    With competent gameplay and a great concept, if it had had more investment behind it and a bit of a polish, this game could have been excellent. [Issue#111, p.84]

    Strike Suit Zero Director's Cut is a good game on the XBox One and if you have a hankering for this genre than I do suggest you check out this game.

    Strike Suit Zero still has its issues, but the Director's Cut does a much better job of accentuating its strengths while hiding its weaknesses.

    Space battle with mecha-ships on an oriental trippy music at low price. Nuff'said.
  5. It may lack in variety, but the core conceit of Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut is both sound and consistently enjoyable. Swoop in with your ship, turn into a robot, destroy everything, get the hell out. It's not subtle, but it is good, wholesome, dumb fun.

    Five big new scenarios are enough to make it a valuable product. But it could have been much better with some necessary refinements.

    Those who are fans of space combat games (e.g. Homeworld, Wing Commander or X-Wing) can do no harm by checking out this game on the Xbox One, and those who haven't delved into the world of space combat to date should take a close look at this title too, as there is some fun to be had.

    Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut is a decent game that simply needs more variety.

    Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut isn't a bad game, it's just not a particularly great one. If you're screaming out for a space combat game in the Colony Wars mould, however, this will certainly fit the bill. Just don't expect to be playing Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut for a particularly long time after you've beaten the missions the first time around.

    The next gen space combat simulator now plays almost as good as it looks, even if there are still many more improvements needed.

    To be clear, Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut is still not an easy game. It is a better-paced and better balanced game, allowing even relative newcomers to zero-gravity dogfights to be able to build up the skills to become ace pilots.

    Sometimes, simple is better. Maintaining focus on frantic space battles that move quickly and wrap up before you have time to regret what you're playing would have made Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut more energetic and compelling.

It is consistently enjoyable, and by no means easy. Swooping around ships in your suit is unique to this game, and is strangely satisfying. The graphics look absolutely sweet on Xbox One, with the art style being as new and radical as anyone could want, with the bright and coloured backgrounds of outer space. Full Review »
