Not at all bad but at times not at all good

  • Summary: I recommend you read E.C. Sterck's review here as that is closest to my feeling about Yager from those that came out nearer when it was released. I've just finished playing it for the first time having spent the last two weeks finishing the 22 missions (10 -12hrs) and then going back and redoing my favourite ones to get all mission stars. A VERY tough job in some cases.

  • Excerpt: "I bought this game after seeing adverts for it on TV. It looked really cool... something a bit different to what I'd played before on the XBox (as a reasonably new player!) I was disappointed! I tried the game a few times and couldn't get the hang of the controls... Don't know if it was me being stupid or if it was generally hard to control. I even found the training sessions hard and it took me a couple of times to complete them successfully. The ...

Yager Review!!

DrivenUnd..., Ciao
18 June 2004
  • Excerpt: "...detailing the opening sections of Yager could easily make for an incredibly negative review. This is not due to technical issues, but because much of the game is initially so difficult to like. The cutscenes only serve to highlight a cliched plot while the characters are particularly dislikeable, especially that of the lead. Most importantly though, the game just fails to engage. Yager follows the story of Magnus Tide: a loose cannon, a freelancer ...
  • Pros: Engaging air to air combat, Enjoyable B - movie quality story, A ranking system ensures replay value
  • Cons: Heavy use of scripting, Stealth missions frustrate, No multiplayer

  • Summary: Being new to the X-Box, I have been searching for a decent flight sim, and with Yager I am still looking for one. The main fault with the sim is the lack of true speed. One feels when one is flying in Jet mode, that the ship is crawling along like a moped. Graphics are good, likewise sounds, but with no sensation of flight the game fails before it starts.

Great game.

  • Summary: This is a great game. Graphically it is splendid. Edge magazine weren't exaggerating when they labelled it 'Beautiful'. Thankfully that's not all it is. It's also a great game. Exploration of the landscape is a pleasure in itself, but the dogfights over that landscape are fabulous. The inter-cut storyline scenes are well done and do not intrude on the game play and do not suffer from the usual cheese factor.

  • Excerpt: "Graphics The graphics in this game are amazing, most of the locales have so far been archipelagos, with beautiful water, dense foliage and a heck of a lot of hills. You can always tell what you're looking at, unless of course, it's in the distance. the fog in this game is a bit over the top, but it's a small price to pay for the solid frame rate and graphics. The Sagittarius (the ship you pilot) and all the other ships in the game are all quite ...
  • Pros: the macho attitude of your character can be unintentionally funny at times .
  • Cons: Earth Looks Funny

Yager is absolutely brilliant!!!

  • Summary: Well,what can I say? Yager is the best air fighting game I've ever played. The graphics are stunning, the sounds are amazing and the gameplay is fantastic! You are Magnus Tide, a freelancer who has recently acquired a new ship and is looking for work at Proteus. And what a ship. Its design is sleek and elegant, yet it can blow away endless waves of ships coming at you from all angles (if used correctly).

  • Summary: This game is spectacular. The graphics are gorgeous, the background is interesting, the ship you fly is pure unadulterated class. This is without doubt the finest flying shooter on the xbox. Thumbs up for Yager the coolest game I've played in ages.
