About the 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!

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.

"What is this crap?" - will ask a lot of people. Well it is one of the best games out there. Good game is a game that has a "soul" or somethign that captivates players and make them think about it when they are at work, at camping, eating hot pockets or sitting in the restroom.
This game is very unique and will bring you much joy, due to its diversity. Strategy, great loot, well written and logical text quests. Even unbalanced 3D planetary fights make you think and try new angles. The game is like a fresh breath in the age of action games with big booms and big boobs.

Think about it as game that was polished by almost indie developers. If you can't wait for all these new big space games to come out, give this baby a shot. You will be surprised what it got for you.

Space Rangers is one of the greatest and most unknown video game series of the past 10 years. An obscure offering from Russia, the second game, now released on steam, is remastered and well worth a couple dozen... Hundreds of hours of your time.

You play as a solo ship captain and choose how to advance your way through the galaxy--will it be trade? Piracy? Military conscription? Courier work? Bounty hunting?

Obviously. But what makes this game so different is that the galaxy is being slowly taken over by "Dominators", a Borg-like machine race with 3 factions which annihilate fleets and conquer star systems. To fight them is futile. At first.

As if that were not enough, the game also incorporates text-adventures for fun and profit, as well as planetary battles ala Starcraft. The ambition and scope of this game has to be commended.

This is the closest that any game has ever come to advancing the genre began by games like Star Command, Rogue and Wing Commander: Privateer. And now the game has trading and acheivements? I give my highest recommendations and hopes for this game.

Space Rangers is at its basics an adventure/RPG set in space. The game is centered around a galactic struggle with a mechanized race known as the Dominators which showed up out of nowhere to give the five main galactic races a pounding. The Space Rangers are the first line of defense against these invaders and are pretty much an autonomous organization built as military and trade support. Players will need to climb up the Ranger ranks, gain new equipment, kill lots of dominators, help research thrive, and eventually take out the three main Dominator command units. How that happens is very open for interpretation.
