Looks swell, but without Gyro control it has NONE of the immediacy and I'm really flying feel of 1 and 2.
I may be fickle, but I doubt if I'll last more than an hour without that immersion. I dislike D pad style controls and really miss the feel and flow of the first two plus extras. I'll throw money at this, but only if it feels like fun. Right now, not so much, I think

You kinda get used to it, if not into it.
The biggest problem though, is the navigation. With GOF2, you could fur ball through a sector, and still know which way was home.
Here, it is more confusing, even though it is more constrained. If I have to do another "fragment" mission, where I fly aimlessly though space junk while that drone doesn't have a clue, I am going to puke.

The concept of scavenging for stuff isn't bad at all, but at least let us blast some things and find materials to pick up, sell, etc.

Oh and by the way... Flying past rock spewing Glow without a mining laser makes me ask myself why I am here...

The game has so much potential but unfortunately nothing DS capitalized on. The devs that built GOF2 couldn't all have left could they?

Hey,

the feedback that many of you would like to have accelerometer based controls in the game has been passed on to the team. We will keep you posted about this.

After a couple of days, I'm getting accustomed to the directional pad, but it isn't smooth, and seems to get stuck to the left.

I appreciate the Nimbus controller on the Apple TV version. While it could work on the iPhone version, and I've used it for other games, it's a bit odd trying to find a place for the phone.

Hey,

the game for the Apple TV is not the same game as for iOS. These are two different games ;)
