  • Summary: Below is a critical review from a person who likes really hardcore sims - where run out of ammo, fuel, oxygen and battery power. The pros: decent eye candy graphics. Unlike many space sims - the cutscenes include decently rendered characters and dialogues.

  • Summary: I love this game it really does teach you to watch your surrounding and it lets you become a tradesman as far as making some real cash in the market world. In the game that is. :)

  • Summary: 2012 and the game plays quite nicely. I have Windows 7, and so far no bugs like the many forums have reported. The missions are repetitive, the storyline, well hardly engrossing, but get it for cheap, play it for 30 minutes at a time, and it is quite nice. It's Xwing/Elite style fighting.

  • Summary: Not a fantastic game by any means. Outclassed by others in the genre. Gameplay wise it is pretty repetitive. Although there are lots of things to do such as smuggling they lack depth and incentive to actually do them because 'shooting bad guys' usually happens regardless.

  • Summary: Following the likes of Wing Commander and the X-wing series, DarkStar One is certainly not an original concept, but it is still an incredible space opera--a well delivered story, great voice acting, an open galaxy, intuitive user interface, multiple side missions and other fun stuff will keep you...

Good but better on 360

  • Summary: If you like Freelancer its a good game. I will mention negatives first, then tell you how it makes up for it. The plot is thinner during each part, but it is much longer. Trade, hyper jump, and fast movement are slightly inferior to Freelancer.

I Liked It

  • Summary: I bought this a long time ago and really enjoyed it. I think I played it in WinXP, with an Athlon 3800+ and a Geforce 8600GTS. It ran great.
  • Pros: Good story, gameplay, graphics, and sound. I like games like this. This is very much like Privateer or the newer Freelancer.
  • Cons: I'm not sure, but I think paid more than this for it back when I bought it.

Good game, good price

Jeff M., Newegg

  • Pros: Good game, similar to Freelancer in play style. You get to upgrade your ship (in three categories, engines, wings and hull) as you collect ancient civilization artifacts. Meet strange new civilizations, become a pirate, bounty hunter, trader, etc. Fun game for the price.
  • Cons: A little buggy, but fun nonetheless.
