CAPSULE REVIEW: Galactic Arms Race

Galactic Arms Race is a 2D space sim featuring procedurally generated weapons. It's a neat idea, but it doesn't really deliver - most guns have very pretty effects but are not actually useful in combat. Dodging enemy fire and leading targets in frenetic space battles is always fun, but here it's wrapped in a generic quest system of the "Kill ten space pirates" variety and an overly complicated yet still shallow upgrade system. I'd rather play either a pure spacefighting game or a space sim where the rest of the experience has more depth and polish.
