When I saw the open beta trailer for Strike Vector back in early January I didn't think much of it other than it had some great music, after receiving a gift copy my opinion completely changed. Strike Vector is hands down one of the fastest shooters out there with unsurpassed freedom of movement and speed. It requires some practice to get down but it's an absolute blast once you do. Customization is handled wonderfully, with players having access to everything non-cosmetic from the beginning and acquiring cosmetic parts, paintjobs, and decals as they level up. As someone who doesn't care for progression all that much I think they've found a good balance. The maps are great too, with each one being rated on how deadly they are to traverse. Anyone can go fast, but weaving through the innards of an airborne oil refinery at full afterburn isn't something just anyone can do. There are only two complaints I have, the size of the community and the lack of lag compensation. Lack of lag compensation wouldn't be so bad if I wasn't confined to playing on a european server half the time, but that's just the thing, at best I've seen two and a half servers worth of people playing. Personally, Strike Vector is probably one of the best shooters I've played. It'd make any other fast paced competitive shooter look like a snoozefest but I have a hard time recommending it because without other players there really isn't much you can do. If you've got some friends get the four-pack, at least you'll all be able to enjoy it together. oh and the music is ♥♥♥♥ing great.

Very fast-paced, full of action, with short load and briefing times - excellent if you just need to shoot something out of the sky for a couple minutes and then carry on with your life.
Friendly, although small, community - it's in your hands to fix this!

Pros:
- graphics
- flight model (not easy to master)
- weapons, add-ons, customization

Cons:
- multiplayer: just few players (1-20) online and too difficult for beginners to survive
- solo play: no complex "missions", just fast time-racing (1-3min.) with a little shooting
- solo play: later missions are very difficult, restarting over and over to avoid mistakes and finish in time, very frustrating

I would really like to see some more enjoyable and longer missions with more reasonable time limit..

Multiplayer is dead. game is good but only single player is not worth full price of the game. controls are good. Strike Vector is a unique, must-consider offering for all those who wish to experience something competitive fast, balanced and damn hard. 5.5/10.(just because of dead multiplayer, or else 8/10)

Great Game only the pvp sucked cause beginers generaly can't aim well, which would be good if there wasn't a shot gun they could adopt and use their entire time playing the game. So yeah it has potentioal but the game is to difficult and ends with people taking the easy way out.

The inputs do not work at all under Windows 8.1, the plane/jet/whatever just circles around itself without doing anything. When running in Windows 7 compatibility mode, it crashes on exit and the controls just feel as sluggish as hell. It that game is supposed to be fun, then fire up your debugger and friggin' fix it first!

I'm glad I had not paid the full price for this garbage.

The game LOOKS fun, but its really too bad that its unplayable. The controls are awful, and the whole time you're fighting wind resistance (or something) because flight just doesn't feel smooth. I like that everything appears to be unlocked from the get go, no options reserved for veterans, so assuming you could push past the terrible movement it'd be a great game. There is no controller support (likely because you'd need two sticks and a d pad just to cover the different ways you can move,) and I am honestly dissapointed overall because I really want this game to be playable.

Pros:
-It's something different
-It's got some pretty intense combat gameplay
-You feel real good when you get a kill

Cons:
-There is almost nohbdy playing
-You get really dettered when you start playing (controls are super wonky if you've played only traditional games)

How to Fix Cons: Please play, this game was soups hyped and I feel like I kinda threw away money, I always see the same people playing. It really is a funtense game.

I'n my opinion Strike Vector is a really awesome game. It's a fast, skill based space-ship shooter and that's exactly what I like. Sadly there aren't that many players around and I think it's because it's not free to play and because it can be very hard for newcomers. I think it's worth buying it though, it makes very much fun, it's pretty cheap and also was on sale a few times, so watch out for those!
