Informazioni sul gioco

Darkstar One offre una fantastica quantità di scelte possibili. Le missioni vi guideranno gradualmente nella profondità della galassia verso nuove razze, innovative tecnologie e avversari sempre più temibili. Esplora un vasto assortimento di sistemi solari alla ricerca di artefatti nascosti da antiche forme di vita o di potenziamenti essenziali per la tua astronave...La "Darkstar One".
In aggiunta agli artefatti, puoi ottenere Crediti per comprare equipaggiamenti migliori, come armi o scudi. Puoi guadagnare Crediti in una miriade di modi diversi: accettando contratti di protezione o trasporto di merci, cacciando criminali e ricevendo ricompense, ma anche con atti di pirateria e contrabbando.
  • Un universo vasto, con molte razze uniche, astronavi e tattiche militari.
  • Una storia elaborata, completata da più di cinquanta minuti di sequenze video.
  • Configura e migliora la tua nave, la "Darkstar One", come meglio preferisci--costruisci una nave d'assalto, veloce e pungente, o una fortezza indistruttibile completata dalle armi più devastanti.
  • Più di duecento armi differenti, scudi e equipaggiamenti.
  • Razzi, siluri e mine completano il tuo arsenale permettendo tattiche speciali: usa le mine per distrarre il tuo avversario dai missili in arrivo o lanciale direttamente all'attacco.
  • Le "Armi Arcane": armi speciali con un potente effetto simile ad alcuni incantesimi tipici dei giochi di ruolo. Queste armi diventano man mano più versatili incrementando le opzioni tattiche e le strategie disponibili.
  • Acquisisci armi dalle altre razze - Installa armi di tecnologie aliene sulla "Darkstar One," ognuna dona possibilità uniche e influiscono sui risultati della battaglia.
  • Imbarcati in una missione speciale - esplora canyon o gli abissi di modi sconosciuti.
  • Libertà di gioco - guadagna Crediti nei modi più disparati: combattendo, assaltando, contrabbandando, commerciando, proteggendo, cercando tesori...cosa aspetti?
  • Giocare come il "Buono" o il "Cattivo" farà cambiare alleanze e vantaggi politici.

I wish there was an option for 'Meh' for recommendations.

As far as Space Sim shooters go, this is definitely a good catch on the market. The learning curve is hardly a curve at all (if you are able to get on good terms with relativity of direction), and it will keep you going for a while.

However, at the time of writting this, 7 hours in, it's becoming more and more apparent just how repetitive this game becomes, and offers you no replay value. The missions are all pretty much the same ("Go there, kill things") and it turns into an incredible grind fest if you're a completionist like me. Eliminating all the gangs, liberating the systems, flying through asteroids for upgrades and a silly sidequest now and then that is even more repetitive if that's even possible.

The game would also like to suggest that there are multiple ways of making money and choosing different paths and sure, there are indeed multiple branches that you can gain reputation in, to become a Merchant or a Smuggler, a Mercenary or a Pirate, a Killer or a Bounty Hunter...

Well, except that Merchant and Smuggler are the same thing with a slight risk and much larger reward for Smuggler, Mercenary and Bounty Hunter are just you shooting the bad guys, Pirate is you shooting the good guys and stealing their stuff to sell for Mercenary or Smuggler, and Killer is the same thing except you shoot to kill. So really, not much of difference at all.

And even though there are indeed dozens and dozens of systems to explore, there really isn't a reason to. It's all the same anyway, slight differences here and there (image of a planet in the background, number of objects, possible sidemission/collectible (that you can see and check news stand about locations of beforehand)), but other than that, you're probably not going to visit a lot of systems for more than a few seconds while your jump drive recharges.

Anyway, to wrap it all up, I would only suggest this game if you want to play a space shooter. If you're looking for a trader game, I would suggest you look at other Kalypso titles, as the trading system isn't really all that great here. If you're looking for something you can pick up and play casually whenever you feel like blowing some space ships up, this is the game for you.

Although there are a lot of negatives, generally if I finish a game, it's good enough for me to give it a thumbs-up. It's slow, very repetitive, and very linear for an "open world space sim". On the other hand, the ship controls feel very nice, and the game always has something for you to do. If you don't want to pursue the main quest at the moment, you could just go kill some baddies for fun and profit. Of course, you won't be able to "level up", unless you follow the main quest, which is a bit of a bummer.

Leveling up also is a bit awkward, since you don't really get anything for it, other than the ability to buy some upgrades from the local trade station. Those upgrades can cost a LOT of money, though. The game levels up the enemies along with you, so you'll never feel much more powerful than when you started the game, aside from there being more flashy bits when you hit the fire button. There's a mission toward the end that is next to impossible if you've been conscientiously upgrading your ship, though, so you might want to skip some of the upgrades until you've finished it (Flak 2).

I'd say the modeler did pretty good work on this game, even though it shows its age. There's a fair variety of ships that you'll see flying around. Would have been nice to be able to pilot some of them. :) The textures are pretty bad, and sound was just ok, but voice acting was a bit cheesy.

If you like space sims, give it a shot. If you're not a fan, pass this one by.

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.

About 90% as good as "Freelancer," this game's flight and combat mechanics are easy to pick up and consistently rewarding. The just slightly campy (and lovably so) story is told well, too.

While some games in this genre focus on getting the next ship, "Darkstar One" is all about making one ship work for you. It's a slightly different take on the formula, and it's a good one. Also, the game is pretty forgiving, which is nice when similar titles can be "brickwall difficult" experiences.

I was actually quite surprised with how engaging "Darkstar One" turned out to be. Going in, I was prepared to be disappointed. Instead, I was enthralled.
