Freespace 2 is one of those timeless classics that never get old. Of course it's not perfect, no game is. I'm not a huge fan of number of Nebula missions in the game. Yes they are awesome but 2 or 3 less Nebula missions would've been nice. Overall,,, it's still a rock solid game (9.5-10/10)
Even if you don't own Joystick, the game controls extremely well even if you are only using your Keyboard. The atmosphere is fantastic, sound effects are awesome, story is entertaining, graphics still look pretty good and explosion effects are just... PHENOMENAL. The game features branching paths, multiple endings and epic space battles.
The game already looked great but there are mods that make the game look even better. There are also total conversion mods for the game (Battlestar: Galactica for example). The improvements these mods bring, are just unbelievable. I can write walls of text telling you what to expect from Freespace 2 and why it's so awesome and a must play, but I'll leave this here instead.
Freespace 2 Revisited
Modded version (Epic Space Battle):
Go and buy the game now. You won't regret it. A lot of things in this game even inspired games like Mass Effect. While Squadron 42 might surpass it in the near future, so far this is the best Space game out there in my opinion.
