"A fun, linear 3D space combat RPG thing that has a lot going for it if you overlook it's eastern European quirkiness. "

About This Game

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.
  • Spectacular 3D real-time battle system
  • Original blend of tactical and action game play
  • Variety of missions and mission-types including stealth, hit and run and assault missions

  • Over 25 space fighters
  • Dozens of energy and missile weapons

  • A choice of eight game characters, both male and female, to form your party

A friend told me, long long time ago, that I would like this game. Sadly, I don't trust his video-game taste that much, so I ignored that...Until yesterday, I saw this game at 0,99€ because of a sale. Only an euro?! Dude, I get that back in two days by idling! So, did I like the game in the end?

Surprisingly, IT'S GOOD! Now, hear me on this one, the game is nowhere perfect. It has issues, and as usual, I will talk about the bad things of the game first, to take them out of the way.

The first, and worst issue of them all is the voice acting. HOLY MOTHER OF F#CK, THE VOICES ARE DREADFUL. They're not AS bad as games like Ride to Hell, but they're still terrible. I can understand it, since the game was made in Russia, though. Old Spanish games like Praetorians also had terrible English voice-acting...But it's still an issue in the end. The cutscenes also look really dull and outdated. Now, I know the game is old, from 2006, BUT FOR F#CK SAKE, THERE WERE GAMES LIKE HALF LIFE 2 IN 2004 ALREADY! Another problem I see with the game, is the IA. When you tell a ship to go somewhere, they try to go there in a straight line, instead of dodging anything that's on their way. I have already lost 2 ships, because they tried to go through a space-station. THEY LITERALLY DID THAT. JUST RAM INTO IT. WHAT THE F#CK, MAN?! Another pain in the ♥♥♥ is the resolution, I can't put the resolution I have on it, so it looks weird. It's not the first time I see something like this, though, games like Warcraft III already had that issue, because they where made for 4:3 screens, and now everything is widescreen. The last minor issue, is the music. Why is a minor issue? Well, it's really generic and dull...But you can get used to it. Or just mute it, and play something else on your computer.

Now, that being said, what's left is a weird game that's unique, or at least it was on it's time. A hybrid between space-strategy games and RPG, with bits of Rogue-like gameplay. If you want a comparison, let me just say: This game is like mixing "Knights of the Old Republic" 's chat system, "Homeworld" 's gameplay, and "FTL" 's Rogue-like and RPG elements.

You start on some sort of "Space-Burger-King", were you can read news, trade, and go into new adventures. Whatever quest you accept, will send you into a new map, with the stuff you gotta do: Escort someone, send cargo, hunt someone who was a bounty on their heads, or just plain killing spree. The more you play, the more pilots you will get to join your team, and the more you advance, the more stuff you will be able to buy.

The game's graphics might be outdated, but for a GOD DAMN EURO, this game has quite a lot to bring. If you're a fan of Homeworld, or FTL, you might like the game. If you liked them both, then there's no reason NOT to buy the game. Just get ready to get your ears blown up by bad voice acting. Oh, and if you're interested, you can get the sequels quite cheap this week as well. I think the second game was 2€, and the third one 3€. Getting them all for 6€ is quite a deal, on my opinion.

I've had so much fun with this game. Some good mods available on the publishers website that enhance the play as well. This game represents a playstyle that has died out sadly. Check out the first two if you like this one.

GREAT game, just started getting into it. Its confusing to learn the controls at first, their IS no tutorial in the first installment, but totally worth looking at, if your a fan of full control of up to 6 fighter units, and a mother ship (making it 7), and full scale squad tactics. If you've played eve online, think of it like eve, but with out the first person view point.

Star Wolves is a hard game to describe. It's probably best described as a space battle manager where you are managing this mercenary group, Star Wolves, in performing missions for the highest bidder (but you do get to choose). You don't control the crafts directly, but you give waypoints, and attack orders, missile launches and defenses, and so on. You can configure each fighter for different roles: missile defense (jamming), support, escort, attack, and so on. The mothership is also under your command and serves as repair and rearm station for all the fighters, and it is armed with multiple turrets (albeit, it can be overwhelmed). The idea is to defeat the enemy forces without suffering losses of your own by managing your resources: the pilots and the fighters, carefully. Each pilot has his or her own skill tree and can be unlocked with experience points, which opens up special abilities that can be tapped in battle, such as better accuracy, double defense for 30 seconds, and so on. There is also a bit of trading and salvage as you can often salvage weapons and missiles off destroyed enemy ships, and sometimes, even steal whole fighters. Plot is somewhat on the lame side, and most dialogs are in text only, but graphics are good. All in all, it depends what sort of gamer are you. If you want hands-on fly-the-ship kind this is NOT for you. But if you like giving orders and see them carried out this is good for you.

Nice surprise.

I got this on sale for 2 dollars to try after finding another surprise. I had gotten S.P.A.Z. (space pirates and zombies) from some cheap bundle on the net and found it to be really addicting.... costing me 80 hours of time. I had never played these type of space games and I was looking for another. Found this cheap and it is really addictive too. It is old, so yes, there are issues but, if you get it for really cheap, can't complain.

--Sound issues... I just turn it down and play the radio, don't loose much from the game.
--Contols... I have not had a problem. I use pinnacle so I mapped my 360 controller to most of the keys I use from the keyboard. I keep my left hand on that for "keyboard" controls and drive with my right on the mouse. Works great for me.
--Resolution scaling issues. The game does not like to be forced into large resolutions. Although I have fiqured out how to make it work well enough for me and the game plays nice stretched across 68" of real estate across 3 monitors in Eyefinity.

It is addictive and fun. IF you can get past some of the issues and get it on sale, it is a good $2 well spent.
