I'm a modder, musician, and moderator at everythingeaw. The rest of the internet knows me by my music alias, Auburn X. These days I focus on music production and live performances but I still come back to modding from time to time.
As a huge fan of RPG games like KOTOR and WoW, while also a huge fan of free-form space games like EVE, X3, and Evochron Mercenary, this game was made for me.
The combat is surprisingly exciting, with a soundtrack that fits the bill and even responds to things in the game. (Take a big hit, and the music filters to a lower volume for a second as if you went deaf from an explosion).
The RPG elements are wonderfully integrated and anyone experienced with loot based RPG's will be comfortable, after a few adjustments. You can loot dead enemies and there's also random materials to be found in space a la mining and herbalism from WoW. Enemies can have booby trapped loot, which you must disarm (Not sure what happens when you don't).
There is a main storyline as well as side quests you can partake in. These missions have astounding variety and all are quite entertaining. The developer even put in small details like making your screen go static when you activate a jamming beacon. Quests reward you with credits, items and gear, sometimes even allowing you to hop into a totally new ship.
The game also has quite a sense of humor, as you'll find when you read some of the item descriptions and even observing the various "trash" loots in space. I've come across animal crackers and silly hats, and there's some funny stuff in the item descriptions that I don't want to give away :P
All in all I give it a 9/10, and any fans of either space games or RPG's will find something to enjoy and its worth the 5 minute download to check out.
It's a lot of fun trying out different styles of music in this game. There is a distinct difference between playing Swing Jazz songs and Slamming Brutal Death Metal in this game and it's awesome to explore.
The gameplay itself is very satisfying and has some mechanics which gives it extremely high replayability. The ability to upgrade the weapons on your ship (the projectile effects also improve as you upgrade) adds much depth and it's an awesome feeling to see your firepower increase over time. The addition of rare weapons motivates you to scour your library as well (I have a rare megablaster and at level 3 it now has 1000 firpower :O )
I give it a 9/10 only because of some technical problems with mouse control which I and others have encountered, making the game quite difficult at times but nonetheless enjoyable. Definitely worth the $10 and then some.
Not sure why people are giving it low ratings, the mod does exactly what it is designed to do. Good first time.
An exemplary total conversion mod. Well-balanced, lots of variety in content and many gameplay strategies for each faction. Any Star Wars fan will love this mod. I'm going to be playing this mod for years after its release.
