It got shit on by reviewers but in a lot of ways I like it more than MGS.

Playing it right now, the only flaw is the lack of raise weapon button, this way aiming is wonky a bit

Help me remind a game bro.
Basically same as yours description, I played only demo long ago but demo started like this.

You climb some giant track with giant wheels and throw or shoot a dude and he falls over rail guard.
All the backgrounds were pre rendered 2D and wheel was animated.

It got bad reviews because it wasn't Moo2 style, apparently a mortal sin in a 4X. But it's really a brilliant strategy game, and it puts you in a sort of fleet commander or sector commander's chair. You don't order individual ships to fire individual guns, instead you set a formation and a range you try to get at, while your opponent does the same (both decisions made blind to your opponents decisions), actual range is determined by the relative value of the engines of the ships committed, and then your guys blast it out, with zero input on firing control.

Perhaps because it's simpler, the AI is far more competitive than within other strategy games.

It's fun, but either you'll be having a blast by the end of level 2, or you'll never want to touch it ever again.

>> No.4096001

Gave up during the first level, I didn't get the physics and pussed out. Loved the graphics though.

>> No.4096048

Come on anon, it's not that bad.

Point the direction you want to thrust, engage thrusters, remember you are falling down.
You need to turn shields off to pick shit up with tractor beam. You die FAST without shields. You can drop items to fight, then pick them back up, they remain where you dropped them in defiance of gravity.
If something is too heavy for your thrusters to handle, approach it at full speed from the opposite direction you want to go and hit the tractor as you pass, "jerking" it the way you want to go. This is big on high gravity planets.
Focus on flying the way you want to go, not on moving. Don't think of it as moving down a shaft, think of it as giving yourself a boost in the direction down that shaft, while keeping yourself ready to engage enemies. Momentum is real.

Still, it's a hard bitch and I wouldn't blame you for not getting past the second level.

>> No.4096201

Solar Jetman is my favorite game on the console, though I agree that the final boss is terrible. I recall that being an issue with several of Rare's games, actually. Snake Rattle n' Roll has an awful final boss, and the Dark Queen in Battletoads (NES) is trivially easy compared to the entire rest of the game.

It does take a bit of practice, but flying around and looting hostile alien worlds is really satisfying once you get the hang of it.

This is a dumb nitpick, but Rare didn't make Solar Jetman.

As we established yesterday, Vanark is closer to Star Fox than Omega Boost. The only time Omega Boost is on a rail is when you're going into the time warp tunnel or whatever but even then is mostly an obstacle course.

Dukes of Hazzard: Racing for Home. Kinda shitty graphics, creepy as fuck cutscenes with creepy as fuck CGI characters, and damn good driving physics. The cars feel like they have some weight in them and they have a very nice stiff controls. The cars handle like the cars in GTA IV, which I love.

Plot is meh, pretty standard Dukes of Hazzard stuff, but the gameplay is very enjoyable.
