Its fun pretty graphics, Lazers going pew pew pew and stuff. Sort of like War Thunder but with a space theme. If War Thunder and Fractured Space had a baby it would be this. Read on if you want some quick basic info about it that i think its all the main stuff.
Its just really enjoyable to play for a free to play its great, not sure about the pay 2 win as of yet because i've only had 3 games. But so far it doesn't feel unfair i've not even leveld up yet.
Controls are simple but may be a bit odd to some The controls are similar to Strike Vector. Its a bit weird for the first minute or so but it works really well.
Dog fighting in this is ♥♥♥♥ing awesome. The Rush having to go invisible to find a safer place to recover while your shields low. Its just awesome especially with an extra wide set up whether 21:9 or eyefinity custom res side by side on two or three monitors.
I can actually play this game in eyefinity mode across two monitors without the bezel in the middle annoying the ♥♥♥♥ out of me.
Manufactoring seems kinda cool you learn things, then process things and use things and i think you can sell them too for extra cash thingies in the game. What ever the blue stuff is.
Even your moms laptop should run this alright i get great fps with the settings turned up and my pc is running a R9 270x 2gb which is like a £120 gpu. (well more for mine because its an asus directcu ii top so that was 180 with bf4 a game i dont play).
Main Menu is a cluster ♥♥♥♥ full of all sorts of stuff you can't be arsed reading and looking into. But having said that the manufacture thing seems to make sense so far i've only done one item so far.
The time it takes to connect to a game. Over 5mins to join the same game with the same people. what the ♥♥♥♥ is up with that?
Some of the stuff doesn't make sense or it does but i'm just not figuring it out properly. I dont get the crew system thing for example. For some it will be a jump in and you'll understand it all for others it may be a wtf does that mean?
People are ♥♥♥♥♥ing about abusive admins here in the comment section. Personally I have no idea i've had like 3 games with the same people in a row. Takes like 5mins to connect but it might be the time of day that i'm playing or maybe people don't play it anymore. I dont know if it is few dedicated servers or what.
All in all Definately Worth a try. Its Free it wont hurt to have a different experience, you'll either like it, dislike it or hate it i'm just simply stating my thoughts about it. Its fun its gripping at times flying through asteroid fields during a team match that involves dying less than the other team due to reinforcement waves. The Domination matches. It Looks awesome and is even more awesome when the action gets really intense. Also it doesn't require an amazing computer to run this. This much fun this nice pretty graphics and its free. What more can you want? There is a few irritating things like trying to time your cool down timers correctly for using flares or you wanna jump in a game quickly and your stuck connecting for 5+mins and then to find out oh hey the games almost over so you have to go through all that again. It does need more servers. But for what you get the game is pretty solid does a good job is fun pretty and easy to get the hang of.
give it an 8/10
I feel like it would be a 9 if it was a more simplified cleared up main menu page and the game had a proper ingame voice over tutorial to explain to you what the stuff on the menu is and how you get it. I personally don't like clustered menus. It gets a bit confusing and servers are a pain in the ♥♥♥. The wait times are terrible and that is a huge deal breaker as it can lead to less time actually playing the game. I feel like it doesn't quite do enough to make the 10 it could do with more ships, more cosmetics and stuff for free to play users. Like pimping out the ships a bit with maybe neons or something would be cool just to give it that me more personalization (if thats even a word).
Just play it. Do the tutorial to figure the controls then just jump straight in a battle you'll see how much fun it is. Its not like you can do much after only doing a tutorial mission
P.S It needs more servers with more players on them! Sick of 4 actual players in the one game in total and the rest being ai bots. Get it fixed! It deserves it.
