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
Rock Band 2
Gears Of War 2
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.

This game is ok, so long as you understand that it is a very basic economic game with a little FPS thrown in. What sucks about this game is that your money resets after each section. So do not get a good sales route going thinking that you will have some extra cash to play with after you close out the level you are on.

At first this game seems like fun, especially for its low price. While I admit that I enjoy playing it, there is a ridiculously unfair difficulty spike during the FPS missions. Basically, anytime you have to go kill someone, you get tossed into this terrible FPS minigame where the guns are crap, your controls are crap, and the AI is beyond unfair.

Worst of all, if you fail an important FPS mission, you have to travel to another planet, then return to the previous planet to attempt the mission again, thus wasting a lot of time (the game uses time units to create an artificial challenge). I don't have a problem with that, except in the third chapter you are forced to make $20,000,000 for this woman who put a bomb on your ship. After you make the $20,000,000 you get an option to kill her instead. If you fail at killing her you have to travel away to reset the mission. But what happened to me is when I traveled away I ended up running out of time and failed the entire chapter.

The reason I kept failing to kill her is because she is unfairly strong (combined with the crappy FPS gameplay and unfair AI). But what I don't understand is that the game plays off your failure as though you actually failed, and not as though it's just resetting you back before you attempted the mission. So why doesn't she just blow up your ship? If your failure happens in real time then she should be aware that you're trying to kill her and it would make sense for her to just blow up your ship and kill you - except she doesn't. But the time factor still remains and you can still lose by running out of time (remember the time limit was for you to make $20,000,000 for the woman you're now trying to kill).

I don't know, maybe it's because I'm fresh off a rage quit, but the unfair FPS gameplay and unfair use of the time restrictions really piss me off. I was honestly enjoying the game up until it pulled this crap..

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.

Fun game and pretty cheap. The one problem I have with it is the chapter setup makes it seem rather limiting and you seem to lose all progress between the chapters.
That said, its fun for what it is. The bounty missions are a nice change, explore mode (i.e. walking around) has some nice suprises in it and trading (the reason I played in the first place) works well and is what I expected.
So buy, play, enjoy, just don't expect a deep several hundred hour trading game.

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.

The best thing I have ever played in my entire life.
Changed me as a person.
When I brought that bannabis all the way to the moon- the game forced me to look inside my soul. All of my repressed memories, I confronted and beat. With the help of this game, I beat debt, depression, obesity, you name it.
cons: during a powerful moment, the world around me shuddered and a lamp broke, but it was okay because the devs sent me a antique lamp crafted from compressed stardust that will never break. I didn't even ask

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.

I couldn't resist picking this game up for 49 cents just to see how bad it was. I wasn't disappointed! Have you ever heard of that movie The Room? It's supposed to be the Citizen Cane of bad films. Well if that's true, Space Trader is the Mass Effect 2 of terrible space games.

It's hard to even describe exactly what makes this game so bad. Some games are so buggy or broken or just unplayable that they accumulate terrible reviews. Not Space Trader, it works totally fine! I couldn't find a single bug. Its problem is just a complete lack of ambition at every level. Everything about it is just earnest, straightforward and completely incompetent. It's almost like it wasn't made by a person at all but by an outside observer of the human condition - someone who just fundamentally misunderstands why humans enjoy things. Like, I don't know, a Martian or a hyper-intelligent dog or a robot from an 80's movie.

The main mechanic of the game is an arbitrage simulator, kind of like Drug Wars - you know, that game for the TI82 graphing calculator that you could play in math class without getting in trouble? The main difference is that in Space Trader, it's pretty much on autopilot since the game marks the good deals for you. Also it's not about drugs, it's about such exciting futuristic commodities as "Manufactured Goods" and "Copper Ore."

The combat mechanic is even worse. It's floaty and unreal, like trying to go back and play an old sprite based shooter from 1993. True this isn't a brand new game, but it is from 2008. That's the year Bioshock came out. Think about that for a second. Space Trader's gameplay was out of date by over a decade even back then.

I think my favorite ridiculous detail about the game is in the dialogue. They got the perspective wrong, so when you're talking to the lumpy NPCs, you seem to be at about their nipple level. Sometimes... lower.

If you have two quarters burning a hole in your pocket and you want to see just how bad this game is, give it a shot. On the other hand, you could just use the quarters to do your laundry instead. The Room is available on Netflix if you need something awful to watch while you fold.

Pressing start game takes you to some "Space Trader Console" which does not allow you to see your mouse (the mouse moves behind the window) meaning that you cannot see what buttons you are pressing. You also only have the ability to copy, delete or quit the console, quitting quits, copying does nothing, and neither does delete. You also can't even type into the console, so it's not even a very good typing simulator.

If you like to pretend to be a professional haxor by looking at a console, then this is the game for you.
I was bought this by my ex-friend who wanted to troll me. I have consequently lost 12 minutes of my life, and a friend who I once liked.

Yeahh. Showed promise in concept, but more chaotic FPS than anything. Poorly polished. Just didn't keep up to snuff.
