Classic game from Novalogic - it really brings back the nostalgia from the demo I got from buying Comanche 4 around 10 years ago, but goes a lot further. There are dozens of hours of gameplay and lots of customisation for your crafts, and that's without taking the other branch (the game splits into two about 1/4 of the way in, and you get to choose between fighting for the good guys or the rebels). 8/10

Triple six, five, forked tongue
Subatomic penetration rapid fire through your skull
How I shot it on one taking it back to the days of trying to lose control
Swerving in a blaze of fire, raging through my bones
Oh ♥♥♥♥ I'm feeling it - Takyon
Hell yeah, ♥♥♥♥ yeah, I feel like killing it - Takyon
Alright that’s tight, what its like to experience - Takyon

Out of the blue, in through the back
Door coming through like ♥♥♥♥ what was that
Man I don’t know, but it made me feel so heated
How we creep without showing you jack
♥♥♥♥ from below, give a ♥♥♥♥ if you know
Cuz even if you did, you’d keep coming back
Back for more, need it man you're addicted to the heat
We make beats catch
Beat it til it bleeds to death, each track
Like EPMD snappin necks as we tap energy from everything on and off the map

Oh ♥♥♥♥ I'm feeling it - Takyon
Hell yeah, ♥♥♥♥ yeah I feel like killing it - Takyon
Alright that’s tight what its like to experience - Takyon

Takyon, shot down your throat like a keg of beer
Choke on the smoke we in and exhale til the whole chamber is clear
Haters act so ♥♥♥♥ing weird
Try to stain this atmosphere
But they can't cuz its way too sheer
How to make a hater disappear

Take ♥♥♥♥ where it ain’t never been
♥♥♥♥ what you thought could not comprehend
This ♥♥♥♥ if I fisted your brain with it
10-9-8-7-triple 6-5-forked tongue
Criminal level crunk lightning storm
Get out the way or get up torn
Ain’t a picture big enough to fit
What we dig up from the core
Of all that they forgot ever was
Militant march of this war

Takyon - taking them down
All we see is blood
Takyon - turning them out
How to trick out and freak that buzz

Oh ♥♥♥♥ I'm feeling it - Takyon
Hell yeah, ♥♥♥♥ yeah I feel like killing it - Takyon
Alright that’s tight what its like to experience - Takyon

Lunar eclipse forcing you to trip
Off the moonlit fire we spray
Cryonic haunted bullets hollow tipped with toxic waste
So here’s the deal, if you don’t feel ill
Don’t want it nowhere near my zone
That ♥♥♥♥ is dead, can't nobody get
With that ♥♥♥♥ gets dial toned

Takyon - ♥♥♥♥♥ slappin ♥♥♥♥♥ clots and clones
Takyon - settin off unibombs inside your dome

Oh ♥♥♥♥ I'm feeling it - Takyon
Hell yeah, ♥♥♥♥ yeah I feel like killing it - Takyon
Alright that’s tight what its like to experience - Takyon
