you could try using the screenshots? they show plenty of gratuitous space battles...

the game has some of the largest maps ive ever seen, since their huge space maps, their kinda is a bunch of flying and scouting that has to be down before you can be having massive battle fleets colliding

and trust me bro you can have massive battles, each fleet with multiple carrier and destroyer class ships with tons of fighters mixing in between? yeah back in the day this and freelancer where like the best space battles i had

This is a pretty old video game release BTW bak in 2002.

If you want more info look for it. I manage to find a series of "Let's Play O.R.B." videos be sure to ignore the Orb of the king somehow youtube think they were relative.

As the for the video on store page yeah I agree there is more to O.R.B. than couples of fighter in a skirmish.

Kinda looks like Homeworld, but not good.

This is different from homeworld in a few ways. There are actually stuff moving around on the map. Like comet or asteroid belt etc...

You won't actually see those ships much if you buy the game...you spend most time in Tactical view. Though it has been a lot of years since I played this game.

I should install this game again. It was pretty fun back in the day. I wish Steam would start accepting all the game keys off these old games. I am not going to mess arround digging out a game disk in the year 2014.

depends on how you play, i only used tactical mode when i accidently hit the button, i was a hands on strategist and plus the background is just to good to sit in that mode...

I had the same feeling : "i will get bored after 20 minutes"

I agree, that was the most boring footage I've seen in a long time. Next time, I suggest showing us some action, some worthy footage that could convince someone into buying the game. In the meantime, I lost interest in this. If the devs are this lazy with trailer footage, I can only imagine what else they're lazy with... And I'm not going to buy based on so called screenshots either cuz we all know what happened with WarZ / Infestation (posted a bunch of really nice screenshots that were never in the game at all).

except this game is like 12 years old the actual devs probably have no inclusion in it being here and its just whatever company has the rights to i... and you could easily youtube something...
