Alright, so I am re-writing this review again
, and I am still not recommending it but I would like to add a lot of positive things to this review as my intent with these reviews is not at all to hate on the game, but to see the game succeed. This game truly has had ups and downs but I think that at the end of the day, It still is a good game.
Star Conflict is one of my favorite games of all time, but the past few months the game has actually gotten worse in some ways. This review is titled as a “Not recommended game”, but it’s not a bad game. I don’t recommend it because I do not like what the developers are doing with the game.
A good chunk of the game has become a Pay-To-Win; they keep on adding ways to spend your money in-game. With more and more Premium Ships and “Ship Bundles” and all kinds of little game booster packs and all these “Specials Weekends”. Try to avoid wasting your money on them. However if you really want some Premium credits, wait for the DLC Packs to go on sale. Not worth it at full price. But I do understand that it is a free game and Stargem needs to make money, but it is just driving me crazy because They are spending more time on adding ways to get players to spend money on the game than they are actually developing the game!
They also recently added a game mode called Invasion; This includes Aliens, Pirates, Police, lots of new rare items, an open space world that allows you to go across the sectors in the game and dock in the 3 faction’s stations and all kinds of cool stuff like that. This new game mode has a lot of potential, but holy crap is it a pain to play. All the experience holds is getting killed and losing everything you spent hours collecting, getting ♥♥♥♥♥ by Aliens, and very rarely gaining supplies that allow you to make better modules and upgrades. Not that fun, and not worth it. I won’t let that change my view on the game for now as they’re still developing it, but it needs a lot of work.
Also note you should never get too comfortable with the updates; expect change. However it is still a very fun and addicting game. It is still a good game. (With maybe a little too much grinding involved...) But Stargem just needs to stop trying so hard to get people to spend money on the game. I would give the actual game itself an 8.5/10 :]
Also, not that this has anything to do with the review, so excuse me for this, but I'd like to throw on a link to my Star Conflict channel trailer on YouTube. :D Check it out if you'd like. Thankya.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQ7F8ncPzqk
