Freedom Fighters – Consumer Guide

Brad Gallaway's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Violence

Parents
will want to steer young ones clear, though bigger kids should be okay with the often-steep difficulty curve. As you can probably guess, the content is all about soldier-to-soldier gunplay, although none of the deaths are bloody or gruesome. There are no sexual situations or any questionable language.

Action gamers will find an action-packed experience that's smooth and fast-moving. The team mechanics work great, and the environments are impressive. The feeling of repetition sets in early, but there's enough adrenaline to keep you playing until the end.

Military sim fans may initially be turned off by the lack of options, open-ended strategy, or unit customization. It delivers most of the goods, but Freedom Fighters is tightly focused and console-centric, far from what you'd expect from the Tom Clancy games and their ilk. Not a complaint, just a heads-up.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers are at a slight disadvantage. Hearing attack choppers circling is vital in some missions and may make for a few frustrating deaths. It's the only significant audio cue, but it's a fairly important one. On the plus side, all in-game dialogue is accompanied by text.
