  • Summary: From Erin and Chris Roberts, the award winning designers of Wing Commander comes a game beyond the reaches of your imagination. Battle for control of the galaxy as a member of the elite 45th Squadron or take on your friends in epic, multi-player deathmatch battles. With every hour, the Coalition grows stronger, and the fall of the Alliance is at hand. Fight for Freedom! The 45th Wants You! Expand

  1. It's going to take something pretty damn special to knock this off the top spot. Now suit up and scramble soldier
  2. The overwhelming production of this game immersed me in the story. So, when I finally tore myself away from the one-player game to give the online multiplayer a try, I quickly realized that Starlancer had silently blown a huge hole in the side of my head.

    If you like space combat, online deathmatches, and blowing stuff up (with some added strategy) then by all means grab the nearest copy of Starlancer right now, you will not be disappointed.
  4. A great game for anyone who likes space COMBAT: it's fun, fluid, and well done.
  5. While the incentives to do so may be relatively sparse, you'll probably work at levels repeatedly until all mission objectives have been met. That speaks volumes.
  6. More than 75% of the time a mission entirely changes from the original mission parameters (though you usually do end up completing them), and this is what makes entering a new mission of Starlancer such an interesting experience.
  7. Controlling everything with the DC controller, especially over the often lengthy missions, will lead to cramped, achy hands, and the necessity for quick command issuing just doesn't fit well onto a gamepad.

    This is THE BEST GAME EVER made for Dreamcast. It's also THE BEST combat engine EVER for a space fighter simulation. Story and character development is weak compared to Wing Commander, but the combat engine is better. VERY fun game!!! Expand

    Great gameplay. Though it's kind of idiotic when you die and have to go back 15 levels and do the first mission.

    Fun game! You're forced to take orders from officers with 2 digit IQ's -poorly planned missions- then they chew your ass when it goes bad. Other than that the combat is easy and fun. Expand
