Over on EG there's a Freedom Fighters retrospective.

I absolutely bloody loved this game and played it through several times. While it would be an exaggeration to say it was ahead of its time or unique, it nonetheless felt fresh and different enough on the PS2 / xbox, with its recruitment / squad mechanic, engagingly vertical semi-open levels, surprising twists as the game progressed, and pretty sturdy production values, including a great score by Jesper Kyd.

The article makes me want to dig out and play it again. I bet I'd be disappointed...

I loved FF, it was my game of the show (shared with Far Cry I suppose) at the one ECTS I ever attended. Spent ages on the demo stand, no-one else seemed to want to try it.

Played and loved the game when it finally came out, shame Io and Eidos haven't done anything more with it.

Great game, really should've had a revival by now.
