  • Summary: Light of Altair is unpleasant to look at, unpleasant to listen to and unpleasant to play in general. I gave up after the second mission when I realised that all of the game was going to be one unusually long tutorial.

  • Summary: This is definitely one of those games where the term synergy applies. Although there's no one thing about it that is truly great, the colony building, ship combat, pleasant visuals, and the nice techno-electronica soundtrack combine to make for a fun and engaging gaming experience.

  • Summary: Unlike many modern releases which leave me dissapointedly wanting more due to lackluster gameplay, Light of Altair leaves me wanting more because the core gameplay is just that enjoyable.

  • Summary: I feel this is one of the best games ever made. Its challenging with out being frustrating, simple to understand. A few things really push it over the top for me though.

  • Summary: This game has a promising design, but lacks adequate documentation. The in game 'Help" menu leaves much about how to win in the hands of the gamer to discover through frustrating trail and error.
