FREEDOM FORCEReviewed By: Rick St Jean
VOLUNTEER GUEST REVIEWER
Genre: Roleplaying Game (RPG)
This game captures the love, light-heartedness and fun of comics and their heros in the silver age of comics. The 1960's. The bad guys are the commies (because they were the villains of the era). The story is fun, tasteful and done in a true comic book manner. Violence is almost not noticeable, since your heros are running around, balloon smacks and cracks appear as your heros knock out the bad guys. There is no blood, no killing, no cursing of any form… only subduing and knocking out the villains.
There are only two points that a Christian may have a problem with:
The plot is interesting and mostly inoffensive. The characters reflect the comic genre and game play. “Freedom Force” is quite simple. The graphics are wonderful with a Direct3d card.
I really recommend this to Christian gamers, especially in the wake of the majority of what is out there. It doesn't build up one's faith or promote Jesus at all, (a difficult thing to do in a game), but it doesn't hurt it either.
Year of Release—2002
