    Worth what I paid...$1.50 @ Gamersgate!

    This is a decent space sim. Nothing more nothing less. It has some rough spots, most notably the voice acting and the English translations. In addition the learning curve is rather steep as well. You will likely be d... Read Full Review

    Don't buy this game

    Clumsy controls and poor HUD make this game harder to play than it should be...

    Installation and configuration is straight forward. The game has an electronic manual (PDF) but doesn't include a reader (usually Acrobat Reader). Running it for the first time, you might encounter codec issues if you do... Read Full Review

    For those looking for something new in the space sim genre, it may be best to look elsewhere.

    Dark Horizons is your typical space simulation game. While it's definitely not a bad thing at all, as anyone who's a fan of the genre will be more than happy playing this game, I just wished for more. I wanted something ... Read Full Review
