    As it exists now, however, Solar 2 is a simple space physics simulation with just a hint of a game, and building disposable arrangements of revolving circles quickly loses its novelty. [Oct 2011, p.79]

    A beautiful game, with a very nice soundtrack. Though it may become boring after a while, it is a great time waster which you can pick up at any moment. Full Review »

    As others have mentioned, this is a VERY short game with very little variation. Is it fun? Yes, for a while. After that, you feel that you've done it all before. There are different "missions" that you can try to accomplish, but they're your basic Fedex variety quest. After a couple of these, you just want to tell god to buzz off and let you run this universe as you please. Which, of course, you can't because by the time you have a bit of power, the game is over. If I had to compare this game to another, it would be to Spore's cell phase: you start small, you grow, you eat things that previously ate you, lather, rince, repeat until you're too big, and then bye, bye!

    Quite nice game. Very short and after a while there isn't much to do but you can kill time with this one amazingly easy. Just fly around as hunk of rock. There is always room for getting achievements done too if you are that type of the person. Just don't expect any revolution. Full Review »
