    Well I just started to play this and I think it has a lot of potential and a lot of bugs. First as you know you can do any thing.... however its far to open and unless you know where the action is it's kinda weak. Second there is A LOT of cliping issues, try to land on top of a building, and you will know. Also with long fllights you will see that your ship will consantly roll and Well I just started to play this and I think it has a lot of potential and a lot of bugs.

Second there is A LOT of cliping issues, try to land on top of a building, and you will know. Also with long fllights you will see that your ship will consantly roll and you have to adjust to this and while on foot if you head almost north South East or West and you let go of the mouse you will see that cammera will move to directly on the compass rows. .... there is more but... the developers of UC had a leagle battle about the publisher changeing the price to $19.00 and well sorry 3000AD I can see why. This game is not bad for the current price, BUT IT NEEDS A PATCH TO BE GOOD. Expand

    The level of freedom afforded is quite unparalleled for a game of this type. [Apr 2004, p.72]
  2. To enjoy the game requires hours of exhaustive research and patience that most gamers don’t have.
  3. There are still a ton of controls in the newest version of the Battlecruiser series … but 3000 AD has done a good job in making them a little more accessible for things that you will do most often during the game.
