Critic Reviews for Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut

The next gen space combat simulator now plays almost as good as it looks, even if there are still many more improvements needed.

The Director's Cut version of last year's Strike Suit Zero is periodically entertaining, but clogged up with too much repetition and an unconvincing Transformer ship gimmick.

If repetition isn't a problem for you, however, and you just want to blast-off into space and shoot down enemies by the bucketload, then this game is definitely something you should look into.

Strike Suit Zero is a solid space shooter that offers a well-crafted balance between arcade blasting and tactical challenge. Unless you're a fan of dog-fights and sci-fi, you're unlikely to give Born Ready's console port a second glance, but if you're after a user-friendly blaster with a decent lifespan and enough variety to stave off the tedium often inherent in the genre, then this comes heartily recommended.

Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut may not be for everyone, and if you suit up expecting a AAA budget game you might be disappointed. Looking past the surface, the combat is surprisingly deep and satisfying once you get the hang of the controls. With unlockables and 18 missions that range from 15-30 minutes each, there is a lot of game for $20 in a genre that has not yet found a foothold in the console market. Reminiscent of Wing Commander: Prophecy, Born Ready scratches an itch for those who love dog-fighting in space, regardless of realism.

While not perfect Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut is not a bad game at all.  Although it can get tough, and can seem repetitive at times, there are far worse games out there.  Those who are fans of space combat games can do no harm by checking out this game on the Xbox One, and those who haven't delved into the world of space combat to date should take a close look at this title too, as there is some fun to be had.
