Review # 4 for Silverwolf
Them's Fightin' Words
    An anomaly deteriorates your starship. You end up on an unfamiliar spacecraft, only to find out that Romulans are on board! "Where am I?" you wonder. Collecting items along the way, you prepare for a final battle against Gryi and the Romulans and win of course. Now you are in control...which planet would you like to visit first?

When you first open this game you'll say 'Oh God, another stupid fan game.' but oh how you are wrong. This game isn't one of those 3 minute demo games, it is actually well developed and gave me an hour or more of game time (testing too of course). First of all, the graphics were pretty good. They fit the game and only the Indian planet map was a little sloppy. The music fit the mood and wasn't too bad.

Now back to the storyline. I can't truly explain how interesting this storyline actually is. Not once did I get bored (except maybe during the slow pace battles, but I went into the editor to speed them up). Plus there was a pretty good originality factor.

This game was surely the best game I have rated so far. Are the scores biased? No, I'm not a fan of these intergalactic spacewars games, but this one was different. Quite a nice little change.
Final Scores
Graphics: 8.5/10.0
The title screen (later on) is a little simple, but it gets the point through. When you walk, the hair that moves back and forth in the front looks a wee bit freaky (wig?). Also, when your hero walks during battle his shoes change colors. (-1 for color bug, hair, and title...-.5 for sloppy indian planet map)
Storyline: 10/10.0
Pretty original actually.A few typos, but the plot is so well done that you never notice. (-.5 for typos, +.5 for originality)
Gameplay: 9.5/10.0
Heh, kind of a funny bug; the commander does the moonwalk into his chair (fixed by drawing an up pic for the commander). This is the first demo I've rated yet that has had credits, or even to have a point to need credits (not credits that say creator: me, music: me, art: me...etc). Slow, boring battles, but despite all this it's a VERY fun game once you get into it. (-1 for slow battles, +.5 for excitement)
Music: 8.5/10.0
All music was credited to its authors and fit the mood.
Overall Grade: A
Final Thoughts
    I highly reccommend playing this game, unless you don't like a highly developed plot, good gameplay, and good graphics.
