This game is a beta, you have to pay for! Some even say it is only an Alpha, even after the two patches.
On the pro side there are some pretty good ideas. It is quite complex and there is a lot to do.
The graphics aren't that good, but that is not the main issue. I could live with the graphics.
The game is unplayable because of:
- CTDs all the time
- controls are lousy at least (sometimes your ships won't obey your commands or get stuck or you can't click on them)
- you can't cancel combat and you are stuck in the middle of it
- ships get stuck in warp
- not enough info/tooltips
- no end turn report ("Construction ready" - um where? what is ready?)
- no animated movement of your ships in the stratetic view (ships just "beam" to their destination)
- camera movement is terrible!
- etc. etc. etc.
Do yourself a favour and burn your money instead...that would be more fun, than playing this game..seriously! Have a look in the forums or at amazon.de...devastating reviews! :(
I would say the game MIGHT be playable in 8-10 month from now, right now it looks like a scam from the publisher and nothing to do with the amazing preview videos we all saw...… Expand

So you have to think evenThis is a fine strategy game! it is not too fast paced and it is really important to have a healthy mix of forces. So you have to think even before beginning a match, because you create a deck with a force pool, from which you chose during the battle. And it is kind of realistic. E.g. you have to be careful, that the weak sides and the back of your tanks are protected. Supplies (Ammo, Fuel, Repairs) play a big role. Till now I had a lot of online multiplayer games and I never experienced some major all-defeating strategy. Teamwork is very important in the game, when you play with someone together. There are over 300 nicely modeled units and the graphics are decent. The solo part, especially the campaign, is very challenging, but the presentation of it isn't that exciting. I really can recommend this game to everyone who likes strategy. Hopefully the developer will implement some new features and maps in the future. P.s. sorry for my english, it isn't my mother tongue. See you on the battlefield!… Expand
