Summary

Good graphics and plot, but not enough real "Freelancing."

The Good

The graphics on this game are pretty good. Each system that you go to is unique, and there are many different types of missions to take on. The story missions can be long, but are never really hard. The totally unique thing about this game is that they didn't copy ships or forms of transportation from Star Trek or Star Wars like several space games have. They created everything from scratch, so it makes everything more believable.

The Bad

This isn't as opened-ended as the box leads you to believe. You can't join any groups, and the worlds just have five places to go. You can't walk around the streets or anything. Also after you beat the game, there is really nothing left to do. Your only choice is to go from system to system taking on random missions over and over again. There are also some cuss words in here that really didn't help the game at all.

The Bottom Line

This is a good sci - fi game, but not totally open ended. If you find it for twenty bucks buy it, but otherwise don't waste your money.
