"A quirky, buggy yet awesome space, first person and real-time strategy combat game that mixes all of these elements together into a charming whole. "

    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! :^)

    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.

    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).

    Parkan II is a 3D space simulator combined with first-person action. In the game players will get an opportunity to explore a vast universe, visit different planets, their satellites, huge space stations and immense space destroyers. Players can do this in the cockpit of a spaceship, inside a tank or just with a laser rifle in hand. Gamers will have to fight against multiple enemies in outer space, on planets' surface, inside military bases or even in the debris of some ancient civilizations.The first thing that you will immediately notice about Parkan II is that it is really quite easy on the eyes. Granted, there are titles that have engines capable of higher degrees of detail and flashier special effects, but Parkan II’s graphics have a high degree of cohesiveness overall, thanks to consistent art design. There will be a large variety of ships to choose from in Parkan II, ranging from small fighter craft, larger assault craft, freighter ships, all the way up to your capital ships. The universe of Parkan II is based on what is essentially a story-driven sandbox mode where you can follow the main storyline or wander off on your own whims and have fun that way. There are many factions in the title, and while no specifics are available, it was mentioned that doing missions for or attacking the property of a faction will raise or lower your rep with them accordingly. Parkan II effectively combines two genres into one game, and if the other features were more polished, the game would be a complete success. By themselves, the space or land combat would be disappointing, but together they produce a fairly entertaining game. Even though the missions are repetitive and the universe is not that dynamic, space adventure fans will find enough to keep them occupied in the game, especially for the lowered price.

    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. ;)
