    Once you commit to the experience, you're rewarded with a remarkably flexible campaign that feels like it reflects your successes, albeit in a rather detached way.
  2. This is an enhanced version of 2004's Starshatter that adds improved AI and production values, but that's about it.

    The campaign is great, you start out as a pilot with missions that are a dynamic campaign so if you lose a destroyer one mission, it's goneThe campaign is great, you start out as a pilot with missions that are a dynamic campaign so if you lose a destroyer one mission, it's gone for good. You can work your way up and be promoted up the ranks to actually captain a frigate, destroyer, cruiser and even the carrier, assigning mission to flights and taking giving orders to capital ships. An added bonus was the semi-Newtonian physics so you can thrust one direction and turn, continuing to move in the original direction. You could also enter a planets atmosphere for ground strikes and adjust to flying in atmosphere.
    Truly a hidden gem in the gaming world, it had so much potential. You could do multiplayer and even create your own missions and scenarios. There was a modding community who created new ships as well. I'll have to dust this one off again.
