Introducing the Revenant! Free Update.

Mastered the Marauder, Raptor and original Strike Suit? Take your dogfighting skills to the next level with a brand new suit of space armor.

The Revenant is a Stealth Suit for pilots looking to take on their enemies in a new way.The Revenant’s primary function allows it to activate a cloak that renders it invisible to enemies. 'Sneak' up on Colonial ships and take them out before they even know you're there. Careful, though: stealth needs to be used with care - once you activate the Suit’s weapon systems, you’ll be visible once more.

The Revenant’s weapons have been designed to deal with the Suit’s main threat: fighter craft. The cannon is based on the original Strike Suit cannon but with a higher rate of fire. In addition, the missiles are short range missiles with a short lock time and reduced Flux cost.

Get behind the cockpit of the Revenant and experience Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut in a whole new way.

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.

Not your average space shooter. Your ship can turn into a Gundam Wing style robot with massive firepower, which is needed to survive the immense number of enemies.
The game has a good plot, and is fully voiced, with GOOD voice acting.

As for gameplay, it is easy to control with either keyboard and mouse OR controller -- in fact, the controller support is the best I've seen in a game like this ever.

Definitely recommended.

Probably as close to a non Dynasty Warriors Gundam (although the transforming is more like Macross...) game North America will ever get. >.> /sadpanda
Also fills in small spot of that gap left by the lack of Wing Commander since WCP.
For that, this game deserves lots of love!

I was feeling some buyers remorse after buying a joystick for Star Citizen, and finding out the game was kinda slow and boring.

Fortunately a friend recommended I use the thing with Strike Suit Zero, and now my remorse has been replaced by joy.

Thank You Strike Suit Zero.

Edit: Review updated as of 17/04/2014 patch.

Guess I can upgrade this to a guarded recommendation. Note that this is not a review of the game itself (see reviews of Strike Suit Zero for a rough idea of how thing shake out), but rather the currently-$3 upgrade to the Director's Cut edition, assuming that you own the original Strike Suit Zero.

There's no doubt that this was a rushed release - a simultaneous PC/XB1/PS4 release was almost certainly too much for a small indie outfit to chew on. Technical issues and missing features, mostly, all adding up to a Director's Cut that ended up being less worthy a purchase than the original release of the game.

The patch released today has addressed several of the key problems. If you've got the hardware to make the game sing, it'll chug along at a solid 60fps with nary a hitch or stutter, and the controls feel all the more responsive for it. You can now also adjust the FOV freely, so if you thought that the game was a little claustrophobic even in third-person mode, you can widen your field of view and see more of the fight at once.

There are still some problems. For some reason, the 'shadows' detail option (one of the supposed major graphical upgrades of this edition) is still greyed out for everyone, and defaults to the 'off' setting to boot. There are also some missing features (mod tools and Steam Workshop support) and content (No integration with Strike Suit Infinity, the survival mode), but those seem to be in the works currently.

Problems as it may have, they've done some good work on the much-maligned campaign of the original Strike Suit Zero here. The story has been rewritten and re-voiced to flow better and generally be more coherent, and the missions themselves have been rejigged to be more exciting (dropping you into spectacular fights sooner) and fairer, with fewer suicidal NPCs to babysit and more checkpoints for if you do fail.

The main value-for-money perk of the Director's Cut is if you hadn't previously bought the Heroes Of The Fleet DLC, which is included as part of the DC upgrade. If you already do have it, then the DC upgrade doesn't seem as exciting a purchase. Hopefully if they do integrate it with Strike Suit Infinity (which I'd love to see with tuned up graphics), it's inherent value would soar.

Either way, it's a bit of a flawed release, but improving. It's a pity that it took so long for the developers to even acknowledge these issues, though, let alone fix them.
