And then there is Galaxy Force...
If Afterburner was sometimes confusing due to it's graphic presentation, it was still a great playable game.
Now Galaxy Force, partially written by the same authors, suffers tremendously by it's graphic ambition. The game gets so messy that you don't even know what's happening let alone what you must do. Otherwise this could've been a good game if you could just dig it out from it's graphic clutter. Some things don't work in a Speccy and one of them is exactly mixing color and movement in 3D.
