Edit
Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare is set in a chaos filled world occupied by battling factions, bandits and warlords who seek to rule the world. The game is about your career as a faction leader: Start with minimal assets, you need to make money, build an army, wage wars against other factions and eliminate your rival forces with thoughtful strategies and fine marksmanship and eventually conquer the world. The game provides a completely different shooter experience which strikes a balance between intense first-person action and general strategy. The game's innovative combat system blends tactical FPS with real-time strategy, allowing you to command an army, plan for tactics in the God view, while immersing in the intense firefight as a foot soldier, in the first person perspective. Start your career with almost nothing, you must make money, recruit soldiers, loot villages, fight bandits, attack territories and dominate the world. The game is a combination of challenging action and a wider strategic theater.

I don't recommend buying the game *now* unless you're aware it's classic eurojank and prepared to deal with that. Imagine Mount & Blade: Warband without any of the patches. It's a very fun concept, but buggy as hell right now.
I DO recommend coming back and checking in a year or so. Chuck it in your wishlist and let it languish there, because the developers are currently working on rebuilding the whole game and when they finish, Steam will be much more likely to let you know that its had a major update by displaying it on the storefront for you.

There are a two things to address:
1. Is the game abandoned? Not at all, it's just that most reviewers aren't looking past the steam news for development updates. There's only three guys working on rebuilding the game from the ground up (They started this work sometime in April 2021), so it will take some time for the rework to come to fruition. That said, if you're looking for just the new version experience, I would recommend waiting to buy it until then, unless you want to support the developers financially.
2. The current (old) version: Do I recommend it? Despite a lot of bugs and lack of polish, I do. It's a fun game to sink some hours into now and again, and shooting down bands of looters and pirates with your squads is an entertaining killfest that is reminiscient of Mount and Blade, but with guns and modern politics/skill trees. If you have $25 to spare, this is definitely a solid choice that could (and for me, did) easily fulfill my personal expectations of at least one hour of entertaining play time per dollar spent.

It's ok but could have been better. Best thing to do is to get ARMA 3 and Overthrow Plus, Vindicta, FIght Back, or Antistasi Community Edition off of the workshop. That has multiplayer, vehicles, and better weapon handling.

Review from Steam

Most common comparison is to M&B and it's not an unfair one honestly. It's fun and definitely screams low budget as far as presentation goes, but the game is generally fun and gives you the same kind of positive feedback loop that makes M&B so addicting. The game in its current state is definitely playable but a bit buggy no doubt as far as the ai behavior in combat. Where it differentiates itself from M&B that I like quite a lot is the squad customization where you can kit out every member of your army with weapons and gear and it humanizes your army a bit as losing a member of a squad that's high leveled with expensive gear can sting a little. There's also a pre-battle tactics planning phase where you set the routes for your squads to advance along which is a bit bizarre at first but it definitely is helpful once you understand how to use it correctly. New update screenshots look really good and seem to address my personal biggest gripe with the game world in the sense that it doesn't make geographical sense (hot desert, snow and lush plains are all like 1 day's travel apart from one another) and the new towns look pretty nice. These devs have re-worked this game before, and I remember from the days of pre-release that it was a less than 10 person team so it understandably is taking awhile. But don't be fooled, it's definitely a complete enough game as it is to justify the purchase in my opinion, and honestly, even if it takes awhile, a rework is certainly better than them selling it as a sequel or something and the fact that they have continued to try to achieve their vision for what they want this game to be for about 5 years now shows me that they actually care about making the best game they can.

Needs some polish, but, a very fun game and a good concept.

Review from Steam

ignore the review bombing on this game about the devs, if you look at there socials there just hard at work on the game and not news updates, this game has been awesome so far and can only get better with the future, this game also has workshop, so with some extra tools from the devs we all know what the modding community can do

Review from Steam

First I'm going to say that the game is good. It plays like a modern Bannerlord game, just a little clunky. Which I expect that from a game that has a small Dev team like this one. The combat is pretty good, except the sound of the weapons (and all audio) is set way too loud. Being able to see the map while in combat and move your squad size elements around is very helpful. The graphics seem outdated, but I imagine the overhaul would fix that.
Now onto the Overhaul Issue. I don't see this game being dead as some are saying. I believe the Devs are still working on it. Just check their news feed. April 2021 they said they would do an overhaul but it'd take a while. They said they'd update in 6 months. Oct 2021 they gave an update saying development is underway, but it is progressing slowly. I'd wait atleast 6 months from that point before deciding if the Devs gave up or not.
I finally decided to buy this game after it being on my wishlist for years, and I do not regret it. It is playable and enjoyable in its current state. I do hope for an overhaul, but even if it doesn't come at it's current stage I'd give the game a 7/10, with replay value.
