Despite the obvious bland spaceflight combat, I have no clue what to expect from this game. I reckon that's probably best...

No forced cockpit view in game like this is a HUGE fail.

I'm going to be completly honest and blunt, the character animations is crap but decent for a free browser game I guess, the combat looks decent also but it's going to suck royally if they don't put an optional cockpit view in.

For a browser game... it is decent.

If it were a MMO... subpar and irresponsible.

But we will see how it goes.

I don't know about this one at all. The thing that made Battlestar Galactica a massive return hit was the outstanding character depth and development on the show. There is no way to capture this in the game. Space battles in the series were simply a backdrop to the deep storylines.

I am usually open minded but I don't see this one working. BG would have been better as a deep story single player adventure/ Action game (Like something Bioware would do).

Have I suddenly gone back in time to the year two-thousand. Because those graphics look so outdated. I guess it's a side effect of making it a browser game.

Sad, they could have done so much more if they had gone down the MMORPG path.

This is a browser game, for you guys screaming about the graphics, you will not see it here. Other than that, not half bad. Shows that browser games are finally taking a step into a more 3d area instead of 2D and text.

Why is a browser game considered an MMO? why is this game even on this site?

Eh not bad for a first release, will have to see what the future brings, sadly I am like others thou, browser based? Eh, sceptical. HUGE fan of the series and it brings back memories watching this trailer , but again, "eh" not bad for first vid. Hope it gets better.

Having actually "played" this game.  They make the space combat look 10x better than it actually is.

It's a browser game, I don't think anything else really needs to be said.

IMO I just dont see this game lasting. Great show but my bet it does not convert well to an MMO. Really if you play a cylon what are you gona do? Raid Galatica over and over? Yawn

Looks like Eternal silence (Half Life 2 Mod) with Battlestar Galactica skins. A professional team should be able to do so much more, especially with an established franchise.

It's still being developed for one thing. Secondly, I seriously doubt anyone here has the money or skill to do better, and thirdly, the space combat looks a lot better than the "rail" crud SWTOR is pushing.

Another great IP that has the perfect setup for an MMO environment, but is trashed by an imcompetent developer.

PLayed through the BETA, dull game play. Fun for 10 minutes then dull dull dull. It could have had potential, but then you see the rather large CASH SHOP sign that players can access.

So... Have fun as players buy XP, reduce training time and generally leave non payers behind.

As usual, the Free To Play market is a giant con fest

People complainin that it's browser should really read up on the power of the unity engine, I've dev'ed with it and let me tell you this. This beats alot of engines out there.

 

As player of this specific game it's quite good and quite fund.

@Tivian   yea its concidered an mmo because it is actually an mmo. for one to understand what an mmo is all you have to do is play eve. 

 

mmo means lots of players in one server one game with lots of other players in the same persistant world galaxy being able to play with each other or side by side.

 

bsg does exactly this. granted its a browser game, but it is an mmog none the less.

 

mmog means online massively multiplayer game, not  online subscription based game on private servers ;) might wanna do some research into what mmo means buddy before you go round saying mmos are not mmo's.

 

how ever if you take games such as the new swtor. now that game struggles to be classified as an mmog. reason is you can play the game solo useing the companions system to get through the content. that essentially removes the multi play aspect from the game. meaning the game being concidered an mmo is all essence a miss clasification.

swtor as far as i can see doesnt appear to be an mmo at all but more of an online kotor experience with instanced pvp zones.  something along the lines of a multi player shoot em up. halo reach, but with the option for single player story content.

 

 hope this highlights the obvious diffrences between mmo and not mmo ;) always happy to point out the obvious :P

 

bsg mmog (broswer game)

swtor mog (sigle player starwars experience with option for multi play pvp)  mog = multi player online game.  not how their is no massive in that classification.

 

when people say massive it doesnt mean the game is massive. it means their is a massive amount of players that multi play online in a game. mmog !!! get it ?

 

eve = mmog

swg = mmog

swtor =mog (note the missing "M" )

bsg = mmog - browser based.

 

so yea to cut along story short bsg is indeed an mmog.
