Info over het spel

Darkstar One biedt een fantastische hoeveelheid vrijheid en keuzemogelijkheden. The missies volgen een verhaallijn die je steeds dieper in het universum brengen, waar je nieuwe wezens, nieuwe technologieën en steeds sterkere tegenstanders ontmoet. Verken een enorme verscheidenheid aan zonnestelsels, op zoek naar verborgen artifacten van eeuwenoude buitenaardse werelden, die essentieel zullen zijn om je schip-- de 'darkstar one' te upgraden.
In aanvulling op de artifacten kan je credits verdienen om betere uitrusting aan te schaffen, zoals wapens en schilden. Verdien credits op legio manieren:door opdrachten aan te nemen, premie jager, piraterij, smokkel, handel, escorteren, transport, beloningen en meer.
  • Een uitgebreid, gesimuleerd universum met vele soorten wezens, ruimtevaartuigen en gevechtstactieken.
  • Uitgediept verhaal, met meer dan 50 minuten aan video scenes.
  • Configureer en verbeter jouw schip, Darkstar One, naar wens--bouw een snel en wendbaar aanvalsschip met vele lichte wapens of een zo goed als onverslaanbaar slagschip met zwaar geschut.

  • Raketten, torpedo's en mijnen maken speciale tactieken mogelijk: mijnen kunnen vuren op tegenstanders of inkomende raketten onderscheppen.

This isn't the next coming of Freespace or X, but it doesn't pretend to be either. It's a nifty space shooter with a side of RPG elements, and for what it is, it's actually a great wee game. Given the disappointments in the genre that are available today, going back to titles like this is actually kinda refreshing.

Ok, so here is my review of Darkstar One. I was kind of hesitant to get this game, but at $2.49, what the hell, right? I had read other reviews, seeing positive's and negative's about the game. I decided to give it a go. So far, I like the game. Good graphics, decent story line, some pretty good space-combat. All in all, not a bad game and is definately worth the price. I like all kinds of genre in games, from Dungeon-crawlers to space sims, to racing and first-person shooters. I grew up on Atari, Nintendo, Panasonic 3DO, Playstation, etc. So, I know gaming. Darkstar One is a good game. It has it's moments, lag, glitches, etc, but so far, I'm having fun playing it. My opinion, if you enjoy space combat, open-"universe" games, you might really enjoy this one.

Good fun. Kept me playing for 9 hours (so far). That's not bad for £6 (I actually got it in the sale for less, but I would have been happy even if I'd paid the full price). Fly around space, shoot space pirates (or become one), be a mercenary or a trader transporting resources between systems to make money, do odd jobs for people etc... Think if X2/X3 had a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ child with an arcade machine...

Graphically it's not bad, actually looks quite nice considering it was released 8 years ago. Some of the backdrops are brilliant, an effect only slightly let down by the special effects and textures (which to be fair aren't bad, but nothing special today either).

The bad? The voice acting is terrible (so just like most other games in this genre), the story is painful, and the cut scenes look like they belong on a PS1/N64. Also it doesn't capture your mouse, so if you use more than one monitor you will occasionally find yourself clicking on the wrong screen and making the game drop to desktop (disabling the screen in your graphics card control panel fixes it, there may be another fix I haven't bothered looking). Game's crashed twice on me in 9 hours, pretty sure it was to do with the multi screen problem as it hasn't happened since.

If you can look past the voice acting (as any fan of this genre has to be able to do), and ignore the low res cutscenes (of which there aren't many anyway), then this is fun.



Update: 16 hours... It's more fun than sim, and Turrets are totally OP: my first turret is a lvl 3 railgun turret - every time I get in a fight I hear constant fire from the turret, keep dodging, kill everything!



Update 2: 33 hours. I am fury. I am pain. I am Death. I have blasted, burned and obliterated my way through dozens of star systems. Hundreds, maybe thousands of souls floating through the void are my responsibility. A silent testament to my rage. Pirates are afraid to even think of my name. Now my sights are set on Broniss corporation.

Flying through a Broniss subturanean complex, and the lead character comes out with the single best comment in a video game of all time "These Bronies are gonna get it." So I guess that's that. Bronies beware...

One, Two, Funky's coming for you.
Three, Four, missiles to your door.
Five, Six, wait till you see my tricks.
Seven, Eight, plasma burning bright.
Nine, Ten, you'll never breath again.

Hmmmm... Maybe I should take a break from this game.

For a older game its dam good for a space game and there are a few mods out there for it but not too many of them. In its time i think this game was over looked because of bigger names like Wing Commander and star wars and so on, To tell you the truth for a space game i would put it up there with them, Maybe a little past them for this reason, It does have a story line in it and yes you have to follow it to get anywhere in the game but there is so many things in the game you can do, you can be a miner, a trader, most wanted man in knowing space, bounty hunter and so on, for a time you are all of them. I would give this game a 9 out of 10.
only reason why it lost one what because of the graphics, the game is old but the graphics are still up there for its age.

Wonderful game but sadly ONLY Single Player game.

Wish there was a DarkStar Two but that probably will not ever happen!

Nice space sim. Sadly enough, that's about it. The character animations and voice acting are a bit stiff, the story is kinda boring and predictable.

BUT the fighting is fun, the upgrade system is great, the game looks nice and the alien races are distinct. And in a genre that is as starved as this, that's enough sometimes.

Well, at least until Star Citizen is released next year.
