*** Possibly justified, as they're not going for stealth, and you'll mostly be relying on radar anyway.

Project Sylpheed suffered mixed reviews, with critics citing cliche characters and predictable combat as detriments, as well as the fact that there is a hidden time limit on missions and that the persistently hard to see targets took away from the dogfighting experience by forcing the player to rely on instruments. Alternately, people praised it for being an accurate representation of a space shooter, containing distinctive characters, [[HeyItsThatVoice voice actors]], a deeper integration of gameplay and story, and an ''[[SceneryPorn extremely]]'' [[CoolStarship colourful]] [[{{Bishonen}} design]] ethic. While critically average, it did enough things right for enough people that it went platinum November 1st, 2007.

** Averted at the end with Katana and Margras. [[spoiler:Margras is screening Katana's run on the Prometheus Driver with his shields, but when they go down he refuses to let Katana take over ''despite the fact that shields can regenerate''. He does this because after he realizes he was partly responsible for destroying an entire planet in a fashion similar to Terra's destruction of his own, he lost any will to live beyond his goal of destroying that horrendous weapon. Margras ''[[FridgeBrilliance committed suicide]]''.]]

* OldSchoolDogfighting - Played straight sometimes, averted at others. You yaw, pitch, bank, and [[BuffySpeak stuff]], but some maneuvers allow you to do things that just wouldn't be possible on a planet. Like flying ''sideways''.

Added DiffLines:

* RammingAlwaysWorks: The level two ChargeAttack focuses your shields over your nose cone and supercharges your afterburners.

Added DiffLines:

* AlphaStrike: the level one ChargeAttack fires all three weapons systems all at once.
