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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
