Hey. It's subscription free. It sounds like you get more than enough for your money ....

It could be ok when your bored of everything else and just want to play something and blow shit up. Who knows until you try it?

I gave it about 20 minutes so far. It's no space sim - more of a lightweight, casual MMO with spaceships.

I've been starving for a space sim that I don't have to pay monthly for.

Desperate times call for desperate measures

I might try it if for no other reason that it would be awesome if it was good. I don't really need fancy graphics. The screenshots look decent enough to me. It looks like a pretty low rent operation in general though. I'll at least keep an eye on it. I'd be more inclined to checking it out if it had trading and that sort of stuff space-sim stuff.

Just a browser based MMO version of Freelancer would be awesome. Someone ought to do that. Even without making all that many changes it would be a pretty good candidate. It's light on resources, already works reasonably well with almost a couple hundred players on a desktop server and a cable internet connection, and it has pretty simple pick-up-and-play type gameplay. The mechanics and player management would need work, but it's not so far out there.

I was skimming over the license agreement and found Splitscreen will post notification of any such changes to this License Agreement on the World of Warcraft website and will post the revised version of this License Agreement in this location, ...yadda, yadda, yadda.

Why the World of Warcraft website? I have a few suspicions but there's probably an innocent answer.

eve online knockoff?

No. Think more like the mutant offspring of Wing Commander Arena having raped Freelancer then raised by a retarded Japanese couple who are also visually impaired.
