Current games like Freelancer? - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Thread Starter 
I was looking deeper into X3 but decided not to try it. Looks like a steep learning curve and I just want to jump in and play. Too bad they canceled freelancer 2, it looked badass!

there are some wicked freelancer mods that just make the game huge !!! discovery is the best one biggrin.gif However if you play online youll need the patched server file as MS shut the official one down years ago. Ive not found a game to rival it really. Didnt like X3 much frown.gif

Tho im waiting on this one biggrin.gif

I was looking at that too, but not into MMOs that much. Guess it would give it longevity. Isn't Even online similar to freelancer?

If you think X3 has too steep a learning curve, then you really don't want to look at Eve online.

however, Eve is one of the most facinating games i have ever played. Well worth a try, even with just the 14 day trial.

very true! been playing X3 here and there... and i still really havent figured out what to do... lol


freelance was such a great game. probably would be number 2 on my list of pc games that ive played the longest.

edit: might have to reinstall freelancer tonight and see if i can get it to work on all 3 screens.

you wont + its really easy to get it working on non official servers. Discovery makes the game massive but it does change the story line just to warn you

Funny I stumbled on this thread when I was writing an article in my blog about just this smile.gif

As to EVE Online... I've been an avid player of EVE since 2005 and was in it's Beta testing from Beta Phase 2 until it released. EVE is a wonderful game in it's own right but it is not 'like' freelancer. Nor is it like freelancer's inspiration: Wing Commander: Privateer. EVE is a totally different type of game in my opinion. You fly in space in both... you can blow stuff up in both.. you can even buy stuff in both... but to call EVE anything even remotely similar to either Freelancer or Privateer is more than just a bit of a stretch.

I've played most of the titles folks always talk about when folks talk about 'game like privateer/freelancer?' and nothing out there really even comes close. I keep hoping for a "The Next Privateer" but it has yet to happen. Even Freelancer kind of didn't feel like privateer in some ways because it started forcing you through the storyline missions rather than letting you do your own thing. It was a great game though and was definitely the same play style. I just wish someone would make another game like these. They are easily my favorite types to play.
