Funny enough, Darkstar was just released for the 360. Both the original and new console versions are fun space sims with a simplistic economy system and dated graphics to boot. GOG price seems well worth it. I admit to buying this on the 360 for the whole nostalgia/couch factor. No regrets!

I'd buy Darkstar One...except I already own TWO COPIES OF IT :lol:

I own a retail one, and then inexplicably bought it from GOG already too :lol:

The Enemy Engaged sims (AvH & CvH) are more designed more for their particular niche market (but are good if you want to take the time to learn them). Darkstar One, IMO, can be easily enjoyed by the average gamer and looks good doing it.

Sale ends tonight.

Thanks, I ended up getting the 2 helicopter sims since I really liked them back in the day (Jane's Longbow).

All three of the Pro Pinball titles are really fun if you like pinball. I already had Timeshock from GOG so I'm going to go ahead and pick up the other two. Thanks OP!
