Space games are rapidly filling up the market. It seems like one comes out every month. Although each one has a different design and unique features, very rarely do they match the type of gameplay that Rebel Galaxy Outlaw offers.

This Western-themed space simulator title is a prequel to Rebel Galaxy, which came out in 2015. Double Damage Games put a lot of effort into making the necessary adjustments compared to the original, and for the most part, it’s a fun time.

There are many great aspects of this game. Let’s start off talking about the spacecrafts. You’ll have a bevvy of options to choose from, with each having unique attributes. Throughout your time with this game, you’ll eventually find something that suits your preferences.

In terms of flight, controlling a spacecraft inside the cockpit can be a bit difficult. Your field of vision is pretty narrow, and it seems like enemies fly up out of nowhere. It’s when you switch to the third-person perspective when Rebel Galaxy Outlaw really shines. The flight mechanics are so smooth thanks to the camera setup. You feel like a total pro and ready for whatever enemy comes at you.

The dogfighting is one of this game’s shining features. Taking down enemy ship after enemy ship never ceases to be fun. There is a little bit of a learning curve at first, but after a couple of hours, you’ll get accustomed to the flight mechanics and controls.

It should be noted that at first, you’ll take on a lot of mundane tasks. Their rewards aren’t that great either. In a sense, you have to do a lot of grinding. However, if you stick with this game, you’ll come across some epic missions that pit you against some serious firepower. The later portion of the game certainly is worth the wait. Until then, you’ll just have to blast your way through various missions.

Another unique aspect of this game is the music you can listen to in the background. It sets the tempo for each epic battle and makes action sequences even more intense. It’s the smaller details like music that make this space game one of the more well-rounded titles you can find on the market today.

If you’re hoping to get your hands on this title, it’s currently out now. It will be coming to Steam later in the year as well. It certainly will leave a lasting impression.
