Classic Game of the Month Review: Freedom
Published: March 1, 2001
"Those who are about to rock salute you."
I won't easily forget this quote, which is the opening sentence of the game. This leads you to the introduction, of a young man falling down, accompanied by a beautiful text about freedom.
kev-san himself described Freedom as a rock opera, which suits the game well. It's full of deep thoughts and beautiful ZZT music (as far as ZZT music can be beautiful).
The graphical remake is also a good improvement over the original, since Blue Magus has provided the extremely original game with amazing artwork, that is true Anthony Testa style.
Freedom gives you something to think about and something to listen to while thinking about it. In my opinion, it's definitely one of the best artistical ZZT games. And by saying that, I don't mean to say it has the best graphics remember that art isn't all about graphics. The dialogue is as important as the accompannying art and music.
If you haven't given this game a try yet, it may be a good idea to do so once, unless you don't like to watch instead of play.
