Your team are the trailblazers for the first wave of Free Space Pioneers exploring a newly discovered alien planet. While searching the hostile world for alien technology you lead your team into tactical combat against pirates, alien creatures and the troops of the Imperial Consortium. Set up outposts and dig sites to exploit the secrets that this new world holds, in order stand against the incoming invasion. Everything is out there for the taking, but nothing will come free.
As a fan of turn-based tactics I can only recommend the game. However, compared to its role model XCom, it is very much behind. Especially in the areas of graphics, effects, interface and control (i. e. in everything). I still enjoy it. However, I can overlook these shortcomings. After all, they don't demand the world for the game. With the starting price one should not expect evenly also too much. Everything has already been said about the speakers in the game. I guess only gallows humor will help. :-D
