    Ascaron's latest space game, Dark Star One, is attempting to revitalise a dying genre. We checked it out to see if it was anywhere near as good as the legendary 'Elite'.

    Quote: "The resulting space battles that occur end up with you trying to keep your craft positioned in the blind spot of the enemy. It becomes a constant game of cat and mouse, just as any good dog fight should be (cat + mouse = dog apparently). However, the computer AI, especially in a one on one situation, is pretty much spot on. They will attempt Top Gun like manouevres slamming the brakes on so you fly over the top and all other manner of in flight tricks."
