Om dette spillet

Star wolves is a 3D space RPG with deep strategy and tactical elements. The game thrusts players into a world of freelance space hunters in the XXI-XXII century A.D. during a time of political crisis for the all-powerful Empire and the three mega-corporations that control all the known worlds. Corruption prospers planet-side and only space can give a man his freedom, but not without a cost: space is not a safe place anymore. Human space pirates, rogue AI computers that rebelled against humanity and empire patrol ships roam space in search of easy prey.
Players begin the game as a bounty hunter with little more than an old, run-down space fighter and a dream, but as they advance in the game and prosper, their piloting and battle skills improve, allowing access to more advance spacecraft. Players can control a party of up to six bounty hunters, each possessing different skills, abilities and personality.
Team tactics give players vast opportunities in battles when shear fire power isn't enough. Tactical ruses, planning and executing ambushes or deploying spaceships' special abilities provide cunning commanders the ability to crush enemies according to their style of play.

Star Wolves is a well designed Russian real-time tactical RPG set within a futuristic space setting. This game was developed by talented professionals from X-Bow Software, a small company which later evolved into Ino-Co Plus (games which they have created include such titles as Fantasy Wars, Elven Legacy, Majesty 2 and the Warlock series). Despite being a relatively old game, Star Wolves possesses all the necessary qualities in order to leave a good impression on the player even today, 11 years after it first came out on the market.

Gameplay is the foundation of this strategic RPG. While both in-depth and intense, gameplay in Star Wolves could hardly be called original. Prior to the beginning of every assignment, the player is tasked to equip his team of mercenary pilots with ships, weapons and various systems which can be acquired on the market and are then installed on the ships. Later during the missions, the pilots operate these ships, and every piece of equipment and weaponry plays it's part in the players success. The Mothership also plays a crucial role and can also be upgraded with different weapons and systems. During in-game battles, the possible destruction of the Mothership equals mission failure, and the player thus has to protect his base ship at all costs. Every member of the team has a skill tree which develops as the player progresses in the game. There are four different branches in this skill tree all of which have different roles, both offensive and defensive. Each character in your team will have a small range of unique abilities which will also be highly important during the single player campaign, and the player must use them wisely. In-game battles are more or less predictable, and the player will often find himself reloading the game in order to prevent loss of his own fighter ships. Regardless, the way space combat is implemented in Star Wolves is interesting and full of fiery explosions, so fans of Homeworld and other space strategies will find it to their liking. During the course of their adventures, players will encounter different factions ranging from pirate scum and private military companies of mega corporations to ancient alien races and menacing robots. All of these factions possess their own unique units, and every enemy should be dealt with by means of a unique approach and strategy. Interface within the game is simple and is very easy to get used to, although sometimes the camera can be annoying due to several levels of the spacial dimension which is present in the game. For this reason, the player must learn to raise and lower the trajectory of his Mothership during missions, but this can be easily achieved and poses no problems once gotten used to. In a short summary, gameplay in Star Wolves is based on simple roleplaying elements, and better ships with good weaponry manned by experienced pilots will dominate the space. Battles usually take form of a limited scale, although as the plotline progresses, there will be certain assignments with greater sized battles.

In Star Wolves, the graphics, despite the game's age, are still very neat and pleasent to observe. While being mostly identical throughout the entire campaign, the surrounding environment will still alter somewhat from mission to mission, mainly because the player will progress throughout the plotline by doing assignments in different star systems. In game, the different variety of ships and other structures all have their unique appearance and alot of flavor text. In short, the atmosphere is very consistent and by it's quality shows that is was done with skill and attention. On the downside, the cinematics are hilarious (in a good way), even though the creators of the game obviously didn't intend them to be like that. Still, it takes special skill to make cinematic graphics, so it's no big deal. Audio is of lesser quality, although it's not terrible. Background music in Star Wolves is repetitive, but by no means annoying. The sounds themselves (lasers, explosions, etc) are run of the mill, nothing special or dynamic, but again, as stated earlier in this review, Star Wolves is about gameplay, the sound is present, and that's good enough.

As an afterword, it can be concluded with confidence, that Star Wolves is a good RPG which players will enjoy. The game does in-fact require some time getting used to, but if the player is willing to spend this time, he won't be disappointed.

Post Scriptum - Interesting fact: The future name of X-Bow Software was already present in Star Wolves, under the name of InoCo - one of the three mega corporations which struggle for space dominance. It seems that the team at X-Bow liked their own creation so much that they later decided to name their new company after it :)

Very solid space strategy with a bit of rpg. Highly recommended for Homeworld and Firefly fans. Nice story about space mercenaries with an epic ending. It's quite hard at higher difficulty. Missions fit nicely with story and are not similar to each other. Overall a very good and addictive game! :)

I gotta start with the fact the I consider this game to be a classic one; I remember playing it a long time ago in a distant galaxy. Now that that's over with =>

Any CONS that this game might have? As much as I like it the game is not perfect albeit far from it:
- the AI and pathing are horrible(or close to horrible?) Not only will your enthusiastic pilots fly too close to a station but sometimes will fly right through it(uhhm, kboom anyone?)
- Voice acting (two worlds anyone?), it would be funny if it weren't so bad
- Might feel a little rough on the edges with the movement and camera.
- Any difficulty level below Hard might make the game too easy.
- Space battles are not that complex
- A little bit linear.

The PROS of this game ? Well imo, I guess it feels like a RPG Homeworld game( Maybe it can be compared to Dawn of War 2 and WH 40K? )
- Voice acting, (same actor different accents? ), it would be bad if it weren't so funny
- It's different (or it was at least)
- Quite addictive
- It's fun
- Offers multiple endings (only 2)
- Decent amount of ship and character customisation.


All in all it might be a little overpriced considering what it offers but if you can get it on a sale it's a definite purchase for space RTS and RPG fans and a definite don't buy for people who don't like the genre.

This game is a classic. It is a squad-style RTS, but not in the sense of regular RTS, you can pause the gameplay and issue specific orders and there is no resource upkeep and unit production to worry about. I found it very enjoyable and I don't like RTS for the most part.

Good story, fun gameplay, good RTS like progression, lots of tactics and stuff to try, never ran dry.

Also I got it to run on 1080 resolution by simply editing the config file in the directory. Very basic.

In the entire time played I experienced 3 crashes:
1. Tried to put an escape pod as a pilot of a ship.
2. Tried to drag an item off of the screen.
3. Saved right before a scripted event and the save was corrupt.

Other than that, no issues!

Also to those saying it is unplayable on newer systems: on my new system it was getting 400 fps. Eat that!

To the people having control issues, you're not supposed to click the tiny fighter planes in the middle of space ffs. Use hotkeys 1-6 and ` for the main ship. Also pause in between stuff to issue tactical orders.

This is a game I played many years ago. Since it was on steam I bought it and gave it a spin.
Still holds up remarkably well in my opinion

It is a tactical space game where you command your own mecenary unit. You pick up characters along the way with different skills, which you can develop rpg wise (both active and passive skills). There is looting weapons/systems from the battlefield. It feels like a party based rpg but in space. You have some freedom in choosing additional missions, but mostly you progress with the story line. There is a ton of interesting stuff to buy between missions, like fighters, weapons or mothership systems. Graphics still holdup well in my opinion. I did encounter a bug when sometimes shots don't do dmg and the only way is to restart the game (but to be fair it happens very rarely).

Bottom line is it's a nice little gem for space game fans
