment and gain clues through object-based puzzle solving with cascading events. Dynamic lighting aids in stealth as players can retreat into the shadows then step into action at the right time. Seven hundred motion-capture moves help provide smooth actions.

If you have played other RPG's like Deus Ex you will find several hours of solid entertainment in playing it.
I just finished the game. I must say that when I first started playing the game, I never thought I would finish it. It seemed really boring without any action. Once you complete the first few levels though, the fun really starts. Just don't give up on the game right away.
I bought the game not knowing what to expect. The game is probably about 65 percent solving puzzles and 35 percent action.
Most of the puzzles are not that difficult although a few of them were real hard. If you are playing the game just remember that some characters need to perform some actions. The game never mentioned this, and it caused me to get stuck for a couple of days until I figured that out.
The graphics I thought were very well done. The frame rate was a little slow at times but never unplayable.
Pros: The fighting is fun, and the puzzles are solvable but challenging. The storyline is good, and a major part of the game is interacting with other characters to figure out what is going on. Once you get some good weapons, you can really cause major damage to the bad guys. No blood or anything. Everyone dies real nicely.
Cons: Sometimes other team members get stuck behind walls or desk. There are lots of places where all the characters will get jammed up and you have to switch between the characters alot to get out of those places. One time one of the characters just stuck and could not move out of the where she was. Had to restore to a saved game. At times the character you are fighting with refuses to fire a weapon or waits 10 seconds to do it. I could find no pattern to this, it just happens (save often)
Overall I really enjoyed the game after hating it at first. It gets a little tedious in parts, but overall I would say if you like RPG's with some action in them, then this is the game for you.
Also, it's split up into several missions(some of them only side-missions, not mandatory), so it's quite easy to quit the game to get up and catch some fresh air once and then ;-)
Before each mission, you get some instructions and the opinions of your collegues - up to five, from which two will join you on the mission. The puzzles are rather easy, mostly, though sometimes unwillingly hard, because you have to guess what to do exactly(the line "different object required" isn't quite helpful...
The levels are nicely made, with great detail - often you'll walk into empty rooms, just to find out they're - empty. Yes, nothing in here. Only made to make it feel more natural.
All in all, a great game - good for about a week of fun, if moderately played.
Unlike some other games, it doesn't end with just a "You've won. Good work", but shows you a nice video and even leaves the possibility for another game open. (Open, they didn't exactly say that there'd be another one.)
