Space combat games are among some of the most popular genres around. As PC and console technology advanced at great speeds, developers were able put together more realistic environments and a believable atmosphere. Colony Wars, released both on PC and PlayStation showed the capabilities of such formats. I-War is new for PC, and set out to be another memorable title within the space combat genre. But can I-War live up to gamer’s expectations?
I-War initially gives you two options of play. Instant access gives you the chance to participate in space wars without the harsh story line and a huge list of objectives. Great, if you have a spare half-hour. Those of you with a little more time and patience can sit back and get stuck into I-War’s rosta mode. Before beginning rosta mode, you will be forced to take on a training mission. The necessity of this mission will quickly become apparent when you get into the game proper.
I-War doesn’t have any outstanding assets, but fans of Star Trek, Babylon 5, or any other space adventure, will no doubt bump into this little title.
