This game is hard to review, I would give it a meh/10 if I could as its very strong in some areas and completly misses the mark in others.
Its a space combat game, so no rpg elements here which for me is a great thing. The fact that this works well with a xbox controler is also a strong plus.
Interesting combat, with lots of different missons and objectives. and the Damage model is awesome how you can get cracked displays and your guns become damaged.
Gameplay is like a solid 8/10 and well worth your time.
The negatives are the visuals, everything has this low resolution texture feel, with explosions looking particually poor which is contrasted with the amazing cockpit designs.
Also for some reason that I cant quite work out the story is told with these really wooden manga/visual novel style anime stills which look very out of place and really dont gel with the rest of the visual theme.
I picked this up in the summer sale for £3.59 and at that price its worth your time if you like things like starlancer or wing commander.
Its a little rough around the edges but the actual gameplay is solid. The dev's also kindly added a demo so because its a little rough I would try before you buy.
