"If you can stomach the tiered progression grind of games like World of Tanks, this is a sci-fi ship-combat version that's worth a look."

3D Model of Razor



The Razor is the first example of an attack craft built with a powerful neural matrix in its core. This matrix allows pilots to remotely connect to the aircraft in just a few seconds. The link between pilot and ship is so strong that when the ship is damaged the pilot feels pain, even if he's millions of kilometers away from the battlefield. The developers sought to push the link between man and machine to the limit, resulting in a ship that is extremely difficult to use for all but the best of pilots.

Mercenaries, explore the cool 3D model of Jt "Razor" HERE!

Story

Three thousand years have passed since the first colonists left Earth. Now the galaxy is divided between the militant star empires and independent mercenary groups. In a remote corner of the galaxy — Sector 1337, the area of the dead — a world has been left behind. Here, the ruins of a great civilization of Aliens have recently been discovered. Huge factories and sprawling cities are falling into decay. Fragments of ships lie on the fields where massive battles were once fought. But there is not a living soul. Everything has been destroyed by a mysterious Cataclysm — a pulsing anomaly that burned out all life within this sector.

This doesn’t stop mankind, the new «owner» of the Universe. Mercenaries and adventurers have flocked to the sector to sift through the ruins and loot its abandoned artifacts, without consideration of the danger. Many have disappeared — including members of well-armed expeditions — but those who have managed to return have uncovered unprecedented riches. So looters continue to come here, to find the Aliens’ lost treasures — and to fight for them.

Abusive Admins. WARNING!!!!!

I want to give a positive review, I really do, but it feels dishonest to do so.

This game is plagued by its own development team. Unless you are a member of the Russian Master Race your problems and concerns are of no interest to them. The Devs do not want to support a non-Russian community, provide materials for the non-Russian Wiki, collect feedback from non-Russian players or even give complete patch notes to the non-Russian player base. They don't want to fix glaring issues with the game, they don't want to know about what you find fun, and they sure as hell don't want to provide a quality experience - that might get in the way of monetising you!

The core mechanics of the game are good, but used to be better. Much of the game's content is burdened by insane amounts of grind to coax money out of you, and other elements of the game are sealed behind paywalls to ensure proper Pay to Win behaviour is enforced.

Play it by all means - you can have fun providing you don't go beyond Tier 3 - but don't invest any money in it.

Once upon a time -
this was a fun game where you could do space dogfighting as though there was air. The factions were pretty starkly contrasted in their attributes and special abilities on ships making for some interessting choices. It had an OK progression for a FTP game - the premium content was actually more powerful than what could be gained from grinding but it wasn't gamebreaking.

Then came the evil wiz-----a patch.
Aaaand suddenly it doesn't suffice to grind enough "standing" - now you have to grind synergy to unlock new ships that might or might not have a similar ability to the one you currently grind. Abilities got spread around more and some ships received things that are completely pointless on that hull and should've stayed where they once were. Then they switched around the weaponsystems, removing the cool ones and limiting the selection for ships even more than it was before (where at least you could find cool weaponsystems for all classes of hulls). Once you actually grinded enough synergy you hopefully have an astronomic amount of currency to actually buy that new ship as well. Did I mention volunteer secondary missions that lock the ships you select for them out for up to AN ENTIRE WEEK? Yeah - very fun gameplay element that. The premium content is basically mandatory if you ever want to get anywhere.

Now it's a shipwreck (literally) of what it could've been, heck of what it WAS.

DONT
PLAY

Its a fun/good space combat game, at least for the first few ranks, stuff is cheap level upping goes fast and the opponents aren't op yet. then the reality/moneygrabbing kicks in... I'd advice to play the first few ranks, and don't go ranking like a normal person would, instead stay in the low ranks and have fun. otherwise you'll get wooped by people who have paid.
in multiplayer you can get screwed over by teammates who don't know what they are doing.
It feels increb pay2win, I know thats a cheesy critique but thats the way it feels.
I had fun for a couple of hours, now ill delete it.

