    Note: this review is based solely on the single player experience and contains no input on the mp section of the game. Freelancer is definitely comparable to old school Privateer. Privateer was one of the games that g... Read Full Review

    Not what I expected from the descendant of Privateer I & II. If I knew nothing of the ancestory of this game I would really enjoy it and have no problems with it what so ever. Gamplay, graphics, soundtrack are all top n... Read Full Review

    Freelancer is amazing!

    I love space. I didn't play a lot of space sims in my life. After playing colony wars in the PSX, I was really eager for something as much as good, and damn Freelancer delivered that. The graphics are stunning. A vas... Read Full Review

    It’s been a few years now since the Space Combat genre died. Well it didn't die as such, it just got replaced, as most genres do in the games industry. A few games come out now and again, but it’s a far cry from the X-Wi... Read Full Review

    What a great game. First, the graphics knock your socks off, easily the best in the genre so far, which is no mean feat considering just how long this thing has been in development. Space is huge and beautiful, and the u... Read Full Review

    Really good game. The static nature of the universe is more than made up for with the fun and involving campaign storyline. You feel like you are part of this big war that is affecting the whole system, and its not a gam... Read Full Review

    One of the best space sims in existence

    I don't think I've ever played a game where I wanted a sequel more than I did at the end of Freelancer. It has something to do with the campaign being a little too short, but mostly it's just because it's a great game. ... Read Full Review

    Like it or hate it, it's GTA in space...

    Freelancer in a nut shell: It's like GTA; it plays like GTA; you'll hate it because it's similar to GTA; you'll love it because it's similar to GTA. I never really heard of this title, except few small praises from my... Read Full Review

    One of those less known exceptional games you might not have played...

    I started playing this game as I was looking back at old PC games, looking for quality, looking for a classic I had yet to enjoy yet. Fortunately I found one. I had this game recommended to me. Pros - Huge o... Read Full Review
