Growing up I guess I could have been considered a casual PC gamer, I played a fair amount of titles, but not really that many all things considered, and star control 1 and 2 passes me right over. I remember playing Star Control 3, and being fascinated by the story and even the combat, I thought it was a great game, but whenever I hear anyone talk about the Star Control series, they always mention Star Control 2. I tried playing SC2 now, and it seemed ok, but the production values weren't anywhere near what they were in SC3. So was SC2 really that much better? Should I have been playing that instead?

From what I can remember, to longtime fans it did. It was made by a different developer who apparently didn't handle the continuity with the previous series storywise or mechanics-wise as well as they could have.Kind of like what happened with Soldier of Fortune: Payback. What a slap in the face that was to fans that remember SoF 1 and 2 on the PCs.
