Allright, I have been thinking about this old game for a while now, I had some fun with it when I first played it, but then I encountered a bug and would have had to start all over again, so instead, I took it back to EB and they gave me something else.

Thing is, I have kinda been wanting to play it for a while now.  Even though it was a bit buggy.

It was made by the old Red Storm game company, and it was about aliens who had conquered the planet, and you play a woman who reluctantly joins the resistance and fights the aliens.  It was more of an adventure game than an action game, as I recall, and although some of it was bad, I still kinda liked it.

Anyone have any idea what game I am talking about?

Ahh yes, Freedom: First Resitance.  That is the name of it.

As for why anyone would want to play it, I am somewhat.... "quirky".  Sometimes I enjoy the hell out of a game no one else likes.  For instance, I really loved Project Eve.  I played it from start to finish, and loved every minute of it.

I tried to get a friend of mine to play Project Eve through with me, and after 4.5 minutes of it he just looked at me, as if to say "We aren't friends anymore dude. Perhaps you could leave now."

I do remember that OMM review.  I also remember (with the help of OMM) the strange monitor noises, and the stupid way of reloading after death.  And still I hope to find a copy of it somewhere.

If you do play it, let us know how long it takes before it BLOWS UP YOUR MONITOR.   :lol:

odd, we must be the only people on the planet who liked project eve.  funny enough, i got the same look too from my friend when we tried playing it together.  i think we ended up playing tribes 2 instead.

I don't have a CRT monitor any more, it will be ... interesting ... to see what happens when Freedom First Resistance puts my Flatscreen through its paces...

I sure hope it doesn't blow it up.  But if it does, I will have an excellent excuse for buying a newer, better flatscreen.

As for people not liking Project Eve, I have noticed that when I play with my friends, most of them would rather compete with me and try to kill me than play a game where we work together to accomplish goals.  The only exception to this rule were the Rainbow Six games.  We had fun playing together against the computer, but I think even that was (for them) a competition to see who would be the last player standing...

Personally, I prefer working with my friends, and not trying to kill each other.  I have never enjoyed competition.  I have never cared if I was better at something than one of my friends, and it infuriates me when I am lousy at something, and they inevitably rub it in.

How come I can find any links to Project Eve?If it's a quirky Sci-Fi game, I might like it, too.

Well.... Perhaps it is because I am a moron, and I called it Project Eve, when it is in fact, Project Eden.  :oops:   An older Eidos game.

I see copies of it all the time down at my EB.

Perhaps, armed with the correct name of the game, future searches for information will provide results.

Man, how I remember laughing at this review.

And, in short, for anybody else who thinks that making games out of books is a good idea - don't.

Unless your name is Tom Clancy, anyway.

Well, if you haven't been dissuaded yet, you can find F:FR here:

They actually have a lot of older PC games dirt-cheap; you might wish to scan their listings for other games to take the sting off shipping costs.

And now I wash my hands of this affair entirely...   Cool

Today, my copy of Freedom First Resistance came in...

Now, do I dare install it and run it?  Will my monitor BLOW UP?

I don't know if I should do it or not.
