Starpoint Gemini 2 puts the player in command of their own starship, fully customizable and ready to explore the galaxy at large. Upon game launch, budding captains are presented with the option of playing through the campaign or navigating the cosmos at will in the free-roam mode.
Fans of classic titles such as Freelancer and Wing Commander: Privateer, or even modern MMOs like Star Trek Online, should find these options appealing — especially the free-roam mode. The game’s campaign has a decent storyline with varied mission types, but it becomes clear early on that the free-roam mode is the real pièce de résistance in Starpoint Gemini 2.
