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.

At the end of the day, folks who enjoyed the original Strike Suit Zero may want to pick up Director's Cut, especially because upgrading on Steam is only a few bucks. Those who never got around to playing but have a particular affinity for space combat, missile-spewing mechs and loads of ship customization might also want to be pick up the game.

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.

There's no escaping the fact that Strike Suit Zero is a let-down, despite the promise of this enhanced edition. The Director's Cut has fixed issues with checkpointing and, in terms of content, is certainly a generous package on Switch, but the game never escapes the fact that its central conceit isn't satisfactorily delivered upon. With better mech controls and some more time and care put into delivering more varied missions this could have been a great little space combat game, but as it stands it's hard to recommend to anyone other than diehard space jockeys.

There's not much more to say other than Strike Suit Zero is a fun game that fans of anime and space sim games should check out.
