Про цю гру

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.

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.

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

Это не просто игра. Это – легенда. Это то, как делали космо-симы раньше. Это внимание ко всему и везде, начиная с первых миллисекунд вступительного ролика. Невероятная и заставляющая верить в себя. Не игра - целый мир. Золотое время для Volition, и их триумфальный вклад в дело освоения космоса компьютерными игроками.

Таких игр сейчас не делают. В принципе. И увидеть это еще раз на своем мониторе… снова оказаться в том горящем корабле… Это не описать и обзором на тысячу слов. Это вообще не описать. Удивительная игра из удивительного времени, когда разработчикам было не наплевать на то, что они делают.

Would love to play this game but it DOESN'T WORK.

Apparently if you have a modern system - anything after Circa 2000, it won't run.

Tried the Nglide program that mimics older 3d fx graphics. No luck. Turns out the only available support is for Freespace TWO, which has a strong mod community and has been updated to run on modern systems. No such luck with Freespace One. Do not buy this game.

Steam needs to stop selling these games as they are blatant rip offs. DOES NOT WORK.

Game: Don't know

The only two issues i have experienced with an old game like most is the fact that it dose not support Dual monitors and you may get strange graphics or even game crashes, to fix this just play with one monitor active. The next issue i am getting is that the subsystem targeting on larger ships dose not work if they have multiple weapons, its supposed to target the main targeting computer then the individual weapons as they are destroyed, so for capture missions be ready to locate the guns your self and take them out. other then that its exactly as i remember from when i first had it.

The controls do come off a little clunky now as i am used to more smoth controls and its is designed for mainly keyboard play, the controls are inverted for the mouse and that can not be undone but for the keyboard you can change the key bindings of 8 and 2 on your number pad around to fix the issue. Though after the first three missions you should have it down on what buttens to press and when.

My favorit part of this game is that you can select what ships and weapons for which squad go out in to battle with you or that you pilot which can help make game easier or ungodly hard if you chose the wrong weapon sets. Also! do look through the keybinding list, the ingame tutorial will not teach you every thing, just enough that you can get through the game with little issues but the extra commands that are in the game help you so much to play with out them to me is not a very good idea...

Other then that, if you wanna be a deepspace protector of earth and lead a squadren of fighters to help you along your way to meet differnt mission goals not as the main character of the story but some one whos effort through these missions help advance a war where two enemys fought for years on end are now being forced to work together to take on a far superior threat, then i recommend this game for you.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is one of, if not the best, space sim games made in the time when they were a top Genre of PC game history. It has a great story line, and great sequell, which may or may not show up on steam. If you grab this, dont forget to pick up FreeSpace 2 aftwards, its on GoG and has a large and active modding compunity that has kept this game up to date both feature and graphics wise.

I can only hope to see FS2 get on steam, with the FSOpen mod on official support. Such an action would bring Freespace into the realm of contending with F2P games, as it will be cheap ($15 for base files) then have 5GB of mods slaped on to brin it in line with high end Open GL graphics, and a new matchmaker ands stats browser to replace PXO. All these things are already made, they are just not on steam. Cant wait for the ease of use that steam will bring, and hopefully the influx of new players to one of the best games in history!

Freespace on steam! I've probably spent hundreds of hours playing the sequel and its numerous user made campaigns, so this was a must buy. Although the controls may seem a bit daunting at first, once you get the hang of it the flight model is one of the most satisfying you can find. Don't let the dated graphics put you off from an old school gem from the space sim's golden age!

It should be noted that the game tops out at a resolution of 640x480 without any mods, and thus the steam overlay doesn't work properly. A widescreen solution can be found here.

But whizzing around asteroids in 640x480 does have it sown appeal :P

The game of my childhood, if I recall right, I completed the original campaign 14 times. After 10 years later, the 15th still wasn't a disappointment.

Love the story, and as for the gameplay, never a dull moment. Can only recommend this to everyone, and for such a price, it is a must.

As for the graphics: it is an old game, and 640x480 was kinda high-end at that time. But if you use a glide wrapper, such as nglide, then you can get sime nice looks (the software render or even direct3d can look quite terrible).
