Under rating threshold (show) Truly a cowards game: Cloak in an enemy sector, observe a pilot farming, wait till his shields are down, uncloack and let the fireworks begin. And dont let me start ranting about the pay to win aspect...

Under rating threshold (show) Fun engaging game, immersive at times... until that jerk on 3-4 shots you down repeatedly for a few days and you realize you can't fight him, run away or do quests anymore on those maps. Thankyou "Fearles leader". 1 star wasted 15 kreeds to get the PET only to not be able to do jack **** against an older player

Under rating threshold (show) This has to be the worst thought out interface in gaming I have seen. Way too complicated. Could be simplified so much. Why no real instructions on how to play after the initial guide? It leaves you stranded with absolutely no idea how to proceed to advance. Wiki for game is terrible.

Under rating threshold (show) Ok so the game is challenging in the sense that players will attempt to kill you right from the start but heres a few tips use the auction hall to get a goliath any variant it'll give you the time to escape some times, anything that cost U you want to just get in the auction hall yes i know that means getting millions of credits use the skylabs resource transport about level 4 you can ship 800000c worth to your ship oh and if you have U dont spend on ammo buy lf-3 lasers or an iris drone

Under rating threshold (show) Play Nova raider instead. It's basically the same game, but it works and you can play it on kongregate rather than being redirected. http://www.kongregate.com/games/Sublinet/nova-raider?acomplete=nova+ra

Under rating threshold (show) The original Dark Orbit was better. This new version is not just play to win, it's unplayable. You can't attack anything with your lasers because your ship doesn't have a laser cannon, and there's nowhere in the game that tells you how to get one. Missiles work, but you're not allowed to use them in the 3rd mission, so I'm stuck.

Under rating threshold (show) First, when you click "Start" to actually fly your spaceship around in space, it takes you off Kong and logs you into Bigpoint's own site. Second, the tutorial is garbage, especially when explaining features (like "configurations") introduced post-2010. I'm writing this in 2016, and this is a real problem. Third -- and most importantly -- your own faction's players have no compunction about murdering you, so you never get a chance to grind, much less attack the enemy faction. Any one of these problems would be tolerable; three of them is unacceptable.

Under rating threshold (show) What ever happened to creating a game simply because it was your passion and you wanted to prove yourself capable to get the attention of companies looking for passionate creative developers? Its like most of the games I find are developed with the sole purpose of Pay to Win! Pay to Win is (in my book) only a step above same day downloadable content for a game you just paid full price for. Sure you can play, but the absence of missing content is too prominent not to notice. In this case its a hostage situation where you must pay in order to defend yourself, to speak nothing of any joy you MIGHT experience after paying.

Under rating threshold (show) I'm in a bit of disbelief that this scam of a game made it on the "new games" list somehow. Obviously money was involved. Screw it, I'll just say it, they used bribery to game the system. I'm not willing to take a look at what they changed due to how offensive the original was; there is nothing to salvage here. The idea wasn't badly implemented; there wasn't room for improvement. The game itself started from a foundation of pay-to-win and nothing can change that. If they really wanted to distance from the scam pay-to-win that came before, they would have just created a new game that wasn't designed for that model.

Under rating threshold (show) You'd think that a gaming website with a comment section filled with people whining about pay to win would influence the devs. They might as well just make the game itself cost money to play.

Under rating threshold (show) FUND THIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIS. Starfighter Infinity (Video search reference: Starfighter Disputed Galaxy, but most of them don't even show half or more than half of everything) http://www.benoldinggames.co.uk/ Bloody hackers ruined it even though it was pure skill and not a money grabber -.- It was pretty much like LoL but with space ships and you could edit your abilities by using hangars inside the main stations and outpost stations.

Under rating threshold (show) I am a member of Kongregate and I want to stop playing the Dark Orbit game indefinitely. It is like ending my membership with bigpoint.com where I am not in any way a member of such site, but I am a proud member of Kongregate which has been my only website i enjoy playing online games.

Under rating threshold (show) Nothing against Germans because my niece is German. But they make horrible games. This happens to be one of them. Unfortunately they give a lot of sway to the wallet warriors who play their games and the newbies never have a chance. I see they disabled pvp in X1 maps back in 2010...Way too late now.

Under rating threshold (show) This might be the most godawful piece of garbage to hit the front page of Kong in the nearly 6 years I've been here, and it's been here almost as long as I have. No game on Kong should ever send you offsite without your permission. Did I fall in a hole to 1999 popups or a torrent site?

Under rating threshold (show) As with so many of these games the developers have massively under-invested in the infrastructure to run it. At peak times (and even at off-peak times sometimes) the lag makes the game completely unplayable.

Under rating threshold (show) 0/5. It takes too long to save Pilot sheet. I try to set my B-day but it automatically sets it to 30/7. Don't even bother trying to play this piece of $#!*. I noticed that others also said that the game is annoying as well. Try to make a better game next time.

Under rating threshold (show) Development has become extremely slow to the point where you're seeing a single, small update every year. They have clearly shown over the years that they will not be making an attempt to fix the obvious balancing issue or attempt to regain there old audience. I would advise that you don't waste your time or money on this game, it's so clearly dead with the only reason it still being up is because people are willing to spend large sums of cash to battle it out.

Under rating threshold (show) Yup, still the same old Dark Orbit I remember. Where you always have to be on the look out for those better equipped players that kill you in just a few hits. I guess they kill you to make their ego bigger or something, because being a lower ranked/under equipped player can be frustrating. If you want to play a space sim game where you won't get cooked in just a few hits by some big players, look elsewhere.
