    Ok, so i'm looking for a new computer game.

    if anyone remembers the old game Confilct: Freespace and Freespace 2 thats exactly the style game i want.

    Space fighter pilot dogfighting, and blowing shite up type games.

    I just recently got the craving for it again and cant even find my old freespace cd's. Anyone got any good ideas?

    I use to love flight simulators Like the Janes series but they don't seem to make them anymore :(

    The only recent flight sims i can think of are MS Flight sim X (no combat in that though) and the Ill-Sturmovik series plenty of combat and WW2 style plane there. As for space combat flight sim games i can't think of any since the old X-wing series stopped. I had Freespace 2 and teh X-wing games and loved em. I suppose if your desperate enough and have the money theres always EVE Online?

    EVE is not a twitch combat game, it wont fill that void

    there have been no good space sims for eons.. the X series sucked hard interface wise if you ask me, me and my friend usually just drop the Freelancer and Starlancer cds in for a bit of retro space combat goodness

    Allegiance was a ****ing AWESOME game but too far ahead of its time, MS canned it and i think made it open source, go have a look for some of that, its not SP (you really need a gang of 10+ of you) but its a bloody awesome game, bit of strat/teamwork thrown into the trad space sim

    Oh Lucas Arts where for art thou?

    Freespace 2 that was a classic game!

    If your still looking for space combat fight simulators -have you played DARKSTAR ONE? it's £7 on amazon.

    Some of the reviews state it's similiar to x3 but not as complicated?:blink You can modify your space ship, dog fight or use it for smuggling.:biggrin
