Pre-Release Review
This game is a good old fashioned rail shooter that was decently executed.
Its bright and colorful, and fast paced.
However this is ZERO support for this game, and if you use dual monitors the game will crash. You will have to disable a monitor to play.

I suggest a 360 gamepad to play.

Fun arcade type space battle game. Main story line doesn't last long, but it has loads of replayability.

Aces of the Galaxy is a classical rail shooter and has pretty much everything you could ask for. It's fun to play, has nice graphics and catchy music.
However, if you want to finish this game, you better allocate enough time. It's not a lengthy game, but it still lacks a save feature. Which is a bit poor.
Also, don't be surprised if power-ups float by outside the "rail", quite often they're beyond reach and you can't get them.

running windows 7 w/a 360 controller and game runs perfect. Fast, colorful on rails shooter. Old school fun.

Decent-ish. Difficult to recommend one way or the other. Poor resolution and gamepad support, but the basic gameplay is some fun starfox-like business. It's quite pretty, although the gameplay is not quite as nuanced as its contemporaries (sin and punishment 2?).

Still, compared to Yar's Revenge, Aces of the Galaxy is good, and might be the best on-rails shmups on Steam, if that's your fancy.
