Over dit spel

The ruthless Shivans emerged through subspace near Earth, harboring technology light years ahead of anything seen before. They made no attempt to communicate. They did not respond to your heralds. They simply attacked and destroyed everything in their path.

As a pilot for the Galactic Terran Alliance you are no stranger to war. However when racing through space to engage your new enemy for the first time, you sense something different. Suddenly darkness blankets your spacecraft. Your stomach sinks as your eyes pan across the Shivan flagship's massive body. Then it begins. Swarms of fighters pour out of the belly of the flagship and scream towards you. You’re about to discover everything you know about space combat, dogfight style - just changed.

The game is unplayable. It's actually a copy of the original, with no added support for new gen PCs. It only plays at 800x600 resolution. It's as useless as having the original CD at home.

Do not buy this game. You can play it using a port to FreeSpace2 found with FreeSpaceOpen.

Check this out for more info.

That said, if you have never played FS1 or FS2 you should, using those mods I mentioned. It's the best space combat game ever made to date. It has the best graphics of it generation, it has a compelling story with great gameplay.

The best game ever made in its original format. If your computer is a potato, or you perfer playing games in their original format do buy this, FSPorts missiles feel differently. I perfer the original engine.

To get this to work on Windows 10, I ran the launcher with Admin rights, went options were no Graphics card was selected, I asked it to detect and selected the graphics card. The admin rights part was to allow this to be saved.

Truely amazing game, I bought this and FS2 at the same time just because I love the story.

One of the greatest games of all time, and certainly the best space-shooter of all time, bested only by its sequel (Freespace 2).

I first played it about 13 or so years ago, and this game doesn't stop being awesome.
It's pretty atmospheric, had pretty good graphics and sound for that time.
What i like about this game - it's not too complicated. You can fly a lot of ships, shoot a lot of guns and missiles, destroy whole fleets of enemies by yourself (well... if you are good enough). Can be pretty relaxing.
But, of course, there is some nuances. You have to plan what to take on missions, because a lot will depend on this. And there is flying itself, but you get used to it pretty quickly.
Years later, i tried to find something similar (i mean, there are lots of this kind of games), but only succeeded a couple of times.
So, yeah, this game is kinda special to me.

I played this for hours when I was younger. If I'm willing to let my computer stroke out (or take an acid trip depending on how you look at it) when accidently colliding with another ship and keep having fun, then I recommend this.

Freespace 2 is coming June 6th!!!

An awesome game well ahead of its time.

For those who want Freespace 3, it's not going to happen. However you can download Freespace 2 and install Freespace Open from the Hard-Light Forums. The game now features hundreds of mods, campaigns, and user made ships as well as two separate takes on how the Freespace universe could have progressed after Freespace 2. It is also possible to play with upgraded graphics and at higher resolutions. All that for the amazing price of nothing. It is worth noting that Freespace Open is supported on OS X and Linux Operating Systems as well.

Happy fragging!

Amazing game from back in the day! Excellent space combat simulator with a great story and it also has one of the best intro cinematics I've seen in a game! Plus, it comes with the expansion Silent Threat.

Okay, Freespace 1 - The Great War : Check
Original Graphics and resolution : Check
X52 - Pro Supported : Check

This game might be old, but you need to know this.
Freespace, X-Wing, Wing Commander, Starlancer & Freelancer; what do those games have incommon?
Exactly, they're the best of the best when it comes down to Sci Fi Space Combat Sims.
Smooth controls, interesting missions, singleplayer & multi player.

If you're a real Sci-Fi space combat fan...get this game. It's a must have. One of the best space combat games ever made. You need this in your collection, you need to encourage Steam to accept more of those games in its store. You must commit seppuku if you deny the will of your Sci-Fi heart.

I played this game when it originaly came out in 1998 on my ole 3DFX cards. It was an amazing game then. Even today its not to bad compared to some of the new games out, It has a great story wich i think many of todays games lack. For $6 you really cant go worng. I also got Freespace 2 and played it all the way through again. Funny thing is I still own the original copies of both these games.

"Descent Freespace - The great War" despite being an old game (1998) is in my opinion an all-time-jewel of space sims, in its time I liked it even better than "Wing Commander", and that was by all means utterly brilliant. The story, the mission design, the enemies - Shivans and Vasudans - are just captivating. Nowadays at this price you should have a look, there are worse ways to waste your time than saving mankind;-)

When I saw this had become available on Steam, I was overjoyed. Freespace: The Great War was one of my absolute favorite games as a child, and I believe it still holds up strongly to this day.

The game begins 14 years into the war between the Terrans and Vasudans, and before long, an even greater threat shows its face, an ancient and destructive alien race known only as the Shivans...enemy to Terran and Vasudan alike.

Freespace: The Great War is a space flight sim. While most missions involve you either protecting an important target, or wiping out enemy forces, oftentimes both, they are all varied in their actual content and no two missions really feel the same. As the game progresses, you gain access to a good variety of different ships, each with varying strengths and weaknesses, as well as an assortment of different weapons.

Another of Freespace's strong points is its atmosphere, formed mostly from the music and dialogue. It will make you feel like you ARE the pilot, and a part of the game itself. This is definitely one of the things that helps to set Freespace apart from other space sims. I have never played another space sim that gave quite the same feeling Freespace does.

This release includes the expansion, Silent Threat, which continues the story after the main campaign's ending with several additional missions.

I really can't recommend this game enough. If you're a fan space flight sims or flight sims in general, and have not played this game, now's your chance to experience a masterpiece.
