Can you fly from one system to another yet i.e. warp or whatever or are you still stuck with one orbital body?
This is the deceiving part. It's still Arena Commander, with future patches. You are in space, but within the bounding box of the two maps you can choose from.
I tried several times to play it. The controls are very laggy...I know Mr. Roberts said that was by design. When I roll my ship, it's like I have a 300ms lag. Also, the radar is the worst piece of crap I have ever seen. The center radar makes no sense. For some ships, it's not even active. They have the wing commander thing where they put an arrow at the edge of your screen pointing to your target. But...it's not 1995 anymore (most of us play higher than 640x480). The arrow is really tiny and transparent against all the stupid useless blinking UI that makes absolutely no sense...not to mention you are almost always blacking out whenever you turn (that is actually cool, but again, too much going on to follow a fucking tiny arrow).
I saw you can change the screen on the left side to four different modes. Cool...I cycled them, then my guns stopped working. This game takes about 3 minutes to load on my fairly pimp computer. So dying pretty much makes me press the exit button.
But, your avatar is synchronized with your stick movements! And the pretty! TrackIr is implemented now, so that's cool.
I just get the feeling the dev team nerded out on trivial stuff without forming the foundation of a game. They have tons of ships! Each one has it's own unique HUD and interior...and you can buy them for real money! Woot!
My two cents.
