I don't recall anyone saying anything bad about it, other than the curve to get into it. Which isn't always a bad thing...


I've played a bit of it. It's not as simple as something like Wing Commander, but it's not as complex as a real sim like Blackshark DCS. So there are a fair bit of things to learn. There are lots of options (merc, trader, etc.) but I haven't played through them yet. The game has Newtonian physics, but the default mode has the computer use the manuevering thrusters to automatically adjust the ship flight path, similar to XWing, but it's easy to turn that off if you'd prefer to do the Full Newton. There's a demo here, so if you're on the fence, you could try it. The team seems committed having continuously patched it since release a year ago.
