This game is one of the most fun I've played in a while. Flying and shooting through space while avoiding missiles and other ships is fantastic. The story is decent but doesn't stand out much. The game isn't too long but with the scoreboard and upgrades there are reasons to play the same level several times. This game is a shooter, so if you wanted to explore space this game probably wouldn't be the one. I play it with keyboard and mouse and it controls great. I didn't even decide to try it with my game-pad. The game is beautiful to look at. Unfortunately, for me at least, after flying and maneuvering for too long I start to feel dizzy. I've never been able to play for an extended period of time. Even with that I'm very happy I decided to purchase this game. I definitely thought it was worth my money.

Strike Suit Zero is incredible at times. It has fast space action that outshines most other games in the genre. Its a feast for the senses and you will simply be in awe as you dodge and weave around missiles and send out swarms to destroy your foes. Unfortunately the game has missed some potential and isn't all what it could be. The biggest problem here is that some missions they try to switch things up by making you not control your suit, in the beginning it is for story reasons but I still think its a mistake, an earlier introduction of the suit would have been better when the game is named after said suit. Almost all screenshots you will see will also show this mech, which has incredibly cool design by the way. Later in the game there are stages where you are put in a regular fighter again, I understand they are in to offer some variety but at those missions I constantly wished to be back in the Strike Suit, cause that is the star of the show.
The game also has some problematic storytelling, much of it is in text between missions and otherwise radio chatter mid mission. In the end its hard to keep track of however that is alright since the game stands fine on gameplay alone. The music deserves mention as it is fabulous throughout.
The missions are often quite straight forward and can be repetitive as well, though the core of the gameplay is good enough to make you overlook this. And ultimately that is the bottom line here, Strike Suit Zero is good enough to hold your attention and to offer a full recommendation from me. Just except a few bumps along the road in an otherwise excellent space shooter.

Although it's a decent space game, a great one of its kind, it's lacking multiplayer mode.
Also, lack of content. I have beaten this game easily. For 20 bucks, I expected more. Don't forget various issues this game had - despite the developer's effort to fix it.
Maybe if it's 10 dollars I'd have given this a better rating.
A Good Game in Need of Extra Polishvideopower77 | Jan. 27, 2013 | See all videopower77's reviews »
The game looks fantastic and the combat is engaging however there are a couple of faults that prevent this game from being a classic. The mission variety is lacking and the checkpoint system can cause a lot of frustration. The game is very challenging and having to replay a challenging portion of a mission has ticked off a lot of people. The missions lack variety and imagination and are the standard escort/kill everything but it wouldn't surprise me if we see better missions via DLC.
The game is good but don't set your expectations too high and you will enjoy Strike Suit Zero.

Space? Check. Giant ships? Check. Transforming death-spitting robots? Got that too. Chances are that if you enjoyed any of the Ace Combat series or had fun watching mecha anime, you'll lap this up. The first thing that will strike you is the graphics; for an indie offering they are excellent and really lend themselves to the game and it's mechanics. The gameplay is generally good although the difficulty curve will be very sharp for players not used to flight games, but after you clear that initial fence you'll be having a whale of a time blasting down those darn colonists. The story is the usual objective based bibble, "Save /destroy the X to defeat/save the Y", but you can forgive it as the game would suffer if it were dialogue heavy That said the game otherwise is an excellent indie offering that deserves your consideration for being fun, challenging and the only one of it's kind for long time.
