Gratuitous Space Battles

I have to say, the description seems to encapsulate the spirit of another game we all know and revere.

Here's the link: http://positech.co.uk/gratuitousspaceba ... iQod6iz6Ig
I've never played this, has anyone else here tried it? How was it?

"You know how the space combat scenes in Battlestar Galactica were terrible and epic and oddly serene, all at once? This game is like that. It has lovely graphics, a lot of depth, an alarming amount of replayability, and a great sense of humor, to boot" = Tom Chick


I remember those. Also, the ones in Babylon 5, they looked like they'd been done in an RTS.

It is pretty cool, but I do wish there was more control once the battle started.

I played it. Space battle effects, ship customizing and orders input is awesome, but I agree with Massam, after you hit "Fight!", theres not much you can do but watch the fireworks...

Kill your neighbour. Or buy a PC. I think the first suggestion was a bit radical. Or if you are really mac-loyal, try a partition in your drive of a few GB (Garlic Bread), or use parallels.
