This was a fun video.
This video makes me regret not finishing Freedom Fighters. Oh, sugar!
this made me want to get a premium account
A wise choice!

Laughed way too hard when Vinny said "why don't you want to come out? Or, are you busy picking a dudes skull out of your teeth?"
Dang, I might have to go home and play this tonight. Such a good game.
Also, it is hard watching this video with Vinny not knowing about auto aim.
This has given me a STRONG desire to boot this up again. I own it on STEAM but I've only played about 20 mins.
Edit: I love Drew's shouting of advice like "NONONONO! THEERE'S A MEDKIT THAT WAY!" and when both of them scream simultaneously.
They did such a great job for not playing in so long. There were so many close calls, but they played smart and pulled out at the proper time.
(hellicopter shows up)
Vinney - "Get inside something!"
(runs in a circle)
it's too good
Next time on "Load Vinny's Brother's Last Save"...
"Show that guy's face whos boss" - Drew
I totally remember this game, though I never played or bought it.
Wow didn't even know this happened...
Yes, finish this game guys. Such an overlooked and fantastic game.
"Wait, who's Chris?"
"He's your brother."
Totally lost it there. Anyway, this was an amazing game, so underestimated. Glad they did a LOLS on it.
OMG freedom fighters! Cue Awesome music
I hate to use this word but that was beyond EPIC!
While I love watching this post-live, but these LOLSs are a lot more fun live and in the chat with other people.
This takes me back. Guys seem to be having fun with it, please keep it up.
If the Giant Bomb staff were fighting game characters and their abilities were based on gaming skills, it would look a little something like this:
Top Tier: Jeff, Drew
Mid Tier: Vinny, Dave, Patrick
Bottom Tier: Brad, Ryan
This was funny, fun, and intense, but I would like to see a new game instead of a part 2.
Represent da FCK Son!
the game has an autoaim just look at them ans pull the trigger, no need to zoom in lol
This almost got me to dig up my Gamecube and plug it in just to play this.
Better on pc, amazing game.
That video was fantastic. Easily the best LOLS so far.
Love this game
Great pick for LOLS. The storyline is decent enough (in that "Red Dawn" sort of way, except less nihilistic) and the gameplay really shines. I don't think I've come across a game since that combines the basic squad command stuff with an overarching strategic element (e.g. take out the attack helipad to stop the Hind from shooting up your resistance fighters, or take out the troop transport helicopter to stop Soviet reinforcements). I remember being furious whenever one of my resistance fighters would be killed (rather than just wounded) -- that happened toward the end on the last level when my squad ran smack into one of the heavily armored Soviet soldiers on a stairwell. The Soviet knocked down one of my fighters, unloaded his heavy machine gun clip into him while he was lying on the ground ... and then was promptly beaten to death by my angry squad.
I was laughing during the whole video. Great commentary and the game looks super-cool as well.
Start from the beginning! Vinny and Drew Freedom Fighters Endurance Run! So impressed they came into this cold and finished the level. I remember this game being hard as shit.
A worthless suggestion because it is too late, but Vinny could have avoided some awkwardness and in my opinion initially enjoyed the game if he had played the PC version of this game. I noticed the imput being kind of funny because of mapping and such, whereas on the K+M it was straightforward and smooth.
I say this though because it was Vinny who reminded me by a remark of his I think on the Bombcast, that he uses a controller for many PC games, and that reminder has helped me with titles like Space Marine, Fallout 3 and such.
This was such a good game. I really hoped they would have showed some of the multiplayer though. :(
The aiming is so much better in the PC. Bloody great game. Remember it fondly and this LOLS was fantastic. Roll on part 2!
I LOVE THIS GAME! Love it. Too bad it never got a sequel and homefront was shit.
aw. I thought it said "Freedom Force" at first. Oh well, maybe in some future Random PC Game...
in the forum thread I noted that I always mix those two titles up :D
I'd love to see them play Freedom Force as well, though!
Watching this kinda reminded me of watching Rorie play Dark Souls. That feeling of "Oh my god, what's around the next corner? Do I have enough stuff? Do I go back and revive my guys or save it for myself?" - it's extremely fun to watch. At least for me!
Wipe them out. TEAM?!
Heh, even when it first came out that sounded clumsy.
Get over there!ALL OF YOU!
This was one of my favorite games back in the day and this video made me get the game from the warehouse and start playing it again ! Hope you really come back to it and finish the fight.
Underrated classic, this one. Not really been any games quite like it since then.
Come on GB, it's 2012! bring drew in on the bombcast or put him on more content! 2012! the year of drew-mania!
This game was so fantastic, looks like it still holds up quite well. I loved how you could tackle different parts of each mission in a different order to affect things elsewhere. I used to have a copy of this for the PS2, but it got stolen :( I remember this last mission being pretty damn hard, even on lower difficulties - especially the final part at the fortress where you have to raise the four flags. Also, your dude is a plumber, if I remember correctly, which explains the wrench and poor shooting accuracy. The Freedom Fighters are just regular joes, like you and me!
The music was so good in this game.
Remember when people used to read the manuals for their games? Yeah, me neither.
huh. strange that there was widescreen for xbox. I swear the pc version doesn't have that o_O.
For some reason Freedom Fighters keeps reminding me of the video game based on The Thing.
Freedom Fighters is such a great game. Shame a sequel will never happen and I'm glad I held onto my Gamecube copy.
