In my opinion, one of the greatest unknown games of all time. The story is compelling, the graphics are good for the time period, and the acting is amazing for such a low budget game. You aren't going to be thrilled by how amazing the explosions are, by the thrills of the space-borne dog-fights, or even by the cutscenes. However, allow yourself to be immersed in the game and you will put at least 20 hours into the story. The best part is that there are two routes to follow, which means another playthrough is required to get both endings, with new charcters and ships to fly.

All in all I give the game 10 out of 10. The voice acting is brilliant, the game is highly immersive, and for a game made in 2000, the graphics are great. I grew up with this game being one of my first PC experiences. Oh, did I mention? BRUCE CAMPBELL, the king of B-horror voices the main character. That should be enough to sell the game to anyone.

What can I say? 10/10 would buy again. This little gem has been a classic and to my knowledge no space fighter game has been able to live up to this, unless somebody would like to make a recommendation.

The intuitive nature to this game is beyond compelling, I've taken down multiple capital ships, overcome insane odds, all while strategically being able to manuever my craft and manage my shield and energy/ammo reserves. The ability to turbo and then slide is exactly something a space simulator should have, I'm not sure how I could play any other without it. The way the physics are set up are awkward, but make sense to how true space physics would be.

While I am extremely attached to the gameplay, everything else is top-notch. The explosions aren't amazing but still satisfying, voice acting is great and while limited the playful banter between you and your wingmen is just added fun. The only thing missing? A second game, more missions/ships, whatever else. I might check out Freespace 2 eventually and see if it can truly live up to this legend.

One of the best flight simulation games I've ever played. Extremely under-rated. The storyline is amazing and side quests are really original. Not to mention Bruce as the main character.

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

Very good space sim fighter where you play as Bruce ♥♥♥♥ing Campbell. Very underrated.

Only drawback? No widescreen support even with tweaking it.

Play it if you like games like Freespace, Tie Fighter, Wing Commander, Darkstar One

I generally love the space exploration aspect of a lot of science fiction but I've never been able to get into to many flight simulators based around the genre. Tachyon is perhaps the most accessible flight simulator I have ever played. To simulator fans, it may be too simple but it was just right for me and I had a lot of fun playing through this.

The game also features the voice talent of Bruce Campbell of Evil Dead fame.

The storyline, while classic, was well made and gripping, with a good dose of humour. The fighting was easy to grasp, but still challenging as you progress. I definitly recommend this game, even with the outdated graphics. I really wish they'd make a sequel.

One of my long time favorties. Had the demo for this with my copy of Delta Force 2 or something like that, and absolutely loved it. Went out and got the full game a little while later. Yeah, its not the best flight sim out there, but it is alot of fun in its realtive simplicity compared to Freespace2 or X-wing vs Tie-Fighter. The game will run on just about anything now a days, so it is one of the games that stays on my laptop for down time between lectures and after class.

This is one of my first ever PC based games I ever played way back in 2000, and remains to this day one of my personal favs. The graphics though now very much dated, are very good for the time and are not a negative distraction today, the controls and gamplay are easy to follow and provide hours of enjoyment as you pick a side between the corporate Galspan or the independant Bora. Although the campaign is linear to some degree, the addition of small optional elements and side missions niecely mixes things up. Both factions have a distinctive storyline and ending, and are NOT just a rehash of the same missions with different flags (minus a few decisive overlaps, for good reason). In my opinon Tachyon: The Fringe is one of Novalogics best releases and if you enjoy space combat with a decent story, it's well worth a try. Rating: 4/5

In 2000 i purchased this game retail played the ever living hell out of this game over my summers staying up till 3 or 4 in the morning just to start again and again day after day for the thrill of flying in outer space on my 333 Mghz windows 98 computer. Purchased again off a third party site in 2009 that allowed cd key to be used max 3 times played the hell out of it again used my code 3 times due to computer upgrades not played again until today when it was seen on steam... well here goes the rest of my life friends may not hear from me again till i complete both sides of the story... again and again. 10/10 to be realistic in my rating but if up to me this game would be a requirement to even be considered a gamer. Oh yea... Bruce Campbell the glorious thief from Xena but still a bad ♥♥♥

EVE's mission system (pre-EVE, by the way) coupled with the zero-G flight mechanics of Freespace form the core of an often-challenging and generally fun space combat sim with a sound and engaging campaign. The control scheme is daft and requires memorization of a full-size keyboard layout (the boxed version shipped with a huge trifold reference chart, which you may still be able to find if you're exceptionally good at Google searches). Also, If you don't have a joystick with twist/rudder support you might have to hit up Ebay for one before you start playing. BUT, if you've got the time and feel like playing a genuinely satisfying and entertaining starfighter game, this is one of the best there is.
There is a multiplayer mode, and while the online servers are quite likely dead these days, I had some great times trying to match my wits, skill and ship upgrades against opposing pilots. The real draw, however, is the campaign. Based around jobs and for-hire missions, it'll have you chasing down troublemakers for private shipping magnates or joining up with the enlisted military against common enemies, all as a mercenary pilot voiced by none other than Bruce Campbell. The voice acting is substantial, in fact, and serves the story in a way that invites you to root for the Nathan Drake-esque protagonist's otherwise short and unremarkable journey from self-interested freelancer to potential 'good guy' with a cause. You can save your earnings to buy new ships, improve your weapons payload, and add new functionality to your ship's capabilities (lateral thrust, for example).
On the downside, the learning curve is substantial, and if you want to play this game right you're going to need a flight stick with rudder controls. But smooth and enjoyable space combat and a broad range of available unique ships and environments to fly them in may have you coming back for more. Good 'ol Bruce Campbell.

Another classic game that you can burn up 10 hours in and not even notice. The graphics are of course dated, however personally this takes away little from my enjoyment. The story is still as good as it was in 2000.
