Starlite: Astronaut Rescue is a 2002 tech demo for... oh wait. Nevermind. It's a "mini-adventure", sporting "Unity Terrain Mars Environment and Shadows, Futuristic advanced rover setting, advanced biosuit space suits, professional voice acting, realistic physics, original story and dialogue; and advanced robotic navigation".

Every single one of the aforementioned features are over-exaggerated. This cough game cough is what you'd expect from one of those 100 Games on 1 Disc compilations for Windows 95. It's truly awful, but luckily it lasts only 15 minutes.

My single positive for this title is that I encountered zero bugs/issues with my short experience. But, bugs/glitches are directly proportional to content, and so this is expected.

In your short experience you'll control a rover and a human character. The looking action is awful, and movement is just as bad thanks to really terrible mouse acceleration. It feels as if the player is on ice. This problem is disguised as 'realistic physics'. It's annoying, plain and simple. Jumping and staying in the air for 2 seconds longer, and walking with longer strides is realistic physics. Not releasing the W key and waiting 2 more seconds for your character to come to a halt. Eugh.

The story is a generic rescue mission, which is outlined in the title of the game. Going along as usual, someone had an accident, you have to find them by completing abstract tasks and finally you're rewarded by landing back at square one. There are a grand total of three 6th grade maths problems that need to be solved, a 30 seconds crafting bit (with a cluttered interface) and then a short driving and positioning part with a rover. Oh and someone said some words at one point.

Avoid.

This is abysmally bad. Don't waste your money or time. NASA proves again that they can't do much right anymore. Hey NASA, stop wasting my tax dollars on shoddy video games, maybe think about getting back to ACTUALLY putting men on Mars!

Forget it, NASA is hopeless. I'm betting on companies like SpaceX getting us there first.

Bill & Melinda Gates: With all of your millions, this is the best you could do? This is a sad pathetic effort, and a horrible waste of whatever you spent on it.

A little more detail: the player locomotion is laughably bad, you can see in the first seconds of the game that the character slides over the terrain in a totally unnatural way. The "formula page" was completely impossible to get past, even though I am a PHYSICIST and I completely understand the equation involved. I literally couldn't figure out how to work the clunky UI. I then alt-tabbed to go look for help, and found I couldn't get back into the game! So I force-closed it, then went straight to write this review.

To Gaming Community/Devs: Somebody should make a game along these lines, that is actually GOOD! Because I still like the idea behind it, and would love to play a properly implemented game like this. Maybe see if Elon Musk will fund it?

This is greaterest space game in space to ever take place in space. I loved the part where i had to do gradeschool math in space. The best element had to be that it was in space.
