    Starpoint Gemini 2 is a beast of a game. It gracefully balances exploration, action, narrative, and RPG elements to create a complete package that thrills and excites… most of the time. Be aware that the nature of the missions are repetititive and ultimately a means to an end: to become the most powerful captain in the galaxy.

    Starpoint Gemini 2 is a good wine which gives the most after decanting.

    SG2 has everything that makes space sims great, but despite its complexity is accessible enough to make it a wonderful first step into the genre. [13/2014, p.64]

    It's big and often beautiful, and addictive as well. But it does lack the little extra that would keep me playing for weeks.

    Better than the predecessor, a solid game, but still a bit of a disappointment. Mods could change that, though.

    Some aesthetic issues keep it from being perfect and it lacks the consistent adrenaline-pumping action that thrill-seekers crave, but overall it is an immersive and engaging experience for space captains everywhere.

    It is a vast universe with endless possibilities - nothing more, nothing less. If you prefer solo play and you have a vivid imagination give the game a chance. Otherwise leave it be. [Issue#247]

After 20y of my gaming life, last year i decided to give the Indie games a chance and it has become a great year.

    Out of pure luck, one day i decided to take it on a Daily deal on Steam, and that was like hitting a winning lottery ticket. The feel of a massive universe where u can be what u want, from a economy based mega mogul Trader, to a ransacking Pirate in a search for a better loot. Starpoint Gemini 2 gives u the real feel of space adventure that was last seen in old classic games like Freespace.

    Buy your ship, upgrade its capabilities, choose from a variety of sizes: from small and fast gunner for fast kill, big slow freightleiner for hauling your precious cargo to a nearby station, or just maneuver a mega military carrier in a massive battles. Its up to you, to take your pick from more then 70 of ships that will blow your mind and make u wanna play more to get "that one there" you have seen in on of your many random generated missions.

    Open space universe is a delight to see and feel. No loading screens, big transport network hub ranging from ships T-Drive capabilities to riftways and wormholes, a cluster of asteroid fields and and beautiful crafted nebulas. It all gives you a immersiveness of a real breathing galaxy, in which your adventures will make a big impact on a world.

    All i can say its a great game, especially when i know its made by a really small dev team of real enthusiasts and space game fans.

    Enjoy it, because: The outcome of the universe is in your hands...

This game cought my eye after seeing amazing atmosphereIn the past I played Freelancer, Wing Commander series, X series, Homeworld and such. This game cought my eye after seeing amazing atmosphere and visuals. And after playing it for a while, I must say it feels most like Freelancer. In fact, despite having great sound and visual effects, it is the appealing feeling that kept me in game for a long time. It just feels like a space fairy tale with so much details to it.
    I'll make two examples: tiny sattelites are orbiting planets and they have no other purpose than to look cool and add that small touch to the sensation.
    The other is the name and description of tradeable items - you smuggle "adult magazines", "tarkleaves pot" and "hogwash whiskey", or take a taxi mission to take "super important person" to a different location.
    Game simply has a lot of spirit and doesn't feels generic.
    If the storyline soon to be added keeps this direction, it will be one awesome game!

I've tried this game several times over the years and its just a massive bug fest. This latest try, the game crashed on the very first "action" of landing on the first planet. So I didn't even make it past the tutorial. The last time I tried to play this game (about a year ago)I made it a bit into the game, several levels up, and got a bugged quest. My options were to revert to an older save and lose days of progress or uninstall. Expand
