So, this is a good game actually as long you can have at least 4 people in the game.
Yes, the control is kinda hard for the first time, but after you understand about it, you'll love to do the maneuver.

How about the Dogfight? It is great. But if your enemy is upgraded/good ship, you screwed actually.
But you can actually fight back with a good combination with teammate. Kinda balancing there.

The problem for now is that THERE ALMOST NO PLAYER PLAYING IT ANYMORE.
But you can sometimes find the veteran that always play this game and THEY ARE friendly.
The map is not that much(3 i guess), and the mode is good afaik.



TL;DR -> Just learn the game and keep upgrading your ship and you'll know that this is actually great game.

Dunno what's new or not about this game, but I loved it. Think of a racing game, and then make it into a shooter, in 4 dimensions. Unless you're piloting a bomber cause those ♥♥♥♥s are slow as hell.

It's a fast paced, kill everything in sight, space fighting game. Like Star wars battlefront on PS2 when you could get the ship battles in galactic conquest. FUN, STUFF.

Single handledly one of the buggiest space games out there,
sadly 1/5 is the worst you can give something apparently, which is a shame because this game needs to recognized for the quality it is and maybe then something will be done about it,

A while ago, I wrote a review of Moon Breakers saying that it was better than I had expected. I was not mistaken... much.
I stand by my claims that this game has amazing graphics, brilliant music, fun gameplay, a smooth framerate and virtually no technical issues; but this could all be because the game has few, if any people playing it.
The servers are dead. Nobody plays on them. The master-server is almost always empty. I have only been in the games-design buisness for a few months so I don't know everything about designing a game, but I do know that if you have an all-current-player server which is more often empty than not, YOU'VE DONE SOMETHING TERRIBLY WRONG.
Perhaps because of Moon Breaker's unsuccess, the developers have put little development and effort into the game which is a shame because it actually has incredible potential and is already really good.
It's a step in the right direction. If there was more content, less repetitive gameplay, a higher beginner friendliness and more people playing it, Moon Breakers would be tolerable. It was designed for masses of people to be playing it.
So I invite you, one and all, to download Moon Breakers and push this game to its full potential. If you like Science-Fiction, you owe it to yourself and your fellow gamers to play this game.
Based on gameplay, this game gets a 7/10. It is ruined by blandness, something that, in this situation, can and should be fixed.

The concept isnt all bad, not all original either. Controls are ok, but meant for mouse and keyboard a la freelancer, gamepad is a no go.

graphics are ok, looking dated but its a free game after all.

all throughout a very mediocre game.

Why does it suck? there is absolutely nobody online playing. and its multiplayer only. dont bother.

as of ... November 27th 2014. the game is dead. servers are no longer up. its been abandoned. from what i can tell - it was due to lack of players in the first place. might have one or 2 personal servers up every now and then like any other steam nearly dead game.
=
scratch that. West Coast has gone down. and east server only has one other person on it.

Awesome game by itself, destroyed by the P2W. I have an almost fully upgrade Scout spaceship, and I get destroyed by Bomber ships that are FASTER THAN ME. If this game was as balanced as games like Tf2, I would say it's one hell of a fun game. And it is. When there are no P2W players it really is fun. You just have to hope that no one payed for a better ship in your game. I would recommend it because it needs more players.

Moon Breakers brings back the epic dogfighting of games like Xwing Vs Tie Fighter & Freelancer mixed with a bit of BattleStar Galactica style physics. Each ship has its unique tactical advantage, but winning a battle is more about your skills as a pilot and the strategies you use. This includes smart use of your afterburner (which also highlights your location when used adding another dynamic to the fights) and the presision piloting thru the awesomely detailed asteroid environments; this can be the key to winning many a dogfight. Its F2P but you can buy ship and booster packs or simply grind these out in game. Graphics are good but not jaw dropping.

The game had an excellent balance, was accessible, and most importantly was a heap of fun! There isnt a lot of variety in this game though and regrettably devs seemed to have dropped support so what could have really been epic is now a game with server issues and zero community in 2013.

Try Star Conflict if you like this sort of game; this one is frozen solid, floating aimlessly in space!

Terrible, the players here are all either P2W or are ancient and have fully upgraded ships that can instantly kill your beginner ship which has nothing. Earning money is hard as you get remotely no kills unless you steal them and upgrades just take away all of your money. This game is the definition of a bad game

this game is fantastic fun for all ages, its playable by kids and also appropriate due to having language filters,
you can choose from more than 18 ships, spread over 4 ship classes, a great variety of affordable upgrades for each ship is included.

you can get everything on the menu without paying a single cent (however you may choose to support the developer)
and its heaps of fun to play, especially with such a nice game engine.

the downsides:
+servers: you cant select any servers apart from the east american server, its not very accessible for alot of countries
+maps: the existing maps are good, but they are too few, there needs to be more variety to spice things up a bit
+game modes: likewise the game modes are indeed good fun, but they take too long with few people on the servers,
if you could create short 5 minute maps for multiplayer and a single player mode with 5 minute objectives
that would be great :)

the upsides:
+wide selection of ships: makes it very adaptable to play for many different people
+child friendly: no foul language and not graphically violent, just focussed on a little fun with torpedoes and space ships
+no lag: im playing from australia and i have never experienced latency, this is amazing and beautiful to play on short notice
+hangar access between respawns: not something i would usually mention but it allows you to change your ship between
respawns and it is very good due to being able to change objectives mid game
+ship classes: as i mentioned before, there are four ship classes, each with their perks and i think you can find a ship you like
no matter what kind of play style you prefer
+ingame credits: the credit system is incredibly well balanced, its easy enough to get credits to upgrade your current ships
and even though it is still expensive to progress to the next space craft the price range isnt too stretched
out with about 100,000 credits between each of them mostly, but i have only checked the bomber section

+the bounty system: after a player does well enough they get a bounty added to them for every few kills or turret kills,
torpedoes wiped out or hit etc, this makes it easier for people to get those credits they need quicker
and speeds up the time of getting the next ship alot.
if more people played at the same time this would be a great balancing feature, for getting an extra 15k
credits when you kill the target saves alot of grinding for your next ship. makes good competition as
well.

+round time limits: time limits are well balanced and you dont take longer than 15 minutes to blast your enemies, not too
long and not too quick.
+credits saved upon disconnects and errors: this is remarkably useful, if you are in game and suddenly it does stop working
for whatever reason you still get your due credits from that match when you
re-open the game. very player friendly.

in conclusion i cant see a reason not to get this game, if you are a scifi nerd you will love the ships and weapons and if you
arent you will love the atmosphere, its few glitches [i have not experienced any of them personally but i have heard of some]
are not even anything crippling to your game progress and you forget about them just as quickly as they happened,
great game to play after work, just before school [not recommended], or when you have 20 minutes to spare, you could
even play it on your lunch break at work if you had a laptop.

WARNING: this game is VERY absorbing, always be careful not to lose track of time when you play it

ps: all you pilots have fun out there ;)

This is a great game! If you're an older gamer, you'll probably remember Star Fox and Crimson Skies. Imagine if these two games had a child... it wouldn't be Moonbreakers. lol But, it would be something like it. If you're considering getting this game, I'd definitely recommend it. There are some downsides, however. The devs have all but given up on it, as it's down to one server and there aren't anymore updates. The community that still plays is small, but holding out for some new players to get into the mix.

It's a little difficult at first, but if you stick with it, you'll do great. It's worth checking out at the very least!

Great game when you like dogfighting in space, though when you just begin, without paying, you'll get killed quite a lot. though when you unlock heavier fighters and bombers, you'll get better. 7/10
