    I must disagree with "Anonymous" in her/his assessment of Shattered Suns. The UI does its job quite nicely is not as byzantine as Anonymous would have you believe. The tutorial works very well in easing the user into the game. Camera control can be disorienting at first, but give it a few moments, experiment, and you will be zipping around the cosmos with ease.

The tutorial works very well in easing the user into the game. Camera control can be disorienting at first, but give it a few moments, experiment, and you will be zipping around the cosmos with ease. The innovations in this game are simply wonderful - especially the inclusion of orbital mechanics and how that relates to your strategy. Conventional RTS strategies will not be very helpful in this game. As the battlefield is constantly changing, the player must be able to adapt and anticipate to the enemies' strategies and tactics. You cannot "turtle" in this game nor can you "rush". You must strike a balance, and like all good battle simulations, you must constantly be aware of any opportunities that present themselves. As an artist, I would say that the ship models could use some tarting up. That being said, a good game requires solid game play. In this department, Shattered Suns delivers quite well. Clear Crown has demonstrated a willingness to listen to its customers and their support team have answered my queries promptly and graciously. If you are looking for an RTS that brings something new to the table, then you really owe it to yourself to give Shattered Suns a try. Expand

  1. Shattered Suns wastes its promise with terrible presentation values and poor implementation of its 3D combat system.
  2. If you enjoy RTS games and realize this is an indie title that has brought a new gameplay style to the table you possibly could enjoy it, but this is also the type of game that requires you to be forgiving for design choices, the campaign and its lack of modern looking graphics.
  3. Resource management is boring at the best of times, and, in Shattered Suns, it's a yawn-festival.
