Freedom Fighters is a shooter game that was initially released in 2003. The game is played in third-person perspective. The player takes the role of Christopher Stone, a plumber who turns to fighting in opposition to the invaders. The game takes place in an alternate history wherein the city of New York has been occupied by the Red Army.
In the game, the player has to travel through the different locations in New York and fight off the Soviet army. One of the main goals in the game is to increase the charisma level. Charisma can be gained by doing different tasks, such as eliminating supplies, moving against the Soviet forces, and taking over bases. The charisma level is important as this is the basis for recruiting more members. The player can have up to 12 soldiers in the team. These soldiers can be controlled by the player so they can perform basic tasks, such as defend, follow, and attack. However, soldiers are capable of doing tasks by themselves the majority of the time.
Freedom Fighters also has multiplayer mode. In this game mode, the main goal of the player is to protect bunkers and flags in different locations. Multiplayer mode is only available for the Xbox, PlayStation 2, and the GameCube.
