Summary

A mediocre sequel to a true legend.

The Good

Most of the voice acting fits the motif if you ask me, and HyperMelee is fun even if many of the SC2 ships are missing..

The Bad

Many aspects.. for example the MIDI musics aren't very good, the GUI looks pretty drab and the story _quite_ doesn't match SC2 in excellence.. not to mention that this game is boring. Seriously.

The Bottom Line

A sequel to SC2, but not made by the same people, and it shows.. very well. SC3 is an ok game, just that, ok, but if you compare it to SC2 it is like a comparation between the sun and a worn candle.

Anyone would be better off playing Star Control 2.
