Better than Moon Tycoon...Luckmuche | April 26, 2013 | See all Luckmuche's reviews »
If you knew attrocities of that horrible game which is Moon Tycoon, so you can probably find a little paradise in this game, just a little I said...
Visual effects are very encourageous but not totally moving yet...It's very dead in this game, there is not a good rythm of gameplay and "weather" environment, even if the screenshots are charming...
However, it's a correct simulation game, not the first or the last, it keeps his promises that's all...
Just a little last point, concerning gameplay feelings, it's a delight...especially with X360 controller, it's properly adjusted...

In this game you can feel a fantastic experience: a travel to the moon.
The gameplay is basically fly the lunar module from base to base without running out of fuel, transporting cargo or recovering it and landing without crashing, this isn't easy because the flying is very complex but once you learn to read the instrumentation you will be a master and then you can try the time trials and see the leaderboards.
Maybe the missions can be a bit repetitive but with this wonderful atmosphere and the realistic sound effects you need to try this game at least once.

GAMEPLAY: Unfortunately, I was not impressed with this game at all. Maybe it just wasn't for me, but the awkward controls and unfriendly camera(s) turned me away from enjoying just about anything in this game. At it's core, Lunar Flight is an update to Lunar Lander from the gaming days of yore. I could see this game's potential for those who enjoy a deep simulator with a steep learning curve. However, for anyone else, your money is better spent elsewhere.
VISUALS: The visuals in this game were relatively good. The graphics and models won't blow you away, by any means, but it does feel like a relatively new game. The cameras are a little stiff and hard to manage, and sometimes they don't convey the information you need as well as I'd like. The camera is really my biggest gripe with the visuals. Everything else is decent.
SOUND: The sound effects in this game really lend themselves well to this game - all fit perfectly. For me, this was one of the strongest aspects to this game. There isn't much in the way of music, but that's okay. Rocketing around the moon doesn't really need music. Instead, this game has a lot of ambient sounds over the radio system in your little lander. It works.
OVERALL: This game was not enjoyable at all, for me. However, all is not lost. If you really enjoy simulation games and don't mind the learning curve, then this game may be for you! Definitely watch a few videos before picking this one up, and if you're the impatient type, avoid it entirely.
