    Pros: Unbelievable Graphics and Game Play, Fantastic Ambient Sound.
    Cons: Hardware intensive.

    Summary: The year was 1979. 'Home Computers' wasn't even a term yet. Video games were in their infancy - literally. Most of the games coming out were derivatives of Pong, or Space Invaders or Asteroids... But along ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sound, Gameplay, Graphics, basically everything.
    Cons: Has more lagging, some missions almost to difficult, and can get choppy during large battles.

    Summary: Freespace 2 is fun, encompassing, and robust space-combat game. The gameplay is similiar to first one but much more refined. In fact, it's in my opinion one of the best playing 3D combat games around. Despite the fact that it's been a few years since ... read more

    Cons: no graphic engine improvement from original.

    Pros: Great interface, excellent gameplay, amazing graphics
    Cons: Some missions are too difficult

    Summary: Freespace 2 is a fun, encompassing, and robust space-combat game. The gameplay is similiar to games of the Wing Commander series, but much deeper and refined. In fact, it's probably one of the best playing 3D combat games around. And despite the fact ... read more

    Cons: not THAT original

    Aug 15, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Unbelievable graphics, realistic sound effects, hours upon hours of fun.
    Cons: Heavy on computer resources.

    Summary: I am a big fan of flight simulation games, especially those in which you get to shoot other planes down. So I tried Star Wars Rogue Squadron and other weak flight simulation games, but none of them really amazed me enough to say "WoW." But one day I ... read more

    Pros: Super sexy graphics and rich sound. Great storyline and very entertaining.
    Cons: Missions take long to load if you have a mashine with recommened specs.

    Summary: Freespace 2 is in a world of its own when it comes to excitement in video games. The most enlightening aspect of the game other than the sweet graphics, sound, and controls are the voice overs done during the combat sequences. Its great to be given ... read more

    Pros: Sweet graphics, easy controls, VERY intuitive.
    Cons: No real changes from the first in terms of gameplay. Tedious at times.

    Summary: The first time I played Freespace 2 was in a demo which included 2 missions, one in each enviorment. I must have played the demo 20 times ove because the graphics were just amazing. Then I go out and try to find the game. No luck. I see Freespace 1, ... read more

    Pros: Great graphics, great game play.
    Cons: Short game, expensive.

    Summary: When I got my new computer, it came with a demo of FreeSpace 2. It was the best space game I had ever played, with great graphics and sound. I went to a store to get a price check, it was reasonable. I go home, install the game (Wow, three CDs! That ... read more

    Pros: Good Game. Get if your system will run it.
    Cons: Some missions too hard. AI needs some work.

    Summary: I loved this game- most of the 2 months that it took me to get through it. The only downside is that the friendly AI is weak- extremely weak. Also some of the missions are extremely difficult even on the 'very easy' difficulty. This is ... read more

  • The Worst Game Ever! (Not Really, but close)

    Feb 4, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The graphics and sound are absolutely amazing!
    Cons: No story line what-so-ever.

    Summary: This is a horrible sequel to Freespace. There is no action, and as the story progresses, you are sent on one bombing mission after another. In addition, what story there is in quite bland and cookie cutter. The game is indeed a visual delight, ... read more

    Pros: Everything.....
    Cons: ....except multi-player.

    Summary: Volition dam well knew it was a bad idea to mess with a good thing. In fact, it was beyong good, it was sacred. Descent: Freespace was such a kick a$$ game that when I was done with it, I just kind of sulked back into and heaved a sigh that indicated ... read more

    Pros: Beautiful graphics, interesting story, great voice acting and sound effect and all around interstellar fun
    Cons: A little lackluster in the story because of a lack of personality, FMV's a little on the poor side

    Summary: When Origin first released Wing Commander, it proved a groundbreaking game, pushing the limits of the PC and bringing about a new experience in interactive entertainment. I loved it. Finally, a sim game that didn't suffer from poor, boring ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It was created, distributed and reviewed by me.
    Cons: If there were some, they'd be here. But since there's none....

    Summary: Star Wars, Star Trek, Allegiance, Wing Commander, Titan A.E. and Apollo 13 can all move the hell over. The FreeSpace Universe is now the current "Sci-Fi Everything" champion of the world. If a grade of 20 out of 5 were possible, I'd give it to ... read more

    Cons: Cons? What Cons?

    Summary: I originally didn't think much of this game when I first bought it. I never played the first Decent: Freespace game, so I had no idea what I was really getting into with this one. I got it mainly because a few friends of mine got the game and according ... read more

    Cons: Nebula missions and Capital ships

    Summary: I'm a big fan of the original Freespace game. So when Freespace 2 came out I bought it. The graphics are great and the action is good. The ships take a little getting used to. I've found that I don't like it as well as Freespace. ... read more
