What other space sims do you play? (Did you used to play?)
Other than FS, of course.

I am a big fan of the X-wing series, especially X-wing Alliance. I don't really know other space sims, though.

What about you?

TIE Fighter. The alpha, and the omega. If you haven't played it, you're not a space-sim fan.

Re: What other space sims do you play? (Did you used to play?)
X-Wing
TIE Fighter
X-Wing vs TIE Fighter
Wing Commander 1, 3, 4, Privateer and Privateer 2: The Darkening
Elite and Frontier: Elite 2
Hardwar

Oh, and demos for X2 and Freelancer, but never got around to buying them despite wanting to do so. Of the above list, TIE Fighter is definitely the best. There's just no competition to that masterpiece without drawing the Freespace games into the lineup.

Comments:
I've not played FS2 in a while as - shame on me - I've been rather FS2'd out after a while of playing it a lot. Hence the move to X3 which has been a nice breath of fresh air... a new set of races with new weapons and places to explore etc.

Of all the space sims I've ever played, I've put most of my efforts into FreeSpace and FS2 followed by X-Wing vs Tie Fighter and X Wing Alliance. Sadly X-Wing Alliance didn't feature the customisation options of X-Wing vs Tie Fighter so I only played the campaign a couple of times and then got bored waiting for the high-detail models to come out for it (it's a shame they weren't with the game originally, as the engine is clearly capable of more than it was asked to do at the start).

FreeLancer was average and I found Starlancers graphical style and presentation to be a lot more enjoyable if shorter. To this day it has some of the nicest damage models on ships that I've ever seen, and the torpedo runs simply rawked. It succeeded in being one of the only games to capture "naval battles in space" well.

Does Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 2 count? Cause that is the only other one I've played.  :D

My nick comes from that series  :lol:
In FS2 you have unlimited shots for lasers and the opportunity to rearm yourself.In that series you have a big number of missiles...I needed to achieve my incredible amount of kills.

It's not a simultaion becuase it's for PlayStation and it's controls are semplificated,ok,but on the other hand more realistic games(I have played some of them,like F-18)do not have a story.

Re: What other space sims do you play? (Did you used to play?)
Wing Commander, got started waaaay back in the day when WC2 was new. I got it when it first came out on CD (for Christmas, as I recall). I followed Wing Commander religiously up to WCIV; after IV I dropped out of it. Prophecy held no appeal for me.

Then I got X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter, then TIE Fighter (the collector's edition CD-Rom), finally X-wing Alliance and X-Wing itself at the same time.

FS1+Silent Threat got picked up as a random purchase from the bargin bin at Fry's Electronics. Several years passed before I got FS2 came next, acquired through less-then-legal means :nervous:, and a year or so passed before I became an HLPerson.

I picked up Battlecruiser Millenium (:nervous:) awhile after I appeared here. After that comes Starlancer, which I had a good bit of fun with until I hit a brick wall at the Saturn ion cannon, then Freelancer.

Oh, and Asteroids. :p Can't forgot Asteroids.

Re: What other space sims do you play? (Did you used to play?)
uh, Super Aleste & Axley on SNES last week  :nervous:
Tell ya what is a good flight game, using the Apache in San Andreas. I can play that for ages, doing the "Brown Thunder" Vigilante mission.
Never played X-Wing or Tie as it happens, before my (PC) time. I imagine I could get on ebay if I have a look though

I liked the Quasi-futuristic planes in Ace Combat 3.
