    One of the best space sim games out there....

    This game is not going to blow you away with hyperfast action, this is what can only be described as, a modern day Elite. Now, for those of you who were not around when Elite rocked everybody's world, Elite was a pivo... Read Full Review

    Stuck in the 80's

    Is this a successor to Elite? Yes. A worthy one as Gamespy called it? Heck no! The programmers should have been more professional in their delivery but they made an attempt that was half-baked at best. Don't get me wro... Read Full Review
