Storyline

You are Captain John O'Neil, awakening from suspended animation aboard a battle damaged starship on a lost mission. You've been asleep for over 300 years, a period of time that exceeds the design capabilities of the ship's cryogenic equipment. Though physically unharmed, you suffer from a complete loss of memory. O'Neil must explore the starship, and find clues as to who he is and complete the mission. He will soon discover he is not alone, and that his ship, the Westwick, has a crew of three others. The beautiful pilot, Paige Palmer, is still in hibernation. One sleep chamber is empty, it's inhabitant, First Officer Ross Perryman is missing, and one of the ship's two shuttles is gone. And ship's navigator Alan Burk lies dead in the last chamber, glass shattered with his right hand severed and missing. Throughout the ship you notice "Bio-Loks" that require a hand print ID to open certain areas of the ship. You surmise that someone with inadequate clearance has attempted to use the ...

I'm shocked how many people out there surf IMDb and gaming sites fancying themselves reviewers taking it upon themselves to completely and thoroughly trash a project as being unworthy of viewing when they are aware that many do indeed like and enjoy the project. It comes down to the ridiculously simple concept that some people like this, some people like that — it's human nature. It's even more mystifying when the amateur reviewer flames something they've not even seen yet.

DARKSTAR has fallen prey to a lot of angry, mean-spirited amateur writers that admit they don't like the genre to begin with, coming to the project they already know they're going to hate bringing with them their biases they then proceed to use to dismantle the thing piece by piece. They then proceed to criticize anyone who enjoys the project because THEY are supposedly biased "fan-boys". So the idea is that anyone who likes a project is a biased fan-boy, and the hateful "critic" is presented as intelligent and unbiased, all in a forum that is controlled by those who position themselves as one who knows what is relevant, good, and should be given credence.

A great example of this. A big fan of Garth Brooks goes on a Metallica fan site complaining of the monotone growls of James Hetfield and the cacophony of guitars and drums drowning out any possibility of hearing the slide guitar or banjos. And not one of them has a hat or large, chrome belt buckle.

I'm astounded the ignorance of those who hate, and even worse, decide it is their mission to destroy art with their anonymous and cowardly words on the internet. Get a life, and leave it to Roger Ebert, he's still alive and kicking and we don't need anti-fan-boys, we really don't. Most of us can afford to buy a game or movie and decide for ourselves — you're not saving us by warning us from spending twenty or thirty bucks, thanks for trying though. Most of us can afford to make up our own minds.

On the other hand, it takes creativity, intelligence and knowledge of a genre to write a decent review or do a good interview. Below are some sites that show examples of such a review that pertain to DARKSTAR, and not every comment is a glowing testimonial, but instead intelligent observations from writers that realize that people have different tastes in things.

Ultimately, you should decide for yourself. First and foremost, don't buy it if you hate the Adventure Game genre. And if I have to tell you that, you should not be allowed to have a credit card to begin with.
