"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.

Well I was really impressed with this game. I never really enjoyed Homeworld but I really enjoyed Star Wolves. The gameplay sort of reminds me of Mechcommander 2 as far as RTS combat goes, I like being able to pause and give orders to my units. Most of the lower level weapons are useless, and there is no point keeping lower tier fighters around in your mother ship, but these faults are minor. The campaign is fairly long and the game is just plain fun, which is the way games are supposed to be. I only paid $1.39 Canadian for this and it was an absolute steal, at regular price it's still a very good buy. This was one of the best games I bought in 2014, and a pleasant surprise considering the price, highly recommend this game.

If you're into spacegame with a twist of rpg mixed in? Starwolves is a great game. Although a bit old I guarantee a few dozan hour of enjoyment for those into the whole genre.

1c company truly is a great (underappreciated) gamehouse that should make a lot more of these type of games

They clearly got it down to a science.

The good thing about these type of games is that your spending most of your time looking at a tactical map, so dated graphics aren't a problem.

Once it starts rolling it's fun and engaging.

As cool as it is to fly around in 3D space killing pirates, this game plays with a sluggish feel. Combat is relatively simple though moving around objects and asteroid fields can be a pain it takes practive to have a good view point to make efficient moves. The guitar solos for ambient music really go well with the backdrop of your travels.

03/13/2015 - an update improved the game performance and no longer feels sluggish, if they are listening let up bind our own keys!

03/22/2015 - I dont understand the games progression, like its a joke youre not meant to beat the 50k pirate bounty
