Big disappointmentalbero78 | May 17, 2013 | See all albero78's reviews »
My opinion: I have bought this game looking for something not too ambitious but similar to Freelancer, which came out ages ago and everybody knows. After having played for a while this "Galaxy on Fire 2" I can say it is a disappointment: the graphics are really poor for a nowadays game. I know this comes from Ipad and it is not a AAA game, but they are nevertheless very disappointing. But more than that it is the interface that doesn't allow me to enjoy the game: interface has many loopholes and it is weak. Remember the easy way you could equip and upgrade your ship, selling products and set waypoints on the map in Freelancer? Well, forget about it.
Don't get fooled and skip this one.
Not bad for the priceFaPaThY | May 4, 2013 | See all FaPaThY's reviews »
I'm a big fan of space combat/trading sims, so when I saw this on sale for under $4, my interest was piqued.
The playable area is relatively large, there's a good selection of ships and weapons, lot of side missions, etc. Pretty standard stuff for this type of game and done competently well.
It all gets repetitive pretty fast though, because there are only a handful of side mission types and the combat basically devolves into holding down the strafe button, which lets you dodge pretty much all enemy fire, and circle strafing everything to death. The campaign is pretty standard affair too. It's short, forgettable and the voice acting ranges from sub-par to decent. There aren't really any moments that make you yell out, "Cool!" or anything.
The graphics, while pretty on the surface and look nice in screenshots, aren't really that impressive in motion. The universe just feels static and lifeless and simple things like planets not rotating or stars not twinkling are a bit distracting. The models themselves for ships and stuff look alright, but it takes more than just high res textures to make a game look really good.
As negative I seem about the game, I'll say it's definitely worth playing if you can get it on sale. Maybe if they ever decide to release the DLC/expansions, it'll be worth playing some more.
Great game, for a phone or handheld deviceslinktoheaven | Jan. 11, 2013 | See all linktoheaven's reviews »
I had good time playing GoF1 on my Nokia 6230i, and after that Deep 3D and other games from Fish Labs. All in all this is a fine game but they didnt give their best when they ported it on PC, i mean sure it has good FPS and its not buggy (cant say same for most of pc ports in last few years), they added some stuff that was not on mobile version.
Bottom line is, its a great game and i cant wait to see Fish Labs new games but they could have improved a lot and added a lot more content for PC since its not limited as handheld devices and phones. I know its not fair that PC version has a lot more stuff then mobile ones and thats why i think they should stick to making phone games because they are damn good at it.

A fun game that could have been great with a bit more depth.fable2 | Oct. 31, 2012 | See all fable2's reviews »
Classic sandbox space combat game that is very reminiscent of Dark Star One, Tachyon the Fringe, etc. which are all based on the classic game Elite that came out way back in the 80's. Nothing groundbreaking here but the game is polished and fairly well-executed. BTW I LOVE these types of games and unlike FPS games the genre is not overcrowded. This is an iPad port, but the port is well done. I would have never guessed this game started out as on the iPad. the graphics are FANTASTIC. Not top of the line, but if the polygon count was a bit higher then the graphics would be on par with a modern AAA title. The space stations are a bit blocky, but the ship models look fine. Planets and background textures are fantastic, as are most of the special effects. Lighting is, for the most part, on par with Eve Online, X3, etc. * The ability to mine asteroids, trade, and run side missions is a welcome diversion from storyline quests. Storyline can be completed in only 6 hours or so. But, the sandbox play style extends the playability. Overall a nice diversion, but lack of difficulty makes the combat not as fun as Space Pirates and Zombies (SPAZ), although the graphics are much better, and the story and characters are slightly more developed.
