I still have no idea what it is about. When the game came out for free, I downloaded a copy, but I still have not found any instruction manuals at all. I'm actually still pretty sure that I do not know half the controls yet, and what I do know came from hitting every individual key on the keyboard and waiting to see what happens. Honestly, it feels like the creators are just yelling, "Screw you!" at me repeatedly. So all I can really say is don't bother unless you have played the other games, and I'm not even sure that is even good advice. The creators should take note that people like to know what is going on. Full Review »

    Since I'm also a sci fi fan and into these space sims games, I rammed into this title and hit an asteroid field. Now, I need help from Since I'm also a sci fi fan and into these space sims games, I rammed into this title and hit an asteroid field. Now, I need help from Smart Derek, but he's always doing something else! (Making this world even bigger?) True, graphics don't make a game, but, really, graphics here is just plain outdated even on the latest from Smart. True, this game's got a huge dynamic universe, but, truly, it needs life not statistics. Frankly, there is no game out there alike this one because it's unique. No one else has or had the guts to make a game like Smart. This game 's got potentials, lots of it. But, Smart would need talents real talents, to realize this potential into the next franchise. Let's face it, we've all played the same games over and over. It's time for some change. 4 for the uniqueness and concept. 5 because it's Smart's. -1 because no tutorials. A game should be fun afterall. Full Review »
