The first one bored the pants off me, but this one is absolutely fantastic. Kinda feels like Destiny 2 as an open world single player space arcade game. Awesome controls/combat/weapons/explosions, exploration, music/sound design and really nice to look at.
But is the combat fun? You can only fly in circles that many times before it becomes super mundane.
Yeah, the combat is a lot of fun. I'm only 5 hours in though. I'm not a huge space game person (hated Elite:Dangeous, hated EVE etc), but I like the combat, it feels tactical/arcadey - tactical in that there have been a variety of ships and makeups. It looked like one ship came in with some purple raygun thing that stopped me in my tracks while other ships pounced until I offed him, another encounter against 5 ships had 2 spherical drone things that could one shot my shields, so I had to prioritize those first. It actually took me a few tries to win that one so I tried upgrading a few different things and played around with my setup a bit until I beat em. I haven't noticed any combat getting stuck in circle strafing kind of shite. And I mean, all of the weapons have felt totally bad ass so far. Plus, it's got a decent enough story that keeps things fresh & flowing. I just wish they were going to add co-op besides that and a few crashes, it's really good, looking forward to playing this well into the future.
