Galaxy Force is a fast and furious blast-'em-up on the ST. The sprites are smooth and colourful, and gameplay very involving. However, whilst it contains the heart of the coin-op (including the great soundtrack), it lacks the guts provided by the hydraulics.
Galaxy force reminded me of that pathetic conversion, AfterBurner, except that it was set in the future. The game was fairly good to begin with, but after a short time it became boring and I found myself reaching for the off switch. The game was far too repetitive for my liking, but if a different level had been added it might have caught my attention. The game's graphics are reminiscent of the Titus game, Galactic Conqueror, except that Galaxy Force is smoother. All in all, I think that without the hydraulic chair, as in the arcade version, the game is nowhere near as good as it could have been, and because of that I can't really recommend it.
