sol feace? more like SOL FAECES!!!! LOL! ROFL! EXCLAMATION POINT!
In Sol Feace, you play the pilot of a small fighter craft developed as the last hope of humanity against overwhealming hordes of robots. Or something. Y'know, like The Matrix, except set in outer space and without being forced to see Keanu Reeves' cum face.
Straight off the bat, you'll notice two things. The first is that your "last hope of humanity" space craft is woefully underprepared for it's mission. Seriously, R&D guys, would some shields have gone amiss? Frankly, if our "last hope" craft can't survive one laser blast without exploding, we probably don't deserve to survive as a species.
The second is that Sol Feace is probably the most stupidly hard computer game you've ever played. This is not a game for namby pampies. It does not have an 'easy' mode. It has 'normal', and for the men, 'mania'. On normal mode, it is not unusual to find yourself shooting down a horde of flying robot cockroaches whilst dodgying giant robotic arms that lurch towards you menacingly, only to clear that and to have to fight something that has a copywrite-infringing resemblence to the ED-209 from Robocop. On a good day, I'll get to level 3. Mostly, I'll get about halfway through level 2.
I dunno what 'mania' mode is like, as I said previously it's for men.
However, just for the fact that I've had this game for 15 years and never completed it, I'm going to have to give this game a A-.
