Freedom Fighters

Freedom Fighters


My brother & I have been playing this game a lot over the years. We have this on PS2. We love this game and always wanted to see a PC release. But when we found that there was no multiplayer in the PC version, we were pretty disappointed. We always played multiplayer together even with other friends. I thought about an easy way of implementing co-op. At first, I wanted Bagzton or Isabella to be Player 2. But that didn’t make sense since

! Isabella gets kidnapped and Bagzton never fights. So I came up with something simple: Player 1 recruits a soldier and Player 2 controls that soldier. So, without further ado….

A Quick and Dirty Port of an Old Classic

Intel Core i9 10900K


The game doesn’t have native controller support, so I made some controller configurations. For more on that, look here:


Originally released in the ancient, prehistoric year of 2003, Freedom Fighters tells a story of resistance in an alternate timeline where the USSR beat the United States to the atomic bomb and ended World War II by dropping it upon Berlin. This change of events leads to a much different Cold War, one where the Soviet Union becomes the ascendant global superpower and the United States quickly finds itself weak and alone, surviving only on borrowed time. Against this backdrop, the player takes on the role of New York plumber Chris Stone, whose day-to-day life is shattered by an armed Soviet invasion of the country. With his brother captured and his country occupied, Chris quickly finds that the only way to solve his problems is to engage in that great, time-honored American pastime: murdering Communists.

EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 4.1 The Shadow of New Despair

EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 4.1 The Shadow of New Despair

The premise is cheesy. The dialog is hammy. But ham and cheese has never tasted this good!

Before we continue, let’s get the negatives out of the way so we can focus on talking about how awesome EDF is.

The base price can seem a bit steep given the game’s age, and the highest discount you’ll ever find is 40% off. Yes, it’s a console port. That means enduring some things such as a clunky menu interface and unmappable, hardcoded keybinds. Increasing your arsenal and max health isn’t just tedious, it’s a requirement for the higher difficulties. There’s talk of a cheater problem in public lobbies, and creating a private online game requires you to invite your friends through the chat shortcuts window, of all things. I don’t believe you can invite anyone mid-mission, either. Sometimes there will be so many enemies or explosions on-screen that your framerate will take a very noticeable hit even on a good computer. I don’t think there’s a borderless windowed mode, if that matters to you. Oh, and the game can’t even be launched if you’re on a version of Windows older than 7.

Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair, or more commonly referred to as EDF, is a third person shooter that puts you in the shoes of an unnamed soldier of the Earth Defense Force that is tasked with locating and eradicating giant insects and robots from across the globe. Your mission is simple – kill everything that moves.

You’re given four class options before starting: Ranger, Fencer, Wing Diver or Air Raider. Rangers are your typical versatile infantry class, able to equip a variety of guns, sniper rifles, or a plethora of explosives and specialty weapons. Your next option is the Air Raider, a class that has the ability to call in buffs such as shields, turrets, healing modules and heavy armor, such as tanks, helicopters and a slew of different mechanized vehicles. Your third option is the lightly-armored, agile and swift-moving Wing Diver, an all-female crew of airborne infantry that use energy weapons and jetpacks to quickly move about the battlefield. Your final option is the Fencer, EDF’s dual-wielding tank, comprised of thick armor and massive cannons at the expensive of maneuverability.

Rogue Trooper

Rogue Trooper

Rogue Trooper.

A good video game adaption of a very great comic! Sure, it’s old. Sure, it’s got a few bugs. Sure, it’s got an awful multiplayer mode. But if you want a legitimate “Rogue Trooper” experience, this game is worth buying!



An interesting character. He’s young and feels betrayed. He makes it his life mission to take down the man who exterminated his kind. Pretty straight-forward person, but his ironically-named buddies (biochips stored in his equipment) make playing singleplayer more of a variety. Voice actor was pretty good at playing the character.

A blast from the past. I remember playing it as a child and eventually I grew from it and decided to give it away to a friend. As time passed by, I began to feel regret and begin to miss it. Years pass by and one day, while checking through Steam, I found out Rogue Trooper was finally released onto Steam and I became elated. I bought it and relived my childhood.

