Now go to youtube and watch other people play this game ”Line of Defence”.
By all means go and try it your self on Steam.
But whatever you do: DO NOT PAY anything for it. I mean it!

Now, as a game ”Line of defence” is horrible. Poor graphics, very poor sound design and
abysmal game play. What is worse is the fact that non of this is due to a try to make a
retro game. No this is ”The shit” as Derek Smart see things.

The image above states ”The definitive space & planetary combat MMO”.
This is a lie. It is false marketing. Lets be honest: it is bullshit on a royal level.

”Line of Defence” is as far from ’definitive’ as I’m from being ”The Hulk”.
In fact all of Derek Smarts game are not even remotly definitive since he keeps doing
the same game over and over again. Granted, with smaller variations. But still you
can see them for what they are: clones. Not exact clones. But still clones.

Also, the MMO part of the game is non-existant. I’m guessing that Derek Smarts
definition of MMO (not to mention ’definitive&rsquoWinking are rather different compared to everybody elses.

This is false marketing. But then again, so is basically all of Derek Smarts games.

They sound good on paper. Really good. Alot of promises and inspirational words.
But when it comes to reality it all dissapears into thin air.

The only people who likes Derek Smart games is Derek Smart and those he managed to fool.
I’m saying this as one who purchased several of his earlier titles. Yes I’m that gullable sometimes.

For the life of me I do not understand why this person thinks he is the paragon of game quality.
Why does he think he knows anything about Star Citizen? Why does he think he represent us other
kickstarters? Why does he try to sabotage the whole project and by doing so claiming to be correct?

I’ve said it at different places:

Derek Smart is a hack.
One single minute of any Star Citizen modules (even in their current state)
is better than his whole career. On ALL levels!
Not only Star Citizen. I’ve plenty of games 20-30 years older which
for all practial and fun purposes are better and more well crafted.
He knows it. But he would never ever, ever say so openly.
