Graphically, this game is beautiful, as are the sounds and music. It's definitely original with the superhero backdrop, and someone with more than a passing interest in comics and their history will appreciate the near perfect duplication they've done of the 60's era of comics with things such as...
1) Word balloons like "WHAP!" and "BAM!"
2) Cheesy catch phrases like "For Freedom!" and "Moons of Riznor!"
3) Bright primary colors for heroes, as well as fairly cheesy origins
4) Heroes with idealized notions of being "do-gooders"
5) Likewise, half-baked villians with dreams of grandeur
6) Members still have their little spats, possible romances, etc.
7) Comic book cover artwork nearly identicaly to those from the 60's
8) Copying heroes from the past, like Captain America, Bucky, Aquaman, etc.
Strategy and tactics are required to win as you select and use up to a dozen pre-made characters OR CREATE YOUR OWN! The slow-motion effect (that you can adjust) makes this game possible and really shine. Camera control is incredibly easy. The physics engine they've built is superb (everything is destrucible, the more strength a char has, the more heavier objects he/she can lift, great collision detection, etc.) You've got various stats like speed, etc. And there are literally limitless variations of superpowers as you create and customize your own characters.
I've tried to think of some things I didn't like about it, but I honestly haven't enjoyed and respected a game this much since Half-Life. But if I had to pick some things, it'd be...
1) No mini-map. But not a big deal since levels aren't huge and double-clicking on a hero portrait takes you right to them.

If you took the classic superhero cartoons and comic books from the 50's and 60's and turned them into a PC game, you would have Freedom Force. In Freedom Force (FF), you begin with a mild-mannered citizen mysteriously given superhero powers and follow him as he joins other superheroes, learns about the mysterious origins of his superpowers and in true comic book fashion, defeats colorful super villains along the way.
FF is beautifully rendered with art that reminds a gamer of comic book drawings. The short movies in-between levels are fun to watch and the voice acting is a funny parody on comic book melodrama. Each level has a fully interactive environment as your super-strong hero can pick up cars, lamp posts, boulders and other items to throw at his enemies. Buildings can crumble, heroes can fly, villains can be "POW!" or "WHAM!" to your heart's desire. In short, FF captures all elements of comic book stories or campy superhero movies you grew up on.
The superheroes in FF have different powers and as you progress in the game, you can upgrade their abilities as your experience points increase. Depending on the prestige points you earn through completed objectives, you can recruit new heroes into your Freedom Force Headquarters or you can design your own.
FF is a fun and novel approach to PC gaming. It ends too soon though and the multi-player mode isn't much fun as it essentially just a death match against other online users with their own custom made mega-heroes. The real value of FF will be in the MOD community. Already, many gamers have designed skins and meshes based on classic comic book heroes (Superman, Wolverine, Spider-man, etc.) so that you play your favorite heroes.

This game is great. I almost never make purchases without reading reviews first, but their was somewhat of a gaming drought, and I suspected this would be good, so I got it. It has surpassed my expectations. This game is beautiful- the polygon count isn't as high as many games, but its so colorful, crisp, and clear you can't tell. This game has great presentation- it feels like a living, breathing, comic book, complete with over the top narrating, evil communist plots, and invaders from other planets. The Charecter Creation system is great, and lets you custom tailor the looks, powers, attacks, strenghts, weaknesses, and stats of a hero. The game itself is very fun, and is just the right difficulty- always challenging, never impossible. The cutscenes are presented in both comic book form and in in-game engine. The voice acting is way over the top, but good, as thats what it is aiming for, and the sounds are great. Also, the enviroment is fully interactive, so your charecter can pick up and roll fuel barrals, throw cars, swing traffic lights, and destroy buildings. In between mission, you hang out at the Freedom Fortress(your base) and check enemies, minons, and heroes in your database, oversee your heroes training, and get breifings. This game is definitly more then the sum of its parts, and its a blast to play.

FREEDOM FORCE hands down is one of the most wonderful games ever to hit the shelves. Combining the action and over-the-top adventure of the comic book with real-time strategy gameplay as well as an RPG, this PC game transports the player to another world and another time. Good and evil are painted in black and white. Nefarious villains abound in Patriot City, given amazing powers by the arrival of Energy X. However, as with any true comicbook plot, the same mysterious power that creates supervillains also creates and calls forth the superheroes that challenge those villains.
Crafted by Irrational Games, FREEDOM FORCE is the first true RPG that features superheroes and dastardly villains (complete with ringing challenges, threats, and pundits). Over the years, gamers have been promised such a venue but no one has ever been able to deliver. (Maybe the work of some unknown super-villain!?) Irrational Games also created the award-winning System Shock 2, the science-fiction based RPG, and the up-coming horror RPG, The Lost. All of the company's work so far has been in the RPG PC field, but efforts are being made to shift over into console gaming. Irrational Games has brought together creative talent that have been responsible for games such as: Thief: the Dark Project, Ultima Underworld, and System Shock.
One of the most appealing aspects of FREEDOM FORCE is the absolute ease of entering the gameplay. Even players unseasoned in the ways of RPGs and tactical strategy games can step into the world of Patriot City and begin battling supervillains and common crooks. Tips range throughout the early levels, allowing those new to the game playing system to learn how to use their powers as well as the best strategies to use against enemies.
