All in all, The Ur-Quan Masters is a very nice game, that easily places itself in the top 100 of games ever made, and is definitively in the top 10 of best freeware games ever made. If you've played the original Star Control 2, get this one NOW. If you haven't played the original, well... shame on you! Go play this port now! It's a game you'll remember for a long while, trust me.

The Ur-Quan Masters is a game of high caliber. The engaging storyline, in-depth universe, excellent combat and hours of great dialogue will see you coming back to this game again and again. I would also like to thank the boys from the UQM project and the game's original creators; may your roots always be well watered.

Ну а в остальном - Star Control 2 как Star Control 2. Для страдающих ностальгией и желающих ознакомиться со старинной классикой вполне сгодится, но привыкшего к современной графике и эффектам скорее отпугнет. Жаль, что разработчиков не хватило на полноценное осовременивание - сюжет того стоит.
