One of the best Arcade/Sci-Fi/Space Simulators/Adventure out there.
28 April 2000 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

About 6 years ago when we bought our sound card we got a set of games with it. Out of it stuck Wing Commander II. I tried to play it and came out with an icky feeling. Playing Wing Commander III I thought "Ooh, FMV. Good Cast. Beautiful Kilrathi. No thanks."

But when Privateer landed on my lap I couldn't stop playing it no matter how many times I saw my Tarsus explode. This game is so addicting that even now, years after I played it, I still have some one-liners stuck in me. The game I got 5 years ago I couldn't manage to finish but when I got the CD version I started over and went from start to end.

What can be said? Addicting? Beautiful? Great Combat Scenes? How about 'A Game That Made Me Forget A Trivial Thing As Sleeping'?

If you love good space simulators and don't want to be fighting to right the wrong or something like that, just fight for your own best interest then this is the game for you. It'll give you at least a good week of intensive play. And if you had enough then you can go and play Privateer 2: The Darkening.

To sum it up, Origin Systems: They Make Worlds. And what worlds...
