  • Summary: Charting a bold new course, Malfador Machinations' Space Empires: Starfury takes players on a wild intergalactic ride through the Space Empires universe. An exhilarating science-fiction action RPG, players take on the role of a starship captain. Danger lurks in the cold void of space, but so does fabulous wealth and power. Will you get a chance to hang up your spacesuit and retire to a life of luxury or will your frozen carcass drift forevermore amongst the endless stars? Set in an ever-changing dynamic universe, Space Empires: Starfury has been influenced by such titles as Elite, Star Fleet Battles, and of course Space Empires. Commanding their very own vessel players can essentially decide on whatever type of game they want to play. Want to explore the universe? Become a universally known trader--or perhaps a universally feared pirate? Make money, make war, or make trouble, it's all up to you. [Shrapnel Games] Expand

  1. Sucked me deep into its colorful, action-packed gestalt. I plan to keep this game on my hard drive for a long, long time to come. [Mar 2004, p.72]
  2. It definitely packs some solid gameplay that sci-fi fans are sure to dig. [Feb 2004, p.76]
  3. It is a very good game. It’s just that it doesn’t bring anything revolutionary to the table.
  4. The gameplay is straightforward, but uninspired. The authors of the game tout how easily it is modded, which is a good thing, but not enough to create a sense that the game is breaking any new ground.
  5. Too bad Star Fury fails so spectacularly at creating the sense of moving a ship through space. [Feb 2004, p.80]
