Someone rated this a ONE?! You HAVE to be kidding. I think that Desura needs to have a requirement for writing an actual review if someone rates a game so low; we are required to write them when we award a TEN.
Anyhow, I give this very good game an "8" because this isn't the full game. It does crash a bit, but, the potential is there for something very special. The developer has been patching and working on content additions.
Keep up the good work!
Game is really buggy. Randomly slows down and speeds up. Interface is clunky. Movement controls are ok, when they work. I was unable to move at all 30 seconds after starting, restarting the game fixed that, but why bother. It might be ok with some work, but there have been better games like it out for a long time, like EV Nova. I like to give games a chance, but couldn't get more than 30 minutes in before I was fed up with all the bugs. Will check it out again after some updates.
Hi, the game is very nostalgic, reminds me a lot of starflight... I have only experienced one crash, when clicking on save data in scanning. The immersion is spot on, your crew seem to have issues with themselves, they talk to you, and they are constantly informing me of things happening. I was near an asteroid one time, and they turned on the tactical screen thing informing me of it. Got some nice ore and sold it in the station.
So far it seems to have all the elements, exploration, mining, combat...they appear to be fitting together nicely. The amount of polish since the alpha is amazing...like a completely different game.
I do recommend it if you like space action type rpg games.
