A key planet producing war androids has become self-aware and is attempting to conquer the galaxy one planet at a time. These machines are not only capable of fulfilling any order, but they have their own intellect and force of will. This new type of cyber life is driven only by instinct of destruction and cares only about expanding the realm of the silicate. Freedom of choice is a distinguishing feature of the Space Rangers saga and continues as players explore the massive world. The game is not limited by borders and allows players an opportunity to influence the branching storyline. At the same time, the larger and more expansive game world lives and develops by itself. In Space Rangers 2 players will have an opportunity to test their skills not only in outer space, but on planets' surfaces as well. 3D real-time battles on planets is a new part of the game. By producing and upgrading war machines, gamers have a chance to defeat the ominous threat of the Dominators. [1C Company] Expand

Space Rangers 2: Rise of the Dominators Gameplay Movie 1

  1. Imagination will always substitute for visual splendor if a story is told in a genius way, and Space Rangers 2 does exactly that. This is one for the record books, and simply must be played.
  2. What they gave us is not just Baldur’s Gate in space; the core gameplay and thus subsequent gameplay elements are very different – making Space Rangers a unique experience.

    Though it can be hard on a novice, Space Ranger 2's amazing breadth and considerable depth more than make up for its initial difficulty and intermittent lack of polish. [Nov 2005, p.74]
  4. Space Rangers 2 combines an eclectic mix of commerce, action, and RTS-elements, along with a strong visual presence. With that being said, it may falter because it tries to do too many things, instead of one aspect really well.
  5. It’s a space sim, it’s a text based adventure, it’s a 3D shooter, and it’s a trading game. And it comes with the original game as well. A very impressive package with something for everybody.

    It isn’t the most beautiful or best-sounding game out there, but it is one of the most diverse.

    Like "Pirates!" in space, but not as good as that suggests. [Oct 2005, p.92]

    This games success lies in its many different aspects, its a great top dawn space combat & exploration game, then you land on a planet and it This games success lies in its many different aspects, its a great top dawn space combat & exploration game, then you land on a planet and it becomes a good RTS with Mechs. Then you enter a black hole and it becomes a great fun arcade shoot em up, later you accept a mission from an alien race and enter an interesting text adventure story similar to the old Fighting Fantasy Books! This game is a breath of fresh air why can't all PC games be more like this? Expand

    This will be two reviews in one.

    First few hours of the game, I rate an eight (first 3-5 hours). The fights look cool, tend to be thinking-based, you can trade here and there - you know, the usual.
    Quests are fun, script-based text adventures.
    However, after those 5 hours, you'll see that the possibilities game offered had just ended. And you don't want to play it anymore. It gets irritating then, and you rate it a 0.

    What I mean is, all the things that made me like this game to a point of an 8, turned the other cheek and began irritating me. Pointless battles, pointless fighting, pointless pointless pointless.