Starting with the pros, It’s a very enjoyable and stylistic game with a lot of personality. The maps are unique, have personality, and at times beautiful. The gameplay is fun and flexible. The backstory of Nu Earth and it’s two factions: Norts and Southerns, is interesting and makes you want to learn more about their rivalry and the story about the GIs. As for the soundtrack, it’s decent and kind of catchy for me.

Armed and Dangerous®

Armed and Dangerous®

Armed and Dangerous is a very old and unpolished game. That being said, the gameplay being so simple to pick up and the comedy keeping itself fresh until the very end keeps this old gem in the positive thoughts of my mind to this day.


1. Simple controls - difficult level design. It’s really just a third-person click and shoot with some clever and funny weapon designs later. At first, I was worried that the game would be a cakewalk, but even on the medium difficulty I found myself constantly looking for cover, taverns to heal, and reloading my game a number of times.

Adequate Gameplay, Hilarious Comedy

Whenever I think of a flaw in this game to criticize, I immediately remember that there’s a gun which shoots sharks and forget what my criticism was. Watching enemies being devoured when a shark leaps out of the dirt below them never ceases to be hilarious. That said, I wish there were more comedy guns like that, and less of the standard aresenal of assault rifle, sniper rifle, and comedically-shaped-but-otherwise-normal-rocket-launchers.

The standard third-person shooting gameplay is probably the most disappointing aspect of Armed and Dangerous. Other than the shark gun, most of the weapons function like guns in any other game, even if they’re shaped like a tuba and fire exploding musical notes. This is kind of a shame, because the devs clearly knew how to make comedy, as the cutscenes and aforementioned sharkgun can attest to. That being said, the shooting is competent

Humor is on par

Graphics are decent

Very good story

High replay value

Easy to learn hard to master controls very reminiscent of the Metroid Prime series


The only cons i experienced are both related to the difficulty but oh boy they will definitively tarnish your experience

First, the difficulty in-game is absolutely inconsistent you’ll blaze through most of the level and then die 20 times at that one part and only through ridiculous luck will you get past it (Attack of the Stone Angels for example) the difficulty is a flatline most of the time and then spikes into the obscene

Title: Vanquish

Developer(s): Platinum Games

Publisher(s): Sega

Genre(s): Action, third-person shooter

Game Engine: Havok

Release Date: 25 May, 2017

Mode(s): Single-player


+ Merits:

If you are in a hurry and want to play a video game expeditiously, then I recommend Vanquish. It’s a relentless, fast-paced game that will fill-up your adrenaline to the maximum level with its intensive gameplay. Combine Bayonetta with Gears of War, and you will have something that resembles Vanquish, a fast-moving, cover-based shooter with some QTEs. From the third-person perspective, you control Sam Gideon, a guy augmented with a cool battle suit that’s powered by a portable reactor. It gives him post-human capabilities and grants us a stupendous warfare experience with its boosted slide and slow-motion mechanism.

At first blush, Vanquish is another third person cover-based shooter. But if you’re familiar with those deranged perverts over at Platinum Games, you should be instantly suspicious. This is a studio who is concerned primarily with making new IPs with new gameplay paradigms, and Vanquish is no exception.

Many reviewers have already discussed the general premise of the game, so I will spare you those details except to remind you that Vanquish is about Big Boss fighting robots in space using a rocket-powered mecha suit; he shoots, he slides on the floor like an idiot, he slows down time. Instead, I want to address the core philosophy behind this game (as I see it) and explain why I find it fun.

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon



WHAT TO EXPECT: Third-person shooter. Japanese disaster movie setting. Titanic battles vs arachnid style aliens. Starship Troopers feel. Limited campaign with short missions. Survival and dynamic campaign+ extend play. Dated but passable graphics. Really good soundtrack. Fun but repetitive gameplay. Only four classes. Tons of unlockable weapons with some variation. Average voice-acting. Very grindy achievements. Badly designed survival mode which no one playing. Very slow levelling.

“When you get to hell, tell them the EDF sent ya!”

TL;DR- In spite of all its flaws, and even in the face of a better EDF alternative on the PC, Insect Armageddon still remains an enjoyable shooter that can still deliver many hours of funtimes. Wanna run around and shoot big bugs - this is not a bad game to do so in.

