Under rating threshold (show) This is the logic: 1 kill shot = 1 crystal; 2 shots kill = 2 crystals; 3 shots kill = 3 crystal and that is it.

Under rating threshold (show) After mixed feelings on first impression, this game turned up to be good. Nice graphics, decent sound, light story. Speaking of story, using small font with ALL CAPS is not the best way to narrate, especially during the combat. Also, devs, fix the bug with losing focus on the mission start (player has to click on game after mission starts, otherwise controls do not respond), add way to skip in-mission chatter and write the alternate keys (I, O, P) in the instructions field.

Under rating threshold (show) Also, coolant upgrades are pretty damn pointless if you have to wait too long before the next wave of enemies... It would be better with a timer to see how long a powerup remains, and how long your buffs remains..

Under rating threshold (show) you should reward more crystals on the late missions, I am stuck and the progression back there really sucks, compared to "farming" an older mission, and frankly, going back to farm a mission sucks... Also make it quicker to retry a map!.

Under rating threshold (show) Nice game but there are parts of the world such as whole Europe that don't use QWERTY keyboard. On German QWERTZ and French AZERTY Z is not near X and C.

Under rating threshold (show) i cannot remember when ive enjoy so much a game of this type. very good graphics, story, gameplay and the upgrade system its relly well done. in my personal opinion the special attack is not necesary and let you totally unprotected with a minimun benefit, but its as i see that only. I hope see the sequel soon!!! thanks and congrats!!!

Under rating threshold (show) The asteroid field levels have the problem that there're background asteroids that won't do anything to you and foreground ones that'll hurt you if you hit them, and it's not always the easiest thing telling them apart. Not only that, the larger ones can apparently one-shot you. So it's possible to die suddenly in those levels.

Under rating threshold (show) I sided with the girl. I "refused my final mission" by quitting the game. Not cool throwing her under the bus like that, I liked her. And I wanted to punch Quaid in his ugly face. Not cool taking her out and making me work for him, I refused to do it. I won't be finishing this game now, and I look forward to the idea of Quaid getting blown to hell without me.

Under rating threshold (show) You need hover jets on to hover in space?? Well thats news to me, jets shouldn't be on all the time, should only show when pressing a directional key. because there is no air resistance in space... or gravity.

Under rating threshold (show) I really enjoyed this game. It was well-designed, although a few wrinkles exist. I think the series has good promise. Even the story is noteworthy (albeit a little cliche).

Under rating threshold (show) Great game - very well polished. With the cutscenes, art, and English (Usually for a game of this quality, I'd expect Japanese origin and poor grammar.), but especially with the level replay value, which keeps the plot consistent. I don't mind the clicking - it's really not that much of a bother. However, upgrades should include weapon cooling and a "magnet" for the crystals. Also, I find myself accidentally pressing "z" a lot, and thus screwing myself over for the rest of the mission. As a side note, that laser level is too damn hard. And when I have to retry it time and time again, I'd prefer not having to bear with the dialogue.

Under rating threshold (show) The overheating isn't that annoying, but there should be an upgrade to reduce it somewhat. I'm more annoyed by the fact that the levels/bosses don't give you huge amounts of crystals - so if you want to upgrade your ship you have to replay the old minefield level a bunch. That is not fun. Too many upgrades are a mixed bag - like firing off a bunch of missiles at once without increasing your capacity. Why would you even bother getting the final launcher upgrade? So you can run out of ammo twice as fast? No thanks. It is a fun game, but it seriously needed to be beta tested by some experienced gamers. It would've had a much higher rating and made more money if you'd done that.

Under rating threshold (show) Contrary to popular opinion, I liked the keyboard only controls, which gave it a pretty retro feel to it; I liked the difficulty level, which was actually pretty tough at times, and I liked the weapon cooldown system as a means to stop simply spamming shots at everything, I actually had to tactically use my missiles for the heavy situations. The fact you can freely change your build is another, frequently overlooked, perk. I also liked the plot - though it was a little predictable, the art was nice and it felt pretty decently polished. This all said, I do agree that upgrades need to incorporate a tractor beam for crystals, a coolant upgrade would be nice, and other weapon systems that weren't just ammo-based power ups are areas to improve on in the sequel, which I'm looking forward to.

Under rating threshold (show) enemy shields are nearly invincible, enemy ships can phase through asteroids you can't. these are 2 game mechanics that detract heavily from game play. 3/5 overall

Under rating threshold (show) Pretty fun except for two things: the text sound is fairly annoying, and the dialog; some times you just don't want to click 10x through a screen. So: 1) Way to mute the dialog sound fx' and/or 2) 'Turn off RP mode (no dialog at all)'.

Under rating threshold (show) Two things that would improve the game play dramatically: 1. As Omnivar stated a coolant upgrade for shooting 2. A 'vacuum' device to suck in the crystals (hard to collect them while shooting/avoiding enemies)
