Just about everything else
It is a beautiful game, and I love the graphics and the sound effects. What I don't like is that it doesn't have difficulty settings, and in mission 8, when you really need them the most, your missiles won't lock onto the ice chunks. I used to be in the navy, believe me, missiles lock onto ice. I believe the people who made this game, think everyone who plays games is 13 and has the hand eye coordination of a god. Alas I am 37 and those days are long past for me. <br> There is entirely too much going on and When I am playing I begin to feel battle stress. This is a game, not real life. It should be a challenge, not durn near impossible. I am very dissapointed in the game, especially since I searched high and low to find a store selling it at a price I could afford.
So far, no 2player mode, no tutorial its just a basic jump in ur viper and good luck, try not to get killed (even tho they supply a flight manual of sorts, a practice mode or even 2 player mode would be nice!) And really now..whats with this no save during missions crap? You play for 20 minutes, die then have to restart! I tell you the programmers just don't like us anymore..to make a great game then poop on us w/ lack of save points....
The controls take a lot of getting used too, however once you get the hang of them, its really a great game. Mind you I just got it this morning (11-27-03) and have managed to only get to the part on level one (part 4?) where u destroy the sheild generator then attack the big asteroid. This game although will take you some time to master (any aspects) is a nice addition to the consols, and a must have for any Battlestar Galacti...
