Yes but MUCH MUCH BIGGER. You can plant down space stations and basically own fleets of trading ships(ran by A.I.) and all that. But you can play the game without diving deep into the economy, so basically you can play it like freelancer. As for the flying and combat. . . it's comparable to freelancer, darkstar, wingcommander, etc.
If you do decide to try and be a business mogul, then really scrutinize where you want to place down your first space station, because the only other way to remove/salvage it.... is to blow it up with your ships guns. Running a trade empire could get very complicated and could over tax a low end pc.

No.There's no FUN involved.

Freelancer and X2 have a lot in common thematically. I would say X2 is more like privateer where you can control your own space stations and the combat is different. I may get flack for saying this, I hated freelancer's mouse based combat. It felt limited at best but more like management saying, can't you make this game worse on PC than console? The x series is many things, but limited is not one.

NO.

Freelancer is more about exploration and combat.

X series are economic sims, they are about trading, managing supply chains, building factories and making money.

Freelancer in more casual shooter game and the x series is more in depth. But freelancer will be more exciting on the first playthrough. The x series will be very frustrating or boring untill you get the hang of it and will last a lot longer. When I played freelancer I liked it the first playthrough then was bored the second time I tried it since nothing changes and the economy is very shallow. The x series will suck at first then slowly get more and more intresting as you figure things out. If you could compare total hours play between the two games the x series would beat freelancer at least tenfold.

I liked Freelancer more than you did, I will say it felt like there were things you could miss because of how the story progressed.

I'd love it if they made a new one.

joystick or control pad support would be a must. and a counter measure dropper that actually worked. i hated those damm wasp cruise disrupters. running away was neigh on impossible.

X2 is a deep space economy simulator with combat up to fleet level
But the combat is not arcade
X games require a lot of time and have a steep learning curve

I swear, this maximum socks guy has to be the one who made the original "has anyone been so far as decided" meme.

I'm glad there's a community of gamers who think more "depth" means wasting hours of doing nothing. it's marketed as a combat simulator just as much as a trading simulator, it just falls flat. I haven't been able to beat the original X and this game has me just as bored, I'm going to say this is a game for people who are not happy with life. People who find a "satisfaction" with spending hours of "hard work". If it's like a part time job, then go get a part time job instead, maybe you'll be able to buy a real factory one day. Games are a form of entertainment, not a method of gaining false satisfaction by pretending you really accomplished something. I bought the game for the "combat" simulator part, but I missed the "watch paint dry" simulator part I guess.
