pc.ign.com's take on SL is from the point of view that we are in the middle of a resurgence in the space sim genre. Too little too late for us at the moment perhaps, but it does seem like there's been a notable space sim coming out every month or two for quite a while now. Anyhow, they give the game a 9.2 and have a whole ton of archived pictures and other media. There's also a very simple opinion poll on the page. More reviews should have that. You can find this one here.
There's no thrill quite like this.. chasing down an enemy ship and blowing the ever loving crap out of him.
