Summary: I loved DarkStar One on my PC. So much so that when I accidentally found a version for teh Xbox 360 I immediately bought it. BIG MISTAKE! The Xbox version of this game is done by amateurs who don't know anything a about flight/space sims, and that's why this version is crap that I will never play again. And it simply comes down the controls. You see...from the Wright brothers to the Space Shuttle one thing in flying remained the same.
Summary: I am an old PC gamer, and I still play a round of AGE II several times a week on average. The reason I hunted down Dark Star One, was that one day I wanted to play FREELANCER. I got out my disc, loaded it up, and promptly found the online servers had gone the way of the Dodo. I know I could host my own on my laptop, but no one was likely to see it anyways, so I knew I was pretty much limited to single player.
Summary: This game is really neat. Basically, it is a flight simulator. There are no ground missions. The graphics are pretty good. Space looks terrific, as do all of the ship and bases. The special affects are pretty cool. Sound is well done. There are various different music scores that play while you are cruising through space or fighting. The voice acting is also well done. Your ship, the Dark Star One, is state-of-the-art and is more advanced than most other star vessels.
Summary: Dark star one puts you in command of a fighter aircraft, where you can explore a galaxy, do missions, attack freighters, kill pirates or even mine asteroids. the idea of the space shooter goes back a long long time, the most known one was probably freespace, darkstar one tries to be as good as it but falls very short. many think consoles couldn't do it because of the lack of inputs but darkstar one plays very well but the problem is it gets boring fast.
Summary: Pros: Fun space fighter game, very rare these days to find anything like it, The PC version was fun but, so I bought this version because....... (see other thoughts) Love the ship customization options Cons: You cannot customize the controls for the ship, you must use the left analog stick to control the x/y axis of the ship, this is incredibly frustrating and unnatural to me.
