3.0 out of 5 stars
Not so much a simulator, 11 Jan 2008
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars
Well it arrived, and I was disappointed to see that it isn't a simulator, its more an arcade type game. That said it is fun to play, and if your new to ship simulators, controlling the ships at first can be tricky. I updated my copy with both patches that you download, and now have multiplayer capability and also an editor to make missions.
I tried the online game, and it makes a difference to game play, with other "real" players, the downside is selecting a start point to join a session. I had five different players "land" on me within the first thirty minutes! Time flew past whilst I was on line, so it must have been good!
Its a shame that the game is let down by not having proper cockpits for the controls. Is it worth a buy? Well everyones taste is different, I brought it for a bit of fun, having never tried a ship simulator, and I can see it becoming addictive :)
