Freedom Fighters is a Forgotten Gem Deserving of a Remake

BY JAMES BELL: Gaming in 2003 was the best. I won’t hear anyone say otherwise, it just was. Gorging on a gaming diet of Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Halo 2, Fable, and Devil May Cry 2 on my consoles, and “Hey Ya” by OutKast playing on my hi-fi. Bliss.

Whether you were gaming back then or not, you may have missed one of the most underrated games of 2003: Freedom Fighters. Developed by IO Interactive, the studio behind Hitman, Freedom Fighters deserves a lot more recognition for its interesting setting and fun gameplay that holds up to this day.

Oh man, I remember playing this on Gamecube. I picked it up at random used from Gamestop and I couldn't put it down, from start to finish. I'm sure if I went back to it now, the nostalgia wouldn't hold up. I'd like to see it reimagined for sure!

I loved this game on gamecube. It actually got a steam release and boy did it....not age well lol.

Changing the controls using an emulator make this just about playable, if I remember correctly aiming properly requires you to hold the stick down which is awful.

I tried the game about 2 years ago on Xbox, and yeah, the controls were un-playable for me. I can't remember why the controls were so bad, but I stopped after about 15 minutes, it was just terrible. Also the intro story was so darned goofy and contrived, we go from calm NYC to full scale invasion within 60 seconds.

An emulator may fix that, perhaps I'll try it on PCSX2 or Dolphin.

Yeah very weak story. I enjoyed the game as a kid but going back to it a few years ago was quite the eye opener. However there is fun to be had in the split screen multiplayer. 2-4 player hold the flag objective where you can recruit up to 8 NPCs each. Unique in that way. Got a few fun plays out of that and laughing at the jank is part of it.

I remember playing this game when it came out. But I don't remember it being amazing.

One of the most underrated gems of the PS2, a really great game

FingerAction389d ago

Very underrated gem…. I was obsessed with this game in my younger years.

isarai389d ago

Weird how a side project ps2 game had some of the most capable orderable companion ai ever made. Like their behavior is nothing groundbreaking, but if you tell them to cover an area, or attack an area, they do a damn fine job of being about as capable as you in shooting and cover

blady_man389d ago

one of my favourite games of the PS2, I love this game!!!


Seven Games I Would Love to See Remade, Remastered, or at Least Re-Released

Had a lot of fun with Scarface. That was around the peak of GTA clones. The amount of them has decreased substantially.

roadkillers771d ago (Edited 771d ago )

I agree, the side jobs of selling drugs was a blast.

porkChop771d ago

GTA 4 actually got some of the ideas for the new wanted system from Scarface.

-Foxtrot771d ago

Beyond Good and Evil would be fantastic

Simpsons Hit and Run, expanded with new areas from the newer seasons and with all the hubs joining on from one another to make one massive open world game

Bugs Bunny Lost in Time / Bugs Bunny and Taz: Time Busters

Sheep, Dog n Wolf (Sheep Raider)

Toy Story 2

Legend of Dragoon

Some of my "out there" picks anyway...

isarai771d ago

Ape Escape series
Path of Neo
Max Payne trilogy (or at least 1&2) BY ANYONE OTHER THAN GROVESTREET GAME FFS!
Rise of the Argonauts
Killzone 2

Just off the top of my head

Profchaos771d ago

Yup max Payne 1 by Grove St games would be the mobile version they did which dropped the difficulty to none existant just in 4k unfortunately.

FPS_D3TH771d ago

I would’ve added stalker but were thankfully getting a sequel soon. This would be my list

Max Payne 1 & 2
Freedom Fighters
Syphon Filter
Dino Crisis

Eidolon771d ago

Dino Crisis Remake, hell yeah. Like RE2/3 remake would be great.

Eidolon771d ago

PC has Mods, Xbox Series X has (4K?)/60fps. For consoles this would probably come down to deeper visual quality and quality of life improvements in one package, like the treatment Mass Effect trilogy got.

Yui_Suzumiya771d ago

I want it specifically on Switch though.. now later this year I plan on getting a Series X and I'll enjoy it there as well. My main problem is the fact that Bethesda has re-released Skyrim on nearly every console for 3 generations yet they haven't done anything with Fallout 3 or New Vegas. Those are just as popular as Skyrim so why haven't they been Remastered for all the current or even last gen consoles yet? I feel like us Fallout fans are getting the short end of the stick here.
