Description

The Soviet Union has invaded New York City! Chris Stone is just a plumber, and he's willing to live out his life normally even after the occupation. Until the Soviets picked up his brother Troy and charged him of being a terrorist (i.e. freedom fighter). Now Chris must contact the real freedom fighters, get his brother out, and eventually, drive the invaders out of New York.

Freedom Fighters is a third-person shooter with squad-based tactics, with a variety of typical weapons such as pistol, revolver, assault rifle, sub machine gun, shotgun, rocket launcher, grenade, and so on. As you proceed further in the game, you can control more and more people in your squad, until you end up with up to a dozen different freedom fighters all fighting alongside you in your quest to drive out the invaders.

Trivia

1001 Video Games

Freedom Fighters appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

References

There's a reference to I/O Interactive's Hitman series near the beginning of the game. On the wall of the apartment you start in, you can see a movie poster for a movie called "Hong Kong Love Story" with a picture of Agent 47 and Lei Ling (the girl from the Lee Hong Assassination mission of Hitman: Codename 47) in a romantic embrace. This is kinda funny because in the original game, Agent 47 couldn't stand her. He can also be seen in several billboards around the city advertising a clothing store.

Voice acting

Nicholas Worth, who did the voice acting for the main villain in Freedom Fighters, also happened to play a very similar role in the game Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 as Alexei Romanov - another alternate history game where the Soviet Union strikes at America.
