2.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to like it but..., 27 Sept. 2008
I really wanted to liem this game, the story looks good and the game is atmospheric but sadly its just another console port where the developers couldn't be bothered to make the controls work on the PC. The controls and even the tutorial hints only work with a concole controller (how many PCs have a green button?). In addition the game keeps forcing you to change between first and thrid person views as some actions can only be carried out in one view and some in the other. Third person movement is painful and clumsy and hand-to-hand combat is terrible. First person works OK when you can use it and the healing and inventory interfaces are good.

In short - don't buy this game; get FEAR or Bioshock instead.

2.0 out of 5 stars Decent story but way too short, 16 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Approaching Omega (Paperback)
Approaching Omega is a decent story about a group of colonists fleeing a dying Earth on humanities first (and last) interstellar voyage. The ship is mysteriously damaged and the plot evolves from there.
While the plot is OK and the writing is pretty good this book is far too short to be a stand-alone novel. At 120 pages I do not recommend buying this book but it is worth a read if you ever see it as part of a compilation of short stories.
