Star wolves is a 3D space RPG with deep strategy and tactical elements. The game thrusts players into a world of freelance space hunters in the XXI-XXII century A.D. during a time of political crisis for the all-powerful Empire and the three mega-corporations that control all the known worlds. Corruption prospers planet-side and only space can give a man his freedom, but not without a cost: space is not a safe place anymore. Human space pirates, rogue AI computers that rebelled against humanity and empire patrol ships roam space in search of easy prey.
Players begin the game as a bounty hunter with little more than an old, run-down space fighter and a dream, but as they advance in the game and prosper, their piloting and battle skills improve, allowing access to more advance spacecraft. Players can control a party of up to six bounty hunters, each possessing different skills, abilities and personality.
Team tactics give players vast opportunities in battles when shear fire power isn't enough. Tactical ruses, planning and executing ambushes or deploying spaceships' special abilities provide cunning commanders the ability to crush enemies according to their style of play.

A Homeworld RPG - Good or Bad?Sciazs | Dec. 2, 2013 | See all Sciazs's reviews »
I bought this game on a sale with 0 expectations at all and I was pleasantly surprised. Some would say its a different IP remake of homeworld which isn't a criticism at all. That game was great. The game's graphics are great (don't let the screenshots fool you) and the dev team transformed this game from a Homeworld RTS to a Homeworld RPG. Awesome.
The game encompasses (the now standard) "ethics" aspect with the player given the choice between good and evil (or neutral). The musical score is reminiscent of the 90's gaming era which could be either good or bad depending on how you translate that for yourself. The downside to this game are the clumsily felt controls at times which affects your mood sometimes but once you're used to it, the game has much more to offer.
