  • Summary: Space Hack is a sci-fi Action/RPG title with Diablo-inspired gameplay mechanics, presented in real-time 3D graphics. 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, wile not cutting-edge, is simply fun to play... A great game for the money. [Feb 2006, p.86]
  6. 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]
  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.
