Hi,

I opened this thread here because there is not any forum for Star Raiders.

Do you think it is a good game? Is it worth to purchase it?

I know that Star Raiders is a Atari classic. But this new one: what do you think about? :)

Check some reviews, I'll try and get some links, it looks good.

For 7 it's not the biggest loss if it's bad.

Same here, I found reviews for the old ones though :p.

It looks fun but for all we know it could be a buggy mess.

Hum, I was expecting this game for some time.

Perhaps the only way to know more about be purchasing it and trying it. :(

Reminds me of Free lancer. I never finished that game but I think I may give this one a try and download it tonight or tomorrow.

It looks like an on-rails shooter from the screenshots.

The controls are bad is pretty much the biggest complaint.

I was wondering this as well. It looks nice in the screenshots.

I heard this being compared positively to 'Elite'...for any OLDTIMERS out there, does this comparison stand up?

I actually bought this hoping it'd be like Elite, or Freespace. Hell, I bought this hoping it'd be a good game. Save your money, the game is virtually unplayable with how bad the controls are. After you do the first mission, you've seen them all. It gets very repetitive.

Thanks for your opinion. I was expecting this game. :(

The mouse/keyboard controls are almost unplayable, but the Xbox 360 controller works pretty well for it. It takes some getting used to though because you switch between different modes with the D-Pad, which changes the way you fly around (slower, ability to strafe). It feels more like an arcade game than a deep, immersive space combat sim.

So, if you're more into the action of those games you might enjoy it. No voice acting though, aside from the intro sequence, which is pretty crappy looking. The story is pretty bland. But once you get into the combat, it can be pretty fun and challenging in the later levels. I made a crappy video if you want to see it in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1mfnnfDHHg
