An amazing contrast of epic scope and simple control, Freelancer does an excellent job of mixing elements of simulation, role-playing, arcade action, and nonlinear cinema. Outstanding 3D graphics and a theatrical soundtrack are just the appetizers. Most innovative is the game's mouse-only controls for space flight, which are far easier to learn than those found in most simulators. The point-and-click story elements of the game can get a bit repetitive, but the action-packed battles definitely liven things up. An excellent interface and ample hand-holding make it easy to bounce among the wildly different modes of gameplay. Although the demo only delivers one complete mission, the replay value is high. If you've ever been scared off by the complexity of simulation or strategy games, definitely give this one a try.
