A great sequel to the classic that spawned the entire space exploration/adventure genre, StarFlight 2 improves upon its predecessor in every respect, with better graphics and more of everything: star systems, alien races, and – of course – alien artifacts. The plot continues where Starflight left off: the Spemins, weak underlings when we last met them, are now a superpower race bent on conquering the universe. As starship captain, your mission objective is to find the souce of the fuel substance known as Shyneumand, and acquire the technology the Spemin mysteriously discovered that turned them almost overnight from whipping boys to galactic menace. Only then can their aggression be stopped and peace return to the galaxy.

Starflight 2 follows firmly in the footsteps of its predecessor. But taking the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy is definitely not a bad thing in this case. Like Starflight, there's a fascinating plot that slowly builds to an exciting climax after a cliché start. The aliens are much more varied and hilarious this time around, and the (appropriately) dark universe of Starflight has been replaced this time with a more dynamic one full of life and exciting mysteries. Additional features such as time travel makes the gameplay even more varied than it was in the first game.

In short, if you love Starflight, Starflight 2 is simply a must-have. It may not be as revolutionary as its venerable predecessor, but all the additions make it a worthy sequel in every respect, and a no less addictive game. Be prepared to spend countless sleepless nights with this one :) Two thumbs up, way up!
