Acerca de este juego

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.

"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. 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;-)

It's a great game. I know this from playing it when I was a kid. It'd be swell if I could play it again without it crashing Windows 8 every damn time I run it.

Edit: It works after changing some of the compatibility settings. Plays like the good old days.

Este y el Freespace 2 paa mi son los mejores uegos de combate en el espacio de la historia. Customizacion de las naves cnalizacion de energia de los escudos y armas y una historia cojonudisima por un precio irrisorio. Ojala pongan el 2 a la venta tambien y ademas se caliente y saquen mas juegos de esta saga.

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.

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.

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 remember playing its demo over and over again when FreeSpace was released in 1998. As a 12-year-old I was in awe and completely immersed in the experience fighting the unknown, mysterious and deadly Shivans. When it released on Steam a while ago, I instantly bought it and relived that same feeling - albeit with an xbox 360 controller rather than my old joystick - I recommend using a joystick if you have one, the 360 controller lacks precision for this type of game (though not enough to be disruptive).

If FreeSpace 2 is the better game, this one opened up the world of space combat sims for me. Looking forward to playing more similar games now that the genre is seemingly becoming more popular again.

This game does NOT like windows 8.1 64-bit. Major crashes and none of the forums could help.

My all-time favourite space combat game. The gameplay is tight and complex, missions are varied and progress in difficulty smoothly, graphics were amazing in the day (and still are with the Freespace Opensource project and FSPort), and the campaign is well-written and paced, albeit the "lore" is sparsely explained without the manual.

The release on Steam does not let you control your resolution and personally I get a terrible flicker in menus and briefings, so I would actually recommend Freespace 2 and the Open Source engine, which enables you to play the FS1 campaign as a port/mod, plus a plethora of user-created content like enhanced models with normal and specular mapping, total conversation campaigns etc. Plus, the new engine squashes some old bugs and has built-in post-processing effects. It's the ultimate Freespace experience.

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.

Amazing game on its own right, but the sequel (Freespace 2) is even better, and once you have the base game, you can install FSOpen, which includes HD graphics and tons of mods with hundreds of custom missions (including a very accurate port of Freespace 1!)

If you want to show Steam that you appreciate Freespace in hopes that it gets Freespace 2 to Steam faster, by all means buy this game. Otherwise, head on over to GOG and buy Freespace 2 there; you'll get a better version of this game as well as the sequel, which is a much better deal.

The day has finally come! We are getting FreeSpace 1 and 2 it seems! I cannot stress how amazing these two games are. Hands down THE BEST space sims out there, and some of the best games ever released, period. Amazing dialogue, probably the best I've ever encountered, and I've played my fair share of games in my 20 or so years of gaming, along with absolutely amazing combat mechanics, and visuals that hold up today, this is a MUST BUY.

DO IT.
