"A huge game just got better."

September 05, 2009  |  By theKaks

 |  Version: Oolite 1.73.2-test


This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I first noticed this game a couple of years back, and I really liked its classic approach to space trading & combat. It took me a little while to get to grips with the controls, but it was worth it.. A major plus for this game is the addition of expansion packs (called oxp on their wiki), which add oodles of atmosphere and gameplay.

One of them, system redux adds realistic looking planets to the game, and there's random hits which adds space bars, where various seedy characters offer contracts on some of their rivals, then there's one with a massive alien invasion, another one adds 20+ cool new ships to the game...

There's dozens of expansions, each one of them adding new details to the Oolite universe. At the moment I'm only using 30 or so, but that number is relentlessly going up, as I discover new oxp's I simply can't do without!

To cut a long story short, I love this game! :)

This version might have test written on it, but it's much more stable, has better graphics, and on top of that it's faster than 1.65.
