The game just isn't in a finished state, and the last patch for it came out 2 years ago.
The UI is very fiddly, the scripting is so bad is offensive, and the translation from Russian is awful. I mean seriously it is painful just reading the text (nothing is voiced.)
I bought this thinking it would be like Star Wolves 1, but more sandboxy. It's like Star Wolves 1, and yes there are 100 odd systems, but each one feels just as empty and pointless as the next.
Every mission is just frustratingly bad. I think it was from pretty much the first one where I had to deliver something. I was contacted by another person 1 minute into the mission, saying "Help!" and I said "No, I was told time is a factor". I then proceeded directly to the drop off point and was greeted with "OMFG YOU ARE LATE WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?! I'M DOCKING YOUR WAGES YOU USELESS CLOWN" So I thought, what the fudge? I came straight here, directly. Wierd. So I reloaded and picked the option of helping the other person out, and bizarrely although it took 3 times as long the parcel delivery quest ended in the success script.
The next 5 or so quests are basically the same, and regardless if you go direct from A to B or faff around everyone says, "where have you been you useless fool, you're late." I don't know if it's common in Russia to speak so offensively to people, I'm not a particularly sensitive person, but god damn, it's a game. I don't need every npc in game to tell me I'm an idiot every mission regardless of its outcome.
Then again, saying all that....I'm still playing it. Maybe it's just the complete lack of games like this, but I find myself putting it up with all of it's flaws.
