I never really got INTO this game probably BEEcause I played wingcommander3 heart of the tiger FIRST, so this game seemed like a downgrade seeing as the ships were not 3d, if I played this without ever playing wc3 then I probably would have liked it more?

Manual added ;)

JAY DEE 2014-10-22 -1 point DOS version

a manual would be handy,the controls are dont get money if you use inf ammo or invulnerability,ALT-O brings up options,C comms,press C when docked to save load,G activates guns,W changes weapons,N for nav screen,A for autopilot,+/- for speed,[/] change screens.F1-F9 change views,T for targeting,L locks.and 30 minutes? sounds like he didnt upgrade two weapons and activate both.also you start with a missile launcher,buy missiles and use them.

First game just ended up with me fighting this Talos whose shields neither of us could bring down. The battle just went on and on and on and on and on and on until I just force quit DosBox in frustration after 30 minutes. I couldn't even find the game's normal "Options" screen with any Load/Save or Quits on it.

Typical ugly VGA era game with zero intuitive controls

This version is buggy. Missions don't earn any money. Use a different version.

good thing you didnt warn me beforehand (about privateer 2) cause privateer 2 is among my top5 favorite games ever, its a 10/10 scoring games, privateer is ok, but the sequel is the most atmospheric and fun great game i have ever played

great game.

Privateer 2 was also awesome, Christopher Walken. Need I say more?

One of the best Sci Fi computer games of all time, Privateer puts you into the Wing Commander universe as a freelance character with the freedom to peruse any career path you wish. Be a pirate, a merchant, a bounty hunter, a smuggler, a patriot of the Confederation or even a Kilrathi sympathizer!

The game takes place in the Gemini sector along the frontier, about one year in the Wing Commander timeline before the destruction of Kilrah. Profit is the golden rule and morals are strictly optional. When not pursuing fortune your own way, the game offers an extremely compelling storyline for you to follow. Don't fail to download the "Righteous Fire" expansion to this game once you finish it for a whole new storyline and a heavily modified Gemini sector.

Whatever you do, do *NOT* under any circumstances play the sequel, Privateer 2: The Darkening. Believe me, I'm doing you a favor by warning you away...
