    Star Conflict is an action-packed, massively multiplayer space simulation game that puts players in the role of elite pilots engaging in a widespread interplanetary skirmish.

    Three thousand years have passed since the first colonists left Earth. Now the galaxy is divided between the militant star empires and independent mercenary groups. In a remote corner of the galaxy Sector 1337, the area of the dead a world has been left behind. Here, the ruins of a great civilization of Precursors have recently been discovered. Huge factories and sprawling cities are falling into decay. Fragments of ships lie on the fields where massive battles were once fought. But there is not a living soul. Everything has been destroyed by a mysterious Cataclysm a pulsing anomaly that burned out all life within this sector.

    Gameplay is solid, making this an interesting free to play space shooter. It's not yet War Thunder in orbit, but it's still more than worth a try.

    Some good old honest space combat fun, with an inoffensive free-to-play model. Worth your time, and possibly even your money. [Apr 2013, p.86]

    It might not be a game to remember for years, but the great PvP mode is worth checking out (especially that Star Conflict is free). [01/2015, p.81]

    A solid sci-fi game, but you should probably wait for the release of Elite: Dangerous.

    PvE for me is the real fun in Star Conflict.

    A rich space shooter offering countless hours of fun at no cost with significant features both in terms of variety and depth of game mode, also with a large arsenal available to players and a very good technical sector which makes it extremely enjoyable.

I sometimes find myself leaning forward into my computer as I dive, and lean side to side as I dodge missiles. There are 3 class types which each are very unique and give the game a kind of RPG feel. Looting, rare drops, equipment, leveling also contributes to this feel. Overall a great game especially being FTP. 10 out of 10 for sure. Also i noticed someone commenting on long wait times which must have been when it was first released because now I'd be surprised if i waited longer than 30 secs ever. Great game Expand

Star Conflict is a developing game, but there are already very many features already implemented and much more to come. The depth is also quite amazing and the gameplay is very tactical, but the story does leave a thing or to to be desired. Star Conflict also loses points for immature/profane pilot comms, and a slightly confusing UI. Expand

    A lobby based space shooter.

    What's good.
    1) Great space fighter with much more customization options than the rivals, through diverse module slot distribution and multiple types of weapons with interesting mechanics.
    2) Almost perfect free to play model. The grind is not too much (though it's certainly there), and the ships you can buy with money are not strictly superior (though they are better in some ways, just like every ship has their own quirks).
    3) Very nice gradual learning, you start with very few options, slower ships, only one game mode, and you ramp up the number of modules and modes you can use gradually through the tiers.
    4) Developing competitive side. Observer system already in place, tournaments are held, teams are preparing well ahead.
    5) Multiple game modes with their own interesting mechanics and multiple maps, some very imaginative.

    What's bad
    1) Low population, and all that comes with this. Sometimes long Q times for some modes.
    2) No skill based matchmaking, so everyone is thrown into the game as equals (except squads who have to be matched by an enemy squad), which sometimes lead to very unbalanced matches.
    3) The game is not really dynamic compared to shooters like Freelancer or even Moon Breakers, if you fly anything other than an interceptor than you usually strafe behind cover more than you dogfight, which is fine for frigates but a bit weird for a fighter.
    4) Somewhat lacking balance, one shiptree (graph) (Jericho) is considered strictly inferior in most areas to the others. Hopefully will be patched, and anyone can play anything anyways, it's not restricted, players don't belong to a side.

    All in all, a very enjoyable space shooter, even if somewhat grindy, but if you enjoy your game, you won't notice it at all.

    The game has an interesting concept and potential but is far away from being finished (still in beta) and playable.

    At first it is fun to play this space action game as it has a little bit of depth and takes some strategy to win.
    But soon you'll realize that this game is unbalanced, matchmaking is awful and servers are terrible.

    The lack of players especially in non-Russian territories makes this game even more difficult to play with long wait times for matches.

    The open beta is going on for a year or longer and the game still doesn't have a release date yet. They plan to implement more features and game modes this year and supposed to officially release the game but all that seems far away with the baby steps in development.
