Not worth purchase
Yes it's 1.99$ can't complain but I'd like to point out that this game is just like Asteriods. Same platform type. My only compliant is traveling through space. It's slow and the gravity is annoying. If you hold your thrust for to long you'll be sent off and slowing down is a pain. I had gotten to the first mission to destroy the UTA ships and it's super annoying due to the fact that the ships buzz all around the screen after that the annoying gravity factor you cant catch up or catch the ships. By the time you catch up the enemy ships will just buzz off across the screen making it difficult to catch them. Cat and mouse game. Not only that but your givin very weak lasers to fire and the recharge is bad. Great graphics but overall this game is horrible for combat. Give it a try. You'll get annoyed fast.

Also IGM Game of the Year 2011, both Editor and Player choice, so opinions may vary :)

True. I can understand that. It may be a game that isnt for everyone.

Very true, when SPAZ came out, there were no space games at all for a LONG time. It plays very much like more old school games like Star Control 2 that my partner and I really missed. Not everyone likes the old space shooter days but for those of use that do, it is really fun.

Right I can see it being a fun game for a lot of people. I just cant get into it due to the controls. Thats all.
I absolutly love this game, had to stop doing my homework and continue playing, I will try to buy it soon :D

Don't bash the game just because it's control system is foreign to you. If you play it right ships will never be able to get away from you.

Plays like Asteroids?
Are you joking? Have you ever actually PLAYED Asteroids?

Okay both are supposed to be in space I guess, but nothing else is even remotely similar.
You payed two fu**ing dollars for it you greedy pig and 128 MB of memory if you don't like it then so be it but don't say its not worth it jeez I mean sure I have a problem with my ships being slower then dirt but its still a fun game and as long as you never use cannons the weapons are pretty powerful

Haha, what? There is stuff to complain about - rate of fire cap, vanilla missiles/bombs being underwhelming, cannons vs lasers ending up somewhat in favor of cannons due to rof/boosters - but... Asteroids? Even among the starting ship types some are much more maneuverable than others, you can't start with a low-mobility cargo ship and expect it to play like a Dart. Default hotkey X as a great way to slow down (not a fan of it defaulting to right next to C though - slightly useful for cloak builds, nightmarishly terrible for shield builds) but staying on the move and circling enemies becomes ever more important as you start running into stuff like Manta Rays and other extremely high-damage, but low-mobility/turretless enemy ships that you don't want to get hit by.

Yeah there's stuff to fix, and I hope that SPAZ2 ends up a better and more balanced game, but SPAZ is pretty damn good and these criticisms are baseless. Bring up legitimate concerns if you want 'em addressed seriously.

Play for longer than 20 minutes and buy some better ships and upgrades. Just like every other progression based single-player game it start you with basic ships. Or I suppose you could buy a bag of chips and eat that in 1 minute and lose the $1.99 for that.

This is one of the best games I've bought on steam, It's also one of the cheapest.
At £2 it's a no brainer, the mods add even more to an already excellent game.

i tried this, and already love it, i bought it up now, feel kinda bad at buying it on sale since it means they make less than if i paid normal price, maybe when i can afford i'll buy a gift copy for a friend :) My only real problem are the typos >.< and when that miner guy refers to himself as a girl. Oh and i'm not really used to this control layout, is there a way to make s for reverse be based on screen so no matter where i face, it makes my ship move in the direction to the bottom of my screen, and the same for each other direction? it throws me off when i'm facing south and left now means right in proportion to my screen. other than that, i really enjoy this game.
