"Love the graphics, and the new design of the whole thing..i must say totally new experiance.." -Razor Blade
"I've just played my first hour of SWWT SP. And I'm impressed, very impressed, with what you have done with the game. And that's just my opinion about the looks of the game and the feeling of the controls, I haven't even started to explore the rest of the mod.
Although I've finished vanilla two times before, I'm now really eager to play the game again before I go out there and try the MP." -Mr. Bombastique
"I play this mod last night in SP mode : AMAZING !!! Game Experience is enhance very well with this mod, and the storyline is much realistic" -Ezekiel Akira
"Only thing comes to mind- AWESOME! The hard work put into this new mod really shows. Thanks for making it public... " -Scarz
"The mod is great. I have finished SP. That was very nice experience. It is not so hard. Last time I did SP campaign years ago in disco 4.84, and if I remember well how it was, I must say your mod is easier but much more interesting and fun. Everything you need, you can loot during missions. NPC's are well balanced, guns are deadly enough. Fights are fast, game is much faster than vanilla. Missions are well payable. I didn't have to trade or mine to develop Trent to higher level. I fought only, all game time. Outlook of the game is great, of course compare to vanilla or other mods. " -xtyro
"one of THE best Freelancer mods I have ever played and have enjoyed the large amounts of graphical improvements the Devs have placed into this mod. " -Sansuske
"This is a major overhaul, the whole feel of the game is awesome. I love the ship reballance, no longer will everyone need to fly a very heavy fighter to be competitive. The mining system is a great idea. Over all a stella mod " -Aussie
"With the vets I've played along side and the newbies getting into it because of the mod, it is truly an amazing community and product. If you're looking for a mod that is simply amazing, I really recommend this mod. It's simply the best out there. " -bl4xb0x
"I'm a veteran of Freelancer. I've owned the game since it came out and sampled every major mod to be released. Shattered Worlds is in my opinion a triumph. Excellent balancing and ship additions make for a more varied scenery in combat, and the mining system is by far the best I've ever encountered. While adding a great many things to Freelancer, there's still a very strong presence of the original game which provides an excellent blend of the old and the new." -Tio Holtzmann
"I've played multiple MMO's and RP'd on several places, but this is by far one of the most immersive and dedicated Mods to Freelancer. To be honest the look feel and game-play don't actually make it feel like a Mod but the expansion to Freelancer. " -Serrated
"I would say that this is the best mod that has ever been released! Its balance is amazing, and it has very unique features in it. I give this server a 10/10! Funnest server I have ever played! " -MagmaStrike
"This mod is absolutely beautiful. The new graphic effects are stunning. And don't forget the balance system that is used so everyone has an even footing in the game. " -esskier
"This mod is easily one of the best, and most encompassing of all -- The balancing is done in such a way that making enemies even with the Rogues will have you fighting for your life, if you're not careful. " -JCDNWarrior
