Questions of robot rights and dystopian ethics don’t often hit as hard as they do in Freedom Wars, though once they do core combat gameplay loops should have you enslaved.

PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventur Review
Is the entire Ghostly Adventures series, including the TV show, a prequel to the rest of Pac-Man’s life? Because in my childhood I seem to remember Pac having a girlfriend and a kid, not worrying about Pac-puberty.

STORYLINE Approximately 20 years after the events depicted in Deus Ex, the world is only beginning to recover from a catastrophic worldwide depression brought on by technology run amok and a secret conspiratorial war.
The winner-take-all geopolitics of mid-21st century Earth have given way to a struggle over more basic concerns: food, water, reestablishing civil law and cleaning up biological and nano-tech fallout. In this chaotic recovery, several religious and political factions see an opportunity to re-shape a worldwide government to their agendas, understanding that the right moves now could determine the shape of human society for decades - even centuries - to come.
Amidst the debris, the player Alex D. emerges in search the identities of true players behind the power struggles and the source of his own mysterious origins. In a techno-nightmare of the fragile revival or ultimate decimation of human civilization, take part in a dark dramatic struggle to raise the world from it's own ashes.

FEATURES

  • Action-packed first person-perspective adventure with shooter game-play elements.
  • RPG character creation and advancement through choice of nano-tech augmentations and inventory gear.
  • Support for stealth gameplay, with darkness and sound affecting enemy awareness.
  • Variable gameplay - multiple solutions to problems and support for varying stylistic approaches.

  • Real world locations, allowing the player to engage in a globe-hopping adventure, visiting Red Square, Seattle, London and other interesting places.
  • Highly interactive environments - everything in the game world has some interesting (and potentially unforeseen) effect. The player has agency…he can reach out, alter the world around him and see the effects of his actions.
