Overall a decent game with what I found to be rather fun combat. While the cutscenes are alright they aren't the best out there, some of the dialogue I found a bit clunky. The customisation is quite good and the game does offer many ways of earning money required to purchase these upgrades. There is also a special ability tree that allows you to play to your strengths and I found it to be quite well thought out. Truthfully I have yet to complete the game but from what I played it has been fun, however I cannot comment on replayability. I hope this helps.

Great game, very similar to the Freelancer style of gameplay, or privateer 2 for those from the wing commander era. Very open world with side jobs and missions, you are stuck in the one ship the whole game through but once you see what it can do you'll be happy you aren't flying the rust buckets you're easily blowing out of the sky. Greatly recommended for those that like the space shooter / trade / ship progression genre.

One of my favourite space games. DarkStar One has a nice story, a nice universe and a nice playability in general.

Even after completing the game story and maxing out my ship several times, finding all the artifacts, I always feel like starting over and playing the whole game again.

I consider it a must-have.

The game could have been a real contender in the space sim genre, but the severe gamekilling bugs and general errors the game suffers from completely obliterates any chances this game had, even back in 2006 when the game launched DSo suffered from a morass of issues the worst being the save game corruption which leads to the infamous infinite loading white hyperspace bug which is near impossible to fix leading to potentially hours of lost time and work - most people who have finished this game will tell you, save the game often because save games will get corrupted on a regular basis.

If your easily frustrated by bugs, having to repeat missions due to bugs/crashes and hate near constant corrupted files then never bother with this game.

This is the only space game I've been able to get into and actually play all the way through from beginning to end, all the others just seem to lose interest in.

Honestly, I would only recommend this game during a sale. I spotted it for 2 dollars and went ahead and purchased it and I am really glad I waited. If you are a huge space sim/shooter fan and have not given this game a try then wait for it to go on sale. The game has some nice things about it, don't get me wrong, great controls, nice and clean ui, and a huge space to explore...but if you are hoping this game is gonna bring you a deeper experience you will be disappointed. It is shallow in that regard. Missions take about 2 minutes to complete, which I hope gets better as I move forward into the later parts of the game. Trading doesn't really have any depth and I do not believe there is any mining options. If you are in the market for a great space shooter then just stick with Freespace and Freespace 2. If you want a mix of shooter and more freedom then go with Independence War 2. Even Wing Commander Privateer is a great choice over this game. I will continue to play this to the end but I can definitely say this game will not be memorable. Play it, get whatever you can from it, and get Elite Dangerous when it releases.

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.

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.

Customizing your ship with weapons and special abilities is the best part about this game. While space battles are well done, fun, and with good physics, it does get boring somewhat quickly. The main missions and side quests can be interesting as it progresses through the storyline, but it does not give you a feeling of great accomplishment as you go through them. The trading aspect of the game can and might as well be ignored completely. It provides you with minimal profits in comparison to the other means to acquire credits. Speaking of credits, I completed the game with 8.5 million credits in my possession. After a while, the amount of credits you accumulate will become obsolete, as you will have more than enough to get whatever you want. The game suffers from extreme repetitiveness, which also creates tedium and dullness when you do the same two or three activities over, and over, and over, and over. Simply put, the game is about 20 hours too long. The developers should have been more concise and implemented more diverse aspects in more ways than just this. The end game is surprisingly bland and unexciting. Also, throughout the game, you are given a false sense of freewill. Your progress is almost completely linear.

Darkstar One is good.

This is one of those games that, while you play it, it is enough to keep you playing and, once you finish it, you forget about it. Not bad, but not amazing.

I think those who would appreciate it most are those that haven't played games like Freelancer or X before. The rest will see it as an alright game that doesn't do anything new, but was amusing nonetheless.

Entertaining, although not very versatile. The idea of mixing RPG elements by creating an evolving ship is nice, but merely replaces the opportunity to switch spacecrafts and try out new combinations. Missions might become repetitive (and far less challenging) once you understand the basic components which they are constructed with.

