  1. This game is perfectly fine as a solo game. Not every FPS in the world needs to be Co-Op.

    It doesn't rely on technical gimmicks. Instead, it delivers cathartic action and an absorbing story. [July 2003, p.114]

    A very satisfying single-player FPS, coated with a fat-free topping of space combat. The lack of secrets and multiplayer modes also means an utter lack of replay value, but I felt nothing but satisfaction at the rousing conclusion.

    Fun at times (especially in the first few hours before the minor annoyances begin stacking up) and does a nice job of mixing up run and gun and sniper action, but the AI is buggy and sometimes the game absolutely drags.

    Isn't the greatest game ever made, but it certainly isn't the worst. I personally had a very good time with it, and recommend it to anyone looking for a good, solid singleplayer FPS fix.

    It's tough to overlook its frequent pauses for loading, brain-dead enemies, unrealistic animations, and repetitive graphics. [Aug 2003, p.122]
  7. For all it brings to the table - space combat, Halo's shield, varied levels - not one single aspect is truly worthy of praise.

    Hello? Hello? You reviewers really are a herd out there aren't you? Mooing 'Halo Halo' as if one... I utterly hated the Hello? Hello? You reviewers really are a herd out there aren't you? Mooing 'Halo Halo' as if one... I utterly hated the drudgery of the heavy footed protagonist of Halo, stumbling around, driving weighty boring tanks etc etc yawn yawn. Oh well, I suppose those who can't spell and don't know what sentences are can't really be trusted to give a valuable opinion. Mace Griffin is LEAGUES ahead of Poolo - fast, violent, frenetic, HUGE, satisfying weapons, enemies that shoot back rather than scream and run away, challenging enemy AI ... Love it love it love it !

That and the minigun... and the space cowboy pistola.... lets just say the ppl who made the weapons knew what they were doing. Halo is better though, by far. Expand

    I actually quite like this game. It's got decent graphics, an okay storyline, and pretty awesome gameplay.

    I actually quite like this game. It's got decent graphics, an okay storyline, and pretty awesome gameplay.
    This game is kinda like Halo, but it takes place in space. It's a first person shooter and space combat game from the creators of Star Trek Invasion & Battlestar Galactica (Warthog Games).
    If you enjoyed Battlestar Galactica the Game or Star Trek Invasion, then I suggest you try this game out in the future.
    The only two problems I had with this game is that it gets ridiculously hard later on and the soundtrack is pretty mediocre.

Most of the reviews are correct about the flaws. But this game delivers 20 hours of solid FPS action with pretty good graphics too. If you are a fan of FPS, then this is a must own title. Especially since it can be found for $20. Expand
