I bought it for few cents, paid too much. This is ablsolute, pure, 100% non-working s***. I tested it on windows 10 x64, windows 7 x64 sp1 and windows xp sp3 (win7 and win xp via virtualbox). The only working part of it is the *.bat file, that has to be modified in order to idle cards.

There might be some nastalgia playing into my review of this game. It's recalls my favorite time in gaming, when titles like Terminal Velocity and Descent Dominated PC gaming. The tourtorial is a bit lacking so taking some time learning the controls from the options menu first will go a long way, the instant action option is a nice touch and multiplayer (with some system tweaking) is workable and entertaining at lans.

To address the Negative reviews:

There seems to be a trend of people assuming that this new wave of old games getting re-released on steam are similar to 'remakes' available on consoles. These are more like diving in the bargin bin at a local retailer. They aren't repolished with new fixes for modern machines, most will require a few extra steps to get running and this should be expected if you are buying anything before 2009. This one is no exception, luckily there aren't as many issues as with some other titles. I was able to get it up and running by right clicking on the gamelauncher.bat in the install folder and running as administrator. After running it once this way it launches fine from steam. Just so you don't think I have some odd setup that might be old enough to be compatible:

i7 3770k
16 gigs of ddr3
Geforce 780
Win7 x64
240gig SSD

Pretty hard to evaluate a game you cannot run (cmd window disappears immediately). Tried every recommendation (admin, etc) and never got it to run on my Win7 x64 system. Paid money for this.
So actually, I guess the review is easy.

Echelon is a classic flight sim similar to X-Wing, Tie-Fighter or Crimson Skies. It's fun, but often unreasonably difficult. This release, however, is broken. It runs, but requires a lot of work to get running. Buy at your own risk. Also, for some reason they replaced the old menu music with something awful.
