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.
