Freedom Force is a superhero adventure with squadron tactics and mission-based play. The game features fantastic heroes who develop over time, becoming stronger and gaining new powers as the game progresses. Players guide their hero characters through a classic storyline of "Good vs. Evil" that plays out in comic book-styled settings across the three-dimensional Patriot City game world. Interactive, deformable environments allow the heroes to perform classic comic book actions like smashing through brick walls or tossing large vehicles around in the city streets. Set in the early '60s, Freedom Force pays stylistic homage to the Silver Age of comics.
The Freedom Force single-player campaign is a long series of short, individual tactical missions. Stop the bank robbers. Rescue a captured comrade. Keep the city safe. Each time trouble rears its head, players choose the heroes for the squad that will deal with the problem. Success is rewarded with "Character" and "Prestige" points, which can be used to bolster abilities and draft new heroes to the Freedom Force team. Players can also create custom superhero characters and add them to the team, to fight for justice alongside the built-in heroes. Multiplayer options are offered as well, through skirmishes between two player-controlled teams across a LAN or the Internet. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
