The HD remake that was never made

Seeing as how there is a trend of remastering classic games, I am really surprised that this game hasn't made the list. Am I the only one that thought this game was way ahead of its time?

To see an remastering of this masterpiece with coop lobbies on steam would be the only wish I'd need granting this entire decade. I miss this game. Even its well deserved sequel was cancelled long ago.
Freedom Fighters...gone but not forgotten.

not forgotten because who f***ing played freedom fighters?

Really? You didn't play it? All the more reason for there to be remaster so the ignorant masses can be educated in quality gaming

If it was quality it wouldn't need a "remaster", that's for the peasants and scrubs.

You can already play the game in hd and pc titles shouldn't be labelled 'hd' remake it should just be called a remake. So who is the ignorant one now?

It would be called an HD remaster because the original was a multiplat game out on ps2 and xbox. If there is a 'remaster' it would also come out on consoles because of it and since the consoles out today are HD and the original was on SD consoles, the remaster will be called an HD remaster.

Man you guys missed out. Freedom Fighters was actually a pretty cool game. Basically the story is that Russians invade New York and a couple of plumbers chase the koopas ... no wait... lemme start over.

Russians invade New York. A couple of plumbers manage to lead the revolution against the Russians and you had to go around recruiting people to help, and then you had to give orders to the people you recruited to fight the enemy. You couldn't do it by yourself and you couldn't control the other guys.

The only thing that would have made it cooler is if you could use a mic to give the commands instead of having to hit buttons.

Here's a video of the game in question:

The beauty of PCs is that if enough people care, the "HD remakes" make themselves. Want DooM in 4K, 21:9, HD textures, engine updates, ten billion goddamn maps, all for free? Wish granted, people love DooM and always will so it will continue to be maintained by the fans.

It's almost like people are proud of their ignorance regarding a classic game.

Freedom Force. Excellent game. Go educate yourself and play it.
