Comment: i thought ace online is the international version, air rivals is the european version, and Space Cowboy Online is the north american version that is now closed...

anyway, this is a pretty good game, u fly around in a Gear (a plane thing), or drive around if u chose the M-gear (a tank), and i rather lik the freedom of flying around, this game is fun for people who lik flying games and third-person shooters...

Comment: Good game, pvp is okay and lots of drops from ships.. fuel is a bit annoying though since you have to keep a constant eye on it and then head back to a fuel station.

Party system is kinda.. uh.. Crap. you select a formation and basically its sit back, fire, and dont talk because nobody will talk back to you.

Comment: I've only played this game casually over the past week (level 18 ship) so I'm not real well versed in the higher levels or advanced game content yet.

I will say, the game is fun if you like shooter games. I enjoyed chasing down enemies and actually having to employ some skill to win a fight.

But the game is very lonely. It's got hardly any team play at all, and nobody talks to anyone else. The maps were also a disappointment. I was expecting it to be more like a traditional MMO where every area is connected. But instead, each map is relatively small (there are invisible walls preventing you from flying too far out) and in order to get to another area you must use a warp portal.

PVP is... well, annoying. I don't like the auto-targeting aspect of missiles; it takes away the appeal of this game being skill-based. I also don't like the fact that you can't tell what level or upgrades a ship has just by looking at it, because every ship looks the same. I need to know this information, so I can decide whether to run or to stay and fight. No amount of good-aim or maneuvering will aid you in beating a ship that is much better geared or higher level than you, because your hits just won't do damage.

Overall, it's just okay. It's a good idea, but they executed it badly. I prefer Subspace to this, but then I'm not a graphics whore.

Comment: for ppl that give this 1 to 4 think about it.HOW many games have Skills in it?Really I think just about RS.Very fun game for the Sci Fi lovers.Hundreds of Quests to keep you occupy.I wouldn't say that this is Gpotaotos best game but they did well.solid combat system.This game should keep you occupied to 1 to 3 months.

Comment: The game kicks butt. Well thats cause I been playing it for some time.. really good graphics... And amazing game play grinding does get boring your usually stuck in one map for at least 5-10 levels. The game could also be a little more team based.. Well it is when your a high lvs (I got a lv 64 M-gear) but the low levels get walked on. The download is huge so I"d say don"t bother with it unless it"s a game you can see your self playing for atleast a month+

Comment: For a game like this, it's a good game... cause usually I won't try this game... I would say it's more like an MMORPG space game where you go and shoot'em and get quests and stuff... O.o so yeah... ^-^ I liked it... O.o but not as much as the other gpotato games.

Comment: This game is pretty fun for a little while. The game does start slowing down at higher levels... Think of it as a slower starfox turned MMO.

Comment: This game is cool but the PvE is not that great, but i would suggest giveing it a try because:
Pros: Lots of Quests, Good PvP, and dont forget its free
Cons: Lots of grinding, Not very team based because only higher lvls party, and your doomed to a map for each 10 lvls.

Comment: Best free MMOFPS I have played yet. Certainly beats the same old fantasy games. The PvP is awesome. The only negative that I did not take off points for is that its a large download with pretty high system requirements.

Comment: This game isn't slow paced if you are actually fighting people. There are many good aspects of the game that are fun, like the PvP. It may not be as good as other games like World of Warcraft or Guild Wars, but it's a nice change from the usual MMORPG that a person would play
