    It sure isn't for everyone, but i gave up on Freespace/WingCommander becuase i wasn't good enough. Also it was just too much on rails for me.It sure isn't for everyone, but i gave up on Freespace/WingCommander becuase i wasn't good enough. Also it was just too much on rails for me. Privateer 2 hadn't enough story & was too open. I did love Descent 2 & 3 though. So for me it's a classic like "Baldur's Gate", "Diablo", "Doom", "Carmageddon", "NeedForSpeed", "Master of Otion 2", "C&C"... However i have to say, playing the GoG version with just a keyboard is hard, especially because it can't handle simoulteaneus keyboard presses (well at least not all the time)! Back in the day i owned a joystick which worked great. dunno if the gog release even supports it. Expand

    Amazing game. Played this when it first came out. Great atmosphere. Missions structure, action, graphics for the time but that are stillAmazing game. Played this when it first came out. Great atmosphere. Missions structure, action, graphics for the time but that are still totally playable today. Some interesting features were the underwater currents that affected movement, the way you could upgrade turrets on the ships by purchasing better software. the base design, the world lore. In short, a hell of a game that deserves to be rediscovered by gamers! Expand

    Sort of Privateer 2 under the sea instead of Space. Well presented, strong story, good graphics, terrific soundtrack. Innovative settingSort of Privateer 2 under the sea instead of Space. Well presented, strong story, good graphics, terrific soundtrack. Innovative setting too.

    It amazes me that I'm the first reviewer here. But then it only ever had a cult following I think.

    Worth resurrecting your old PC for!

    All the ridiculous praise surrounding this game tempted me into playing, especially that it was released on GOG lately - imagine myAll the ridiculous praise surrounding this game tempted me into playing, especially that it was released on GOG lately - imagine my disappointment. Every good thing you've ever heard is just pure nostalgia haze (or maybe should I say narcotic trip?). Poorly designed, barely playable, bug-ridden, broken mess.
    Not only very basics of the game are flawed (terribly unresponsive controls), targeting enemies sometimes works, sometimes does not, scripts often don't execute, making you restart missions, some ships you are to protect have 0.1 health and go down if someone even bumps them, this supposedly great trading system is just as linear and boring as in newer Aquanox, before you're halfway through the campaign everything becomes tedious and boring. Story is really basic, dialog is moronic (and poorly translated from german). Guys had good starting idea, but totally failed with execution.
    Why some ppl call this turd "classic" and put it in the same league as "Baldur's Gate", "Doom","Carmageddon", or "Diablo", is beyond me. Don't waste money, don't waste time.
