I know I'm really late, but I got this campaign yesterday and just completed it.
It must say, it's great!
The real-time stuff was so cool, the way you implimented the story was brilliant, and what a great story it was. At points I really felt for the characters and was worried for them, and that is really
hard to do.
That bit where you get thrown into the debris field and have to leave your friend behind, when going into the node and emerging into the nebula, I felt like I was truely alone and breathed a sigh of relif when a couple of friendlies showed up. Not many games will get a reaction like that from me.
Yes, it left a lot of things unanswered, but I like that, you people act as if you've never played Freespace.
The missions were pretty easy, the most times I died were from rogue beams or bomb shockwaves. But you know, that's okay because in my opinion the campaign was driven by it's story and it delivered.
The ending, if that was it I would be really angry about the sudden ending, but I'm not, it's okay because we know there are two more parts. But you just better damn deliver because I can not wait. Hehehe...
So all in all, massive thumbs up. It's competing with Derelict for my fave campaign right now.
