QUASI-REVIEW: Battlestar Galactica Online

Feb 16, 2011

If you know me at all, I am a huge fan of Battlestar Galactica. I was late to the party on the series and started watching (from the beginning) just as the series was nearing it’s finale. I wish I had watched the show when it was originally on, I don’t know how I missed out on so long. It really is one of the best television series of all-time, and one of the best sci-fi series as well. The video-game counterparts of BSG haven’t been good. In 2003, there was a game for Xbox that was based on the original 1978 series. Then in 2007, there was an XBLA game that was based on the re-imagined series but did not sell or review well. Now, Bigpoint Games aims to please the Battlestar fans with their browser-based MMO: Battlestar Galactica Online which takes place in the back half of Season 2 of the series.
