    Drox Operative has a solid base and an incredibly advanced AI at its heart. It basically ticks all the boxes for the genre, but the later level grinding will suck your soul dry, leaving all but the most hardcore of players wanting something more.

    All in all, I enjoyed Drox Operative. It’s a niche game, certainly – graphically bland with some intriguing gameplay that situates itself somewhere between a realtime strategy game and a roguelike style RPG, offering a whole lot of replay value to those who end up getting into the game.

    Drox Operative is an absolutely unique game. There is nothing quite like it out there and if you are looking for that new experience, you are guaranteed to find it here.

    Drox Operative shows that innovation in the genre doesn't have to be limited to twiddling around with how skill trees work, or crafting the perfect loot drop percentage; it can also be about introducing smart mechanics that give a renewed sense of consequence and purpose to a player's actions. If you can get beyond some rough edges, you'll find an aRPG quite unlike any other.

    Drox Operative is an interesting experiment that blends hack & slash and 4X genres. The result could have been deeper but it's fresh enough to deliver hours of fun.

    A conflicting mash of awesome and awful, with awesome maybe just edging out on top. [March 2013, p.92]

    Drox Operative is something entirely different from its peers among whom I'd count Diablo, Torchlight, Path of Exile, and Titan Quest. It's something familiar and it's something bewilderingly new.

    It takes Depths of Peril formula and twists it for space combat and other improvements over original DoP.
    TBH, althugh Drox Operative is a
    perfect fun game, for me it lacks a bit of personality, specially if you come from DoP. Full Review »

    this is very ambitious title. many reviewer say this is Diablo sytle' game, but i don't agree.
    i would call this game as God style game
    rather than diablo like.
    you can operate the each races destiny by your hand.
    several races are trying to be ruler of the space. what you do?

    do you want your favorite race to be the ruler? yes you can help them.
    do you think human's smiling face is soooo annoying? then you can destory them.
    do you want to be a John Lennon? yes you can be. make a peace between races.
    do you want to be like a demon yes you can be, kill them all.
