GoF2 Full HD is a fairly bad Space-Sim game wich unfortunatly lacks a lot of features.
The graphics are fair, the soundtrack and SFX are BAD, the story is faint and very short and the plot just boring.

Also, it doesn't come with the Valkyrie and Supernova wich almost triples the story and improves A LOT the action. And it feels like a port.

And it is. If you want to play this game do it on your smartphone. You can find it in the iOS Store as well in the [Google Play Store. You can get the DLCs for a fairly small amount of cash and enjoy the game to it's full potential. Rate: 4 / 10

Calling this Full HD is false advertising, Gimped HD is far more accurate. It has no pc support and none of the DLC will ever be released for it, furthermore, non DLC content, like the top tiered ships (Ghost, Dark Angel, etc.) have been removed from the PC version. Apparently the devs hate pc gamers.

With that said, its still a lot of fun, just keep in mind that 3/4 of everything mentioned in the guides you won't be able to do.

I highly recommend this game but not on PC because it's free on android and iOs devices and you can buy the DLCs for it. The PC version doesn't have any updates or DLCs because it didn't sell good. Well I'm not surprised because it doesn't worth 20 euro while it's free on other devices.

Having a great time mining, running missions, and shooting up pirate ships and pirate bases. Very relaxing gameplay, and very easy to control with keyboard and mouse. Circle strafing the bad guys always feels good. Stronly recommended.

Plays really well on PC and while it lasts is fun. It's a cut down Elite style game with a story that is sufficient for style of game (just don't expect anything special) and lots to buy and upgrade to. Unfortunately the life of this game is where it falls down. Without all of the expansions available on the mobile versions (Apple/Android) you soon find yourself at the end of the game with all the upgrades available and a wanting for more. Disappointingly the expansions are not available so the fun ends there and that is the only reason not to recommend this game.

Good simple fun.

I got all the gold medals on easy mode, which was fun while not too grindy.

Wish that the expansions were on PC also, because I want to keep playing.

I beat the game in about 12 hours, not a very long game. I spent some more hours getting some more money, then I bought what I think is the best ship available.

Very simple for a space sim, but that makes it nice and easy. Fun nonetheless. Nothing hardcore in the genre, but fun!

I have really enjoyed this game. Its visuals are gorgeous and the playablility is smooth. However there are a few bad points. The story sucks, the side missions are repetitive and sometimes ridiculous. But I do recommend the game because it is fun to upgrade your ship and weapons and fly around and fight different factions.
It is a good buy for sale but not as full price. Good several hours playing on pc and when xperia play came out.

As fare as gameplay goes I love it. :) easy to control, not overly complex (in fact being a but more advanced would do it some good, but maybe that's just me). However... The voice acting is terrible, the storyline is cliche at best and is quite dry plus the ending is quite abrupt.... I mostly played it because of all the ships you can get along with all the cool weapons. What I dislike is the randomness of the shops, if you're looking for a particular item good luck. ;) overall I would give this game a 7/10 for gameplay a 6.5/10 for content and a 2/10 for storyline. Overall this game is 5.1/10 worth getting so it barely passes.

Just starting to play this game, got it in a nice cheap price. But the big problem is that 19.99 isnt a good price for every one of us to play. i think it was better for 10 dollars but hey, its still a good game but we should have gotten at least same number of updates from the iOS version and also the DLC's that are on iOS. iOS is actually freemium and takes much longer than playing on the PC version, but the storyline is pretty much the same and the controls for pc are amazing. The game deserves more for a 19.99 dollar game. Its a good port with amazing visuals comparing to the iOS version. Its not a bad port and im sure it is similar to one of my most favorite scifi games which i still have the physical copy, it's freelancer. A great game, anyways most of the ported games from iOS to PC can be bad comparing on the original iOS port. :P

A very enjoyable space flight game with an adventure side to it too. It is not just flying around and killing stuff. You have to earn credits to upgrade your ship by doing all sorts of different missions like escorting ships, destroying junk in space, mining stuff, etc. Also in regards to the flying it is not even close to as complicated as other games and that is welcome. In regards to the graphics for this game let me just say it had me taking screenshot after screenshot because it was so beautiful at times. I also have to say the story has been fun and the humour in it actually did make me laugh thus far. After 2 hrs+ of play I know I will be going back to playing this game soon. I definitely recommend this to others.
