I've just spent almost 5 minutes of combat animation trying to flank those two beam frigates or whatever they're called... Really, invincible armor? Why don't you give one to me? Either that, or give me a weapon that actually inflicts damage, because those missiles just don't do anything in any reasonable time.
Why is there no speed up button? Why do I have to waste additional 30 seconds of my life waiting for those "animations" to finish?
Combat would be fun if there was an actual combat... MS's minesweeper is more dynamic, and no, the fact, that it basically is a turn-based game does not mean, that the combat must be so slow.
Seriously, this game is boring, slow paced, and does not offer any interesting feature. If you consider buying it... don't.
