Let’s Play Freespace 2 – Entry 1 – Once More Unto the Breach…

Bye Bye Gemini...
Bye Bye Gemini…

Welcome, my friends, to Freespace 2, my all-time favorite game and still, I feel, the best space fighter combat sim you can buy. Now, this year is the game’s fifteenth anniversary, and I thought it’d be fun to add to the coverage we plan this year by going through the campaign in a new series of let’s play videos. :) I therefore hope you’ll enjoy the first two missions of the campaign:

Act 1, Mission 1: Surrender, Belisarius!
Act 1, Mission 2: The Place of Chariots

Thanks for watching! :)

  1. Ahh Freespace 2… One of my favourite games of all time. It has aged very well, IMHO.
    By chance I’m saving to buy a new Joystick only to play tris magnificent game.

    Recently, a guy made an installer for the graphic improvements. Check out the GOG’s forums: https://www.gog.com/forum/freespace_series/i_made_a_crude_installer_for_fs2open_with_the_2014_grafx_updates_i_guess

    The game has many things that are not correct, like sound in space and non newtonian propulsion, but is as fun as hell!! Go on Brian!!

    1. I always assume “sound in space” is actually your cockpit computer providing audio feedback to enhance positional awareness. Since the alternative is stupid on several axes.

    2. Oh wow, thanks for that Senil. Been too long since there’s been a simple installer for this.

  2. Fifteen years… Wow. It doesnt seem like it was that long ago. I remember calling and ordering this when it first came out and waiting impatiently for it to arrive and then playing it until I passed out from not sleeping! LOL. Man what fun I had playing this game. I still have the game discs laying around and installed and replayed part of it until I built this new computer. Ill have to re install it and see about getting my saved games from the old computer to the new one so I dont have to start all over.

    1. Welcome to the comments Honeybadger33! Yeah, this game sure is special, ain’t it? Do you also have the GOG version? If not, you should, way easier to deal with than the disk version. ;-)

      1. No I dont have the GOG version. Ive been waiting on the next sale to pop up to grab it. I actually have both Freespace games on the discs. I never throw my old games away unless they are broken or the foil gets ruined somehow. Even if it wont play anymore. I keep them for the memories I guess. LOL. Is anyone playing the multiplayer somehow somewhere?

        1. Apparently there is some kinda multiplayer thing set up, but it’s fairly convoluted.

Chime In!
