GameSpy gushes over Freedom Force vs. the Third Reich

GameSpy's review of Irrational's Freedom Force vs the Third Reich, the Nazi stompin' superhero RPG, is up. They rate it 4.5 out of 5.

While good writing, art design, and presentation are no substitute for solid gameplay fundamentals, if you take a good game and wrap it in an appealing package, the entire game ends up becoming much more than the sum of its parts. Irrational Games clearly understands this concept, because Freedom Force vs. The Third Reich, the sequel to 2002's Freedom Force, is a classic example of it. What do you get when you take really solid squad-based real-time tactical gameplay and wrap it in a well-written, well-designed send-up of Silver Age comic books? You get an incredibly fun title that's a joy to play.​
Yeah, good presentation really is key to making a game fun, easily moreso than having the flashiest graphics. Another thing that helps is that FFvtTR is about as bug-free as it gets. When a self-funded independent developer can test its own game this well, it puts the quality control at bigger companies to shame.
