I tend to prefer FS2. More than anything, it seemed better thought out, and a better play experience. Volition took what was already good and made it great. I also like the terminologies as well. In FS1, it seemed like you were getting everything as it was developed, which made no sense to me. Like the Herc, which made appearances in cut-scenes, yet in Vanilla FS1, they announced it and gave it to you after Vasuda got slagged by the Lucifer like she was hot off the drawing board and fresh off the assembly line. In FS2, you got authorized to use certian weapons and certian ships. Not to mention, the story seemed far more organized. you can say you werent in as much awe of the Shivans, but i felt worse faceing the Sathanas fleet than the Lucifer. We knew there was only one Lucy at the time, and we justneeded a way to kill it. But the Sathanas fleet... lets face it, we had to ambush it and disarm its main weapons for us to kill one with the biggest war-ship in our arsenal, and that single sathanas had nothing but several wings of Basalisks to help it. If it had a demon or a Ravana with it, and proper defense, Colly would have been cooked. And that was only the first one... they had more juggernauts than we did destroyers, more than likely.
