Editors' Review

+
Fans of the original Asteroids will find this 3D interpretation plenty enjoyable, though the uninitiated may wonder what all the fuss is about. A gloomy ambience reigns in this game where you, lost in space, face hordes of asteroids and a smattering of interloping alien ships. Fortunately, the laws of physics are defied here, and you can hear the asteroids coming toward your ship and from which direction they're coming. The controls take a while to master, but you can assign new keys to give yourself a leg up. 3D Asteroids even allows saving profiles of control keys for several players. The gameplay becomes a bit monotonous, but whoever said war was a variety show? We especially recommend the game for folks who haven't forgotten the old good Asteroids.

    "Most annoying game ever..."

    July 13, 2007   |   By MacFheorais

    Version: 3D Asteroids 1.4

    Pros

    Never even got as far as the game, got bored trying to get past the compulsory flight training and gave up.

    Cons

    Okay, what the hell were these people thinking off??? You need to get through the mind numbing compulsory flight training before you are ALLOWED to play the game. Hello, we're not all retarded, it really doesn't look that hard, so why the 30 minute "flight training"??? I want to play a game, not fly a commercial airliner!

    Don't even bother downloading this muck....

    "Horrible controls"

    March 11, 2006   |   By mahzkrieg

    Version: 3D Asteroids 1.4

    Cons

    The controls alone negate any other positive qualities of the game. I actually gave it some time, but it's just so unnatural. I would have preferred a simple WASD+Mouse setup, but A, Z, Up, Down, Left, Right control Courtesian movement of the ship, and you have to hold Shift + Up, Down, Left, Right to face another direction. Even though after a sufficient learning curve, you happen to pick it up, it's just not the twitch controls an Asteroids game needs.

    Game breaking.

    "Not too good..."

    January 22, 2006   |   By Starwarskid

    Version: 3D Asteroids 1.4

    Cons

    Extremely difficult to control, sometimes a graphical glitch happens when you use the mouse, and really just not much fun.
