About This Game

In the year 2299, an interstellar war rages. Take control of the Strike Suit – a craft with the ability to transform into a hulking suit of space armor - in a bid to save Earth from destruction. Immerse yourself in massive fleet battles where your dogfighting skills will directly affect the fate of the cosmos.

Discover a colorful and vibrant universe, with an epic story spanning 17 unique missions. Engage intelligent enemy fighters and take on colossal capital ships, exploiting weak points in their super-structure to blow them apart piece by piece. Upgrade your Strike Suit and customize your weapon load-outs to tailor combat to your tastes. Take advantage of six craft, including three Strike Suits, to experience dogfighting action as you’ve never seen it before.

The Director’s Cut is the definitive version of the game featuring a next-gen graphical overhaul, restructured campaign and additional content – including the Heroes of the Fleet campaign.

This is space combat reborn.

I personally have the almost the same feeling as original one expect:
1st is the fact that the main story is easier and better looking.
2nd visuals are looking better than previous one,but at cost of shadows...sad.
3rd it gives you almost all DLC(expect soundtrack)from previous game.
4th the voice acting is better,but development of characthers is non-existent still.
5th is story is somewhat remastered. For example on stage where you get the suit,you instead destroying the wreckage,you destroy drones instead.
6th the ending is MUCH easier than previous one. Previous game had it very hard.
So far my reactions is the same: mixed.
The game is of course better than previous one,but the feelness of underpower combined with bad controls makes it not good.
For 20$ like normal one its overpriced,but for 10$ or 5$ it may worth it. For over 10$? Unlikely.

Strike Suit Zero - Directors Cut - Like the original Strike Suit Zero and Strike Suit Infinity this title is massively under-rated; if you ever wondered what life as a fighter pilot in the homeworld universe (pretty much the same art style) was like then look no further! You assume control of the Strike Suit, an experimental fighter that can transform itself into an even more immense strike craft. The campaign has been slightly reworked to make the story flow better, the visuals also slightly tweaked to make the game more immersive and the music is composed by Paul Ruskay; the chap who brought us the delightful yet sinister sounds of the homeworld franchise. The gameplay takes place in the third person perspective and pits your ship against the full panoply of space based enemies, from fighters and bombers to destroyers, cruisers and capital ships. The gameplay is also surprisingly challenging and you will often find yourself overwhelmed if your concentration levels drop off even for a momment. Highly recommended if you enjoyed any of the following; Xwing, Tie Fighter, Wing Commander Series, Homeworld 1, Homeworld Cataclysm and Homeworld 2.

Being a huge fan of the Nintendo 64 game Starfox 64, I have always had a craving for a modern game that could work as a sort of spiritual successor for my old love for Starfox. One day, I started hunting for space combat games and this particular title popped up. After playing for a while, it quickly turned out to becoming one of my favorite games of all time~

This game features:
-Gorgeous Graphics and spectacular locations
-Excellent sense of scale
-Larger battles can feel quite hectic as one can expect in an ongoing space war
-Play as a transforming gundam space ship
-Ability to launch your very own Macross Missile Massacre
-Intuitive, satisfying and incredibly fun, arcadey gameplay
-Challenging yet balanced gameplay
-Fantastic UI
-Music from the same composer of Homeworld
-Clear indicators for enemies and allies without oversaturating the screen

Most of my time was spent on the original version of the game. The Director's Cut is essentially the same game with improved graphics. The story has been tweaked as well in various ways to help improve the flow (for instance, missions 2 and 3 have been switched from their order in the original release). The game itself is a delight to play. It might take a little while to get the hang of the transformable Strike Suit, but the game will reward you for doing so.

The difficulty spike at the end game was reduced (which is great!) and along the way the improved the voice acting and made some of the levels make sense. Overall a good improvement for a price of $5.
