    Overall, I have really started to enjoy Spacebase Startopia because of the humorous comments from VAL about your various upgrade choices and chosen actions within each mission. I can wholly recommend Spacebase Startopia to anyone who likes simulation builder games with a good sense of humor through insults because VAL has quite the opinions about you and your decisions.

    The Xbox family of systems is not known for having a great selection of management simulators, so the fact that Spacebase Startopia not only works well but excels most of the time is great news for console players. This is a game that users can quickly get lost in, spending hours trying to perfect the art of building and maintaining the ideal space station without realizing how much time has gone by. Some players might feel slightly put off by the daunting user interface but those who persevere will be rewarded with a satisfying and charming experience.

    Spacebase Startopia on Xbox is a sim game which is full of character and offers a solid experience, especially for those who are fans of the genre. However, the clunky control scheme and uncomplicated formulaic gameplay may prove too much of a barrier for some.

    Not unlike Realmforges’ Dungeons series, Starbase Startopia seeks to bring back an early 2000s classic with very little in terms of new ideas. While it is at times very fun, there simply isn’t much this title offers beyond the setting and the questionable humor. Even the latter seems like someone just randomly picked pop-culture references and ran them through a GLaDOS voice generator. The actual strategy game can be fun, especially with another person to keep you company, but unless you are starved for a new strategy-sim title, you can skip this one without missing much.

    A reinvented classic. Sympathetic and fun but with lights and shadows that keep it away from excellence.

    Spacebase Startopia feels a bit too basic for a management game and is not something you could really spend hours cultivating once you have the station set up. What it offers is rather simplistic, and is marred by regular crashes on console and an AI advisor that you'll grow to hate.
