Strike Suit Zero's Directors Cut makes a slight improvement on the game's graphics and includes the Heroes of the Fleet DLC and two additional Strike Suits, one that was originally for Kickstarter supporters. Strike Suit Zero is an arcade like third person space shooter. As you complete missions you will gain access to additional ships and weapons but you will most likely be using the strike suit whenever you are able to choose, as you damage targets you can change into a more mech like form and fire auto targeting missiles as you dash around which will probably be your primary method of attack. With your constantly recharging shields and many of your attacks being auto aimed or automatic hits when fired in a certain area the combat just isn't usually that satisfying. Some missions can tend to drag on for too long, the scoring system that can determine your ending doesn't really make sense, and the bonus objective you need to fulfill for upgrades on each mission is usually annoying and gives you no indication for when you fail it. The Heroes of the Fleet DLC includes five additional missions and a new AI character. The new missions are actually more enjoyable than what is found in the base game and will give you more information about the game's conflict. If you don't already own the base game this is the best version to get.
Strike Suit Zero is a game that reminds me of Star Fox 64 but with Robots and a more sci-fi environment and that is the main reason why I bought it. Story is not that good but gameplay is quite fun and the length of the game is satisfying. If you like dog-fights in space with a balance of arcade shooting and tactical challenge I recommend this game but only if its on a sale and get the directors cut because it has all the DLC and improved graphics.
Do you love space shooters ? Do you like robots ? Then this is the game for you! It has nice story and fun combat. If you don't have previous i recommend to get this edition, because it includes all DLCs for original version and few new changes like new models and improved textures.
