Under rating threshold (show) Fuel system makes this game an unpleasant experience. Fuel is used for almost everything, from fighting to moving between maps. It's not really fun when you run out of it during combat. Seriously, there's a lot of better free games, that don't favor money spenders THAT much. Am I the only one who gets the feeling synapticon is hoping for easy money? Pay2play stuff is 3-4 times better than free2play here. I'm not going to comment that, or I'd end up using some rather rude vocabulary out of frustration.

Under rating threshold (show) I have played the game extensively and waited till I reached level 20 before I comment. Overall I feel the game has great potential. But currently there are two major flaws. 1. The training system gives a huge advantage to those who have been in the game a few weeks earlier. Nothing wrong with a bit of value for veterans but this game punishes newcomers. 2. As reported before the ships and items you can buy are unbalanced. So unbalanced that a pilot with a paid ship and cannons can take out in a few volleys a non paying pilot with a 400k ship and good skills and equipment. Again nothing wrong with paying pilots having an advantage but how much of an advantage is an issue. Granted one could still craft the Nighthawk but to get the rare resources needed would easily take a month and Kongregate funbase is not known for its patience.

Under rating threshold (show) Has potential, but the fuel system detracts significantly from the game. Particularly with missions that seem designed largely to consume fuel.

Under rating threshold (show) After playing the first 60 missions I have to say this game is incredibly repetitive, travel to point X (identical to every other region often with the same structures), kill 1-5 "pods" with terrible combat AI amongst a field of other ships in your way, travel back to origin point, repeat infinitely. The only intellectual challenge this game offers is to figure out why the developers felt the need to create an "activation" ability for medicine delivery instead of simple docking.

Under rating threshold (show) The game is mediocre at best, and then only gets worse when you're trying to play solo missions and some pathetic loser comes along to kill you. But you can't really fault the losers ... the game is designed poorly if the end result is that losers can sit around and snipe players minding their own business in a non PvP area.

Under rating threshold (show) My main and pretty much only gripe about this game is that to play for more than twenty minutes a day you would have to spend real world money to buy more fuel. Sure, when you level up it gives you a free refuel but that really doesnt cut it. They need to put an option in such as at least a 50 percent refueling for say, a thousand credits. Otherwise this game will just become another of those fly by the night money scam operations. Which would be sad considering it is a decent game.

Under rating threshold (show) How is this game rated so well when it's such a blatant money grab? Perhaps some folks are fine with rewarding greed over innovation and skill, but not I. I'm fine with well-made games offering some microtransaction possibilities, I mean heck, that's what Kreds are all about. But the ones that give such a distinct advantage to people willing to part with money so easily, are just ridiculous.

Under rating threshold (show) As a fellow developer of online multiplayer games, I found there are certain defined limits to what you can charge players for, and what you should not. This is definitely crossing that limit. Charge players to buy things in the game that are fun, but not useful. Decorative items, items that let them personalize their characters BEYOND the free-to-plat limit. I think of ROTMG as a good example. You don't need colors to be as good as everyone else in the game, but they are their to make you stand out for the crowd.

Instakilled, then soon enough healed up to full and do it all over. Endless grind to get dogtags I guess. He even admitted to having multiple accounts, using that exploit in the game to gain an edge. Developers,, can you do something about this???????

Under rating threshold (show) It doesn't seem this game is playable for non-paying players. After I reached level 20, when I enter a hostile zone for mining, Anteras for example. I found that I would be killed in 10 second, and eventually I used up all of my credit for repairing the ship and need to wait for repairing. As a result, the actual playing time in the last few days is less than 10 minute excluding the training. I believe that many players will be forced to quit for similar reason.

Under rating threshold (show) The base of the game is good. Two big problems I see is there is no way to get more fuel without the player putting up some cash. Big fault. If you want cash then make it a paid game. The regen time on the fuel is just insulting. Don't BS it. The start of the game just has you running around with no good explanation of how the weapons work, Fuel, ect. Auto fire, manual fire, rating the weapons should be clearer like DPS. The tutorial does not explain much and needs to be polished. The game seem fun but the the few flaw I have found (more the fuel than anything) just kill the game. I could see this a 5 star game if its fix up a bit. but for now 1 star, I hate be force to pay after the game starts and 1 hour of sitting to refuel for 15 min of play, I have better things to do.

Under rating threshold (show) I'll say the same thing I do about all these pay-to-play games: get this moneygrubbing garbage off of Kongregate. There are plenty of companies with reasonable premium models, and I don't begrudge them for it. But this is ridiculous. I just don't care about your crappy little Flash game enough to make a major hobby about it, and there's really no reason why I should. One star, with extreme prejudice.

Under rating threshold (show) The fuel's not an issue for those of use who don't want to play all day. The most annoying thing that is going a long way to ruining the game is that you don't get to choose whether you participate in fights against other players. So i'm minding my own business doing missions then get blown up by some level 20 turd for no reason whatsoever, and there's not a damn thing you can do about it. That's why 3 stars and no more.

Under rating threshold (show) The gameplay is almost like other flying games I have played. It handles good at times but, in some ways reminds me of Dark Orbit. Question is will this be a multiplayer game co-operation type game or will you be initiating a PVP as well. I also, noticed the Westin's Uniform Council Tyrol and, yea wonders the same do we have another Battlestar Fan. Will have more comments later.. Definitely a game that peaks my interest.

Under rating threshold (show) For a flash game it's actually quite good. For the price of tokens it's abysmal. To put into perspective a beginner ship + a full complement of token only upgrades is 60 tokens which is roughly $10. Top Level ships with all the best upgrades meanwhile are 1175 tokens or going through kred-dollars conversion about $150. Compare that to other gaming options. For the price of a single fully outfitted ship you could have 10 months or more of a big time subscription mmo, at least 2 (Could easily buy many more) brand new console/pc games or heck even a game console itself wouldn't be much more. Granted you can manufacture ships that are close to the same level (still a pretty hefty gap) but that means playing a game that already limits your play time(through fuel) for weeks or months to get the required equipment. I could maybe see paying $20-30 for a ship in a game like this provided there was somewhat more varied gameplay but as is the prices are beyond ludicrous for the quality of game.
