Freedom Force Vs. The Third Reich

Following the success of the first game in the Freedom Force series comes the followup named Vs. The Third Reich. In this adventure we see the Freedom Force take on Hitlers baddies in a great struggle against the Nazi forces.

This is a strategy title for those of you who have not picked up the game before and has been really well thought out. The game is viewed from a diagonal lookdown angle and takes on the appearance of what is known as a Silver Age comic book (comics that came out from the 1960's through to about 1970 - Comic geeks can correct me on this one).All of the mainstays of the comics of that time are there with the bifs and pows that I am sure you would expect.

The game is very well put together too which is a lot of fun considering the subject matter could have reduced this to a steaming pile o' crap. Everything looks pretty sweet throughout, the animations are well rendered, as are the effects and the interface makes ordering the various superheroes around a fairly easy matter, although the ability to order heroes around in multiplayer is impeded whilst the game is paused.

This game moves along at a pretty brisk pace and gamers are going to be kept busy most of the time with very little waiting needing to be done whilst everyone has their turn. Characters are well thought out and the storyline is dyanamic. 

Another thing I liked about the game was that the super heroes are well balanced against each other with their powers too. Everyone can do something fairly cool but just make sure that you are staying on top of the action at all times as your uncontrolled heroes just are not that good at looking after themselves. They simply will not resort to anything more than physical attacks if the bad guys have a go at them off screen so make sure you are on top of everyone. 

All things said and done there is not a lot to fault with this game. There is enough action for non comic book fans to just get into and enjoy and for those of you who love comics, then you are going to have a blast with this reverent yet fun electronic look back at a paper age. 

Recommended.
