Gaming Target
The second piece of the puzzle is that the missions are significantly long and that there is no type of in-mission checkpoint or save system. When you put these two items together you get a game that punishes failure at the end of a mission by making you go back and play through the occasionally tedious beginning of the mission again. Overcoming these points is a major test of one's patience.

Sorry, but the remake of the classic original just doesn't do it for me. Just like the Star Wars prequels didn't do it for fans either. But thankfully, this game is not bad at all. It could be because I enjoyed the Wing Commander and Starlancer games in my youth. This does a good job of bringing the TV show to life. And it comes with a $10 coupon for the original collectors set DVD. I was all about that.

Battlestar Galactica is one of those legendary sci-fi series like Lost in Space, Star Trek, etc that has now come up in the big Hollywood recycle bin. By combining a solid space flight/combat game with a solid mission structure, Battlestar gives players a fun experience. It is best, however, to go into it knowing that you will have to really be on your game in order to make it out alive.

Overall, Battlestar Galactica is a game that stands out from the crowd on consoles, not only because space combat games are rare, but also because of the games overall quality. This game requires some tactics, and quite some skill to complete. Recommended for space combat fans.

Fans of the series might find there isn’t enough authentic Battlestar Galactica content to warrant the license, and it’s true, you could strip away the title and the game would play out just the same. License or not, there is still enough quality gameplay here to make this a definite rental and a possible purchase if you are really hard up for a difficult space shooter.

BSG is a throwback, basic space-shooter right inline with a game like Starlancer and nails what it set out do. The intent of this licensed product just wasn't very inspired. You get to fly Colonial vipers after all these years, they come with a few surprises and that's about it. The developers did a good job of adding some appealing tricks to a fairly thin sci-fi license, but this is a game that probably won't be worth much more than just a quick rental.

Battlestar Galactica ist vor allem eines: zu schwer! Wer Herausforderungen mag, wird diese Aussage spätestens nach den ersten Missionen revidieren und sich wünschen, die Entwickler hätten doch noch einen leichten Schwierigkeitsgrad eingebaut. Anfänger und Genre-Fremde beißen dagegen schon in der ersten Mission ins Pad. Schade, denn ansonsten ist das Spiel wirklich gelungen: Die Missionen sind abwechselungsreich, die Steuerung geht gut von der Hand und die Zwischensequenzen sind hübscher als die Spezialeffekte der neuen Serie! Ein Spiel für geduldige Weltraumveteranen!

Sadly, the attempt was not entirely successful. The combination of the irritatingly tough mission structuring along with the relative simplicity of the combat ultimately makes Battlestar Galactica a bit too basic of an experience for any seasoned space combat fan, and it's too difficult of an experience for casual fans that are just looking for a simple trip down memory lane. However, if you're able to look past Battlestar Galactica's problems, there are most definitely things to like about the game, and it certainly makes for a good weekend rental.

But a good quality product does not need external references to succeed. For the most part, Battlestar Galactica is testament to that. The audio effects are disappointing but everything else is up to par. Unfortunately, it fails to become really meaningful and memorable, thus making it a good space action title but not one that will be talked about years later.

En définitive, Battlestar Galactica est loin de se montrer particulièrement convaincant. De bonnes idées dans le gameplay mais qui ne se concrétisent pas vraiment et une réalisation moyenne le maintiennent à un niveau de fun plutôt moyen. En plus, même l'ambiance de la. série n'est pas franchement au rendez-vous, ce qui rend l'achat tout à fait dispensable, même pour les fans.
