    Over six years of Early Access, developers added to Space Engineers a lot of options and objects, including entire planets. There’s only one thing that’s still missing: meaningful gameplay. [Issue#238, p.40]

    So space engineers, its just good. its complex and its simple at the same time, if you want a big ship that has everything in it you couldSo space engineers, its just good. its complex and its simple at the same time, if you want a big ship that has everything in it you could possibly need you can, or you can have a small ship with the essentials and a station to land at, in fact you can have almost anything you want in it. Build, mine, search for salvage and one of the best workshop communities on steam. what really is nice about the game is the developers. Keen are just great, weekly updates and a weekly hotfix, they listen to what people say and what people want and they do it. IMPORTANT! this is still an early access title so dont expect it to be 100% perfect, there is no proper AI yet (you will have to read up on that to long to write up on here), and no objectives yet, They recently added in scenarios to play through so high hopes of a very very good space builder.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Fantastic game
    The game is a sandbox game kinda like Minecraft only based in space with tons of awesome features it try's to maintain a 75 year gap in between what the tech is currently and now. The game itself is fun but not for those on the lower end on the PC scale. Fantastic graphics and wonderful collision graphics.

    Maybe creative mode is ok, but all survival mission or campaign have wrong design. There is lot of irritation when there are no simple toolsMaybe creative mode is ok, but all survival mission or campaign have wrong design. There is lot of irritation when there are no simple tools for wheel vehicles (scrap mechanic has more clever possibilities). Constructing and repairing things is annoying a specially when 10cm of asteroid, invisible from far and attached do rest of rock by some invisible connection is destroying hull. Also too much bugs other kinds, but wrong game rules are bigger problem. Expand

    Very fun game, great building and space simulator that's pretty much unrivaled in that regard.

    Utterly ruined by the optimization that makes RAGE look well done. Put three 980s together and maybe you can run it on high settings with no lag. All I know is that I have a 550 gtx and get 10-30fps on low settings on a game that has graphics that wouldn't look out of place on a decade old game. Makes it pretty much unplayable.
