Ah, how upsetting. The community is dead. This was one of my old favourites. Extremely smooth flying (especially with a controller) and extremely smooth exploding shiz. What a great game, especially including sale prices, it's even worth paying full price. Overall an extremely enjoyable experience. This may seem unusuall but this game is easily getting a 9/10

i've been a fan of flying games ever since starfox64. although this game is much different, i still love it. if you have any interest in it at all then grab it on sale. or split the multiple copy with your friends because although the player base is getting better it would be great to have more playersXD. see you in the skies!

This game is heartbreaking. It is fun to play; it has a super high skill ceiling; the visuals are nice and the overall graphic style is crisp.

The only thing is that no one ever plays it. I would totally reccomend Strike Vector if it were not for this fact.

FYI, this game might look dead but there are regular games. You need to check the steam group for a link to the Discord channel, or just show up at scheduled times.

Its not a bad game at all, but as with most shooters that are akin to the classic arena fps era where the action is ridiculously fast, competitive and has an insane skill floor that even Strike vector still delivers this, since this is a flight fps/third person view shooter that places you in a special fighter jet with the ability to change flight modes on the fly and it's loadout config for many different combinations of weapons and perks, many pilots have entered in this competition, very few survived.

The game offers few game modes, training mode, customizing your vector with many parts, decals and even color it to make it stand out from other vectors. Do note that vector parts are all cosmetic and do not change the game's flow of combat between players in anyway to ensure zero ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t among each other.

It's fun as ♥♥♥♥ once you get the hang of flying your vector--you definitily need to get yourself adjusted to the flight controls before jumping on a random server. I also believe there is a group that is dedicated for SV meetups, so do join that group here on steam, and You will be notified about meetups happening, mostly on the weekends to get players together and fragging it out, otherwise, the game's unfriendly nature has scared off almost all the steam's playerbase away.

Long story short, Since this game features fast-paced action that rewards skill and effort, SV is not for the faint of heart or the casual audiences of today's popular shooters such as CSGO, Call of Duty or the rest of the military fps games that has oversaturated the fps game genre market for many years now since Counter Strike hit the fan in 1999 i think. Hardcore players: need to apply. as for Casual Audiences, if you have the patience to learn how to fly your vectors, learn to loose a few matches in order to improve your game, then go for it. If not, then you will not last long up there.

Better bring your A game or die rolling in flames out there in the skies above.

I originally bought this about a year ago, and it was wonderful, people to play with and a fun community. I rememebered recently that I got this game, and launched it up. To my dismay, no one is playing it any longer, and there isnt a single player mode that you can really do to experience anything. That being said, no reason to pay money for this game any longer. Do not buy it.

Extremely entertaining game. I look back at the time where the games were actually filled with players, the game was exciting, fast and damn fun. Whyever it is, there is about 1 player online everytime I pop in.. Please add AI/Npcs that fill up the empty ranks! Would be so great

A really satisfying game about dogfighting. I wish the playerbase was still active. I wouldn't buy this game since there are no bots.

The game is freakin awesome!
The only small problem is that the player base is very small but dedicated !
If you are going to get this game I would check out the player groups, because they usually host events and hang outs !

Never got a chance to play the game since the community is dead, Do I have hope of a community coming back?
No I do not because I live in Australia and if the game is dead in America it's dead and not likely coming back.

Save the money and don't buy it the game has no single player side to it aside from some weird checkpoint race things.

Game seemed fun enough but it's dead. Of course, saying it's dead in reviews will only ensure its death, but I think we waited long enough for it to change...

Damn the playerbase, who have forsaken what may have been the fastest game ever. Were the menus unpolished? Sure. Was the learning curve steep? Brutally, yeah. There were some things that could\'ve been done better, but it was still a gorgeous, thrilling \"aerial shooter\" that played like nothing else. And you let it down.

The Intro:
Stop. Don't let the big red square in the top left of this review fool you into being defensive. I LOVE this game, probably more than any of you reading this review. That being said let's talk about the one, ONE problem with this perfect game.

The Problem:
It's dead, man.

The Good:
For all of you who don't know, Strike Vector is a dogfighting game as fast paced as you see in the trailers. Speaking of which, the trailers do a good job describing the game: The graphics are pretty, the action is tense, there is aesthetical customization. On combat, there are varied weapons, passive abilites and "use once every so often" abilities like cloaking and a huge speed boost. (8 of each) The other positive reviews explain that in more detail, so I won't waste your time and regurgitate said information.

That being said, the game is HARD to learn. Basically you have to get used to the controls, master switching harrier and jet forms, get used to flying in tight corridors, and ONLY then can you hope to face others in pvp. You'll still get creamed a few times, but if you need advice, just type something in chat and they would tell you.

Sure it was frustrating back then when everybody was better than you, but they would be nice and try to be helpful. THE COMMUNITY WAS HELPFUL, MAN. A PvP (As in dead flipping serious, "you are not rewarded for messing around") game where the fighting is intense had a helpful community. That to me, is amazing.

The Bad:
But nowadays, there isn't a community. I, (and you included) could open up the game, click on the servers tab, and find for the amount of players on each server, ZERO across the board. Sure, some people will comment, "That is rediculous, just the other day I was playing and there were five servers with a moderate amount of people." I have NEVER seen that many people other than when i first got the game: 2 months ago, specifically April 12. (As you may tell, the other review are way before or around this time, so at most the main problems were bugs and there is no mention of a dead playerbase.) Even then the playerbase was shrinking and nowadays its maybe one person on a server for an hour. Just to humour those people, however, lets do the math; A server usually has 16 players max, but "a moderate amount of people" suggests it would be roughly half or 3/4 full. So lets say per server there is an average of 10 people. Times that by 5 and what do you get? A playerbase of 50 people. Ladies and gentlemen, that's not much, at all. It's certainly not fitting for a AAA game that this is. Morrowind has a bigger playerbase, Duke Nukem has a bigger playerbase, even MOTHER FLIPPING Ace of Spades has a bigger playerbase. Also please take into account that the figure is outdated by two months and nowadays its one guy on one server flying around for an hour and leaving.

The Fix:
So this is surprising; Usually you have a crummy, unoriginal, game that doesn't have a player base no matter HOW much advertising they do, but in this case it's the opposite. You have an awesome game that hasn't done much advertising. The only way I found out about this game was because my friend had it, and because it went on sale for like two days. Ideally, they do more advertising, people realize how cool and original this game is, the devs have a large playerbase and víola! You have a successful game.

I'm no expert, but as a person who buys games, (you are one of these too), I really like Steam sales, also anything on the "Featured" page on the store catches my eye. Sure, advertising costs money, but if they do both of these things, they will have an actual playerbase, become deservingly popular, and attract more people. Haven't you ever seen the, "put a dollar in the jar and people will come trick?"People like popular things.

The Tl;Dr:
It's dead right now, so don't pay 12 dollars for a AAA multiplayer game with no other players.

Update:
So I've done some dedicated server checking and the figures are still low. Sometimes they're in the tens, twenties, even fifties of players but this is usually right after a sale and the number drops off quite quickly. The average of the entire server population is still below ten if not absolute zero which it usually is, so I still can't delete this review.

2) Contrary to popular belief, tricking people into buying a game is not the right way to increase server population. People are throwing around really cool ideas in the forums like singleplayer, better customization, co-op challenges and other neat stuff that would not only make this a fuller game but also keep people playing. The devs also make a few comments here and there. You should check it out and give the game and the forums some love.

Also, my review just happens to have magically disapeared from the store page, so I figured it was as good of a time as it could be to update the review.
