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.

Dios mio que grandes recuerdos que tengo de este enorme juego.

Jugue a el cuando tenia 12 años en una sola demo, y me enamore de el, fue tambien de los primeros juegos del espacio al que entré, y me sumergí como nunca.

Gran sonido ambiental, buen control de la nave, una musica que me a perseguido desde niño.

El juego esta en ingles pero es perdonable debido a sus años. En aquellos tiempos era dificil tener juegos en castellano.

Era para Windows 98 y creia que no podria con mi Windows XP, pero parece ser que si.

Tiene una escasa resolucion pero suele pasar por lo mismo.

No me importa nada! Es un juegazo al que me sumergí de niño y al verlo de casualidad mientras miraba la tienda... me dicho... es ese? ¿ES ESE?!

Y si... era ese. por tanto lo recomiendo si o si, porque para mi. ES UN JUEGAZO!

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.

Although I wish that the Steam release of Freespace had better optimization for newer PCs, it is still very playable. The graphics may seem dated for today's standards, but the gameplay is still just as intense as it was 17 years ago. The story and dialogue are immensely well done and do well to put you in the shoes of a Terrain pilot. I highly recommend this wonderful classic as it stands as one of the best space sims ever made.

This was my favorite game growing up. An oldie but a definite goodie. The game launches you as a new pilot into the middle of an all out war with strang appearances from unknown ships. They say the enemy of my enemy is my friend. You join up with your former foe in the war, advance your technology to par the new enemies who appear. From one on one dog fights to team cordinated assaults on capital ships FreeSpace will keep you on your toes and intrigued with a new and different mission everytime. I came for the space dog fights and ended up staying for the story. Will yourself to ignor the graphics from a game published in the late 90's/early 2000's and play for one of the best stories and epic space battles you will find. I definitly give free space a 10/10.

Excellent old school space shooter. Was the first game i ever really played through as a kid and replaying through it was just as fun. About a 12 hour game on your first play through. Controls are pretty simple and work well. Can play with keyboard and mouse, keyboard and joystick or even a controller if you want to map out controls.

My hours played is bugged for this game, its more like 15 :)

I remember playing the demo way back when, but never found the retail copy. Finding this on Steam brought me way back and I finally got to finish The Great War! Sadly, the excitement sort of ended at the demo and the rest of the game is a bit lack luster. I was a big Rouge Squadron fan around the same time so I loved the customization of the ships and weapons as well as directing your wingmen that Rouge Squadron didn't have. The missions lack variety in scope and scenery. You are always in space shooting the same enemies and it get kinda dull. Plus, you can finish missions without even having to touch your ships and weapon layouts and they end too quickly. Some of the missions are a little buggy and the expansion is awful with no clear direction and terrible AI. Needless to say, it hasn't aged well. Haven't played the sequel yet which I hear really good. It's worth a play if you want a good sci-fi story, late 90s nostalgia, or a game to complete over the weekend. Other than that, may want to look at something else.

DESCENT: FreeSpace - The Great War JUEGAZO

Vídeo intro


Con esta intro, que sin duda entraría en el TOP 10 de mejores intros de videojuegos por la manera que tiene de transmitir lo que después sentirás tu, se presenta el tremendo simulador / shooter espacial que se sacó Volition e Interplay de la manga. Este fue mi primer juego de temática espacial, y menudo estreno por la puerta grande, porque Freespace 1 tiene todos los componentes que forman un grandioso juego, por el que además no pasan los años


No voy a hablar del apartado gráfico, porque el juego es de 1998, así que es efímero hablar de ello. Pero sí digo que es el apartado menos importante porque es del que más rápido te vas a olvidar.

Jugabilidad
Lo juego con teclado y ratón. Se maneja a la perfección. Fluido, suave y cómodo. Aceleras con "A", frenas con "Z", afterburner con tabulador... Todo a mano y sin necesidad de reubicación de funciones.

No lo he probado con joystick, pero posiblemente se torne más difícil el juego.

Dificultad
Juego en nivel medio y acabo muchas veces muerto por no tomar las decisiones correctas y no planificar una estrategia en misiones complicadas.

En cambio hay otras misiones más rápidas y fáciles de completar.

