  1. By combining a solid space flight/combat game with a solid mission structure, Battlestar gives players a fun experience.

    There’s nothing particularly special here for classic TV fans, but classic shooter fans will find a battle worth fighting.
  3. 74
    A decent space shooter that will probably disappoint hardcore fans of the show who would want more of the magic that made the show so endearing.
  4. If the difficultly was a bit more consistent and mission parameters more forgiving, then Battlestar Galactica could have been a massive hit. As-is, the game is sure to please fans of the license, but those looking for something deeper will likely be disappointed.
  5. Battlestar Galactica's biggest flaw is a brutal difficulty level that will make grown men (and women) cry and beg for their mommy. Graphics, sound and control are definitely top notch though.
  6. Will prove too frustrating for most gamers. It is best left to Galactica buffs who know the difference between a dagget and a Cylon and who are looking for any nostalgia fix that they can get their hands on.
  7. But if you're the type that will get a kick out of watching the fighters launch from the tubes on the titular ship (and those launches look a lot like they did on the TV show), and you long to put those one-eyed robots in their place, this game will entertain you enough to feed your nostalgic cravings even if none of the characters or even the robots look all that familiar.

The graphics are awsome, and the story line is good. Only problem I have is they made the game missions overly difficult to accomplish, and therefore take some of the fun out of playing. That is why I only give it an 8. Expand

    The Game is entertaining, the graphics some of the best I've seen, and they've added in all the original sounds, but the levels are The Game is entertaining, the graphics some of the best I've seen, and they've added in all the original sounds, but the levels are just too difficult. Not only are you watching your back, but the backs of your team mates, who seem not to give a hoot about yours! If only the missions were shorter, or you could save more often... Collapse
