About This Game

Space Rangers HD: A War Apart remasters and expands the world of the cult classic Space Rangers 2. The game is developed by the SNK-Games team in close cooperation with fans of the series.


The biggest of the improved features is a new scenario dedicated to the pirates threatening the galaxy. While the Coalition spends all of its resources to fight the Dominators (sentient machines who seek to eradicate all life), the pirates have united under the banner of a mysterious leader. Under this new master they have begun their own guerrilla war to seize power in the weakened Galaxy. Players can now choose with whom to deal, the Dominators or the pirates, or both at the same time. If you choose the latter path, you will receive new story and side quests, new goals and promotions. After winning one of the wars, you can either finish the game or continue playing to win another.


Players begin their pirate career as the lowest of the low, and will make their way to the top of the pirate hierarchy, completing story missions and learning new information about the organization and its unknown leader whose actions threaten the very existence of the Coalition of sentient species. All player actions affect what kind of place the Galaxy will be at the end, with the victorious Coalition that managed to overcome its enemies or with a collapsed alliance from both external Dominator and internal pirate pressures.
The game has received a major technical overhaul in addition to the addition of new content. All of the main menu, loading screens, planet and space station vistas were reworked. Now you can choose a display resolution of up to 1920×1200 and planetary battles employ modern render technologies.

Key Features:

  • New pirate subplot. After completing any one of the story branches a player can either end the game, or continue playing to complete another branch. the player’s actions influence the entire Galaxy, while the balance in either of wars may be tipped not only by the player, but by AI actions as well. No two playthroughs will be the same.
  • Major technical overhaul. Display resolutions up to 1920×1200, multi-core processors, Windows® 7, and anti-aliasing in 3D planetary battles are now fully supported.
  • Extended soundtrack means you’ll hear more than 15 completely new musical themes specially created for deeper immersion into the amazing Space Rangers universe.
  • Other improvements include more than 10 new text adventures, 15+ planetary battle maps, 20+ government missions, unique non-story events, new equipment and micromodules, access to all hyperspace engagements from the main menu and more!

A-

God damn this game is for mega nerds. Flying around, playing space, getting rich via capitalism -- it is all here. You can go to Venus and buy drugs. You can get a sailor-themed prison tattoo. I'm pretty sure for my latest quest I delivered the One Ring to Mount Doom in space. There are text quests galore. There are RTS missions of questionable quality. There are arcade-style shooting minigames that kind of suck but it doesn't matter because they are all optional. I started out as a wussy trader who got picked on my space pirates non-stop. Now I am a seasoned Space Ranger who kills for fun. It is a pretty good game. It was made by Russians.

An excellent game. One of the best space shooter-trader games around. A sandbox in essence with voluntary random quests and the main goal to fulfill sooner or later. Although it is 2D and turn based, its combat is really thrilling and you need to plan your moves well. What is more, even looting is thrilling, since competing NPCs may steal what's dropped off your precious kill. You can do the same to their loot too, luckily.
Trade in this game works great, unlike in most other space shooter-traders. You can get more and less subtle hints from planetary profiles, galactic news, business centers.
Plenty of options what ship hull to buy and how to equip it. Oh, and checking on shops for ship equipment is fun too, because these items are semi-random, ie. random within their class range.
And then, there is this heaps of subgames. Y'see, we have this Czech saying, "It's like, as if a dog and a cat baked a cake together.", but this is not the case. It all fits together nicely. It feels refreshing. The wormhole arcade battles in realtime, the 3D RTS battles (those are real tough), and the most marvelous greatly designed text adventures for all you retro fans out there.
Want an alternative to the common good guy plot? Playing a pirate has equally fine options here.

I've already finished old SR1 and SR2 and keep coming for more with this HD gem.

This is a damned good game. Damned good at being multiple games, and succeeding at it. Turn based space combat, real time space combat, text quests, real time strategy, other games would settle on a mere one or two of these, but Space Rangers HD: A War Apart is essentially the swiss army knife of space gaming. With its consiterable polish from the previous versions, and new content, this game is a must have. It is a perfect entry point into the game if you've never played it before. That said, if you've played previous versions of the game, you might consiter waiting for a slight discount. Even still, it's a bargain at any price, and will keep you entertained for literally hundreds of hours.
