    This cheap, tacky space combat sim is a stinking mess, insulting the name of the series merely by presuming to associate itself with it. [Mar 2008, p.83]
  2. An insult to both fans, and the creators of the show, and serves as a lesson for developers on how not to treat licensed material. [Feb 2008, p.78]

    Pros: You get to fly ships and shoot cylons Cons: you need better graphics card than you need for say, Halo, but not nearly as good a game. Pros: You get to fly ships and shoot cylons Cons: you need better graphics card than you need for say, Halo, but not nearly as good a game. IMHO, they should have included this game free if you bought the boxed set of the DVD TV series. The controls are akward and the game play is two dimensional. Essentially you're always on a flat plane. Yeah, below you, you can see the other shps in the fleet, but you have no X axis. If they'd made this a first person space flght sim with some compelling storyline it would be a good game. But they didn't. Full Review »

    I bought this game for $10 at a used book store. It wasn't even worth $5. Maybe $1 (the price of a candy bar). Or, better, yet, for free, because this game resembles free Internet games I have played that do it better.

    This game's list price was actually $20. That is a robbery.

    If you want a 2D space arcade shooter, you can play this game: http://www.arcadetown.com/realspace2/index.asp

    Twice as fun, twice as long, twice as difficult, and honestly I think this game may have been based on it. Any way you slice it, just about anything is a better value than the 1 hour of your freetime it will take to complete this game.

    The only reason I am giving this game a 3 is because I know there are some people out there who will enjoy the game just because it is Battlestar Galactica.
