"If you like puzzles and interactive storytelling you should buy this til its bollocks fall off."

"So after all that, I liked Star Control: Revengeance. It's a light, snacky bit of fun and adventure in a somewhat awkward package, like an attractive, sexually curious Dalek. "

"...and everyone's got googly eyes. Yeah, that's some astringent satire you've got going on there, Totally Accurate Battlegrounds; truly, the spirit of Jonathan Swift lives on through thee."

"The plot had some interesting twists, and I was engaged, and that's all you can ask for, really. Well, it's not all; I could ask for a handjob, but I'm pretty sure you didn't bring the cream."

Recommended January 11
"There are a lot of things wrong with it that it excuses by hiding behind the "arty game" label, but overall, it offers the catharsis of a simple, uplifting story with lively, engaging characters."

"I've got a fondness for this sort of FTL-style procedural storytelling, and by strange coincidence, I also enjoy the counter-centric Batman: Arkham-style combat, so this shit is quite my jam."
