Space Rangers is one of those bargain bin games that you stumble across then end up spending an unhealthy amount of time playing.
It adds a lot of variation to the game with the many different types of "minigames" from your old school text based adventures, to RTS ground combat to turn based space combat. While the actually quality of the minigames are medicore, RTS ground combat is simple and the text based adventures can feel as if it turns into reading a novel, the ability to have have over the top adventures breaking out of prisons, searching for subs, piloting a fallin craft into orbit etc can make up for it.
The game has a semi-serious with a decent amount of comedic events and references, as long as you don't require someone to tell you what to do being adventurous can allow many hours of gameplay with your selfmade goals created from the spur of the moment.
