I've been playing Derek Smart's Battlecruiser 3000 AD from the beggining. Now it just got better and better. There are a few bugs... any game has a few... but there are also patches to fix them. This game offers a gigantic universe to explore and fight, even if it will take some time to acctually see all the features. This game is lacking a tutorial but if u take your time and look over the 100+ pages documentation you will find out about all the systems, ships, weapons, planets, and much more. The game's unique feature is that you also need to keep your eye on the crew , even in the middle of the battle. Enemy ships can and WILL teleport marines on your ship to kill you. In space the targets are easy enough to kill or flee from them but on a planet's surface things change. Many people don't like that the game is running in real time, so it will take some good (real) days to make a good ship and to learn all it's functions and systems.
You will need to spend at least 50 hours to fully understand the game and to see some great 30+ ships battles.
