    Still, there’s plenty more to keep them satisfied, and the game’s rough presentation and slightly disappointing campaign are easy to forgive when the basic gameplay is so solid.

    It has quality in some of its parts, and some dogfights are truly fun and exciting. Unfortunately there are some big problems: the challenge level of some missions is completely unbalanced, and technically the game has a lot of glaring flaws.

    There's a great arcade flight sim in here somewhere. Vector Thrust offers a huge number of unlockable planes, thrilling dogfights and a bevy of modes, but its abysmal campaign and wildly inconsistent quality should have been caught in Early Access.

    Vector Thrust is fun but there's lot of untapped potential that needs more work to be unleashed.

    Vector Thrust is an unfinished game that lacks of polish in many aspects.

    Early access gone wrong. The techical aspects are sometimes terribly bugged, and the single player campaign is just wrong. Ace Combat fans should just look elsewhere.

    Not a single element in this game stands out as remarkable or even remotely average. Flight Combat fans have a choice, they can download War Thunder for free and enjoy it, or they can buy Vector Thrust and despise it. Easiest. Decision. Ever.

    Note: I did get this game for free. I got it awhile back from the developer to play but I could never play it due to my laptop. Now that INote: I did get this game for free. I got it awhile back from the developer to play but I could never play it due to my laptop. Now that I upgraded to a decent Gaming PC, I can play it and give you my review on it. Getting the game for free doesn't affect my review at all.

    Like Ace Combat or HAWX? Well it's not like those games at all.

    The keyboard control is horrible, it feels like you are flying a tug boat in the air. You can't change the mouse sensitivity (it's really slow in the menu screen). If you pause the game in-game, you can't view your options nor look at the controls. If you change graphic settings, the whole game needs to be rebooted in order for it to take in effect. The in-game music doesn't put you in that fighter mood/style, and the jet fighters look like they are made out of cardboard.

    Sadly because of the horrible keyboard control, I couldn't even get past the prologue because the combat was clunky. I was trying to put out my flares so I won't get hit by a missile but I pressed every letter on the keyboard to find out it's not there. It would have been nice to pause the game to look at the controls, but that's not an option.

    I think the only decent thing about this game is that it's Steam Workshop availability in which you can use custom jet fighter skins. But so far, that workshop section is not very popular.

    I ll make it short. Vector Thrust looks bad and makes no attempt to make up for its poor graphics by having amazing flight avionics ... or atI ll make it short. Vector Thrust looks bad and makes no attempt to make up for its poor graphics by having amazing flight avionics ... or at least being fun. The unlocking system is no fun, the various planes all feel pretty much the same to fly. The enemy AI is horrible (worse than even ancient flight simulator AIs from 2 decades ago).

    Is there anything nice to say about that game?

    The cartoon-ish look is kind of unique - ... and that's it in terms of positives (and even that is a matter of taste)
