Summary: I really wanted to like this game more but the controls for both the controller and keyboard/mouse are very hard to use. I remapped them half a dozen times to try and fix it but it just would not play nice. Graphics are ok. Plot is simple. RPG elements are next to non existent with one simple upgrade system of only three items. They might have more options later but I played a few levels and that seemed to be it.
Summary: It is nice to see a modern space sim. It has been a long time, and there is a nostalgia factor here for great games like freelancer or dark star one. The combat is decent enough. The biggest downside is that the game only takes you through a series of scripted missions, with no freedom or open world to explore. I'd say the game may be worth the low price a few minutes of fun, but will not replace some of the older, more complex freeform space sims of the past.
Summary: I actually enjoyed this quite a bit. The controls are great as well and the fights are fun. The story is good as well and the religious fanatics you are fighting are quite funny at times. It also looks quite impressive for an indie title. The only real downside is that it is very short, it took me less than 3 hours on the first play through on normal and that includes mission I had to re-do because I died.
Summary: I am a huge fan of Decent Free-space and I am also now a huge fan of Sol Exodus. Very good content, although it was short the missions had great variety. I got this in a bundle and it was entirely worth the 5 dollars i paid. More like a 20 dollar value i would say. Very fun game-play, awesome space story, totally awesome space combat. I gave this 10/10 because the average score is too low on this great story driven action space sim.
Summary: Has great support from the indie developers. They brought in joystick support which I applaud and they brought in a **** They plan to bring in more as they keep on patching. For the developers first game, I am impressed.
Summary: Could not play longer than 15 minutes. Arcade shooter yes, going to hold my attention, no. I think I am done supporting indie developers. No reason to pay a dime for this. Many free online arcade games rival this. The graphics were ok though.
Summary: Absolutely loving it. While it doesn't necessarily evoke the feeling of any particular predecessor (such as my beloved Freespace 12), it has its own feel in the best possible way. The action is fast and frenetic, the ship is easy to control and most importantly the game is FUN. I've played with both the mouse and keyboard and with a joystick (my preference). I found both control schemes easy to use, and fun to play.
Summary: So far I think the game is pretty good, the level design is a wee bit repetitive but thankfully I've been having a lot of fun with the ship to ship combat, controls great even with a mouse. I think the story is fun and very BSG-esq though I wish it were fleshed out a little more and explained for instance why my friendly capital ship is always outmatched.
Summary: Not having much fun with this as of yet. For a game that was made by an indie developer wanting to stress the "fun", I have to say that it's not what I was looking or hoping for. Playing the game doesn't feel like a spiritual successor to any of the previous titles in the genre that I loved... XWing, Tie Fighter, Wing Commander, Freelancer, Star Lancer, et al.
