About This Game

By the year 2500, Earth had become toxic and unsafe for human life. Pollution and overpopulation had ravaged the planet, forcing humanity to the stars. Colonies and settlements soon sprung up across the solar system, but man had not left its thirst for war behind. Then, they learned their sun was dying, and everything changed. Only when faced with threat greater than each other did the nations of man finally come together. The United Colonies of SOL (UCS) was born, its first and only mission: to locate a new home for mankind, safely beyond the doomed borders of our solar system.

Suit up and take on the role of the Lieutenant Commander, ace fighter pilot and 2nd in command of the UCS Atlas, as you search for a new home, battle a mysterious enemy, and rescue humanity from a fiery end.

I feel this game has too many bad reviews, that don't do it justice.

The gameplay is excellent. It's similar to freelancer, but with inertia and glide/slide mechanics. It's a joy to pilot the fighter!

Sure it could be longer and have more options, ships and whatnot, but then it wouldn't have this price tag.

Great dogfights, varied mission objectives. Hope they make a second one!

I honestly can't decide whether to recommend this game or not. Decent story, decent gameplay and mechanics, basic fun space shooter. What I can't get over is that a cheat is pretty much required for mission #4, and that I beat the whole game in 5 hours with one cheat after spending a couple of hours stuck on that one mission. I want to say 2.5 or 3 out of 5 stars...which I guess for Steam means not to recommend. There are better space fighting games out there.

Thanks to the input from fellow gamers they help greatly in refining this final review on the Valve/Steam experience.

Like all services providers I am only paying for service not really buying a product in the conventional sense. So when I pay the service provider Valve for something on the digital Steam Storefront, well I am only paying for a DRM game license to run through Valves DRM client Steam, nothing more nothing less. I don't have any sense of real freedom and ownership like with my retail Console/ PC collection.

So no I can't recommend this type of gaming experience at full price, but only on a sale price. Less freedom for the end user is never a good thing is it? For that reasoning I buy cheap and thumb down this service orientated DRM of this nature, just sayin.
