Summary: this game is good fun for about the first 5 stages then the learning curve gets steeper than a vertical line. the difficulty just gets turned up about 25 notches and in turn makes you want to lose the will to live as you try for the 15th time to destroy a cylon base.
Summary: OK, for fans of the TV series (and there are many) this may be a must have purchase. Be warned, however, that it can be a very fustraing game to play. The game is set before the original series and you play a young Adama (the reviewer who said you get to fly alongside Apollo & Starbuck obviously hasn't played the game.) It is very similar in gameplay terms to the X-Wing/Tie-Fighter games on the PC and can be a lot of fun.
