Well I enjoyed far too much, still playing it online after all this time, hell I even became a Server Admin on one of the UK GSP servers.

Freelancer was like a really great bad movie; the gameplay is a textbook example of half-finished design (aside from exploration, which is fun if you can stay alive), the writing and dialogue was watchable at best, laughable at worst, but somehow I still enjoyed it immensely.

I thought the whole factions element was sabotaged by scripted elements. Spent ages getting into the (IIRC) Liberty Smugglers, or mayne Rogues, good books only for them to turn when the Liberty Navy turned against me.

Took too long to repair your "rep" with guys who defaulted as hostile too. Usually meant attacking Bounty Hunters to win favour by privy.  :doubt:

"Take my love. Take my land. Take me where I cannot stand. I don't care, I'm still free. You can't take the sky from me. Take me out to the black, tell them I ain't comin' back. Burn the land boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me. There's no place I can be since I've found Serenity. But you can't take the sky from me." - Ballad of Serenity

It downright SUCKED if you ask me.

Fly to point A, blast target, tractor a piece of the target (some originality) to your "cargo bay," fly to point B and get your reward. not much of a way to move the storyline along.


One of its biggest flaws was the random mission generator.

(yay, i decided to post again!)

Word. I literally looked at the missions once and found most of the missions to be those fly to A and B missions, with crappy prices. only one was some kind of recon mission.
To consider the Earth as the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet, only one grain will grow. - Metrodorus of Chios
I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta
