Flying among the stars, fighting pirates, trading strange goods for fantastic sums of money: these are experiences hard to come by in most games, let alone real life. The few games that do allow for such activities are few and far between. Of those, you often hear people speaking of Elite with reverence, or perhaps of newer titles, like X3 or the arcady Darkstar One. Evochron Legends plays like all of these games and it plays like none of them. It's a game that works hard to provide an unprecedented level of freedom to its players, in a universe whose rules are far more exacting than the average space flight sim.For anyone who has played one of these space sims (or any of the more combat oriented titles like X-Wing or Wing Commander), the fact that space flight is much like airplane flight is a given.
