In all the talk of graphical downgrades no one seems much preoccupied with 'why?'. Why build something and then proceed to tear it down, piece by piece, in the hope that ever more diminished expectations about the final product won't be severe enough to...
The Good: Awesome graphics and effects, nice controls, decent story, plenty of missions
The Bad: A very frustrating and odd save system, a bit too simple for people used to today's flight games
First off I don't know if it's just me but everyone you save after a mission and load the game you start back at the beginning again. I don't know whether or not you have to finish a chapter before you can save. Anyways besides this after only playing three missions I loved this game. The graphics and effects are pretty cool even for today. The controls are simple and easy and has a nice upgrade system and plenty of ships. The story alone is very long with 30+ missions. It has great voice acting and nicely rendered CG cut scenes. I recommend this game to ANY sci-fi or flight sim fan ...just make sure you have a lot of time to play.
