Games like Freespace?
« on: July 13, 2005, 12:55:54 AM »
Hmm, I was wondering if anyone knew any games like freespace.  You know, ships, adjustable shields, space fighting, okay story.  I've been searching and haven't found anygame like it.  Of course, a compliment for freespace but sometimes I just want to jump into an active working Multi-Player.  Star Trek: Bridge Commander came close, but there's no customization and you can't adjust your shields or outfit weapons and such, and that's a dieing multiplayer thought there's still a game or two at all times.

Anyway what I'm asking is if anyone knows any game like freespace with a good multiplayer.  I just wanna fly around and shoot stuff ^^

Weeeeeell, I don't know what you've played before, but there's the X-Wing Series, the Wing Commander series, Starlancer, Freelancer, and there's also a few other indie space sims, although I don't know any of them off hand.

Xwing and TieFighter are about it as far as this specific genre goes. Both great games. I have the floppy editions for both :)

XCOM, WingCommander. And if your up for a multi-platform game try X2 The threat. its not like Freespace 2 but its space related.

Darth, I'll put it simple, do not post in any thread that is older then a few weeks, unless you are the thread starter.

When it's on the 5th page, don't check : it's too old.

There's the Colony Wars series,3 games for PlayStation.
FreeSpace has certanilty copied many things from it,like the destruction of the Sol node.
