  • Excerpt: Whether you’ve heard of him or not, Derek Smart has consistently been a very hot subject to gamers at large, causing more than his fair share of controversy attempting to defend his games on forums or newsgroups, often leading to flame wars. But is Universal Combat condemnable just because its designer is regarded by some to be a man of questionable character? No - sadly it has plenty of other reasons to justify its poor reviews.

  • Summary: Controversy is an undocumented feature in games designed by outspoken developer Derek Smart, whose previous work includes the Battlecruiser series of space simulations. So perhaps it's no surprise that his latest effort, an expanded and updated take on the Battlecruiser universe called Universal Combat (which began life as Battlecruiser Generations), was the subject of litigation due to publisher DreamCatcher Interactive's last-minute decision to ship the game as a...

  • Conclusion: In der Theorie ist Universal Combat das ideale Spiel für alle Weltraum-Freaks, die in ein komplexes Universum abtauchen oder einfach nur eine große Schlacht erleben wollen. Doch die umständliche Steuerung, die hässliche Grafik und der nervige Sound degradieren das Spiel auf Anhieb. Das selbst gesetzte Ziel, die Battlecruiser-Serie einsteigerfreundlich zu machen, ist klar missglückt – auch wenn sich Entwickler Derek Smart durchaus auf dem richtigen Weg befindet.
