The best game ever (even before Daggerfall)

The Good

I liked everything. It was a stunning, open world where you never felt pushed in any way. I was sitting around christmas 86/87 (or 87/88?) in the university (where not much was to do since it was short after christmas) and played it for hours and kept playing right after i returned home after my "work" ... ;-)

Even though, in todays view, the graphics are primitive as they were in the 80's, this game tied me up completely and what fun was it to collect materials on various planets and then shiver while returning them to starport.

Its hard to describe and i wish i once after this game had gotten this feeling back, and besides that Daggerfall came a little close and X seemed to be, i never had this experience again.

Really, i hope those folks on starflight3.net (.com) will finish their starflight 3!

The Bad

I liked everything! There is nothing to dislike in this game.

The Bottom Line

Simple graphics but a very good storyline, a complete world where you can go as you want.

It is as open as Daggerfall.

The next one, Starflight 2, was almost as good.

But 1 had the real feeling!
