DarkStar One Review

Hi, my name is Nik and today i am reviewing:

DarkStar One is a space combat simulator, that stands as an monument of terrible space games. 

The story, of this disaster, starts with Kayron Jarvis, the main character, getting the DarkStar One from Robert, a friend of his father. The DarkStar One is an advance ship build by Kayron's father. This ship has the ability to "grow", if it absorbs an alien artifact. 

After Robert gives the ship to Kayron, he tells him that his father's death was not an accident, but a murder. And so you must go and find the people responsible. 

Along the way you meet with Eona, a beautiful young woman. She is a perfect example of a  boring character being in a game, just because she looks good.

I could have forgiven the game for the bad story, if the gameplay was good. Is it? No! All of the guns feel equally bad and they all have the same sound effects - like a BB gun.  

And that is a repeating theme in the game. Everything feels the same.

All of the systems, are just a station and some asteroids, or derby flaying around it. All of the enemies have ten lines, or so, that they repeat constantly. And the best part is, that in this vast galaxy there are five, or six ship types and you are all ways stuck with the DarkStar. So if you are looking for variety, you will not find it this game.

Not to say, that the game doesn't have its moments, but they are very few and far between. Still i have to give them credit for the mission, where you attacking a base on some planet. That required some skill, because the corridors were tight and filed with turrets. 

I almost forgot, the PC port is also bad. The controls are good, but the graphics are not optimized at all. 

To top it all of, DarkStar One is a terrible game, with bad story, god awful gameplay and forgettable characters.

I hope you liked my review of DarkStar One.
