Very Good

Tricky at First, but addictive...

When you first start off on this one, it seems kind of boring until you get the hang of the controls and the concept... I found myself playing this game until I beat it, you will laugh at some of the voice overs which seem that the lines were written by kids or people who never made a real comeback while fighting.. As in 'Prepare to die' 'I come from the Netherworld' 'Feel the technology of an Ancient people'... I would expect better taunts while tailing a pirate and responding to his threats etc... The story is linear, and once in a while you get these side missions when you enter a system, you can also customize your weapons, ship, etc to suit your playing style. All in all is a great game once you take the time to learn the mechanics. The 'Time lapse' is very helpful when you want to hurry to a certain location in a system you entered. If you are a goody goody then pirates will be coming after you, if you choose the life of a pirate then you'll be tracked down by mercenaries, you can also choose to be a merchant as a 'Side job' to get the money to buy your customizations etc. Well that's it for now, I think you'd enjoy this one if you give it a try, of course that's if you are into Space simulation/action games with an RPG feel.

not bad for what it is, but lacking in first person ( out of the ship ). exploring some of the moons and or ship wreaks would have added to the game a lot. sort of like what you do in mass affect. then this game would get a 10.5 from me.. so i give it a 6.5
