Premièrement, Je trouve injuste les joueurs qui insulte ce titre parce qu'ils trouvent les grafiques attroce pour un jeux de 2007. Je tiens à précisé que ce jeux, créé par un petit studio que (sarcasme ON) tout le monde connais, (sarsame OFF) Hermitworks Entertainment Corporation, qui avait moins de 100 000$ pour produire ce jeux contrairement au compagnie comme 2K, EA, Ubisoft, THQ et plusieurs autres qui ont plusieurs millions , les meilleurs concepteurs et programmeurs au monde ainsi que parfois plusieurs année pour produire un jeux.
Pour un jeux de ce budget, je croix qu'on peu évité de blâmé les graphiques et même que honnêtement, je ne les trouve pas si mal que sa, même la bande sonore reste carrément correcte.
Je veux également préciser que le jeux ne peux pas se mettre en français...

Remember that game Drug Wars that you'd play on your TI-83?

This is it.

Okay, so its not exactly the same. But all the basics are there. You buy stuff and then go somewhere else to sell it in hopes of making a profit. There isn't a whole lot else to this game worth mentioning.

There is a shooter element tossed in that just feels clunky and out of place, that I personally just avoided as much as possible.

If you want to hone your trading skills before stepping into the TF2 Trading Market, then go ahead and get this game.

But if you never play it, you're not missing out on anything.

Have really enjoyed this game, bought on a whim during a sale. A mix of a space-trading game, NPC quests, and a basic FPS, this game has a unique quirky feel to it. The campaigns are well structured and self-explanatory for the most part.

It's clunky, unforgiving, and takes away all your money once you make "the deal." It makes no allowances for overshooting a financial goal. Removes any desire to play more unless you simply like looking for the best way to make deals.

I just found a box of dark matter lying on the moon. I traded it for some stems cells, which I brought to earth to trade for several hundred crates of bananabis. This is the greatest game I have ever played.

This game is really poor and sucks at all...
You are meant to be a space merchant, so sell/buy goods across the galaxy... But the machanics are awful. The game is made of "chapters". In each chapter, you have a money goal to earn in limited time, each time you jump to another planet, the time decreased (moon to earth equal 22 hours for example). The only thing to do is buy goods cheap and resell it on another planet hoping the price raised during your travel. And that's all...

There's bounty hunter missions, in a FPS mode, but it sucks, the IA run to you and in 3 seconds you're dead. There's also quest "fedex style" people wants you to buy them goods that are nos availables on their home planet...

I don't understand what is the purpose of this game as it has only 5 "chapters" (as seen on the title screen) and no free mode to roam over the galaxy.

No interest at all. I bought this game for about 2€ and I feel like I was stolen.

Ce jeu est vivement conseillé pour une aventure multi-joueur passionante, surprenante et à la durée de vie exceptionnelle. En effet, vous remarquerez très vite qu'il est impossible de jouer en multi-joueur parceque... Je sais pas mais on peut pas. Du coup vous pourrez vous rabattre sur ce solo aux graphismes digne d'une Commodore 64 et d'une histoire complétement abhérante tellement elle est inintéressante. Si vous réussissez à comprendre un minimum ce qu'il se passe, vous finirez très vite ( en 1 minute ) l'un des 4 chapitres. Bref pour 1.24€ plutot acheter une baguette de pain là et le plaisir sera meilleur !

Did you ever play 'Drug Warz', the game that introduced a generation to the 'buy low, sell high' method of wealth attainment which probably led to the tragic american housing crash of 2008? Did you ever wish that you could have that very game wrapped up in a semi pointless 3D world you could navigate by clicking on someone's name to instantly teleport to them instead of walking all that distance? Did you ever wish that you could do all that and get to utilize those elite twitch shooter skills you gained through endless hours of Quake III Arena while all of your friends left you behind to obtain quality educations, well-paying jobs and loving spouses?

I know I did!

So when I came across Space Trader: Merchant Marine I knew I'd found the game for me. Marvel at the 2004 era graphics in a game that came out in 2008! (Same year as that housing market crash, I smell the NWO behind this) Throw your hands to the sky when you first break the 7-figure ceiling just by virtue of buying things when they're crashing hard because it's bound to bounce back in the next 48 hours!

Weep when you realize your job is terrible, you're lucky if you have thee figures in the bank and rent is coming due, the Illuminati forced the bank to foreclose on your house four years ago, (BECAUSE YOU KNOW TOO MUCH, DAMN IT!) and you aren't actually flitting between the stars flogging over priced Bananabis at every starport between Earth and Cygnus, you're sitting at your computer waiting to die.

9.5/10 it's okay from a gameplay persepctive.

1/10 for being a front for the Bilderberg group and secretly manipulating the masses, you foolish sheep.

Space Trader is a very casual trader game. You mostly trade stuff and try to make as much profit as possible in a predifined timelimit. Trading side is like playing the old drug wars but it has some extra quests dialogs and events added.

On top of that there are bounties you can collect which take you to combat mode. If you catch the target, it's just more money. Additionally you will occationally get boarded by officials who try to make you pay taxes. If you are greedy, you will try and fight em, which will make the game even more interesting. Hard Stakes =) While the basic game is easy, the challenges can feel ridicilously hard giving something extra to the game.

If you are looking for something special you will definitely be disappointed, but I found it to be a fun and easy going game.

Honestly, the game completely lacks any and all substance. It's bland, forgettable, boring and tedious.

