Freedom Fighters is set in an alternate history where the Soviet Union has invaded and occupied New York City. You play a plumber turned resistance fighter who ends up leading the fightback.
Ex-Eurogamer editor Tom Bramwell reviewed Freedom Fighters, giving it a 7/10. “… it’s not too hard, it has a certain charm, it lets you take things on in your own way (as a commander or a commando), and it isn’t afraid of pushing the old-fashioned arcade challenge of getting through a level without hitting F6 every ten seconds,” Bramwell said. “Fun, frivolous and worth a look…”
Will Porter then penned a Freedom Fighters retrospective for Eurogamer back in November 2012. “Freedom Fighters was a slice of alterno-history mayhem,” Porter wrote. “It’s the tale of a New York plumber (no, not that New York plumber) who becomes a modern resistance hero as Soviet forces hunker down in Brooklyn. It’s a scenario well covered before and since, most recently in Modern Warfare 3, but IO’s matter-of-fact approach and sincere love of cultural stereotyping still makes Freedom Fighters sing.”
