this Title build on the concept that freelancer began (imo), it gives you the oppertunity play the game your way, at your pace. the choice of story versus free play mode allows you to have either a narrative driven story or make it up as you traverse the space lanes. it takes some time to build up finances and upgrades for you vessal and those who love immersion will enjoy it. there is enough action in there to keep the combat pilots happy and if you can run it on high settings its pretty to watch. to me this is more of a “spacers life” sim than a “space pliot” sim and would be much suited to mmo style of play. as far as i know there is no multiplayer (yet?) and this takes away from the title. This game has a strong community in cyber land and a lot of on- going support, so if you have problems there are resources available. an interesting game if you can devote the time it needs to play it through.
