Summary

Now I hate myself for not playing Freespace 1

The Good

Just about everything. The game is probably the greatest looking game I have seen. The music fits in the game perfectly. The HUD (Head up display) of the game is simple yet contains very much information. The tutorials are great. Added together the tutorials would take maybe 2 hours but they are wisely spread around the campaign. Some people have complained about the AI (not very much though) but I didn't have any problems with it. The story is great. It was quiet fun to understand the Great War (which happened in the Freespace 1 which I did not buy, silly me).

The Bad

I would like to see the newtonian physics used in this type of games. But I guess the game would have got too complex.

The Bottom Line

Buy this game if you haven't already. A great game in the tradition of X-wing etc.
