I've spent a lot of hours in this game - mostly in multiplayer with friends but the single player campaign is well written with plenty of twists and turns.
Graphically the game still looks polished - I remember being blown away when I first saw it and they still look crisp and clear today - albeit with fewer effects you would expect of games today. Let's remember it's over 10 years old.
I recently saw star citizen and thought I'd dust my old copy of Freelancer down. I've just completed the single player campaign (for the third time) and am very pleased there's a handful of mods that take this further.
In short one of my favourites overall and by far the best for this genre in my opinion. Can't wait for Star Citizen!… Expand

This tactic was applied by and against us successfully until we became able to defend and give a proper account.
The on line matchmaking works well - much less than a minute waits. In all honesty sometimes you take a few panning's in a row and other times you'll find it well controlled and a deserved win. The matchmaking gives you a 50/50 win rate over time which helps you to improve your game. When you're taking a real beating it just takes a win to get you back in love with the title.
If you enjoy single players and you enjoyed the original you'll enjoy this. It's a reasonably interesting story with some good twists. I don't tend to play the campaigns but I completed and replayed this one. The campaign is limited to the Terran race, but the expansion 'Heart of the Swarm' introduces a Zerg campaign along with new units and extra features.
I can say in all honesty this is my favourite game of all time across all platforms which me and my friends play to this day.… Expand

Character choices, cartoons and the fun graphics have clearly had a lot of work which are nice touches.
However after playing for several hours my friends and I decided we would put this one on the shelf and dust down the original.
On the plus side the original Sanctum is now cheaper than ever.… Expand
