Ratings and Reviews
I don't play many games, but this one is pretty good. The graphics are impressive and the story line is good, though one nice thing is that you're not obligated to follow that story line all the time. I find that I sort of get lost in the game and then realize that I've been at it for way longer than I had originally intended.
The icon bounces in my dock for about two minutes before the program opens, possibly because the game is a lot for my computer to handle. At first I thought that it wasn't working but it just takes time to open. My only complaint is that it isn't a very intuitive game. I'd like to think that I'm reasonably intelligent but whenever I encountered something new in the game like a new piece of equipment or a new setting, I had to get out of the program and google how to use it. It'd be nice if there were a few more explanations at the beginning so that I didn't have to do that. Now that I've gotten past the very first parts of the game, it hasn't been a problem.
Fishlabs abandoned the game. Do NOT buy
This is one of my favorite games. I spent countless hours playing it on my iPad with the Supernova and Valkyrie expansion packs. When I found this release in the App Store for my macbook pro, I was ecstatic. So I ponied up the money and bought it, eager to play on the bigger screen. The game came up just fine, and there was my iCloud save game from iPad. I click “load” only to be met with a notification that I can’t load the game--because of the DLC content--to a non-DLC game. Makes perfect sense, and I was willing to pony up the money for the DLC’s all over again as well. The add-ons button does not work. A message pops up claiming it is attempting to connect and may take up to a minute. An hour later it still hasn’t connected, so I search online. It turns out this problem is widespread (not just widespread—nobody is playing the DLC’s on OS X). And Fishlabs has been ignoring every ticket and support request that is opened for this particular problem — the game is broken and they are simply not doing anything to fix it, and they are ignoring all pleas for help.
Take the hint from the ‘Updated’ date here — Nov 27, 2012. It won’t be fixed any time soon.
A little slow at first.
Look guys, the game is HUGE! I got this for $20 as my first real app and have NEVER regeted it. Really guys! How many console games with this type of quality can you find for $10??? You can't, unless they're outdated. The graphics are insane! Acting, eh, yeah it could be better, but really, does acting really make a game bad? Yeah side missions are repetitive and yes you DO get paid more the higher level you are. My brother is the max level (20) and he gets on average $200,000 each mission. (Harder ones and missions the require more travel across the galaxy give more cash) Rate the game seperate from the add-ons please.
Just wish they said where to buy the 3 new ships.
