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.Mar 30th, 2009 · Windows · read review

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.Sep 11th, 2005 · Windows · read review

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.Jul 30th, 2003 · Windows · read review
Star Control 2 does a lot of the things that Starflight did right. The alien interactions are especially well done and very funny.
Unfortunately, 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.
The Bottom Line
Star Control 2 is a good game, don't get me wrong, put it pales in comparison to the game it cloned, Starflight. In Starflight you really felt like you were a starship captain exploring the final frontier. Star Control 2 lost that feeling. In short, if you played Starflight and want to try something similar, Star Control 2 is for you. However, if you haven't played either title, Starflight is the one to chose.
