I should hate this game, for a start its filled with japanese style animation which for me is a big no no, then its a space combat game also a big no no...yet i like it...its a great game. Simple but effective, its similiar to alot of mech games as much of it is about upgrading your ship, certain weapons will make you heavier but will no more damage also certain missions have different types of oppenent so you have to adapt your fight accordingly but often you dont know whats on the way, for example if i set my ship out to be effective against other fighters i could end up having to take down massive ships that anti-fighter weapons will not be effective against.
The storyline is actually quite good but nothing that has not been seen a few times in films and games.
Graphics are pretty good but once again nothing that will amaze you.
so why 3 stars, this is a Game you play once all the way through or part way through and never touch again, it does what it says on the tin nothing more. If you like the star wars space fighter games you will like this or even if you like the space battles in battlefront 2 then you will like this.
I would also like to state that although worth the used price on amazon, you can get it cheaper elsewhere so shop around.
