Tie fighter is the best pure space combat sim ever.
16 July 2000 | by (Santa Cruz, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

Since NONE of them have remotely accurate physics, my vote for best space combat sim is Tie Fighter. This is possibly the best incarnation thereof. Tie Fighter had all sorts of different weapons, all sorts of different missions, capships to blow up (though not as big as in Freespace (2).) What more do you need? Just because it has a low polygon count doesn't mean it's not great.
