SE NON AVETE MAI SENTITO PARLARE DI QUESTO GIOCO, LEGGETE L'INTERA RECENSIONE

CONTRO:

Ê un gioco indie e casual del 2008 TOTALMENTE inglese. Tutto il comparto tecnico fa pena, ogni cosa nel gioco è scriptata. Il gioco si chiama Space Trader:
-Di Space non ha nulla: puoi vagare tra pianeti in un microsecondo con un click, senza neanche un' animazione.
-Trader sta per scambi: lo scopo dell'intero gioco è farsi i soldi comprando e vendendo pochissimi prodotti, praticamente è la definizione della noia.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ogni tanto ci sono delle sessioni FPS che sono poco organizzate:
-le armi fanno tutte schifo (FORSE sono i controlli che le rendono inaccessibili)
-non puoi sceglierti le armi (tanto fanno schifo uguale)
-le mappe sono tutti uguali
-le mappe hanno un level design incredibilmente brutto
-se perdi UNA volta in una sessione, ti fa ricominciare SENZA scudi, SENZA armi, con un soffio di vita, e con TUTTI gli avversari che ti inseguono ( la definizione di spawn kill).

PRO:
-in questi giorni con 40 centesimi vi portate 700mb di noia, PRATICAMENTE UN AFFARE!!---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------NON BUTTATE 40 CENT. COMPRATI 4 Goleador E STAI MEGLIO!

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.

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 marketprice for the item is declining or not, however the graph is pretty much nonsense, as the prices will not rise or fall following any kind of trend whatsoever, instead it is completely random. 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.

Oh, you can also find random commodities strewn throughout the worlds you're at, so there's no real reason to actually BUY commodities, as you'll easily find everything from wool to featuses just lying about. Not even joking about those fetuses.

The second option for earning money is through doing contracts or helping people out via 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 bit better, as it introduces SOMETHING into the game, however the FPS part is amazingly barebones and unrefined, and it feels much like a chore than anything else. The missions where you help people out isn'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.

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.

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.
