oh yea im definitly intrested in that is it a game i can start from 2 or should i get both?
Hmm ... I dunno ... to be honest I haven't fully played through both yet (GOG backlog weighing me down!). They are somewhat different from each other. Independence War 1 is more of a classic mission-based space sim with some branching points in the story. Independence War 2 is much more open and free form but it still has a story/mission plot. Actual gameplay, fighting, controls, etc are also a little different between the two games. I think getting both would be ideal, but I'm not sure which I would get if I had to choose one. If you are on a tight budget, GOG does run sales regularly and they *might* run a sale for these games, but you can never be sure when - only that it will be after you break down and buy the games! :P
As an aside, there is a dev for I-war Defiance and I-war 2 who hangs out on the I-war GOG forums answering questions by the name of Ravenger. He has a thread here
lol most likely will get the second one first then on payday these look awesome tahnk you for mentioning these as well im gonna have to check on that thread as well >.>
