Starlancer has a variety of gameplay modes, besides just deathmatch.

Modes include the following:
-Asteroid Arena (deathmatch)
-Hunt the Shadow
-Tag Bomb
-Nuclear Threat
-Dark Reign

The dogfights are intense and some of the best dog fights I have ever had in game like this.

You can optionally turn on turrets which will sit attached to asteroids and shoot any player that comes into range. This increases the action, however can also increase potential lag. (not too much, just very slightly)

The only drawback to starlancer online mode is that there are no maps, just basically the environment you are put in to play each mode. Also the game has no end for the round. So basically it just goes on forever until people quit and start a new match, or when people have had their fill.

Starlancers online performance is superb though, allowing for a solid 6 player match with no lag, depending on who created the game. Usually when I host games I can host a 6 player game no problem, as I have a stable dialup connection. Some other users can only support a 4 or 5 player game. But, all in all the game performs superb online.

Also the chat room in the lobby is insanely small, but, once you get into the game, you can type full sentences and chat a lot better.
