  1. The design, structure and implementation of this game are wonderful. From the opening levels, with training that took us back to the classic X-Wing, right through to the epic dogfights of later levels, that erm, take us right back to X-Wing, Yager manages to impress.
  2. Although the levels have been extremely well designed, and variety has been added, there's only so much variety that you can add to an arcade style air shooter and sometimes playing one mission feels very similar to the last, save for the difficulty and the added storyline.
  3. A brilliant attempt at creating a completely engaging and interactive 'living' world. It is clear that an awful lot of care and attention has gone into sweating the details.
  4. 70
    Great fun, but could have been better.
  5. Stylistically, it's all neon pinks and shiny gadgetry. Think "Halo" or "Phantasy Star Online" viewed from above. Its strange then, for such an organic looking game that the control interface is awfully clunky.
  6. 60
    A rather inconsistent experience, in difficulty, enjoyment and general polish, but one that is saved by the core arcade simplicity that is occasionally given a chance to truly shine.
  7. I really wanted it to work, and continued in the vain and unfounded hope that it'd all come good at some point. It doesn't.

    One of the best looking and playing XBox Games. A little bit of Wimg Comander, Crimson Skies, XWing, Tachyon, with a fine game spanning plot. One of the best looking and playing XBox Games.

The only problem is the brutal difficulty and the crappy voice acting. But these flaws can be handled or overlooked. Great game! Expand
