What Gamespot Users have to say about Descent: Freespace - Silent Threat

  • User Rating:8.7

    Good, for an expansion.

    First off this is an add-on so you have to have the original game. The content is good but there's too few. There are two new ships and three new weapons. The leech cannon is joke and the Loki fighter is too weak. The mi... Read Full Review

    If you liked Freespace then this is more of the same great space shooter action, but that last mission...ouch!

    Nothing wrong with an expansion pack that builds on one of the greatest space sim shooters of all time. You get more of the great visuals (even by today's standards) and good old fashioned space fighter action. The las... Read Full Review

    Gameplay: Definently not as good as its original, you're put into service with Galactic Terran Intelligence (GTI) to do the dirty work and all that, but it just doesn't work with a space fighter game, basically instead o... Read Full Review

    This poor mission pack makes you appreciate just how polished the main Freespace campaign is.

    Silent Threat on the surface features a decent story and a great set of features. Unfortunately, both are tremendous letdowns. Everything in this pack is notch below Freespace. The poor voice acting is the first thing yo... Read Full Review

    The only good space flight sim.

    If you want to play a good space sim game then this is the one and only one to get. The graphics are great especially for something made back in 1998. The gameplay is fairly difficult and really challenges you to play be... Read Full Review

    There isn't much new content other than a lot of fairly decent missions.

    FreeSpace: Silent Threat doesn't really do much to add to FreeSpace other than give up a bunch of new missions, along with an okay singleplayer campaign. The Silent Threat campaign is a very difficult one and one that... Read Full Review

    Great, but could've been better....

    Silent Threat is overall satisfying expansion pack. It does feel a little cut, though. The missions themselves are an interesting variety of the normal Freespace missions, and you get to do "silence all rebels" sort of... Read Full Review
