Om detta spel

Vi befinner oss i en avlägsen framtid där mänskligheten styrs av Räkenskapsministeriet, en förtryckande byråkrati som spårar, registrerar och beskattar alla transaktioner i människornas dagliga liv. Men ur paragrafrytteriet växer det fram en helt ny grupp av affärsmän som utmanar myndigheterna och börjar tjäna pengar, därav namnet Space Trader!

Som handelsman försöker du göra dig en förmögenhet av gastronomiska mått genom att köpa och sälja varor och ta till våld mot förtryckarregimen eller rentav ta på dig prisjägaruppdrag för att jaga rätt på kriminella bossar och deras underhuggare.

  • Handelskampanj: Du börjar som rookie och arbetar dig upp till handelsmästare genom smarta affärer, affärsuppgörelser på mörka bakgator, mutor, en välplacerad kula här och där och så vidare genom en utmanande enspelarkampanj i fem nivåer.
  • Tre utmaningar: Testa dina handelsfärdigheter i de tre unika bonusuppdragen Moon Madness, Free Trade och Red Eye Trader.
  • Från järnmalm till organ: Vänd motgångar till medgångar. Köp billigt, sälj dyrt. Möt efterfrågan med över 40 olika handelsvaror.
  • Ta ditt skepp och res: Besök sju planeter med tillhörande månar, gör små stopp på vägen och slå dig i slang med över 100 figurer.
  • Konflikter gör dig starkare: Använd dig av en mängd olika vapen, leta rätt på kriminella bossar och tjäna pengar på att sätta dit dem.
  • Lagbaserad tävling: Utmana vänner och familjemedlemmar. Sällan har samarbete varit så tävlingsinriktat!
  • Steam-prestationer: Lås upp sammanlagt 40 Steam-prestationer.

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.

This is a waste of time...
The only positive element is the trading (buy low and sell high in another market), but the layout and the other elements ruin this part totally. Would not recomend this to anyone.

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.

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.
