  1. Spaceforce can't be recommended despite some interesting ideas.
  2. The opening battles are simply too difficult to play. [Aug 2007, p.91]

    This game recieves full score from me for several reasons. First, the amazing soundtrack. It alone makes me want to play the game. It really flungs you out in the galaxy. Second, the graphics. It to is magical. Combined with the music it creates the best space-sim feeling in a game I have played. Third reason, the fights. Tough adrenaline pumping action. Forth reason is the exploration. Many systems to explore, many species, many secrets. The game has a few downsides, like the steep learning curve, short story and repetetive missions. However, it's better to have an advanced game than a simple one and the non story-mode gameplay is almost as fun as the story-mode. So the biggest downside is repetetive missions, but that doesn,t matter much when you want to fix medals and explore the galaxy. SpaceForce: Rouge Universe is simply one of the best sci-fi games if you like the feeling of really explore space in a beautiful and fantastic way. Full Review »

    3 points full for the visual development team(for in-game models, animations, designs, etc BUT not those ... FMV). It is eye catchy and can easily fools anyone with still shots, however it is a big let down when you are in the cockpit for the first time. Voice-Over, Sound Effects, Controls (Keyboard & Mouse) and playability shows no good sign at all. Even the decade old Freespace 2 is alot better and engaging in every sense. Definitely not worth it unless the publisher decide to patch a major overhaul a.s.a.p. Full Review »

    I like space games, even not great ones. I've played everything from Elite on the 8 bits through the X games, Frontier, Freelancer etc. But I didn't like this, it felt flimsy and cobbled together. As others have said the onboard computer's messages are annoying, the NPC chat is repetitive, and the interface is both hard to understand and doesn't look good. I would say you should buy Dark Star One over this, if you have exhausted all the better options (like X3). Full Review »
