I think this game is not bad if you play it as a RPG.
If you're looking for a space simulation game, don't buy this.
This is NOT a good simulation game.
However, you can just play it like Mass Effect.
Doing quests, shooting bad guys, selling loots, and upgrading your ship.
You can feel totaly free to playing in this game (although some people are too free to understanding how to play it).
Free style RPG
High C/P value (it's very cheap)
Easy controlable - it's not simulation game, you don't neet to press a lot of key for just a simple action (such as yaw or U turn)
Bad trading design - I need to remember all item prices by myself?!
Bad documentation - and it cause some player hard to know how to play, and they may think this game is trash
No friendly quest list (for reminding)
