  1. For those new to this strange epic, the raft of under-the-hood fixes and balances makes it the best place to start. [Feb 2010, p.101]
  2. It’s SR2, but with more awesomeness. It’s still cute, it’s still funny, and chances are now you can even run it on your netbook. If you think you might like it, chances are, you’ll love it. You’d be missing out otherwise.
  3. A great attempt, but light years from a supernova.

    Amazing, amazing game!
    It is a very rare fit when a mix of Strategy, RPG, Action, and Adventure genres comes into a harmonious **** of a
    well-executed game. The game is balanced, adventure parts are very-well written and full of humor, the art is amazing, RPG element is awesome where you gain experience and sell/buy equipment for your ship, planetary strategy is fast-paced and intuitive.
    You just gotta play this game to know what's it about. I had A BLAST!

    Amazing space strategy game. I only found out about this game due to Steam deals but I wish I had found it sooner. Nice to be able to casually play a game like this since the days when I was a kid playing Starflight on the Sega Genesis. Sad to hear this company has since disbanded, I was looking forward to a new game with better graphics and more graphic modes. Already beat it three times and put in over 200 hours of gameplay and it keeps me coming back. Expand

    Great innovative game. Made me feel like playing Pirates! again, this time in space. Lots of stuff to do, explore. Text adventures are fun. I skipped the RTS part, but everything else is absolutely great and interesting. Expand

    One of the best games I have ever played. No words can give this game a fair review. You have to play it to understand it. Also, I must say that when I was watching my friends playing it I wasn't a big fan of this game. But after I played it myself I fell in love with this game. Expand

    I have logged 97 hours into this game. It may not have all the fancy 3d graphics that make other games like X3 looks amazing, but the 2d art is just as breathtaking. If you have ever wanted to explore a universe your own way at your own pace; be involved in a war of annihlation against a supremely superior force, become a master trader in an ever adjusting galactic economy, partake in truly challenging RTS battles each with unique objectives and challenges that serve to push the limits of your tactical thinking, form your own fleet of experienced wingmen, become the ultimate space pirate and prey on innocent civilian and merchant vessels, or become the greatest mercanary and follow the paper trail, and complete very tricky and witty (text) quests that are just as interesting as they are rewarding then this is your game! If your looking for an adventure in a truly living universe where just to survive is a challenge in itself then this is your game. Like I said 97hrs, one play through. I will say I did not give it a perfect score because of two sticking points. One is the translation, its not perfect English, but that never halted my game play. And second, the RTS battles can be pretty unforgivable early on, but once you learn what works best, you learn to relish the challenges. Expand
