Excerpt: I jumped at the chance to get a new Battlestar Galactica game, there really aren't enough around, and the prospect to play against other people online in my choice of ship was too awesome to resist! It's gonna be great! I was wrong. STORYLINE We play through the first two seasons of Battlestar Galactica, right from the ceremonial drone-shooting before the Cylon attack (at least they used some form of imagination to get players used to the controls).
Pros: If you absolutely need to get your BSG fix .
Cons: If you like BSG you probably won't like this . If you don't you probably won't like this . . .
Summary: After getting the original series of the show on DVD i saw the game and had to buy it! it is a gr8 sim and a fine tribute to the series both old and new. Some people may think the game is impossible to complete but the truth is if you think about the levels and what you are being asked to do then you will fly through it, i completed the game in under 2days of playing in my free time, i am now going through on the advanced difficulty setting.
Summary: This game is one of the best space sims I have played. I hear so often that a game is too hard. Reality check; Some games require you to be good! Read the manual cover to cover and the game opens up from the easy first stages into a frenetic series of brilliantly plotted battles which test players, but are by no means impossible. First class stuff.
Summary: Wannabe Starbucks - beware! Although the ship models are nice, the sound effects are authentic (just like the original series) and the Cylon Cockpit chatter adds to the ambience - the lack of any save facility - either mid mission, or even after mini-missions, means that you will want to join with the Cylons and annihilate whoever designed this game! I would go and buy and a Star Wars space flight sim instead. This one now stays permanently on my shelf.
