What an awesome game!

jediwoman | Oct. 9, 2013 | Review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim® Legendary Edition

I loved the entire Elder Scrolls series. I started with the first and have continued along as sequels were released. The odd thing is - I was not a real fan of this kind of RPG's and only started because I had played and finished one of Egosoft's X games and wanted a small break from space games. Was I in for a shock!

This game immediately grabs you and immerses you into the amazing world of Skyrim. The only drawback is that once you play Skyrim there are no other games that engage you on this level. The graphics are fantastic; but the storyline is a incredible! Skyrim itself is HUGE! I played this for several months and still have not finished it.(But I take my time and enjoy exploring every inch. I've found plenty of hidden areas and secrets which I love in a game. The loot is very cool, too.

Every one of the expansions has been top notch. I found the lore around Dragons and the Dragonborn entrancing. Your character, by the way, is completely customizable. That's good news if you enjoy playing as a woman, as I do. Too many games still do not give you that option.

The other advantage to such a great game is that fans will continue to create mods. I have not played them as yet, but I do encourage anyone thinking about purchasing Skyrim to check those out, too.

If you are a fan of RPG's this is one you do not want to pass up!

Support Indie Games - always!

jediwoman | Oct. 9, 2013 | Review of Stellar Impact

This game is a sweet little indie game! If you are a fan of space games this is a great buy for the price. HOWEVER - the big drawback is common to other indie MMO's - there are not a lot of other players around so it can be a real drag.

The graphics are nice - IMHO better than what can be expected from the run of the mill space games. I didn't have a lot of issues with controlling my ship or combat, but I play a lot of space combat games. If you can buy this along with a group of others - as in on Steam - you are golden. Otherwise, as others have pointed out - there aren't enough people playing to present a challenge. (Which is no fault of the game). I see this becoming less of a problem as more people become familiar with the game.

Overall - though - this is certainly worth the money if you love space games.

A real space combat sim!

jediwoman | Dec. 20, 2012 | Review of SOL Exodus: Collector's Edition

I was wary when I bought this game. So often space simulations end up being strategy games that prevent the gamer from having direct control over combat or the piloting. While there are plenty of people who love turn based combat, I am not one of them. Nor do I enjoy drawing little boxes around ships and clicking some a spot on the map to indicate where I want the ship to go. If you are a fan of the Wing Commander series there is a good bet you will enjoy this game.

Be prepared to spend most of your time in combat. There is a story but it isn't central to the game. I hope the developers intend to release expansions as Sol has tons of potential.
