In the cold dark space of intergalactic action games, Galaxy on Fire 2 is the North Star.
Shining brightest in a constellation populated by dim games like Warpgate, it offers a point of reference from which the genre can chart a course forward.
Its gameplay burns slow and steady relative to instantly gratifying quick-fire space shooters, though the economic wheeling and dealing that cools its action also provides enormous depth.
Plenty of minor criticisms can be heaped on it, but in the grand scheme of things Galaxy on Fire 2 is an adventure that goes beyond where any iPhone and iPod touch game has gone before.
The stars are nearly aligned for Galaxy on Fire 2, a wonderfully varied, in-depth action-adventure game that could benefit from expanded combat controls
