Personal review

Widely hailed as far better than the official new BSG game by Universal. This total conversion has been featured in The Escapist, Popular Science, Computer and Video Games, Macworld, PC Gamer UK, Pelit, Mikrobitti, and others. Winner of Mod DB's #1 Indie Game of the Year, Mod of the Year Award, and Best Independent Game award. Ships, sounds, weapons and even the voiceovers are top notch and just like being in the show.

BSG: BTRL is a standalone total conversion of Freespace 2 that lets you join the ranks of the Battlestar Pegasus Viper pilots in the events preceding the 15th episode, Scar. Train then battle the Cylons in your Mark VII Viper. There's also Mark II and Cylon Raiders to be flown. Multiple players can engage in Deathmatch and Team vs Team modes. Based on the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica TV show. Modified newtonian physics are employed to perfectly mimic the views and maneuvers seen on the show.
