Good start, laggy later
I enjoyed this game.
-Pros: If it's part of a series, that usually means someone likes it, and this game is likable for the most part. The gameplay is very relaxing and casual feeling...even the music has a trance like quality. This is great for sugar coating the repetitive gameplay that comes with large shooters like this. The sheer variety of bells and whistles in this game is astounding...especially for a flash game.
-Cons: My only major complaint about this game is the lag issues that arise later on. It's not just people complaining, it's a real issue. Once the 'healing rays' start showing up, the game seems to decide it's had enough and take a break for a while, freezing the screen while you take hits. I had a category 3 ship at one point until I ran into a field with two healers and the game froze up. I had my basic ship back after about 15 seconds of being frozen. It's things like that that drive players away.
-Suggestions: For the love of GOD remove the rays, or at least look into what's causing the horrendous lag when they show up. I have a great computer, and even in efficiency mode, the rays freeze the game, and come close to locking up my browser as well. This game should be completely flawless at this stage in the series. There's no reason something like that should be keeping it down.
*Since you supposedly update this game daily, I hope to see that issue fixed soon. I like this game and don't want to quit playing out of fear of healing rays.
