General Information

Available on:Nintendo SwitchJun 2, 2020
PC

Developer: Atomic Wolf

Publisher: Walkabout Games

Genres: Adventure, Action

The award-winning, visionary new take on digital comics Liberated is an action-adventure game that unfolds across the pages of a comic book. Seamlessly merging the art of hand-drawn graphic novels with interactivity and side-scrolling action, it’s a revolutionary combination of video games and comics. Freedom is a matter of perspective In this near-future dystopia, the eerily familiar always-online society gives way to complete government control—all in the name of safety. But in the midst of it all, an insurgent group known as “Liberated” rises. What is Liberated? Side-scrolling action Intense adventure brimming with gunfights, stealth, puzzles and platforming action. Cyberpunk Near-future Social networks, facial recognition, fake news, citizen credit systems. A familiar world in which technology empowers control over the people. Order & Revolution A story of authoritarianism—how it is born in a democracy and consumes it. Liberated men and women rise against the new world order, but at what cost? Multiple Perspectives A dramatic story told through unique points of view. Play as individuals locked in a clash of ideals. This is not a simple tale of good versus evil, you must witness what transpires from many points of view to parse the truth.

Liberated wants to be a playable V for Vendetta, but despite a beautiful hand-drawn art style, it can't match the quality of its inspirations.

Liberated's comic gameplay style works very well and the game provides some good entertainment. However, the story and characters are not as well explored as they could have been. If you like political thrillers, then this could scratch that itch for a few hours.

I respect what the developers were going for and think the comic look is still cool, even if it is a bit lacking in other areas. The game works decently, in terms of mechanics. I can just think of plenty of other games you'd probably rather play more than this one. If you're in the mood for a relatively quick cyberpunk-tinged romp, though, Liberated isn't the worst you could do.

Liberated's distinct, comic book style adds atmosphere to its simple, fun action. It's just a shame that it's so plagued by technical issues, particularly on Nintendo Switch.
