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.

7/10

I suppose I could be wrong about this, but "Eterium" bears very strong marks of being a direct homage to "Wing Commander." Pretty much every character and ship in the game seems to be an expy for something you might have encountered in adventures involving The Tiger's Claw, and the basic gameplay elements all seem to be the same.

In the same vein, you should be ready for some pretty challenging combat. A few good hits will do you in, so you can't be lazy. Part of the nostalgia baked into games like this is that they're rather less forgiving than modern titles, so the learning curve might be steeper than you're used to.

A fair amount of challenge also lies in the controls. They're pretty tough to truly master if you're a keyboard and mouse pilot - maybe they're better with a joystick or gamepad, but I wouldn't know. Getting enough cannon hits to take down an enemy can be a bit of a project.

"Eterium" is hardly original, but it seems to have been made with commendable care. If you like "Wing Commander," it's probably worth a try.

The game is bloody frustrating.
It gives you mission instructions, and then contradicts them in the middle of the mission. You follow the contradiction, and you die.
You try to follow the mission briefing, you die.
It also fails to explain what buttons do what in any cogent fashion.
Basically, needs a huge brushing up on the UI/hotkey choices.
Or just give me afrigging manual so I can read what is supposed to do what and ignore the ♥♥♥♥ of a tutorial someone slopped together.

Forget the boring story and pretend it's Wing Commander. Ignore the terrible 2D drawings of your fellow pilots and don't bother trying to keep track of their 10,000 names. Then load up with FF missiles and go be the Red Baron in space for a few minutes. Gameplay is everything in this one, not the "story".

Also, yes there is a lot of flying to empty waypoints, but that's what autopilot is for. It may have been an annoying and boring part of the Wing Commander games, but it was something we all remember and by god it's in there. Use that time to have a sip of your beverage of choice.

If you enjoyed Wing Commander, you'll enjoy this. It's fast-paced, fun and exciting to play. I've done a couple of videos of the game in action, but if you're a space fighter joystick jockey/addict like me, you'll want this game.
