Summary

I still can't believe its not really that good of a game!

The Good

I spent more time playing this game than in Calculus class, and my grade proves it. This was the best game of its kind during its time. Turn your opponent's empire into star dust memory using different ships with different attack/defense abilities. Combat resolution is ship v. ship with your and/or your friend controlling every nuance of real time action.

The Bad

Why can't they make Calculus 1/1,000th as fun?

The Bottom Line

I've heard Star Control 2 is better, and I believe it. Looking back, SC1 was not really that great of a game. Btw, the computer is really dumb. So the only way you will get addicted to this game is to get at least one of your friends addicted to it first.
