The story puts gamers on a colony transport ship that suddenly gets trapped inside a Black Nebula, but thatâ??s only their first problem. While trapped, they get boarded by aliens that take over the ship and begin to kill and eat the colonists. Playing the role of a tough, gristled ex-military man, gamers will struggle to reach an emergency transport module at the far end of the ship to free the remaining colonists, hacking and slashing their way through hordes of alien creatures along the way.

  1. The old-school gameplay aesthetics combined with the rich visual style make for a winning combination in my book and despite the minor issues, the game is ridiculously addictive.
  2. Space Hack brings the hack-and-slash genre back to its roots. There is never a dull moment as the character hacks, slashes, and shoots his way through alien hordes while trying to save the colonists living on the ship.
  3. A good first effort from Rebelmind Games that is worth every cent of the twenty bucks it will cost you - but not much more.
  4. If anything, it has to be respected for being a filtered and extremely direct version of the Diablo-in-space formula. It may not be great or awe-inspiring, but when you need to hit things for pleasure, there it is.
  5. A game that solidly hits its clone-ish objectives but seldom elevates itself to anything more than a fun-and-frantic, click-y time killer. [Feb 2006, p.65]
  6. A game that, wile not cutting-edge, is simply fun to play... A great game for the money. [Feb 2006, p.86]
  7. Like a bad sci-fi version of "Diablo" or "Diablo 2" set in outer space. Unless you’re dying to spend hours on a Diablo throwback, it’s likely that you will think of Space Hack as just another hack and slash RPG arriving on the shelves a few years too late.

    I was reading the comment about the guy who wrote a 2 for this game and I couldn't help it but to laugh! In his own words, he said thisI was reading the comment about the guy who wrote a 2 for this game and I couldn't help it but to laugh! In his own words, he said this game was like Diablo, but in his review, he said it's nothing like Diablo, in terms of how he tried to compared the two games.
    Any ways, i gave this game a 10 because it is different from Diablo. Yes, all Hack n Slash game nowadays uses Diablo style, but this game give you a spacey feeling when you are playing. The graphic is good the sound is decent, the game play, probably more than 100+ hours if you play it to the end.
    You just have to try it yourself. Dont let people scare you off a decent game because you see a 2 in his review. Maybe that guy don't like Alien shooting games. I love them :) Just like StarCraft.

    INSTANTLY tedious! It also crashes if you try to set the video res any higher than 1920.
    Here's the synopsis:
    -leave compound and punch
    INSTANTLY tedious! It also crashes if you try to set the video res any higher than 1920.
    Here's the synopsis:
    -leave compound and punch (yes, punch!) aliens
    -after the 4th or 5th one you need to heal
    -rinse, repeat a half dozen times....now you can FINALLY buy your first weapon
    -hit aliens....run back to heal.
    -hit aliens...run back to heal.
    -hit aliens.....run back to heal.
    -by now you're getting further and further from the base, at which time you realize you have a run meter and you get tired quick. You have to STAND STILL to recover your meter! You read that correctly....you have to stand and do nothing for your run meter to recharge.

    This game is pure fail. If you want a badass isometric game for free go get Path of Exile and love life again.
