John doesn't fight to rack up kills or for honor and pride. At least not anymore. He just fights to survive and get the whole thing over with. His ship is controlled by Ellie, an Artificial Intelligence which is programmed to help pilots stay mentally strong throughout the war and which cannot kill human beings.

Federation is about to turn the tide of the war but then things start to go wrong. Ellie puts John into hibernation for 1000 years. Now he will have to discover what really happened and maybe, but just maybe, save the galaxy.

Nevermind 5 stars

Ok I finally figured out what I was doing wrong. Start at the beginning again to earn credits, buy upgrades, then advance. Game is fun again.

Decent rails shooter

Pretty good on rails shooter. Like that there are now IAPs in it, everything is upgraded via in-game money.

The graphics are good and it is easy to see what are targets versus background ships and other objects.

You also get breaks in combat to make choices during the level to branch off what you want to do, in other words rail path changes.

Only downfall is the voice acting is TERRIBLE and sounds like it was recorded in someones house. I think the word "John" is the new rage in the universe, may as well replace "the" for it as you hear your pilot's name at almost every line of pilot communication. Also, the random VO John gives during dogfights is really irritating.

I recommend it based on price, especially if you want a quick "blow crap up" game. It is not a hard game, and the levels take about 10 minutes to get through.
