Star Fighter can be marked as yet another fine example of how a hardware company should make its in house software team work well for its system. The 3DO Company has done well to support its people at Studio 3DO and as a result they have produced a lineup of games for the 3DO that is considered to be the best of the lot. This lineup has included Bladeforce, Killing Time, the fantastic Battlesport and Captain Quazar. Amongst these is a truly enjoyable cross between a full borne shooter and a flight sim. It moves a little slower than you would expect but the flight mechanics and the depth of battle make this a fine tour through the skies of the future.

There is just so much to see and do that the game will last for ages, although it’s very tempting to stray from the set mission and explore everything, shoot everything and try out the sleek controls of the StarFighter. I urge you to get a look at this, assuming games of this genre are your cup of tea, and be proud that the PlayStation can produce some of the most impressive and entertaining games around. This is a near perfect example of how to do a lasting, fun, thoughtful fly-andshoot-’ em-up. Well done Telstar!

A great game where you can blow lots of things up. The graphics are great and the music is great (most of the time). The only thing that Star Fighter suffers from is a hellish learning curve on control.

Wer einen Pentium hat und Spiele wie Terminal Velocity schätzt, findet hier ein kleines Meisterwerk. Die leicht erlernbare Steuerung und die ununterbrochene Action ergänzen sich zu einem idealen Spiel für die Mittagspause. Auch wenn das Spielprinzip bei ununterbrochenem Spielen noch der x-ten Mission seinen Reiz verliert, so zählt Starfighter doch zur Spitzengruppe der T.V.-Verschnitte. Wer diese Art von Spielen mag, liegt hier richtig.

If you want a lot of game for you buck, Star Fighter is it. Offering you 60 missions, good graphics, cool music and tons of action, this title has the makings of a great game. The free movement (even allowing you to fly into space) is great, not to mention being able to blow up anything in your path. The only drawback is that your aircraft seems to move slowly at times, making the feeling of speed nearly nonexistent. Overall, Star Fighter is a great title for the 3DO.

När man väl lärt sig att kontrollera sitt skepp på ett bra sätt är Starfighter 3000 ett väldigt trevligt actionspel som faktiskt kan vara riktigt spännande emellanåt. Väl värt att undersöka extra noga om man är actionälskare.

Test een nieuw type ruimte- en planeetjager door in de vorm van missies allerlei doelen te raken of uit te schakelen. De sceneries zijn erg mooi en de handling van het schip prima.

In some cases this game soars with the best, in others it grovels with the worst. What then do I give it for a score? How about a 70 out of 100 for a product that needs some major improvement? If you are a hard-core enthusiast of games of this genre, pick up Starfighter. After you get it set up, I know you will enjoy scorching some innocent mountains into dust just for fun.

Overall, a standout title for such a weary genre. Let's just hope it doesn't start multiplying into unwanted sequels, like other flight sims we know.

Ill-defined graphics also limit the excitement. Colorful backgrounds lack detail, objects suddenly appear as you approach, and there's not enough dramatic intro footage to get you airborne. The sounds vary from effective voices to shrieking music that at times is unbearable. With 60 missions, Star Fighter is worth a long look.

Star Fighter is an impressive game. In an era when games like Star Fox and Panzer Dragoon are the norm, Star Fighter distinguishes itself by its number of features and free flight controls. The gameplay is addicting, the action intense. Unless you need fancy graphics in your game, Star Fighter ought to satisfy closet simulation junkies and shooting fans alike.

DOSPower Play
Nach siegreichem Kampf müßt Ihr “nun noch“ fehlerfrei am Mutterschiff andocken. Diese an sich belanglose Routine-Aufgabe gestaltet sich allerdings oft schwieriger als die eigentliche Schlacht, da die Steuerung hypernervös reagiert: eine falsche Muskelzuckung, und Ihr dengelt ans Mutterschiff und fangt damit den ganzen Level nochmal von vorne an. “Starfighter 3000“ macht dank der detaillierten Grafikengine und den clever designten Missionen durchaus Spaß, aber an die überempfindliche Steuerung müssen sich auch erfahrene Ballerhelden erst gewöhnen.

Die bunte Grafik wirkt zwar ordentlich, doch die Sichtweite ist zu gering. Dazu kommt die schlechte Steuerung des Fliegers. Weder Lebenszahl noch Waffen regenieren sich zwischen den Missionen, was zu ständigem Speichern zwingt. Statt eines eingeblendeten Radars gibt es eine unpräzise Isometriekarte. Ein sich in acht Richtungen drehender Pfeil nebst Textanzeige zeigt an, wo das nächste Ziel ist - ein Wing Commander 4 bekommt hysterische Lachanfälle. Da helfen auch die teils netten Missionen nichts mehr. Für leidensbereite Action-Akrobaten eine Überlegung wert, der Rest betätigt den Schleudersitz.

This game isn't just a bad version, it's just a terrible game for the platform. Unless you're a completist looking to finish off your Saturn collection, or a hard core glutton for punishment, I strongly suggest you give this game a really wide berth and skip it all-together.
