House of the Dying Sun – Kick the wheels on your Starfighter
If I were ever to match a quote from a movie, that ties in the feel and environment of a game, the quote would be “Greetings Starfighter. You have been recruited by the Star League to defend the Frontier against Xur and the Kodan Armada.” Although this game is so much more, this sums up the feel and atmosphere it gives. You a *cough* older person that saw this movie as a kid, you will love this game. Re-watch the movie too and it is still fantastic. The House of the Dying Sun matches this. Although it is complete different in every way, you will still feel this is the closest thing to flying the Gunstar.
Also, please note that the gent to the left, played Grigg in The Last Starfighter, and the CEO of OmniCorp in Robocop, two completely different roles played beautifully. Where is his Oscar? Huh? No oscar? Proves the Oscars mean nothing and they are just a marketing and popularity gimmick.
Your piloting skills put to the test with your Starfighter in House of the Dying Sun.
Ever wanted to have your own Star-Fighter in the middle of a galactic war, with no Full Motion Videos starring Mark Hamill? Ever wanted Freespace 2 to expand and look fantastic, and have almost every aspect improved? Just a glimmer of what could be? Look no further than House of the Dying Sun. A game that is one of the top 10 games for VR. Track IR runs fantastic and immerses you in the combat. The sound of drums as you head into combat the same as Battlestar Galactica. Making it rain as it were!
If you like the idea of flying around in a Star-Fighter, helping the cause then grab this game. Although short, it is a game that needs to be played if you like star faring combat games. The developer really needs to expand on this premise, but they don’t have any plans. If this game could be made with a dynamic campaign and Different Star-Highers to control then it would be a massive success. But in the mean time, get the game and play it.

The Last Starfighter
As for the movie of The Last Starfighter. Rent or buy this movie NOW and watch it. The movie was well ahead of it’s time and still holds pretty strong today. But here is a treat for all you people that have watched the movie, loved it, grew up with it. Below is a link to download the game to play. The game is a fan version, but it gives chills which are multiplying. Download it, and hopefully it still works with Windows 10 and such. So many memories.
