Battlestations review, by Tom Vasel: "Fun Factor: If a player isn't scared away by the awesome hugeness of the game and the thick rulebook, they will most likely love the game. It's everything you've seen in almost every science fiction movie - in a game. The replayability is huge, and the game induces the sort of stories like 'Remember the time that Sam loaded himself in the missile, and fired himself at the enemy ship, and missed and hit the sun?', or 'remember when Bob the engineer was cornered by two aliens and killed both with one lucky throw of a grenade'. Games that leave stories like this are worth playing, worth getting involved with, and worth having fun in. "
