Experience a vast, open-ended universe filled with an infinite number of adventures. You are the freelancer Edison Trent, an intergalactic jack-of-all-trades. Your mission: whatever you want. Become a smuggler or a ruthless space thug, a naval hero or a trader. Dodge through asteroid fields while piloting elite spacecraft. The action is endless as you make your way through 48 known star systems. Greed, morality, compassion, anger... whatever motivates you, the dynamic universe will respond.
Once in a liftime experience for me personally.

if a game developer would start working on freelancer 2,i woould proberly expload from joy.
that's my review
thanks for reading this.
Freelancer is possibly one of the best deep space Single Player/MORPG games ever made. It has the unique twist of beginning, just when you think it's over. It is one of the most modded games ever and even though Microsoft had pulled the plug on it years ago, it still thrives. One of the best Mods to try, or should I say one of the first any Freelancer enthusiast should try is Crossfire 1.8. Copies of the game can still be found at Amazon. If you haven't played this game, get it and don't deprive yourself any longer. Interested to see more, look on this site, as well as Lancers Reactor (google it). You can't go wrong with this one.
Personally, I love Freelancer. Its a game of such vast quantity for its time yet back in the day of it's release it didn't quite get the respect it deserved...
now, approximately 8 years after its release i think it has more players than ever thanks to all the expanding modifications currently running (to name a few, freeworlds, discovery and underverse etc) but even without these mods, the possibilities ingame are nearly endless! You could compare it with the elder scrolls albeit in space: even if you've completed the main storyline (or are too lazy to even start it) you can just fly around trading, smuggling, simply going all out berserk!
Freelancer gave me some good hours of gaming, not to forget the fun i had back when the original modless server's were up (RAW server was a load of fun back then...) and i still recommend it to many gamers today.
Couldn't wait for this when it came out. Glad i bought it. It's one of the very few games i still come back to as it is easy to get into.
It has a great story, excellent gameplay, and more importantly, it's fun to play, either in Singleplayer or Multiplayer. Can't ask for any more than that.
Now where is Freelancer 2?
