    There are no improvement for the flaws existed in the original SR2. The mains changes are higher resolution support and pirate acting as a race.

    The original design flaws like fast aging of technology, high repairing bills, lack of income in mid-to-late game, high cost of fighting enemies and long traveling time all still exist in the game.

    In terms of gameplay, the balance is even made worse with pirates starting with ridiculously advanced equipment right in the beginning, and will soon conquer the universe under normal difficulty quite fast.

    On the technical side, the performance seems to be a bit worse than the original one in modern PC environment.

    If you have never played space rangers, you will be blown away by the freedom of choice in a dynamic, living galaxy. Traders trade, pirats pirate, military invades star systems, dominators pop up all over the place to take star systems back. Then there are text based planetary quests, a simple planet-based RTS and a black hole-based arcade game. All to improve your ship and gain power. The RPG elements are really good. One of the greatest games of all times, I played it 4 times all the way through. The only reason why I give it an 8 while I gave original a 10 is that I really want to see Space Rangers 3, and not more addons to the 2. Full Review »

    Really cool sandbox gameplay. Fantastic! Couldn't take off from that game so many hours. Difficulty could be tuned up to very challenging level. 10 from 10. Full Review »
