I've been enjoying everything about the game immensely, from the new ships to the ingeniously paced campaign. It's easy enough to pick up and play, but offers depth to satisfy the serious sim nut in me. None of the space blasters I've played has made me feel as immersed as this. It's the next best thing to being there. In a nutshell, Vengeance is simply a much better game than its predecessor in every conceivable way; no serious sci-fi action buff will want to be without a copy. Two very sore thumbs up!
אין הרבה דברים שליליים שניתן לומר על המשחק, מלבד אולי העובדה שהמשחק נמצא הפעם בקצה הקיצוני של הקשת מבחינת רמת הקושי. אבל כשלוקחים בחשבון את העלילה, השחיקות, הגרפיקה, קטעי הוידאו והמשחימות החכמות, המשחק הוא פשוט חווית משחק מהממת. ללא ספק מומלץ בחום.

Last year I hardly read a bad review for Colony Wars but sales figures hardly made the distributors mega-rich. The same fate will probably befall Vengeance, which is sad because visually this is a stunner. It also has an unprecedented depth of gameplay for a title in this genre and you'll play it for a very long time.

Don't get me wrong, the game is still great, and a must-buy for fans of this genre. But if you don't own the first Colony Wars, buy it before you get Vengeance. Not only will the plot make more sense, but you'll be able to experience the universe to it's fullest. If you already own Colony Wars, you'll still love Vengeance. Now go out there and kick the League in the pants. Do it for Kron .

Beim Zocken von Colony Wars: Vengeance lasst den virtuellen Piloten das Gefühl nicht los, in einem Science-Fiction-Film zu sein. Die computeranimierten Sequenzen in Kinoqualität und eine immens aufwendige Audiokulisse mit Bordfunk und orchestraler Musik verschaffen dem Epos eine unheimliche Spieltiefe. Darüber hinaus sorgt eine verzweigte, nicht-lineare Spielstruktur für überraschende Wendungen und alternative Lösungswege. Auch technologisch setzt Colony Wars: Vengeance neue Maßstäbe. Gigantische, detailanimierte Sternenzerstörer, Asteroidenfelder und hochauflösender Weltraumnebel lassen das Sequel den Thron des Genres erklimmen. Spielerisch hat sich dagegen nicht viel getan. (...) Lediglich die neuartigen Aufträge auf fremden Planeten sorgen für Abwechslung. Jedoch überzeugen diese Missionen nur bedingt, da das Geschehen auf den Oberflächen mit einer geringeren Frame-Rate dargestellt wird.

Colony Wars 2 is een prachtig vervolg. Psygnosis heeft goed geluisterd naar de kritiek van de gamers en dat heeft geresulteerd in een compleet en verslavend spel.
Despite its flaws, the game's head-turning graphics, diversity, and uncommonly developed story propel Colony Wars: Vengeance light years ahead of the average space shooter. However, a bit more fine-tuning could have made it truly stellar.
Un excellent jeu de conquête spatiale. Sûrement le meilleur du genre sur Playstation. Un excellent gameplay pour une très bonne réalisation.
