If this 3D space epic is a shoot-em-up then Michelangelo was an interior decorator, but for all that trading and mining you can do there's still a cracking blast in here. You can shuttle between safe systems carrying legal cargoes if you want, but the only way you'll get that coveted deadly or elite ranking is by going out there and wrecking other ships. This isn't easy: the combat is 3D tactically as well as graphically, so marauding pirates can attack from any direction There's no up, no down, and absolutely no quarter. Kill the enemy, run for home or die in the process. Tough, cynical stuff that'll have the palms of your hands in a sweat. Graphics have come on a bit since the slowish wire frames of the 8-bit versions - the PC Elite is in solid 3D - but for deep-space dogfighting the game still gets top marks.
