Top 100 Games Reviewer

Up until this game I was never a fan of any space games, but then it all changed. It's action filled, fast paced gameplay was instantly addictive. The graphics are good and space is perfectly done, filled with colour and detail. The storyline is gripping and moves in a different direction when you think you know whats going on. The control are really easy to pick up on a well which makes it easier when it comes to the large scale fights nearer the end. The only downside would be the time taken to return from some smaller misisons but thats easily sorted with the auto-pilot. With a price tag this low everyone should get it.

Basically space has never been so much fun.

 Amazing!

Such an amazing game! Great story line, amazing visual space environment, good graphics for the time (still pretty good tbh). The game play is just overall so much fun from the combat, controls etc.

You can either play the story line or go off on your own way and just explore the hundreds of space stations and planets.

The best space game ive ever played! And believe me ive played a dam lot. :D

 brilliant limited game

i love this game to bits its probably one of only a few games in existance i can play without any problem. it is very rare for microsoft to create such a gem of a game, but without a doubt its really good to spend hours messing around shooting out cargo pods on large frieght trains and tractoring in the loot and selling it off at a big price.

it has a good storyline albeit very short, the story is about a transport pilot whos ship was destroyed on freeport 7 (FP7) by unknown attackers suspected to be order operatives only to find out the unknown attackers were not the order.

the reason the limited word in the title is because, there is only so much you can do on this game, there are mods and such you can download but half of them really work well and the other half crash the game to the desktop.

anyhow, it is a good game to play.. also to be aware.
Microsoft shut down the freelancer server however their is another server online i suggest you check it out and follow the instructions if you wish to play online.

 Fantastic game

Trult open ended gameplay,Once youve completed the storyline missions you still have a universe to explore and its up to you how you want play.
There is also a community of modders out there continually adding new servers and star systems and ships to the multiplayer servers adding even more scope for exploration.

 The only spacw sim worth buying

With so much stuff in such a vast universe this game really is great. The story is great and the multi player is to. I have spent many hours playing this game and still enjoy it to date. I have never enjoyed other space sim's that much mainly because of there dodgy control schemes but the one used in freelancer works a charm. You can choose to trade, freelance, pirate or a little of all but whichever path you take you know it will be fun and adventurous. Exploring the stunning environments and finding new location is as well very rewarding. A fun game. A cheap price. Worth the purchase? Defiantly!
