It was atmospheric in the sense that Mars is atmospheric: it has an atmosphere, but it's not one you want to put up with unless you're a rock.
If that's what you think then fine, but I AM A FREE THINKER AND I THINK HOW I WANT TO THINK :(



The oppression of Battuta will never return

 
The only atmosphere FS2 had was the nebula  :wtf:
And we all know what I think of the nebula missions.

FS2 breaks down like this for me;
Mildly interesting rebellion/SoC arcs.
Horrible nebula missions (though the introduction of the shivans wasn't too bad (at the knossos)).
Horrible collosus missions.
Horrible nebula missions.
Decent'ish' last two missions (Bastion mission should have been a billion times better, but it's still one of the highlights of the campaign, how bad is that?).

Basically any mission to do with the collie has no immersion for me, and all the nebula missions are - is annoying.
So compared to FS1 which is a much more involved plot where the player actually pushes home events, the fact that it doesn't have all the anti-climatic crap in it (Fs1 had one ending, Fs2 could have ended at least 3 times over the campaign, it didn't gel together at all).

Combined with the fact that Shima and Wolf would *****slap Bosch to Epsilon Pegasi and back, and Snipes is a wuss.
Meant FS2 really didn't live up to the expectations I had for it after FS1, it was only a mild improvement over Silent Threat.

Meh!
FS2 was all about the multi anyway, no one cared about the campaign.
"Neutrality means that you don't really care, cuz the struggle goes on even when you're not there: Blind and unaware."

"We still believe in all the things that we stood by before,
and after everything we've seen here maybe even more.
I know we're not the only ones, and we were not the first,
and unapologetically we'll stand behind each word."

FreeSpace 1 was like the inbred child of A New Hope and Independence Day.

FreeSpace 2 was all the genius of The Empire Strikes Back without a bloody awful sequel to ruin it.

FS1 intro, hands down. It still sends shivers down my spine every time I even think about it.

The FS1 opening cutscene is awful. It's such an incredibly cookiecutter concept for introducing a new enemy. They then proceed to play it utterly straight, in every exact nuance. The acting is unconvincing for the people they're supposed to be playing as well, and I can think of a dozen ways that even technology contemporary with when FS1 came out renders the entire exchange between pilot and controller unnecessary and pointless.

Finally! I've been saying this for years!

That cutscene is just another take on a script we've seen a thousand times before. Panicked knight rides in. Panicked soldiers report in on radio. Panicked X reports vague and ominous premonitions of evil Y.
