  1. A wonderfully addictive game, as well as a challenging new way to play strategy. Best yet, you can kick ALL of your friends' collective butts at the same time.
  2. The commraderie, exciting combat, and RPG elements make Shattered Galaxy an incredibly unique and addictive game, able to take parts from other strategy titles and turn them into something that feels completely fresh.
  3. Shattered Galaxy has the best advancement system I have seen in an RTS game so far and it really makes you want to keep playing.

    There's a lot of depth and fun to be had here as long as you can handle playing in a fairly unorganized manner.
  5. The ongoing and persistent nature of the game universe gives Shattered Galaxy something missing from most real-time strategy games, even those with superior technology.
  6. You may log off thinking wow we are kicking a lot of butt, just to find the next time you log on that the tide has changed and your team is pinned against the wall…Real Time at its best!!!
  7. Though the menu system can be awkward at times, and the tutorials need smoothing over, this is an excellent offering for a rookie release. [Nov 2001, p.128]

    A simple game to learn but has an underlying structure that is very complex (complex in a good way though).
  9. With no real item trading or online community to rival those of the online RPG's, Shattered Galaxy is more of a diversion than a full meal.
  10. Battles are almost always won by veteran troops – which means it all comes down to who’s willing to log in epic amounts of playtime. [Holiday 2001, p. 82]

    I played this game from Alpha - until about 2 years ago. I loved this game very very much. With that said, it did have some issues. UnitI played this game from Alpha - until about 2 years ago. I loved this game very very much. With that said, it did have some issues. Unit pathing would be the one that stands out the most. Second was if you didn't go out of your way to learn what everything in the game did, it a did a poor job of explaining it to you. Many new characters were turned off to this game because of a steep learning curve and lack of tool-tips to assist players in what each term and abbreviation meant. Another issue was the subscription fee, you were asked to pay 10$ a month when no new content was being developed. All those issues aside, this is a solid RPG/RTS/MMO. I loved the faction dynamics, the politics within each faction, overlord system. All good things. I wish'd and hoped for a very long time that Nexon would sell this game to a big time publisher to be remade, but I dont think it will ever happen. Full Review »

SG is the first MMORTS game on the net. For a free game, SG has good addicting gameplay to it. However, the graphics are old and the damage animation in the game is WAY too early. For example, if I was to hit you with a projectile, the projectile would have hit you regardless of it being in the air still. Anyways, cool free game. Try it out if you haven't already.
