In a faraway future, mankind has established their empire in space.
The Empire, however, has become a harbo(u)r of oppression in the
course of time. And thus it comes that a rebel group incites riots
on planet Gallonigher. These riots eventually result in a declaration
of independence. The empire, however, doesn´t like this, at all. This
is how it comes to a struggle for independence, for freedom. You, how
else can it be, take over the part of a pilot who is a member of the
independence movement. It is the goal to fight your way through to Earth,
the home planet, and to face the Imperial ship in a final battle...
Shooter games with a well-written plot can only scarcely be seen. Excellent graphics and a good handling of the space fighters are added to it. However, I must admit that some of the battles are almost unfair; especially the final battle can actually not be won, unless you cheat. Despite this flaw, however, Colony Wars makes a good impression.
