While the story and characters grip you right out of the gate, the gameplay lacks some crucial elements, namely a combat tutorial, a manageable difficulty curve, and any supporting info that might give a rookie player a leg up. What passes for combat tutorial amounts to fighting 2 ships that don't fire back. After that the next story fight is called a boss fight where you are outnumbered and outgunned. Even a self-initiated fight has you dead-to-rights after the "tutorial." I died 6 times in the first hour of gameplay. That is not a difficulty curve, that's an excuse to charge your players extra money up front for a good enough ship that you don't die while you flail around trying to figure out how to avoid enemy fire (I still don't know if you can). It wouldn't be half as frustrating if you weren't penalized for every death. When you are destroyed, you are sent back to the last port you visited and fined for repairs, instead of loading your last save which would be exactly the same but without the death tax. Overall the barrier to entry is just too high no matter how pretty the game is.

More ships
It is a good game except it would be better if we could be able to build bigger fleets; and maybe there could be a function to convert parts to a different ship type so we don't end up selling our earned parts just to buy new ones for a new ship.
