    Space combat diamond in the ruff.

    WHAT?!?! 6?!?! This game deserves a whole lot more. It's one of my personal favorites.

    What's up with the high player reviews? This is NOT the best in the series, you guys have no experience with this genre.

    A game that could have been revolutionary because of the freedom it granted its players, but met demise due to BUGS!!

    I had such a love-hate relationship with this game. When I first played it, I couldn't believe the amount of freedom I was alloted. Never before had I played a game that just allowed me to either pl...

    This game was a fun experience, despite a few annoyances.

    Rated on March 21, 2007 by Impulse1195

    Privateer 2: The Darkening is definately one of the games I remember very clearly, despite having played it nearly 10 years ago. This is because it offered up a lot of things I hadnt yet seen in the s...

    I think Gamespot has has done wrong with this game. 6.8..?!!??! <br /> Nope, cannot agree with that.

    Rated on December 12, 2005 by liorde

    I think it deserves more than what it got here... Considering the time it was released, I honestly think this game is a gem in the rough. Sure it is not as polished as you would expect from a game th...
