    Gotta read the manual

    This game will frustrate you unless you read the manual. Once you read the manual you will be able to take advantage of 2 crucial things: multi-target homing missiles; and identifying primary objective targets. Without ... Read Full Review

    Live out your childhood fantasies of flying a Viper, but beware- extremely steep learning curve makes this fans-only.

    Battlestar galactica is fun, albeit extremely difficult. The phrase "practise makes perfect" applies here like no other. The learning curve is quite steep, but once you master the Viper's (surprisingly) deep controls, yo... Read Full Review

    Lazy game development

    I was so looking forward to BG when the game was first announced and I was even more disappointed when the final product finally showed up. This has to have been one of the most poorly conceived shallow games I've ever ... Read Full Review

    Definately worth a look if you still own an xbox and want a decent sci-fi shooter for it.

    I bought this game mainly for two reasons. First because, although I'm not a huge fan of the series, I've always loved the space ships seen on the show and have always thought it would be really cool to fly them. I was r... Read Full Review

    Fleeing from the Cylon tyranny, the last Battlestar, Galactica leads a rag-tag fugitive fleet on a lonely quest.

    Ok ok, so this game isn't quite set in the same time as the 1978 classic on the T.V but the story is the prequel to it. In Battlestar Galactica the game you are thrust into the beginning of the Human Cylon war some 40 y... Read Full Review

    SHOCK HORROR...a good licence?!

    Picked this up at bargain bin prices...and was floored by the production values. The dev team have done their best to add some complexity to what would be a dull flying shooter. And yes it is tough, but once you listen t... Read Full Review

    FASTEN YOUR SEATBELT!!!!

    Being old enough to say i enjoyed the original series and the original airing on TV, I can say that after all these years, i always wantedto have a go in a Viper and whip some Cylon butt. I was really excited when i pur... Read Full Review

    Begin. Lose. Repeat. Lose. Repeat. Lose. Repeat...

    I can't really recommend this to anyone, unless of course you think you'd enjoy the gaming equivalent of bending over and forcibly taking a broom handle. This is what you'll be able to enjoy upon starting this game; you'... Read Full Review

    Hellz Yea.

    I've seen several Space sims in my life and I thank Battlestar Galactica to land another great title. First day I bought it, it had a good price. When I got it home, I absolutely enjoyed the gameplay. One place this ga... Read Full Review

    Difficult

    Had to play a long time before working past the opening fight. Game difficulty is important, but making a game TOO hard reduces the desire to play it very much. I am a big fan of BSG, old series and new, so a game of t... Read Full Review
