Summary: The game starts out rather fun. It was extremely promising, but after the introduction when you're supposed to go off on your own and choose your quests as RPGs often make you do, I was lost, and the controls (especially going into hyperspace) are hard to remember, and even if you can remember, the game is hard to control. The story is cheesy, cliche sci-fi. Evil totalitarian government, check. Main character's deceased father was famous, check. Smartass pilot, check.
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.
