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.

First impressions.

  • Summary: Although only having played for roughly 4 hours or so.. I think it might be useful to fill in some information on this much-hyped game, the details of which have been strangely hard to find. Yager is basically a 3D flying-shooting game very much in the mould of the old Wing Commander games on the PC. You play a typical sardonic protagonist through a series of 20 or so diverse missions which are interdispersed with cutscenes in order to link them together to form a plot.

Yager.....stunning!!

  • Summary: As soon as I played the demo of this game I knew I had to buy it, I had never enjoyed a space flying game like this since the days of Wing Commander in its glory. Yager was delayed for a month which I can only presume happened because most of the reviews of this game in magazines were positive but identified many flaws which THQ wanted to get rid of. Quite simply though, the game currently sitting in my xbox is amazing.

Yager-The best fighter sim, since X-Wing Alliance

  • Summary: This game is beatiful and stunning which shows this console at its best. I particularly like the way you can turn your ship to Harrier like hover mode and back to jet fighter. The game plot is a little cheesy, but who cares with graphics like these. If your fed up of rally car games and first person shooters and still want a quick blast/dogfight then I reccomend you add this to your XBOX games collection.

Top Flugaction aus Deutschland

  • Summary: Spiele wie Wing Commander, X-Wing und Starlancer erhielten in den 90er Jahren nicht nur hohe Wertungen der Presse, sondern waren auch kommerziell erfolgreich. Nachdem die Wing Commander-Serie jedoch so gut wie eingestellt wurde, wurde es auch ruhig um das Science-Fiction-Genre. Nach jahrelanger Arbeit ist Yager 9. Mai endlich erschienen.
  • Pros: sehr gute Grafik
  • Cons: teilweise zu schwer
