Summary

A truly decent game.

The Good

I'm not a fan of simulators and freespace games and usually find them boring, pointless and not much fun, but this game is clearly an exception. Though I didn't play it that much (it crashes on both my machines) liked what I saw - a groundbreaking 3D engine with great eye-candy and smooth framerate on a 486, excellent controls and good audio. The missions are well made though not very innovative. Gameplay itself is excellent with smooth transitions and good action.

The Bad

Well, a simulator is a simulator. This is a good one, but nothing new anyway.

The Bottom Line

A good freespace game, reminiscent of Descent.
