  • Conclusion: So it's easy to end up yearning for more. None of the single pieces of Darkstar are particularly shoddy (voicework aside), but mixed together they form an experience that's largely devoid of anything memorable, but also one that remains hypnotically sedate until eventual boredom sets in.

  • Excerpt: By Brad Russell The flight simulation genre hasn't had a ton of standouts, and most of the memorable ones, even if you haven't played such games, have leaned heavily to the arcade style of one mission at a time. There have been many spacecraft simulators in the recent past, in which you pilot a ship all over the universe.

Review: Dark Star One: Broken Alliance (Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN
30 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Dark Star One: Broken Alliance Developer: Gaming Minds Publisher: Kalypso Media Genre: Space Sim Released: 07/13/10 Space Sims are a rare breed these days. The glory days of X-Wing , Tie Fighter and Freespace have given way to the bleak prospect of looking at Star Trek: Shattered Universe and thinking it will suffice to quench the constant craving.

  • Conclusion: Overall, DarkStar One: Broken Alliance feels rushed out the door and lacks polish as well as any multiplayer modes to help redeem its boring and repetitive campaign. This title is a horrible example of a space simulator… I wish they could have taken a note from Wing Commander.

  • Conclusion: There is no station management or player controlled solar systems. Exploitation is not worth discussing because of how little it brings to the game. Extermination has less to offer than exploitation. The graphics are crisp and clean but to me they feel unnatural.

Universal Appeal?

  • Conclusion: DarkStar One: Broken Alliance is not going to be a triple-A title. Visuals, while often stunning, tend to feature reused elements too often. Also, the voice acting has not been given an upgrade, so you'll be in for some B-movie-style line delivery. Consequently, we've got a feeling this title will probably only have niche appeal when it hits retail, but those that do take the plunge will likely be rewarded with a compelling experience at a discounted price.
