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.
