Manufacturer's Description

Starlancer combines the action of first-person space combat with the drama and intrigue of a classic air combat movie. Countries from around the world including the United States, China, Russia and Great Britain have formed strategic alliances and now battle for control of Earth, Mars and other planets across the solar system. As part of a newly formed, ragtag aviation unit, the 45th Volunteers Squadron, players must prove themselves and earn the respect of their peers.

5.0 out of 5 stars StarLancer - One of a Kind 8 Mar 2004
Nothing quite comes close to the awe and suspense created by this masterpiece from the creators of Wing Commander! The missions are challenging, dynamic, and most of all, FUN! This game is fun to play, especially with a Dual Shock style gamepad or a joystick, but if you don't possess these items, don't let that put you off, as you can always use the fail-safe, the keyboard!
You start out as a volunteer for the Western Alliance, who are set upon in a cowardly and destructive move by the Eastern Coalition, which renders the French and Italian fleets helpless. And worse still, the commander of a Coalition vessel orders the survivors of the attack to be executed.
Beginning as a member of a Volunteer, you progress steadily through the game, until you reach your own elite status. The dynamics of the game are what make this unique, because if you don't destroy a Coalition 'nanny' ship coming to retrieve your captain's lifepod, you don't fail the mission, you just have to face the ship later on!
If you like this masterpiece, then check out Freelancer, the 'sequel' of this game, with improved visuals, and easier flight controls!

4.0 out of 5 stars BEGGING FOR MODS 15 Oct 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
WHY do all of the new games that look no better than starlancer require such hefty pc specs when GEMS like this one require nothing at all? This game still looks great and plays wonderfully.

Freespace 2 is regarded as the daddy of space combat but, IT HAS NO COCKPIT VIEW. Starlancer HAS a cockpit view and to me it gives this game the edge. Graphics,sound,story and controls are all great but.....NO MODS.

Why a game as polished as this has no mods is a crime.Freelacer,the sequal to this has a great starwars mod 'Freeworlds' that really should have been given to Starlancer.Freelancer never felt as good with only a mouse control and i fear its now too late to hope for starlancer mods.

Anyhow,if you have not played this game then you really should.
IT'S THE DADDY.

5.0 out of 5 stars chase em hit em kill em 6 Jan 2006
the game is brill, once you master the controls and buttons(all forty of them) you won't want to stop, the gameplay and plot twists draw you into the game, trying to shoot a lead enemy character while he taunts you over the coms system, watch out for the last level, still not managed to beat it(so much for fair war) the enemy have a new weapon that you don't find out about in the game, just that you lost, give us starlancer two