If you are looking for an in-depth 4X game along the lines of X: Beyond the Frontier and its sequels, this might be too shallow for you. If you are looking for a more space combat focused game, give it a try. Do not expect the intensity of a Freelancer or Freespace, but at least it might still the hunger until a next Indepence War sequel arrives.

A really good addition to the space sim genre, really simple and easy to pick up and play, story is somewhat broken up at times but its more about the journey in the ship and its evolution rather than the over arching story line in my opinion. All said and done its a fun Space shooter game and would deffinately give it a try if your into the spacesim genre.

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.

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.

A fun, inexpensive space combat and trading game with some customization options and a servicable story. Can be quite addictive and is easy to get into, unlike some other games in the genre. Becomes a bit repetitive after a while, but you could probably push through and finish the main story a lot quicker than I did. If you're looking for something in the genre and don't want something too insanely deep or hard to get into, it's worth a shot. May not sound like the most resounding endorsement, but this game ended up being quite high on my hours played list and I certainly enjoyed it the entire time I did so.

Good game. It has a nice pace to the combat and the story is acceptable. There are some ship upgrades and RPG elements. Not a great deal of depth, but the space combat is where this game is fun. If you like space combat and some open ended game play you should definitely pick this one up.

You might like this game if:
You find the X series a bit too time intensive and want a more stripped down space sim.

Darkstar One is a space flight simulator in the trade/fight/explore genre that most people are familiar with from games like Elite and Freelancer. Darkstar One is not a game that deviates much from the tried and true, most of the features and design direction you find in Darkstar you will also find in the older successes of the genre.

You play the game as Kayron Jarvis, a young pilot who's father was recently killed through nefarious means and you set out to discover the truth. Of course you will quickly trip over a number of large conspiracies and eventually have to save the galaxy from an evil race of aliens. That is all standard.

To aid you in this quest you have the unique and powerful spaceship "Darkstar One" at your disposal. Unlike other games in the genre you will be stuck inside this one ship for the entirety of the game. That is not to say you will be stuck with the same capabilities for the entire game. As you progress through the game you will find artifacts for your Darkstar that will allow you to upgrade your ship with additional weapons and turrets.

Visually, Darkstar One looks pretty enough not to disappoint. The special effects are not overdone, and the visible part of the ship's cockpit feels gritty and natural. The design of the ships and other larger space vessels is striking at first, but it does become somewhat repetitive after a while.

The sound effects, while not top-notch were good enough to sort of blend into the gameplay seamlessly. The voice acting, on the other hand, is mysteriously void of the "acting" part. Blame it on the fact that the game was translated from German.

The biggest problem that Darkstar has by far is the fact that it simply feels like a pale copy of other, far more successful games in the genre. There is nothing in it to grab you while playing. The combat is overly simplistic after you master the controls and the story is about as engaging as the evening news. You almost get the feeling that Darkstar One was put together by people who either didn't know how to make an interesting game, or simply lacked the will to do it. Darkstar One is in need of fire and passion; it lacks the imagination and creativity needed to captivate the player. The gameplay feels flat and it becomes very tedious after a while. Even though the initial impressions may suggest differently, Darkstar One doesn't deliver the type of experience that space sim fans are looking for.

It's not a game I'd normally recommend to anyone but it just happens to be in a genre that is woefully short on quality these days so if you're fan of the genre you will probably end up playing this at some point regardless of it's faults.

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.

Until the more recent X3 series was released this was one of my favorite space shooters. It's exactly six years old yesterday, but stil looks amazing graphically. It's only £2.99, half the price that Good Old Games are charging.

The first person cockpit-view is your only portal onto a colourful stellar landscape of nebulae, planets, stars, space hulks and asteroid belts. There are similarities to the original Elite (gameplay wise only) where players can choose to pursue a career as a ttrader, bounty hunter, smuggler, mercenary or even just as a plain old mass murderer. It's well orth the money. The graphics are not as sharp as the X3 series, but are still beautifully rendered.

If you purchase this you'll soon be marvelling at the futuristic glaxy that you inhabit digitally. :)
