    It may be simplistic, but DarkStar One is still a decent space shooter.

    INTRO: After the Wing Commander and X-Wing VS TIE Fighter series popularized the genre of games in which players control agile space-faring strike-craft, there had been plenty of attempts by other game-makers to enter th... Read Full Review

    Very fun space combat and intergalactic trading/smuggling/pirating/bounty hunting game! I wish there was a part 2!

    This story driven game has it all for a space combat oriented game. Upgrade-able ship, "skill-tree," and various ship parts (engines, shield,s guns, rockets and etc.). The controls are extra smooth and responsive. The... Read Full Review

    Almost a classic but no cigar.

    First of all, Futuristic Combat Simulators are my favorite genre and IF I were an expert in any area of gaming, it would be here. Game Spot is a great site, but sometimes they are flawed in their reviews. To me WC3 and ... Read Full Review

    Fun, BUT EXTREMELY Easy

    The storyline itself is average and common with some references to the Star Wars' Story. It has a decent size universe but its mainly copy and paste type of design where visuals and audio are just constantly reused. Th... Read Full Review

    Be a star voyager!

    It is an excellent game! He has moments of strategy, action and fun in the right measure. For those who are already fans of Elite (MSX) and Freelancer is a good option. The gameplay is also very good, without major diff... Read Full Review
