Ran across a reference to this game while browsing the FS2 section of the GameSpot forums... has anyone ever played it or its younger brother?

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

I played a demo. It was really fairly good.

The problem is, you needed to be connected to the internet to use it, and there was something about the missions being streamed from online. I don't really remember much about it. That may be why you are not able to get past loading, because the missions are no longer available on line. Since it is no longer supported, I don't know that you can play it any more, even if you own the complete game.

At least, that's what I can remember about it.

Say what? I dL'd it form the link here in this thread, And played both Instant actions at home on my work laptop. It worked fine.

I dont like the game (nothing personal) it just doesnt grab me as FS, WC or I-War do. It reminds me of x-com interceptor. (but without the resource management and the other good bits)

Hmm. That is different. I played it about 2 years ago and I seem to recall that is the way it worked.

I suppose I could be mistaken! :)
