In Rebelstar, the game takes place at a control base on the moon. In the one-player game you take control of a group of desperate raiders as they attack Moonbase Delta.
Astonishing value in a budget title and a real treat for strategy addicts fed up with recreating the Battle of Britain.
I would have expected a game of such quality to appear at a much higher price, and take my hat off to Firebird for introducing his much improved version of an old favourite back onto the market at a reasonable price. I can find no fault with it.
Rebel Star is really a wargame - a sort of inter-galactic Battleships, only here for the most part you can see what your opponents are up to. It won't win points for pace and sophistication but it's thorough-going enough to keep you off the streets for a while.
Although the game fails to generate much excitement or involvement it might appeal to those who like their destruction and mayhem at a leisurely pace and a budget price and don't want to get bogged down with complex game play.
