nate_is_my_fake_name's Tachyon: The Fringe (PC) review

A pretty good space sim...

 ...made all the better by the fact that it doesn't seem to take itself too seriously. Bruce Campbell is the voice of the main character! Of course it isn't that serious.

The gameplay, though, is pretty good. The fighters are decently customizable, and the combat is fun and engaging. The story takes a turn at one particular mission, and you can't go back, so I recommend saving before that mission.

When it debuted, the game had multiplayer, but I don't know if it still does.

The graphics are pretty and colorful, and the sound effects are well done.

Now it's dated, but if you find this in the bargain bin, don't pass it up!
