    Pros:
    -Open world space flight
    -Faction system
    -Own your own planets, upgrade infrastructure
    -Space combat and first person combat
    -Buy ships, customize loadouts
    -Lots of content
    -Logbook keeps a record of every interaction, helping with several smaller frustrations

    Cons:
    -Repetitive on all fronts
    -Bad, bad voice acting
    -Can't steal the ships you board =(
    -Dated graphics
    -Poor storytelling and passable plotline
    -Learning curve

    Overall: Parkan 2 is a charming little game. It has a lot of issues. The voice acting is abysmally bad, and the game play gets very repetitive. Each planet has one of a few prerendered environments and some cloned base layouts. The game is open ended, but often it just feels like running in a hamster wheel, redoing some of the exact same things over and over. Additionally, there is a steep learning curve, and a wide array of little nitpicky aggravations that aren't worth really getting into. Despite this, the game is fun, really really fun. It manages to be challenging in the right ways, and comes together as a coherent whole, even if it doesn't do so with the most style. It won't win any awards, but you won't regret playing it.

    Bottom Line: It's only $3.99, that's a small price for a fun game that will give you hours of fun.

    Pretty old space exploration game, that has aged pretty well over the last 10 years. Could say its a lite version of space exploration games, but it has its charms and really funny voice acting. The voice acting its so bad its great.

    This game is enjoyable but has a steep learning and wonkiness curve. By wonkiness I mean for instance that the default control settings make it impossible to play the game. Make sure to go to the settings and click 'default' to return the controls to a playable setting.

    Parkan 2 is an open world hybrid game. After a fairly lengthy intro segment of the game you are set loose on the world and can do as you like. However, you are given a series of missions which push the story forward and ultimately lead to a relatively linear and singular objective. The game itself is broken down into three main parts. Space segments where you fly around and dogfight against other ships or space stations, landing segments where you fight against machinery and humanoids, and indoor segments where you fight only against humanoids.

    The game is much greater than the sum of its parts. The individual components of the game are all relatively mediocre, but they actually work together to create an enjoyable and engaging experience. I had a great time upgrading my ship(s) and battle suit while progressing through the game. The downside is that the game lacks any sort of exploration incentives. It may boast hundreds of sectors but by the time you've seen 10 of them you've seen all of them. The translation job on the game was also a low level of quality with incoherence and typos more the rule than the exception. This is made even more frustrating given that the story is actually quite interesting and thought provoking.

    In spite of its flaws it's a game that somehow will keep drawing you in for more if you can fight through the intial learning curve.

    I used to play Parkan II a lot when I was younger. I was happy when I discovered it on Steam during a sale.
    Parkan II is a game in which you become a space captain with your own spaceship and a universe to explore. The world of this game is pretty impressive, there are a few galaxies (each ruled by a different clan), in which there are a few constellations, in which there are a few planetary systems with up to 7 (probably) planets (some of them own natural satellites) which are all visitable! Also you can chose from few different spaceship types.

    General Information:
    - Difficulty: medium/hard
    - Graphics: It's over 8 years old, but still some views (space) can be pretty impressive
    - Music: OK, it used to have a fancy Russian song at the begining, but It probably got removed.
    - Playability: a few solid hours of gameplay and side-quests (these can get boring)
    - Storyline: Not the best, not the worst (a few plot holes)
    - Bugs: Apart from some visual glitches (like planet texture going totally black) I haven't noted any bug at all.
    - Lenght: ~ 20 HOURS - very long
    - Price: Pretty decent price for such an enjoyable game, especially on sale

    Overall: 7/10

    > > When you have a spare 1 euro during a sale, I HIGHLY recommend this game for You, great time-killer < <

    The game is quite good (I played it time ago), but the Steam Version crashes on landing on a planet. Let's hope this issue is solved and it doesn't add itself to the "forgotten old bones" Collection. NOTE: As I comment in my May 28 posting, all the bugs were promptly solved by the developers and the Game works fine now! :^)
