Star Wolves 3 - Ashes of Victory Review @ GameZone

GameZone has a review of the standalone Star Wolves 3 expansion, Ashes of Victory.  If you recall, a major re-working was promised but it doesn't seem like much has changed.  Their score is 3/5 and here's a snip:

Combat is a mixed bag. On one hand, it can get tactical assuming you have enough skills to actually utilize when under heavy fire. Pressing the Space Bar will pause the action letting you dole out commands to your ship and your squad, and also gives you some breathing time if the action gets too hectic to follow. Though most of the time you’ll find yourself just watching your tiny ships fly around in circles, exchanging shots with enemies and seeing whose health bar is dropping the fastest.

Star Wolves 3: Ashes of Victory should have included a lot of improvements and fixes over the original, but instead remains very much the same. This is one open space that is better left unexplored, and a Civil War that is best to stay out of.