Used to be a great game but fell apart as everything dumbed down. Don't get me wrong, I loved this game with a passion, but as each update passed. It became worse. Simpler *the bad kind* and a pay to win. Its sad. But its the ultimate truth.

Do not bother.

The grind is massive. The gameplay is repetetive. Ballance is horrible. Low tiers are full of squads who have been playing this game for a long time, but come to low levels to kill new players in their fully equiped and upgraded ships.

Horrible expirience.

Awesome concept and solid gameplay
Horrible balancing and community
Fun when you aren't getting smurfed or teamstomped, but that's very rare

I had also purchased a DLC pack less than 2 weeks before a patch that made premium ships almost pointless, felt very much like bait and switch

Pay 2 win game,

The game is fun with friends, but when you must queue by yourself (because no one plays the god damn game) at higher tier you're screwed.

What's even worse is leveling ships, a horrible cancerous grind because starting with the worst modules and you'll lose most of the time (against paid ships and purple level modules/weapons), and since it's based on performance you'll get little to nothing and spend hours doing PvE instead.

There's free roam which takes hours getting place to place for a daily mission
There's PvP with leveling ships vs paid ships (not really balanced at all then since lower ships vs higher ships)
There's PvE which is the only thing worth doing, but you must wait for the "good ones" since some take forever or difficult.

And that's all there is, I never cared for this game, i only feel the developers tugging at my wallet.
If you like mindlessly grinding for hours, this is your game.

Pros
- Game combat can be enjoyable, not always though, in fact mostly not enjoyable unless you're fully decked out with equipment.
- Open space mode can have really nice battles between corporations, but not often enough.
- Graphics and effects are nice, could use a optional graphic pack for 4k texture.

Cons
- A lot of ping issues, which is the reason for your ship wobbling on its own. The admins just tell you to read over a connection issue forum post, but new players shouldn't have to do that, and instead the servers should be good enough, and setup well enough. Like good hosts that have the best location for the players on the game with good networking.

- The game is really really grindy, not as bad as some other games, but could be more focused on having fun.

- Once you reach Tier 3 pvp, it becomes really difficult for new pilots to adapt, and have any chance. Usually the reason why people quit the game. They enjoy it until T3, which is when they meet fully equipped, mk4 premiums that are almost impossible for new pilots to do anything.

- Not enough population on the game, all bad factors contribute to this, and its only getting worse.

- A few ships feel like they are pay-to-win, not saying they are, but having bonuses they are seen as p2w, such as the Spark, a lot of veterans use it because of the advantages over the Lightbringer. Mauler has advantages over Inquisitor AE. Dessert Eagle and Nukem I are a clear advantage over any of gunships in T3.

- Isn't really enjoyable playing alone, in order to enjoy the game fully, being in a team is needed, which is hard to play as a team.

- People have the image that are non-US corps cheat, which would probably be something to do with ping. Most of the Russian corps in game always seem to kill you faster then what anyone else would be able to do, again, probably because of ping.

- Teamwork isn't encouraged by the game, being in a squad will take forever to get a match. Which is ridiculous, but thats the game for you.

- Developers released dreadnoughts, and basically said "Hey, here are 3 dreadnoughts, you can't change them after you chose one, and here is no information about each of them. Chose wisely." They don't give us information we need to make good choices in game.

- There is a story about a corp, I will not speak of the corp or the user who got banned, but the user had an argument with a moderator, not a terrible argument, and this was on the forums. The user got banned from both the forums and in game for around 45 years. The corp he was a part of were going to speak up against the issue, but decided to quit instead, a medium/large size corp mostly quit together because of a moderators action. The corp leader even put tons of money into the game to help it.

I do not recommend as there is to many problems with a game that has so much potential.
If people think the game is so good, then people shouldn't be leaving. Being blind to the reasons the game is bad will waste your time and money.

