The various works of author Anne McCaffrey have become standards of excellence in science fiction and fantasy. Based on McCaffrey's Freedom Trilogy, Freedom: First Resistance takes place here on Earth instead of the world of Botany featured in the novels. The alien Catteni have invaded our home planet and the underground human Resistance is the only hope against complete domination. McCaffrey worked closely with the game's developers and considers Freedom: First Resistance to be a continuation of the Freedom storyline.
Players take on the role of the main character Angel. In each mission, Angel is joined by two of the four other Resistance characters available for play. Each of the five characters has different abilities and weaknesses, so choosing the best team of three is part of the challenge. The game includes 18 core missions and 5 additional combat and adventure scenarios. A mix of puzzle solving, stealth, and fighting are required to infiltrate the Catteni regime and all five characters must survive to complete the story. This action adventure game features a third-person isometric view and runs on a version of Red Storm's Rogue Spear engine. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
