All across the internet these days, whenever one hears mention of Fall of Liberty, one will also inevitably hear a resounding calamity rising from a sea of men in their early thirties shouting, “Yes! It’s like Red Dawn!” These men, who make up the bulk of the gaming press these days, are wrong. The game shares only a few characteristics with that movie. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t be subjected to their ramblings stemming from unfulfilled desires to form their own chapter of the Wolverines and fight off Russian invaders.

Since I fear that I am the last of my kin (read: games writers who didn’t grow up dreaming of Red Dawn,) I feel I need to set the record straight. First of all, Red Dawn was about Russian invaders; Fall of Liberty is about Nazi invaders. Red Dawn is about high school kids rebelling against would-be occupiers. FoL seems to be about an average Joe who fights back. Anyways, you get the idea.

This trailer might as well be a batch of concept art, because it doesn’t really show off any gameplay information except that it takes place in New York. (Which reminds me, Red Dawn took place in the mountainous regions of Colorado in modern day. FoL looks like it takes place in the Bronx in the 50’s.) Still, there’s nothing like the thought of a foreign invader to get an American all riled up. Can anyone say World in Conflict?
