Summary

A must-see game

The Good

This game is very much like a space-combat RPG. You have no limits as to where you can go, no limits to what you can do, and you can intereact with virtually every little detail. The ports are immersive, and the gameplay is fun. Smuggling, pirating, hunting, blatant anti-social tendencies, you name it, you can do it.

The Bad

While fun, space combat was so-so. This was obviously not one of the best space combat engines provided by Origin. To top it off, the ships one can fly, although great in their own right, are far too limited (number: 4 out of a good 15 ships in the game).

The Bottom Line

A definite must see and must get.
