Average User Score: 5.1Sep 27, 2012While some of the issues brought up in the negative reviews are true I don't think they actually describe why some people dislike the game.While some of the issues brought up in the negative reviews are true I don't think they actually describe why some people dislike the game. This game has an extremely steep learning curve which in some cases leads to an unpleasant first experience, after which no second chance is given.
Also, if you're reading this please note that one of the negative reviews (Katana622) may have given the game zero points but he (she? they?) generally had very good things to say. While I can't speak for him/her/them I believe at least one zero point rating was by mistake.
I generally greatly enjoy this game, but there are just a few lingering issues that are keeping me from getting 100% behind it--a few balance issues, the steep learning curve, lack of map variety, and a few glitches I've run across.
The game play is a fairly straightforward red vs blue space combat game with a lot of high-speed dogfights and some very striking visual elements. (I'm honestly baffled at PC gamer's comments--I've certainly no complaint about how the ships handle, and teamwork actually is pretty important . . .)
TL;DR; I think you'll enjoy this game a lot if you can make it past the brutal learning curve.… Expand
