  1. Anybody recomend any really good games with a space setting? Games like freelancer, open ended adventure or just raw action like HALO. Im after a game like freelancer, its an ok game, but it could of been so much more. Recomendations?

    I recommend Descent: Freespace 2, plenty of action and the feeling of space :)

    Sci Fi leaves the field wide open for recommendations:

    Star Wars : Jedi Academy
    Star Wars : Knights of the Old Republic
    Unreal 2

    etc.
    etc.

    Can you specify what genre of game, i.e. Space Combat, FPS?

    To arris. Games that are adventure based and set in space. Open ended, like Freelaner if youve ever played it, just cruising round planets making a living... Games like that are specifially what im looking for, but ill definately look at those other titles on bit torrent. thanks for the replys guys.
