SummaryA Starflight clone.
The GoodStar Control 2 does a lot of the things that Starflight did right. The alien interactions are especially well done and very funny.
The BadUnfortunately, Star Control 2 does not quite live up to the pedigree of Starflight. The immense procedurally generated realistically sized worlds that took hours to explore in starflight are replaced by a half screen display that takes a few seconds to transverse. Also gone is the RPG system where you can train the abilities of your crew members. The space combat has became more arcade like, and the story is not nearly as engrossing as Starflight's.
