5.0 out of 5 stars Make sure it's what you want... May 15, 2003
Battlecruiser Millennium is a specialist game in the sense that you have to want to play it for it to be enjoyable. You start by choosing your name, sex, race, profession, asset (based on profession), gear (based on profession) and then go. Professions include star fighter pilot, capital spaceship commander, and marine. If you are a fighter pilot, you choose your fighter; if you are a capital ship commander, you choose your battlecruiser or carrier; you get the idea. There are campaigns that give you some structured missions but most go for the Roam option. Once you complete a campaign you revert to Roam in fact. The beauty of the game is that you are limited by your imagination. I say this because if you are a carrier commander you can jump into a fighter while your AI crew fights your carrier and attack your enemies in the fighter, land and jump into a shuttle and pick up some wreckage of your vanquished foe, pilot that shuttle to a planet, drive off the shuttle in your ground assault vehicle, head towards an enemy base where you dismount and lead your team of marines in for the final assault. Or you can do all this from the comfort of your command chair in your star ship with your red shirted ensign having all the fun. Or just fire your missiles from space (if you can afford them) and destroy the base that way. You are limited by your imagination and understanding of the controls. Yes, there are a lot of controls, but given everything you can do, what do you expect? Right now you will probably want to play as a fighting (military, police force, insurgent, etc) profession (caste) but with the multiplayer traders and others will be in high demand. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars I personally enjoy it, but it is a very specialized game December 28, 2004
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
There are a lot of people who play this game and hate it, and there is a reason for that. The nitch for this game is very narrow and people outside of its nitch will either be so frustrated with it that they give up, or simply outright hate it.

If you are thinking about this game you should understand that the game involves a lot of micromanagement. You WILL need to read the manual to do almost anything in the game, and there is a LOT to read up on. You end up managing almost every aspect of your craft when you play down to the individual assignments of your crew. Later on things get a little easier when your command staff get skilled enough to automatically have things done for you, but overall you will need to do everything that needs doing.

If you are not the type of person who is into this sort of micromanagement then stop reading this review right now. Nothing else I say will make this the game for you. Go look someplace else for something fun.

People who either enjoy or don't mind micromanagement may like this game, so here is the rest of the review:

Graphics:

They arn't anything to wow at, but the game is so massive that I get the impression that making them any better would cause the game to run slowly or crash. They are decent and look good unless compaired to the best we currently have available, and that is what matters.

Sound:

The sound is honestly a bit outdated. For some aspects reminds me of something you would hear in an older arcade type game.

Gameplay:

Gameplay is very involved. It is likely that you will spend a while learning how to do anything, and even some basic operations may take you a little bit to figure out how to do in a timely manner. Once you figure out how things work the control scheme begins to make sense and you will find that overall gameplay is seamless.

1.0 out of 5 stars much more work than fun November 19, 2005
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
After buying this and feeling the weight of the package I should have known that there was going a massive book explaning how to play the game.It is way too complicated to have fun without researching for hours. I blame myself for not looking at the reviews first for if I did I would have known not to buy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Seriously, Don't November 19, 2004
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, I cut my teeth playing Omnitrends Universe. Which was at the time of its release the most complicated, difficult to learn game in history. (also a totally amazing open ended space sim circa 1988). I would say that Battlecruiser follows very closely in that genera, a very indepth open ended space sim, built on technology .

So if you're into the genre, I mean really *into* it like willing to study and memorize the manual before you ever even install the game, willing to accept that the so called training missions are nothing of the sort (they are simply instant action missions where no one will kill you, they serve no educational purpose at all).

Still don't buy it.

Seriously. Because you will have problems, (I couldn't even get it to run for over 5 hours), and the president and CEO of 3000AD, (who also apparently is the head of tech support) is the rudest person I've ever had the displeasure to know. Instead of being helpful to people who are struggling to get this piece of 1990's circa technology to work .
I don't have a personal grudge, we've never spoken, but I encourage you to check out ([...] ) his forums to know what type of person you'll be dealing with if you ever have any kind of problem at all. The Man proudly flies this quote in his signature:
"Squirrels with very cold paws have less trouble getting into peanut
butter than the average uninitiated Homo Sapien has in getting into a
Battlecruiser game. - Tim Stone, PC Gamer UK #133 Review"

Seriously the only people who should be buying this game are parents who want their kids to stop playing games forever.
