If it wasn't retro BSG, I wouldn't have bought it.

Summary: If you have read the other reviews you already know the difficulty is too high early on and inconsistant through out the game. The sub par flight controls are not as precise or intuitive as the Star Wars: Starfighter or Ace Combat games.
Summary: Battlestar galactica is fun, albeit extremely difficult. The phrase "practise makes perfect" applies here like no other. The learning curve is quite steep, but once you master the Viper's (surprisingly) deep controls, you should do well.
Summary: If you played "Wing Commander" in the 90's you'll have a pretty good idea of the quality of this game. Play control is very generic. Sound is okay. Story is thin. I enjoyed it because I like the BSG series and enjoy blowing away a few "Toasters.
Great Graphics, Story line and game play - BUT NOT EASY

Summary: This game has been lots of fun for me. I have loved the Viper space fighter since the '70s (yes, I am probably really old compared to some of you gamers out there) and its been great to get to pilot one.

Summary: This game makes me miss X-Wing Fighter from the old days. Why? Because they knew how to make a good space fighter game. BSG isn't all that bad. Some missions are fun but others are stress-inducing and no fun at all.
Summary: For those of you like me, who were raised on PONG and Atari 2600, this is probably not the best game to start your PS2 experience. Egads. I got so frustrated with it, I tore it out of the unit and threw it across the room. When I get around to prying it out of the drywall, I might try it again.
Summary: I think we all now agree the first mission is rediculously difficult... so Im not going to repeat what others said. I will however offer another hint: If you target the "cylon leaders" and kill the leaders only.... the rest of the cylons will bugger off. So....
Summary: I was stuck for a long time on the same part in the 1st mission as another rewiewer, where you have to (try and) save your wingmen from dying (right after you blow up the small satellites). I finally succeeded at getting through that stage by noticing that if you pump up "speed" vs.
Summary: The Graphics of this game are awsome, sound also, but playability is just rediculous, even getting the hang of the game you are frustrated, they could have done it more realistic, it's a sad state when the troop carriers have more armor than a Basestar.