IA
Los enemigos van a por ti y buscan cogerte la cola de la nave consiguiendo que te sientas indefenso y vulnerable a sus ataques, provocando huídas a base de afterburner y bruscos loopings.

Pero es que lo mismo ocurre cuando te pegas tú a su cola y comienzas a disparar los cañones. Sublime.

Cuánto más nivel de dificultad pongas, peor para ti...

Los compañeros de escuadrón cumplen a la perfección con los objetivos que les marcas con el excelente sistema de comunicaciones a bordo que en 3 botones te permite mandar a una escuadrón a inmovilizar un aerotransportador. Magnífico y aún hoy día único.

Sensación de inmersión
Si algo hace que este juego sea una obra maestra es lo perfectamente lograda que está la ambientación. El HUD, los mensajes por radio, los briefings antes de la misión, sucesos inesperados en las misiones y que no te voy a detallar, el agobio de las frenéticas batallas, ver cómo muere un compañero del que ni conocías el nombre, la música, buenísimas, y que varía según el momento, la historia, la trama, cómo se inicia, cómo se desarrolla y cómo desenlaza... Todo hace que te sumerjas en Freespace.

Historia
Sí, tiene historia, y el juego está creado para contártela. Gira alrededor de ella. La historia es el personaje más importante del juego.

La intro del juego ya te lo dice y lo ves tú: hay una nueva especie alienígena que nos ataca a nosotros, los terrestres. Y nos superan en todo. Te toca luchar por el futuro de la humanidad.

-----

Ya iré editando el análisis, pero te avanzo YA que no lo dudes y lo compres, porque de verdad que el juego atrapa y se te pasan las horas VOLANDO POR EL ESPACIO

I remember playing this game with an old pentium 2... First came out right around the time that DVDs were kicking out if I remember right. Many Many Many hours spent playing this game, sure by todays standards the game is grainy, even a bit choppy, but when this game first game out the scope of the playing field, and the tasks, missions, were all very well done, still worth a play if you can appreciate an old space / fighter sim.

Good story, however similar to Halo's storyline structure (well pre-dating Halo).
Good mechanics, variety of weapons, as well as ships and varied enemies from one mission to the next.
Both good and bad (over) complexity of control, button availability but...
Good programming/customizing of key assignments.
Good targeting system, subsystems, engines weapon systems etc. No auto aiming.

Not so good graphics by todays standards, blocky, simple, good textures though.
Littlebit overcomplex
Some of the messages are too quick, to include captions kind of flashing by especially during initial training.

I for one am glad they brought this one back. I remember having compatibility issues getting worse and worse with every operating system released, as I carried this game through every new PC I built or bought until I lost the DVD. The first thing to go bad was sound, very difficult to play by que without audio ques and squad messages, but I'm glad that someone took the time to rebuild this to work with updated direct X / OS changes.

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!

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.

"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.

Descent: FreeSpace – The Great War is a 3D space craft action simulator. You are a recruit pilot who just joined the Galactic Terran Alliance in its age-long war against the Parliamentary Vasudan Empire, but the war takes a different turn when an unknown threat makes its appearance with the sole purpose of exterminating both races.

Pros: You get to live the war and the events through the eyes of a pilot, and the whole story is detailed through mission briefings and in-game events. Different levels of success in a mission may affect the following mission, even open entire branching side-missions. The voice acting does a good job a delivering the humane yet rigid tone of a military situation, something you'll rely on for immersion as there is little to no cut scenes. Action is great, and often allows creative thinking to resolve an issue, succeed in a mission and achieve bonus goals. The missions themselves are very varied, rivaling and often surpassing classics of the genre like the Wing Commander series. Control is spot-on, although optimized for mouse-less keyboard. As you progress, you get more and more flexibility in how you want to set and arm your squads.

Cons: The game isn't opened world, but mission-based, so forget any concept of exploring or visiting space stations and planets: you jump in, do the mission, and jump out. The graphics have aged a lot: it isn't retro-style, it's actual pixelated low-resolution interface and texture.

Verdict: ★★★☆☆ - It's up to you

The game's graphic aged horribly, but the rest hasn't: sound, music, control, action, everything remained as excellent today as it was back then. I'll recommend this game only to people who enjoys playing classics, and Descent: FreeSpace – The Great War is one of the good ones!

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.

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.

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.
