Great scenario, funny characters with great voice acting, parodic musics... everything is done for comic book fans to feel at ease ! So bring with you some of your favorites heroes and go kick the Third Reich butt ! You won't regret it !

When I started playing this game I was suprised that I haven't seen this game before. The AI is done well, they're pretty good but not super hard. The graphics are a little disappointed, they could be a lot more detailed. The game itself does have some nice gameplay, but it does get boring after sometime, I recommend playing it during a break or something like that. The game didn't really feel like a RPG for me, I just played the story. The story is alright but it does get boring fast. I would pick this game up on a 75% off sale.
Good but with some problems.Sharptap | Sept. 24, 2012 | See all Sharptap's reviews »
One problem I had with the original Freedom Force was the constant managment of your characters during battle. Third Reich solves this problem by improving the A.I. of your allies. So from now, you will no longer see one of your guys motionless while being pummled by enemies. Another (minor) problem I had in the original was the fact that some unlockable characters had zero involvment in the game's story. Third Reich changes this by giving those characters an inclusion to Third Reich's story (albeit a minor one).The graphics have been improved as well. The characters in the game (PC and NPC) now have real-time shadows along with sunlight reflecting off their bodies.The Audio remians pretty unchanged, which is both good and lacking (I don't really need to explain).Third Reich is also a pretty short game compared to the original. Now, judging by the ending (which I will humbly, not spoil), there should be plans for another sequel to this new trilogy. This game is a must-buy for the fans.
A title that was perpetually overlookedFkpuz | Sept. 8, 2012 | See all Fkpuz's reviews »
The Freedom Force series as a whole was overlooked even from the day it came out but they were (and still are) a BLAST. This particular iteration of the Freedom Force series is a little short but it is worth well more than what it normally gets charged for. The graphics are dated but the art style is not and the gameplay is very innovative.
Character customization in this game is in a world of its own as well. You can create your very own super hero with its own customized abilities. For instance, if you wanted to make a super juggernaut type of character who can punch someone to another block you can do that. If you wanted said character to throw a car from the world at an enemy, you can do that too (if he/she has enough strength).

This game is quite old but it's still interesting to play. It reminds you of comic books. The graphics are quite good, probably because they are comic graphics. The sounds are only average in my opinion. But the main thing is the gameplay - every character has got it's own skills which are very unique. Neither of them are over or under powered, which makes them all fun. And I say that this is the main feature because there are so many games which have 3 characters, one of them is underpowered, one overpowered and the third is simply an average Joe. In these games - you will likely play only with the overpowered character, never with the underpowered one and from time to time - with the average one. And in Freedom Force - you play with all of them, and they all are extremely fun!
This game is worth every cent, and besides - it's cheap. It's a bit short though, but you will still have at lease a few hours of nice and pleasurable gaming, especially if you like comic books.