As a quick primer for the uninitiated, Earth Defense Force is a series of third person shooters, developed by Japanese studio Sandlot, which puts players in large fully-destructible levels, equips them with hundreds of wildly different weapons and faces them off against overwhelming numbers of giant insects, UFOs and giant robots. It is beloved by its fans for its fun, frantic gameplay, the ridiculous scale of many of the battles, the ludicrous variety of weapons and the endearingly camp tone of its story and presentation. I am one of these fans, and I absolutely adore these games, having played through EDF 2, 3 and 4.

Binary Domain

Binary Domain

Binary Domain was yet another part of a (free) bundle given away by SEGA, featuring mediocre games mainly. When I started playing it, I was expecting an average shooter (the reviews didn’t provide much clue). What I got was an absolutely positive surprise in all aspects. But I’m not explaining this fact that I liked this game so much with the element of surprise: I wish every overhyped AAA game could provide as much fun as Binary Domain did. It has everything a good game needs: a thrilling story, excellent characters and funny (!) dialogues, choices & consequences and of course great combat with fluid controls. This is one of those games that would require a sequel, but apparently won’t get one, since the game never received the proper amount of praise and appreciation it should have deserved.

Binary Domain is a Third-Person-Shooter with a cover system set in the future after catastrophic events led the world to some major changes.

In 2080, due to climate changes, the world faced the large flood ever existed, and in search for cheap, reliable labor, the humanity turned to robots, in hope for a better future. To lead this revolution is Bergen, a US-based company, responsible for manufacturing robots for all over the world. But Bergen is not the only one in the business. Amada, a Japanse company, sued Bergen for stealing their technology. Bergen won, much because of its influence… They do manufacture over 90% of world robots, and this made the USA more powerful than ever!

“Anyone can make what I have built

And better now

Anyone can find the same white pills

It takes my pain away” 🎶

~Jimmy Eat World, Pain

OMG, that’s not Max Payne! #NotMyMax” Remember such topics from back in 2012? It was pretty fun. Surprisingly, though, quite a lot of people (yours truly included) kinda… didn’t even feel like playing this game back then. And not because they were triggered or something like that, but because… you know. I mean, look at the screenshots. Another random bald guy shooting some generic gangsters. In Brazil. There’s literally nothing that screams “Play me right now!!!” in that. Especially since we already had one popular series that went down the drain since the moment the main character shaved his head (hello, Sam…). Even though I bought Max Payne 3 ages ago, I was like “meh…”. A lot of people I know felt the same. And that’s the funniest (saddest?) thing about this game. See, Max Payne 3? It was supposed to be a shiny big present to the old-school fans.

One of the best 3rd person shooters you’ll ever play. The story is amazing, I keep coming back to it time and time again and it never gets old. The multiplayer can be fun, if you can find anyone to play with. The action is amazing and gore is just the same. Recommend that you play on harder difficulties for a fun challenge, the only problem I have is that its a bit too hard and in the later levels you’ll be wielding 2 pistols while your enemies will have grenade launchers, machine guns and much more. Overall a great game.

Dark Sector

Dark Sector is a game by Digital Extremes Ltd. In it, you play as a military spy named Hayden Tenno who travels to russia to stop the spread of an infection that a bioterrorist is spreading and ends up infected himself. Due to a mental conidition, he feels no pain from the disease and doesn’t turn into a crazed monster like other victims. His arm also spawns him a glaive, a weapon you’ll probably be using a lot in the game no doubt. As Hayden progresses, his mutation advances and he gains new powers.

This reviewers only say “If you love Warframe then you’re gonna like this game.”, Well I was one of the people that bought Dark Sector when it got released(It was actually the first game I ever purchased, so it has a special place in my heart).

And when I first saw something about Warframe I was like “Holy S-! This looks a lot like Dark Sector.” Because the image had an Excalibur and Grineers that look similar to the Lasrian guys with the protective suit.

So in other words, if you Like Resident Evil 4, Mutations, Third Person Shooters, you’re gonna like this game.
