For any that enjoyed games like Uncharted Wars, Tradewars2002, Star Control (i think), Privateer, or similar games in that genre - (basically, you have a ship and you fly around trading, fighting pirates, doing whatever, etc). Space Rangers 2 came out a bit ago and is awesome. Forgive its lame title, its from europe (or russia, cant remember) but has recently be ported over to the US for the PC.
You pick one of 5 races and one of 5 professions and you fly around in your space ship, killing space pirates and trading goods, etc You slowly buy better equipment for your ship and build up a reputation. Lots of things to do and completely open-ended (almost to a fault).
I highly recommend the game if you are a fan of any of the above mentioned games. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to board a plane for Vegas! =P
