Jan 27, 2018This game had a great potential to be an ace combat clone with cell shading and good gameplay. Unfortunately the developer has lost interestThis game had a great potential to be an ace combat clone with cell shading and good gameplay. Unfortunately the developer has lost interest about halfway through the project, turned to pumping out thousands of aircraft that all look the same; instead of fixing major bugs and updating the story. Even with the new planes, only 8 are playable in campaign. Suffice to say... this game is a cautionary tale of what happens to early access games.… Expand
Jul 17, 2016Note: 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.… Expand
Sep 13, 2015I 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)… Expand
