Hadn't played any space shooters in quite awhile before picking this one up. Did manage to miss it on original release back in the day.
Excellent basic ingredients: good controls, HUD can be customised, nice ship & weapon designs. Missions are nice and variable, although sometimes events forced by scripting are somewhat annoying as they railroad the plot along no matter how you fly. The plot itself is engaging, although the generic wingmen lessen the immersion. It's pretty hard to care whether that faceless bunch of cannon fodder lives or dies... Campaign ends on a real high note as the final mission is pure gold.
On the downside, the graphics are a bit crude by modern standards, especially the capital ships up close. Hard to think of anything else.
