Better than I was expecting.Aug 20, 2012
By Amazon Customer Given how few stars there are for this game and how many people complained of issues getting it to run I wasn't expecting much. But I gave it a go and guess what it's not a bad game. I've only played for about 3 days now but not a single game crash, no lag, and no browser issues at all. Don't know why others seem to have problems it runs smooth as silk on the most recent vanilla version of firefox. I'm glad I didn't pay attention to the bad ratings and gave it a shot. The game runs perfectly fine don't let someone else's incompetence in properly setting up their web browser scare you away after all it's not exactly rocket science.
That being said this game is a bit slow on the story side of things and isn't the most entertaining browser game I've played. The graphics are great, the game mechanics are smooth, and the concept is spot on. This game has a lot of potential that hasn't yet been realized. There is so much more they can do with the game I'm looking forward to seeing where they go from here.

Fun and FreeJul 22, 2012
By April Dickerson
This game is actually really fun. As you explore the Battlestar you run into familiar characters from the show and receive objectives to complete. You even fly your own ship and shoot down frakin' toasters. They have a weekly "thrace thursday" It is not buggy as previous user posted. It is a free game you play in a web browser so naturally it isn't jaw dropping HD, but very well developed for it's type. If you're having issues running it, you should probably check your browser/computer for bugs as that's probably where the problem is coming from... not the game itself. So Say We All.

Super LaggyJul 07, 2013
By D. Fritsch This game is unplayable. I could not complete the tutorial. I was a beta tester for this game several years ago and I could tell then that it was not going to be a good game, even for free.

Spend to win, but don't expect contentApr 22, 2013
By Paul Golightly Fundamentally, this game has a fun game mechanic. I especially enjoy flying the Strike-class ships. The speed and maneuverability can make for some very enjoyable combat. And until about level 20 or so, you can always find NPC's to harass that are strong enough to give you a challenge. However, there's little to do in this game but PVP.
The good thing about this is that you can PVP almost everywhere on the map. Teamwork makes a difference, and you can make a useful contribution to PVP at relatively low levels. Not a decisive contribution, but a useful one. It also means certain places are very dangerous. It also means situations can tip in the blink of an eye. Other positives include graphics and the awesome "slide" function that you can use to do a 180 (like in the show) and shoot at someone following you.
However, the game is lacking not just traditional PVE content (questing, etc.), but a lot of the variety that makes PVP interesting. In PVP battles, for example, guns dominate everything else. You can technically play other roles, but there's little strategy beyond hitting the enemy with brute force. Although there are aspects of the game that suggest some inspiration from EVE Online, it's clear the makers of this game don't really know how to create the variety that continues to make EVE interesting. For example, you may specialize in one of the three overall roles (small, medium, or large ships, essentially), but there aren't really any meaningful roles to specialize into beyond that. You can work some electronic warfare, but the ships with more guns will almost always come out on top. And the electronic warfare you can do is very limited. There's no discussion of assembling a squad for a particular purpose, or of trying to flank an enemy or infiltrate behind enemy lines. And holding more sectors doesn't make it any more difficult to keep holding them, so at any given time of day one side will almost always be dominating the map.
PVP also lacks motivation because there are two and only two sides. Player-created content is meaningless, because there can't be alliances or conflicts other than the base conflict between cylons and humans. In other words, this is Planetside, in space, with only two sides instead of three, minimal role specialization, and a very strong pay-to-win element.
Oh, I haven't mentioned the pay-to-win element? "Cubits" are a form of in-game currency that can be purchased with real money, or be acquired by selling water mined in-game. Of course, this means any substantial supply of water in-game is highly contentious and is often held by someone high-level (you can buy boosters to level up much faster) and/or who can deal more damage (you can buy ammo that gives you up to a +30% damage bonus). And the best ships in-game require thousands of cubits to buy as well. So you can spend a few months mining little asteroids, accumulating cubits that you can spend to give you a tiny advantage. But the only people who are really getting an advantage from cubits are the ones buying them with real money. For a game with as little content as this one, I'd rather not waste all my time picking at rocks.
It's free to play, so there's very little to lose by trying it out. Unfortunately, there's also very little to gain.
