DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. INSTEAD OF IT GET THE ANDROID VERSION.
THIS IS A WARNING YOU WILL AGREE.

This is normally an Android and iPhone game and it's free on Andrid. Don't know about iPhone version.
But the PC version is $20, and doesn't even have some of the free content of GoF2 Android.
Android version additionally has:
Loma system and Kaamo club (Shima System) and about 10 more systems that PC version doesn't have.
30 more ships in Android version.
PC version doesn't include autoturrets, mines, sentry guns, and more cool weapons.
More blueprints in Android version.
Top-tier equipments aren't included in PC Version.
DLCs aren't included. In Android even if you buy all DLCs you don't spend $20.
9 achievements aren't included.
Why Deep Silver? WHY!?

I wish I could not recommend this game, I really do. I loved the game on iOS and have all the DLC and updates and the HD version there. The PC port is just what it is, a highly disappointing PC port, with no patches, DLC, or support. All it does is take the original game and put it with better graphics and stability. And boy, is it good. This game, especially with the lack of support, and the way the devs have treated the PC version, does not deserve a good review. But I can't resist. I love this game, and even with so much missing content (even the Kaamo club is gone), I still love the game. However,

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME AT FULL PRICE!

I am serious. It is not at all worth 20 bucks. It is worth 5 at most, the same as the iOS HD version. So, get it on sale, like I did, and you are far less likely to regret your decision.

A fun little arcade space game that has quite a lot of different types of ships and customization. The story and dialog is pretty weak, but there's still enough here for a few hours of fun.

While there are side missions, they consist of just a few "canned" missions like transport, attack pirates, trading goods, escort, etc. They're a quick way to make money and don't add to the story. There are a few npc's that will sell you charts to "hidden" systems or special items.

For a game that tends to focus on trading, they didn't make it very intuitive. There's no way to store goods, so you either have to get a ship with LOTS of cargo space, or just sell anything you get right away. There's also no economy map. You can look at the highest\lowest known prices for each item; but prices change a lot, and so you have to constantly check which turns into a click-fest. If they just added an economy map all this could be remedied.

AI is mediocre, usually the only challenge is being outnumbered 10-1. Fighting a couple ships at a time usually isn't a challenge once you get some better weapons and items. But watching AI battle each other can be painful.

Graphics look decen't, but for some reason the background stars look blurry and washed out. Planets and special fx look really sharp and crisp, overall they get the job done.

I'd highly recommend a controller, and to get the game on sale ($20 seems a little steep).

After 11 hours of gameplay i have now reached the end of the story line. and i have a 250000 dollar ship. im pretty happy. now its time to sit back and enjoy the rest of the game with missions and mining. and possible some enemy killings! And save up for bigger and better ships!

Loved this game. I can absolutely recommend this to other space nuts. I saw this game was on ipad too but i like playing games with xbox controller and with steam screenshots its not getting any better!

Illusion of open world space RPG. Sadly, after a few hours it gets boring, repetitive and cannot be able to show me anything new. It is a good game, but I do not recommend, if you expect a compelling space world with trading routes and story. Thats not here.
