"How you doing? You new here? Here's what we have."
No, just no. The game was boring, the combat was dull - did anyone else notice that EVERYTHING in the entire game was on one plane? There was no Y axis, the entire universe, from the planets to asteroid belts to where the space craft warped in, it was all on the same plane.
The storyline was meh, pretty cliched. The ship designs were butt-ugly ( all the ships were blocky and oddly designed - basically if you handed a 13 year old one of those novelty giant pencils and told him to design ships, those are what you'd get) the graphics were bad, the trading was lame, the voice acting was a dud, and all the missions you flew, nomatter where you went, basically boiled down to "go here, kill these guys".
Oh yea - AND NO STICK SUPPORT!
Now, on the plus side, it has good mod support. That's it though.