In the game, you play as an unnamed adventurer/trader, that sets forth to do one thing, become the Master Trader of the known universe/galaxy. One of the first missions is to find some chick that will give you a million credits on loan in order for you to buy a ship and start trading. You have a deadline when to get the million credits needed, and this formula repeats itself several times throughout the game, so much so that even the multiplayer is basically only that. Oh, and no one plays the multiplayer. In order to GET the million credits, you have to buy some commodities on Earth, and go to the Moon (which is just clicking a button) and selling your merchandise. Or you can do contracts. More on that later.

The trading system is very simple. You get to one of the merchants, you see the commodities they have for sale, and you buy it. There is a bar graph showcasing whether the market price for the item is declining or not, however the graph is pretty much nonsense, seeing as there's no trend whatsoever, and seems to be entirely, 100% random. To add to that, the trading is a pretty pathetic source of income, as even if you get lucky, you won't really earn a huge profit on anything you sell.

You can also find random commodities strewn throughout the worlds you find yourself, so there's no real reason to actually BUY commodities, as you'll find some semi-valuable stuff just laying on the floor in the map, free for the taking. Items range from wool to fetuses and radioactive metals and whatnot, and the "illegal" stuff is more valuable than the legitimate trading commodities. The game doesn't punish you for owning or selling illegal commodities, which was a wasted opportunity for some amusing gameplay as an actual smuggler. Shame.

The second source of money is through doing contracts or helping people out with arduous tasks. To get a contract, you have to go to the bar, where the barman will give you a target which you have to kill. This is where the game gets a slight instance of gameplay, by introducing an FPS arena, however, this falls flat as well, because the gunplay is so barebones it physically hurts to play through the FPS stages. The missions where you help people out aren't much better, as the case often is that you're simply collecting or buying X commodity and bringing it to some random dude or chick. Again, incredibly tedious.

Also, the game came out 2008 if I'm not wrong. I originally thought it came out around 1999, when Freelancer came out, but holy ♥♥♥♥ 2008????????????????????????????????

The music is obnoxious and not memorable in any way (read: elevator music), it features abysmal graphics, the little mechanics the game has are horribly unrefined, the economic system is non functioning, trading is next to useless unless you get some very rare, expensive commodities from missions, and the entire game feels like a chore.

Overall, I'd give it a 3/10, would not recommend unless you have literally nothing else to do in your life.

This game blows. The idea is great, but the execution is just plain awefull. I understand this is an indie title, but the graphics, gameplay, sound, just everything suck. Travelling between planets is just a click, you never even see your spaceship takeoff. The npc's look lifeless, and never change their facial expression. The enviroments are small and boring. The shooter levels are almost all the same, and play like a shovelware crap shooter. No strategy or anything. You cannot buy weapons for the fps stages, but you can by generic crates of weapons to trade. This is beyond dumb. I can't believe anybody enjoyed this game.

Strangely likeable despite being somewhat terrible. The trading side of the game is solid and fun if lacking a little in inventory. Unfortunately it also has a really crappy FPS element to it which definitely lets it down as a whole. That aside, I find it quite enjoyable and the price is low enough that it serves its purpose as a timekiller. Your mileage may vary.

If you just want something to kill time then its an ok game, very basic FPS scenarios that you can do when collecting bounties and such in missions and basic buy cheap/sell for a profit system...the only downside to this game is there is not a sandbox mode...which ends up making the game dull and redundant when you have to start from scratch every time you complete a mission.

Def not worth the full price...worth the 49 cents I paid for it while on sale.

Space Trader Merchant Marine was released in Oct 23, 2008. It boasts a score of 89% from a review by GameFocus saying, ""One of the best indie games of 2008. An innovative and addictive experience. Addictive, very fun and innovative are the best words to describe the game and the bottom line is this is a welcome addition to any gamer's library so buy this game and enjoy it."

This is very akin to the how 'reviews' reflected Bubsy 3D on its own packaging, to those that remember.

The game is broken down into four different areas, exploration, trading, time management, and fighting/bounty hunting.

The exploration is very limited, your only goal being to find crates of goods floating about, merchants, and the bar keep. The problem is that once you've gone through it once, you know where it all is, no variation, same boring bland walls, ect., and it honestly starts to feel like a chore.

The time management is very simple. Go to X location from y location = z time spent. You have a set amount of time in every 'chapter' to complete a set $$$ quota. Besides the time spent traveling through the travel menu, any time spent at a location does not diminish the time that you have left. And as thus, does not really give you any time pressure.

The trading is a joke, as, all you do it buy what's not doing well, and travel, and get guaranteed profit. It hardly reflects actual market value in the real world and makes the game largely unchallenging.

The fighting/bounty hunting is terribly bland and cycles through the same maps. Stupid AI, overpowered guns, and cheap kills, makes it horrid.

Now, all that said, this was made in 2008, 2-0-0-8, to be sure. Other games that were made in this period were:

Fable 2
Fallout 3
LittleBIGPlanet
Rock Band 2
Gears Of War 2
Spore
Grand Theft Auto IV
No More Heroes
Left 4 Dead
Professor Layton & The Curious Village

Compared to that list, the time period the game was released, and actual content in the game... it makes it look mediocre, a joke, something that belongs in a 2000 release.

I bought this game for 50 cents when it was on sale. I should have spent that 50 cents on a bag of chips. Or a soda. Or maybe a bottle of that pure water stuff.
It's playable until you realize your entire goal is to buy ♥♥♥♥ and then sell it for more money. Good thing it was only 50 cents.
