This game is an excellent installment of the Wing Commander series and provides mountains of fun. Set in the distant future, you start with a simple space craft and a small amount of money and you are free to choose you occupation - a merchant, a mercenary, pirate or smuggler. There is virtually the whole space to explore and multiple enemies you can encounter and fight or trade with. Piloting the craft is a great deal of fun on its own (although not very realistic and not listening to the laws of physics, but what do we care, right?), and fighting various enemies is even more so. There is a main plot you can follow, but you can also roam the star system and take on various side jobs, which makes the game time a lot, lot longer than usual. Within minutes, you will be hooked to the game and won't finish until everything is explored and every enemy is destroyed, guaranteed. It has a great atmosphere and is very challenging, especially near the very end. The graphics are a lot better than the old Wing Commander games, the images sharper and a lot more detailed. If you liked the Wing Commander series you will not be disappointed in this game and if you're new to the game, you will surely want to try the rest of the games in the franchise. Fantastic!

Play using dosbox
Privateer has been one of my personal all time favorite games. I originally purchased the game back in it's release year and played it nearly exclusively for three following. After that I found myself returning to it up tell the release of Windows 98. (where I couldn't get the sound to work) Recently I've been able to revive the game on my Linux box using DosBox, a Dos emulator for Windows and Linux.
