    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! :^)

    Was sucked into this by the visuals, and while they proved to be nice...there's not much else about Parkan 2 that is. Most budget "X lite" space titles are solid games that just feel a little cheap, but otherwise work well - Parkan 2 does not. I ran into crashes every five or ten minutes, as well as graphical lockups and flickering textures in station and ship interiors.

    Combat in space is pretty standard fare, aside from enemies being able to pull total 180s in a second or less when coming straight at you guns blazing. There is no planetary landing like in Evochron, just a load screen...and planetary combat is very boring, with what seems to just be fights against maintenance and security bots. The ambient music is nice, but the voicework ranges from disturbingly corny to so flatly delivered you're waiting for a script attached to a long-dead voice artist to fly past.

    Very unimpressed, and at the price I snagged this for, using store credit on a certain place filled with little green men...it still cost too much.

    Very addictive game, great game concept! Fly the galaxy in a "ship", land on planets and take over outposts, board ships and plunder the loot, upgradeable combat suit and ship(s).

    Yes, the game crashed, once, and not once since. Easy (enough) to read displays. Decent graphics for its time (and for most indie-level games today), wide open play, great sandbox feel (after you play awhile, it opens up).

    This is actually a pretty good game, kinda slow at the start and there is a learning curve, but if you stick with it the game is quite enjoyable. Though one thing that can be quite a pain is that at times the story can be a little hard to follow, but the log book can save the day there. There's quite a bit of space in this game, and the landing and moving about on the planets is quite unique (and quite well done to boot)! Let me say that I am a big fan of the X series (X Beyond the Frontier, X2, X3r, X3TC & X3 AP), and while is ain't X, nor is it ment to be, the fact remains that I find this game just about as interesting and enjoyable (and in some ways more maybe even).

    All in all this is an interesting take on a space sim. So, if your in to that, then you just might want to give this a try.

    This is a great game. Sure it's a bit quirky, but it's got so much about it to love. If you like space gaming AT ALL, give this one a shot. Seriously, I say this as an expert. ;)
