Rating Summary
This is a space-exploration game in which players assume the role of a planetary explorer on a quest to reach the center of the universe. From a first- or third-person perspective, players travel between systems to explore alien worlds for resources, to upgrade equipment, and to discover unique life forms. As players pilot spacecraft to different planets, they can engage in space combat against enemy ships and space pirates; combat is accompanied by laser fire and large explosions. While on the planet surface, players can use a variety of gun-like weapons and melee attacks to defeat alien creatures, human-like figures, and robots. Ground battles can be frenetic with frequent laser blasts, explosions, and screen-shaking effects. Players can also explore the interior of derelict ships, some of which are infested with parasitic creatures; some creatures emit large splatters of green blood when shot.
