    they were ready to go after NYRA, at the quarter pole, if Oscar’s horse had won! On the surface such a reaction to the $3i0a0-cl05mer’s possible upset of Slew O’ Gold made sense and was approprate to the confusion of the race’s first seven furlongs; but, pari-mutually, Shifty Sheik’s payouts for placing were not all that bad; some in the crowd thought he had a chance.To come up with a few of these details I reviewed the CBS-TV Youtube you linked. Didn’t John Hertler and Angel Cordero, Jr. look young in 1984? I guess we all did twenty-seven years ago….

    The game was a good game. Between 2008 – 2010 a lot of cheaters (most of them developers from others companies) introduced apps for each player play Dark Orbit 7/24 without the necessity of being on line. The app was used to collect a lot of boxes with prizes, hunt monsters and defend and run away when attacked by others players. The cheat app was so awesome that you could have Uridium a lot without spending any penny. The support was not able or competent to deal with players. The support (most of them little-minded and ordinary people) had a lot of power to decide you could have one more life on galaxy gates. It was usual you lost lives due delays and glitches in all platform full of wholes for competent web developers (more comment than the BigPoint staff) find new forms to cheat and have fun a lot. BigPoint is a mediocre company ruled by some kind of KaKistocracy trying to deal with their own problems a ten years. Its undeniable that the game graphics have improved but the Germany people from BigPoint sucks this outstanding game. You will not find any kind of justice if you was robbed or trapped by the support team with their mediocre corporatism of their employers defending their positions using all kind and sorts of lies.
    Find another honest game to play for free or spend your money. You will not change nothing on Dark Orbit.

    the game is fun but stronger players has a lot of fun to kill new players.. which make the game less attractive.. also not being in a “clan” grinding for credits can be pain in the ass.. killing the same monster and over and over because you can’t kill better monster just to get on points. also “auction” you can buy many usefull items for a lower cost than it should be. a lot of “memberships” benifits. this game is a pay to win but everything can be bough on the auction house so it take to the pve system …

    Here is an honest review of Dark Orbit from my perspective. This game was launched in late 2009 and it became vastly popular between the years 2009-2010 (when the game reached its pinnacle). The game is very simple yet very fun; its a spaceship sci-fi experience – you have to use a ship, equip it with weapons and equipment, destroy aliens and other players from other companies and farm alien experience and in-game currency. You can hunt other company players as a group. You can work together to take down bosses. You can create/join clans, form alliances in a real-time strategy browser game. There are three companies to choose from: Earth Industries Corporation (EIC), Venus Resources Unlimited (VRU) and Mars Mining Operations (MMO). There are players that are in the top leagues with the best equipment and ships in the game, including high level drones that accompany your ship wherever you go. Now, you may be asking, why did i mention that its most popular years was in 2009-2010? The answer is, the game back then was not so much a P2W system (Pay to win). Free players in a free browser game could actually become FE (Full elite – term for the best position) without having to spend excessive amounts of cash. Using your own money would just speed up the process, but there was nothing over-powered that would give you such a poor disadvantage. Now, in 2016, the graphics are much better, the detail of the space maps are brilliant and so are the animations. But prior to updates post 2014; the game has now turned into a massive P2W game. If you want to get anywhere, you are going to need to spend excessive amounts of cash to be in a ‘decent’ position. I’m not saying you don’t have to spend anything – but it will not be fun in the slightest and anyone will soon come to realise that all the new added weapons, ships and level upgrades in the game requires a lot of cash to be spent. The company, Bigpoint, no longer cares for the free players whom play solely for leisure and such as a fun game, the way it is meant to be. Bigpoint has now turned to the ‘wallet warriors’ (term for those who are willing to splash their cash to get the good stuff) interests and in their favour, keep them occupied with new toys. Which means that the free players are left behind. For those in a better position, of course it is fun for them, they are considered ‘decent’ or even ‘respected’. But I ask, what fun do we have as free players? When we are constantly getting destroyed by the UFE (Uber-Full Elite) players and we don’t stand a chance to defend ourselves. It simply takes the fun out of it. The developers have not fixed the game in terms of the functions for all types of players, the disproportionate cost of some items and the massive imbalance of free players to wallet warrior players. To evaluate this, I believe these reasons are the main causes for the exacerbation of decline in the total player-base. But, anyone can find fun out of playing this game, anyone can play this leisurely. But do not expect to be having ‘fun’ yourself at the top leagues unless you are willing to constantly pull out your wallet to make that happen. I would happily return to the game should they fix the severe gap between us free players and the wallet warrior players as well as the in-game shop’s items and accessories.

    i played this game back in 2008 it was a wonderful game with a very supportive and honourable player community… Now it is nothing but a pay to win bug ,glitch and lag infused game with a poiseneus player community full of rank hunters spawn killing new players…. WASTE OF TIME DO NOT PLAY

    This game was once enjoyable, now it is full of Bug’s and Glitches, on top of that the Developers of the game are not fixing them and introducing new assemblies and functions for the game that is already full of problems as if this was not enough the prices for already overpriced items has increased. You are more than welcomed to try to play this game for free but you will be lucky to get out of the port. I would suggest to give it about a year and maybe by then there won’t be any one on the maps so you will have them all to your self, DON’T PLAY THIS GAME !!!!

    also mein Review über das Game fällt sehr schlecht aus, es ist sehr Zeitaufwendig als Free to Play user, da man mit Payn vie viel viel mehr erreicht und die kleinen Spieler regel recht Dominiert um dort mitzuhalten könnten müsste man jeden tag 6-10h Farmen und das will denk ich mal keiner. An sich ist aber das Game vom Design sehr gut.
