I want a Freedom Fighters 2!
I believe that Freedom Fighters 2 would fit great into today's market. Not saying the market is missing any squad based third person shooters, but really there isn't one out there that makes me feel the same way about that game. What you think?
Agreed, I've been hoping for a Freedom Fighters sequel ever since I beat the original game. I've played through it at least 3 times, and I rarely do that with any games these days. It was so easy to control your squad, and there were almost always multiple paths through each level. The atmosphere was amazing, and the music was a big part of that. I think I bought the game when it came out as a part of a "buy 2 get 1 free" deal at Toys R Us. I really had no idea that it would be this good, because the whole idea sounded cheesy.
Who the fuck doesnt? You guys remember when Jeff and the gang had an email about this back on gamespot and they mentioned how they kept getting emails about it on a repeated basis? The problem is that we have to get IO to recognize how many of us want and would purchase a freedom fighters 2
So does the rest of the world I have wanted it for so long but dont want to be dissapointed I want multiplayer original similar to kane and lynch style even though I didnt play it. Ground up next gen and more but we will see when this comes out since they wont talk about it at all.
"BoG said:True, that is. I think it came out at a time when I bought any game that Jeff org Greg gave a good score. I just checked, and it was jeff who gave it a 9.3."Freedom Fighters was a game that, looking back, I have no idea why I bought it. I am very glad that I did, though, as the game was a blast to play. I'm all for a sequel.You unconsciously sensed how awesome it would be. "
Wow, I didnt know my post would cause such a response. This game was a hidden gem. I think a sequel will take a while to come but at least I now know im not the only one that completed this game multiple times and loved it. Did anyone use the cheats, I used to love the invisibility one and confuse the hell out of the guards.
Freedom Fighters is easily the saddest irony of the Kane And Lynch/GerstmannGate madness. K&L was basically a spiritual succesor to Freedom fighters(in terms of the gameplay) but it doesn't even come close to matching the tight controls and smart A.I of it's 4 year old counterpart.
And while most reviews of Freedom Fighters were midling, the game got got one absolutely positive review: Jeff's
The irony is so thick, you could swear at it and become synonimous with a lack of integrety.
Freedom Fighters, man. I'd love to see a sequel. It's probably one of the mot influential shooters of the past 10 years: it made "Squad Tactics" easy, tactical, and fun on consoles(as apossed to the plodding and borring squad tactics of the PC Ghost Recon and Rainbow 6) Also, it's the first game, i think, to have an over the sholder shooting perspective, the very same aiming mode that made RE4 such a success.
So, yeah. Freedom Fighters 2. Let's do it!
Freedom Fighters was an extremely solid game. It had one of the best squad mechanics I've ever seen in a game, and it's definitely something that could benefit from this newly established online era for console gaming. Four player co-op in this could make for an amazing experience.
i just borrowed it from a friend and beat it, and even after playing modern games on the 360, i thought it was much better than a lot of other games. it had excellent controls, pretty smart ai for the time. only exception is that the ending was a bummer, but was pretty funny though
i dont buy many games but i would probably buy a sequal for this in a heartbeat
" As I understand it, EA owns the Freedom Fighters property. IO is owned by Square. Not going to happen. "If EA does own it, why not give it to a team like EA Canada or Redwood Shores? They've got some really talented people there. Is IO the only company allowed to make a sequel? Me confused.
