Evochron Legends

Evochron Legends is a space flight simulator produced by one man production house Starwraith 3D Games. So far it’s been extremely entertaining, with one fatal flaw: the interface. There are three main displays in the cockpit of your fighter, one with your own ship’s information, another with the 3D map, and another with information on whatever you’ve targeted. It gets more confusing when you bring down the various consoles like the one for navigation, as shown below.

"This console lets you manage jump drive travel and system navigation in an easy-to-use interface."

Games like X-Wing, Free-Space, and Independence War have all had the same information, but have presented it in a much more effective way. Having said that however, as soon as you do learn the thing, the rest of the game is brilliant — an open ended world with lots to do, and it seems well worth the $25 cost of entry. You can download a 90 minute demo of the game here, and I’d encourage you to do so!