There is no controller support for Mac. And there isn't any customer support to speak of. Don't download this game if you want to use a joystick made for Mac/PC or Xbox alike, simply won't work and support will just refer you to the forums without putting a thought into whether your issue is legitimate or not.

I really love the gameplay, it's fantastic and the graphics are breathtaking. If you like using a mouse and keyboard for a simulator, download this game, because it is wonderful for that. The draw of a simulator for me is being able to use controllers to more fully immerse myself in the world. I was really hoping this would be the case for Star Conflict, but it's not.

It's a shame I have to go back and find it going to hell.
Do yourself a favor and go play something else.

My guess is the community has been forgotten, or admins are simply in an advantageous position over the actual head ups.
The game stopped being a game and now it's just like some country with a heavy civil war and dictatorship

First I was very happy to find this game. Its a Shooter not a Simulation.
Was telling an interested friend "wow - i can totaly personalize my ship (modules, weapons, crew, ...)".
But i kind of wrong: The Game was cool until Tier III. But then you will have to pay or accept it as your new 8h-Job and forget about real life.
So its more a DEMO than F2P!
Like some others said, its big fun in the beginning, but if you dont want to pay it becomes boring very fast, because of the need to level up and so the need to do lame PvE-Missions or endless PvP-Matches (waiting to start: 2-6 minutes, around 4 players and 2 stupid bots). First i didn't think "lame PvE-Missions" and "stupid bots" but if you have to do them 20-30 times just to level up and get a ship which is worse than your actual one, because its fresh and not leveled, you begin to forget very or less fast that this is/was a fun game and not your boring job.

It's no really P2W (for example you can't upgrade your weapons and modules for money) but you got to pay to have fun playing it over Tier 3 or 4.
If they would call it a Demo my review would be positive.

This game is incredible if you like a Space RPG shooter with pvp, pve missions and a raid, as well as an open world universe to explore with numerous jump gates pvp zones and 3 factions as well as aliens. Than simply put friends this game is for you from the makers of war thunder this development team has hit it off again. A massive variety of ships across 3 factions
clans are also not faction specific you can fly what ever you like which makes grouping up easy :). As far as cons I can't really say I have any other than the only advise I could give to avoid dying and loosing a lot is don't push past what you can do if the mission says you need to hunt aliens wait until your tough enough with enough upgrades to take em out same goes for grouping in the PVE missions you want to be able to contribute to that team. Hope to see you all in game cheers :)

Love it, only downside being that ships progress into better versions of themselves, not sidegrades, and you can end up fighting someone with a better version of your ship, i.e. is not a balanced playing field.

There is a definate pay to win streak, but you get a great into to the game playing free and the cost is less then other MMOs.

lots of fun, like wot but in space and lot less pay 2win. I would also love if the game had a larger player base, my biggest and only problem really is the fact that it takes from 0 seconds-3 minutes to get me in a match. Now it is usually less than a minute which is awesome and heck its even better than League of Legends but sometimes it can span over 4 minutes in periods of downtime. I really enjoy the player base they are fun and cannot stress how much I would recommend the game. It is 3rd person which i would love to be fixed a.k.a FPSSSSSS style but yolo. Spaceships are really great. If u cant buy elite dangerous right now and jsut want to shoot stuff up? Star conflict is ur man!

Very fun game the battles in space are very fast paced. The graphics are spectacular.
A few bad things...
Pay money or the game is one long grind.
Match making is not the best in the world.
Game mechanics change a lot. So don't think your build will always be good.

Other than that its fun, and they constantly keep adding more content

Fun shooting... in space. Decent amount of variety, but not so much that it's overwhelming. Yes it's grindy, but unless you're racing for endgame that doesn't matter, and you don't need to because it doesn't change the experience much.
You also don't need to spend a lot of money, unless you play for 10 minutes a week and can't be bothered to earn anything.
Biggest problem is lag... you often wind up connected to different global regions, which of course have higher latency depending on your location.
