New Space Game: The Wreckless

Oohhhh. spacey...

Thanks to scharmers over on Quarter to Three for pointing out an article on Rock, Paper Shotgun in which they talk about a new space game called The Wreckless. According to the website, the gameplay is reminiscent of “old school” space sims like TIE Fighter, but uses a FPS-like WASD control scheme, which sounds like Freelancer  to me (and that’s not a bad thing). I’ll add this to my review queue and let you know my thoughts in a little bit.

  1. From the developer graphics to the FPS controls, this is one space shooter that had better knock my socks off into the next galaxy for me to touch it.

  2. In today's world of no decent quality/price joysticks that I've run across, a space combat game with Freelancer-style controls would be reasonably welcomed if it's good enough otherwise. Though I'd still rather a game that justifies me finally taking the plunge on a solid joystick. :)

    1. You'll get no argument with me. I think Freespace is probably the one space "sim" — I think of it more as an RPG, but still — that got mouse controls right.

Chime In!
