About This Game

STORY SYNOPSIS


By the year 2500 Earth had become toxic and unsafe for human life. Pollution and overpopulation had ravaged the planet, forcing humanity to the stars. Colonies and settlements soon sprung up across the solar system, but man had not left its thirst for war behind. Then, they learned the Sun was dying, and everything changed. Only when faced with a threat greater than each other did the nations of man finally come together. The United Colonies of SOL (UCS) was born, its first and only mission: to locate a new home for mankind, safely beyond the doomed borders of our solar system.

Suit up and take on the role of the Lieutenant Williams and enigmatic Brother Aelius as you battle a mysterious enemy within humanity's solar system and beyond!

Recommendation - Not so much (After about 5 + hours)

I love Space Sims so I try a new one every now and again. This is not Freespace2, Freelancer, Wing Commander or the Alpha of Star Citizen. This is a mission to mission game where a single failure and you cannot move on.

Pros
1. Easy to play

Cons
1. On the rail format for story - (You pass or fail a mission but cannot move on if you fail)
2. No customization for ships.
3. No choice for load out.
4. Cardboard props for characters.
5. No interest in re-play.
6. Voice acting... Meh.

So why should you play. Well to be honest if you need to blow stuff up without caring of story or characters than this can get you by.

If you like flying a jet this game is for you.
If you like the scene from Star Wars when Luke blows up the death star this game is for you.
If you like making paper airplanes and throwing them this game is for you.
If you like flying jets in Battlefield this game is for you.

If you want to fly on a dinosuar this game is not for you but you should check out ARK.
I might have little hours but I have done 5 missions and it was amazing.
If you watch Firefly this game is for you.

If you are a fan of any of the following:
-Wing Commander
-Freespace
-XWing

GET THIS GAME! These guys understand how to make a fun arcadey space sim without mining or economics. There's dogfighting, there's really big ships, and there's space debris. Pew pew pew! Enjoy!

It's a fun old school space sim. With about 70 min of game play I'm liking it, it was well worth the $15 I paid for it. A lot of nostalgia value, feeling like Freespace or Starlancer, on a $15 budget.

But, MY JOYSTICK IS NOT WORKING. I have an X-55 with a set of rudder pedals. The game defaults to using my rudder pedals as the input device - which, for reasons, leaves me spining in space. I'm sure that I can work around but using the whole HOTAS set up is out of the question right now.

That's not a deal breaker though. Although I am I proud HOTAS user that's not the way this game is meant to be played. The game plays more as a arcade then sim. But that's fun.

Bottom line: If you've played through the real old school space games then this is something fun to do.

A solid, fun space-combat game which takes a lot of cues from genre classics and adds a lot of its own ideas. The story nearly identical to Battlestar Galactica, but I can hardly say that's a bad thing. Offers up some vast space battles and plenty of action, but never becomes a slog.

Not the most gorgeous Unreal game, but its certainly palatable. Also probably the first time I've ever enjoyed the company of military fighter pilots in a game.
