Gryphon Posted July 25, 2000 Report Share Posted July 25, 2000 Hi all,Just got my hands on Red Storm's new space sim, "Bang! Gunship Elite" and I've got some quick commentary.If you've seen screenshots, you'll know this is a pretty title. It is, and it runs smoothly on my P-233 RivaTNT at 800x600 with the details turned up. Shocking.Whats interesting about this particular sim is its simplification. You've got targetting controls, a rocket booster, a shield option and your fire button. That's it. You can switch between weapons by hitting buttons 1-9, like an FPS.It's so hideously easy to learn it makes me twitch. After mastering all of Freespace's various targetting options and energy management controls, not to mention learning to run a Battlecruiser efficiently, Bang! seemed to almost mock everything in the genre that has come before it.Basically, if you like an arcade space shooter where little to no thought is required, pick up the demo. The eye candy is nice and multiplayer should be a romp.I'd love to hear what everyone else thinks of this title. Erik Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
