"*** IS WRORNG WITH THIS GAME"

March 29, 2013  |  By joeyishar

 |  Version: Dark Orbit 1.0

Pros

I played it before and it was great

Cons

almost everyone else who wrote a review was writing it for the online new version. they are all retards. this game does not work. I made it compatible with windows xp AND 2000 and it doesn't work. This resulted in me getting an error message stating the game doesn't recognize the command 'begin'. i fixed this by editing the programming and it didn't work. not worth it, dont bother, idk what is wrong with cnet but this download is crap.

"Don't spend money on this game, you'll regret it!!"

January 27, 2012  |  By BootsW

 |  Version: Dark Orbit 1.0

Pros

Wonderful community, fast paced action, and the ONLY game of its kind that I've found. It is really GREAT if you don't pay to play.

Cons

-ridiculously bad customer service
-the company sets out to cheat you if you spend money on the game
-customers do not matter
-if you fall victim to phishing or hacking they blame it on you and do NOTHING to help
-security in this game is a joke
-unpaid moderators and admins are made to take all the frustration by the customer base directed toward the company
-gambling by people under the age of 21 with virtual currency that can be earned for free or paid for
-this game is developing some serious addictive habbits in its customers

Summary

I love playing this game,but I've learned through years of experience with it that if you don't watch yourself you'll lose a LOT of money on it. I recommend that if you start playing and paying for this game you let everyone in your immediate family know and have them watch your spending habbits, because you won't see it until its to late and you've wasted a LOT of money.

"Very bad customer service."

July 18, 2011  |  By MortensGreie

 |  Version: Dark Orbit 1.0

Pros

Free if you don't decide to spend money for monopoly money

Cons

The worst customer service I've encountered. They made a small mistake which could have easily been fixed for no cost - but because they refused to fix it they lost a customer that had been spending around 100 euro in a week.

Summary

If you are out for a free game - it's pretty decent. But i would not invest ANY money there.

"Be very carefull before you join!"

April 02, 2010  |  By Vlado_BA_SK

 |  Version: Dark Orbit 1.0

Pros

Simple to play (old client), no installing necessary

Cons

For somebody (especially children) could be habit-forming. Ambiguous or faulty rules (you'll find later when playing). Rude administrators (especially CZ/SK). Often swear words and abuse in chat used (seen in CZ/SK). Instability/errors in GUI.

Summary

My experience with DO (by German BigPoint) is very bad.

Administrator can ban you from chat or user forum for more days without any warning or noticing just because of two letters in name e.g. (in my case BA= Bratislava) or for copying one Wikipedia page at user forum (30day ban) when arguing about that "BIG" should be added to The Rules, so users can recognize, it's a "crucial personal information", they cannot mention in chat (or 7days ban).

Administrators (CZ/SK) use sweard words in replies to users i.e. "an*l alpinism" or "as*-crawler", etc. If user asks to get any explanation of The Rules, admins sooner or later ignore him or block him on user's forum.

In chat (even in "prime-time" 8:00-11:00PM) is often a rude language, abuse and insulting seen. Children can join this "trash talk" without any problems.

Ambiguous or faulty rules are hard to find from the main screen (but you'll find game features easily). There're no list of penalties mentioned in The Rules, so it's a pure administrator's "free-style").

So if you're calm, asking nothing just paying for Uridium, everything is ok. But if you are at the top with ship equipment (no much further fees expected) or mention any technical problems with your ship in chat, troublesl begin (jeer, ban, blocking, ignoring...). So my advice is, be very carefull, if your consider to start with Dark Orbit!!!

"DARK ORBIT IS NOT SAFE"

December 31, 2009  |  By PORSCHE1960

 |  Version: Dark Orbit 1.0

Pros

A brillent game, but customer service is awful and not helpful

Cons

Their security is awful and customer service is even worst

Summary

the product itself is good but their security and customer service is awful and not truthful at all. however, On Christmad Day 2009 Dark Orbit got hacked, players lost their accounts and credit cards details, DO denied all responsibility, apparently one of their staff hacked and stolen the accounts some of them appear on Ebay. DO NOT PLAY you WILL LOSE EVERYTHING
