Summary

Beautiful Space combat sim!!!!

The Good

Almost everything. The graphics were crisp, and the sound could not get anymore authentic. With a multitude of ships to fly, this game is large and the replay value is enormous. You can fly up close and see every detail of the ship. And if you have 3D acceleration, your heart will skip a beat after seeing it. The gameplay is nearly identical to X-wing and Tie-fighter except that now you get to have the use of a turret.

The Bad

The loading times were slightly long and the game sometimes makes you wait for a ship to dock or a transport to reach it's destination.

The Bottom Line

This game is a masterpiece and should be owned by all.
