About the Game

Decades have passed since war erupted between the United Space Federation and the Alliance of Free Worlds. A bloody conflict that seemed to have reached a stalemate is now about to change, when a third faction suddenly appears.

Take control of a fleet commander returned from exile, rise through the ranks of the United Space Federation forces and join an epic war across the stars. Start with a small group of
frigates, and climb your way to controlling battleships, carriers and planetary bases, in huge space battles and boarding actions. Build space stations and orbital facilities to fortify
your position, build your fleet, extract minerals and research upgrades. Execute boarding actions using marine special forces, and bombard your enemies with orbital long range cannons.

Okay the trailer looks awesome and all, but this game... not for me... like I thought it would be better, but no... Yes it is awesome when you get Carriers... but thats probalby the best part... maybe battleships, but not so much... The rules are weird too... now the story is great and all, which is why most people get it don't get me wrong, but like man the power you want and don't have. It's kind of like Homeworld, if you like that game you will probably like this one, agian the campaign... just like homeworld... not the vs mode that came with the update... that sucks... for real thats not what this game was made for... play the story if you get this game... It's an amazing story line. overall rating: 4/10 again great story, no I would not, hold on... Recommend= No due to lack of happniess in me, Sasifactory is the word I was looking for.

Requires registering with email to do anything besides look at the title screen.

The title screen was in low resolution.

Music on the title screen was not very good.

Honestly its worth buying on sale only. I can see what they were trying to do with the game. But it falls short compared to other games in the genre. Boring missions, ♥♥♥♥poor voice acting, and an annoyingly long tutorial period of around 3-5 missions. I have not and will not finish this game. In the end interesting story but poor implimentation. 4/10 Not Recommended

I was excited when I saw that this game was available for Mac on Steam, but once again a game that my computer clearly meets the requirments for, fails to work on Steam. This is extremely frustrating after paying for and installing the game only to find that it freezes once I start it. On top of that, contacting Steam support is completely useless... Kinda feeled like I got screwed on this.

On Mission 11, got problems with this mission. When reloading a save game file, your colony which you have colonised will vanish so your ship limit goes down the toilet. So you can't build any more ships. Also definitely some sort of problem with the programming side of things as the ship limit numbers are not right. I barely have any ships and the game is registering I have 160 odd spots taken. Weird. Playing on a Mac. The Al in this game is screwed. Basically they outnumber you 5 to 1 a lot of the times. Also their ships are a lot more powerful than yours sometimes. The programming is not very good as the game slows down a lot. Interface for the Mac not well implemented and thought out. I'll see if I can finish Mission 11 with all the programming bugs, if not I'll delete the game and send it to the trash. Rating 5/10 till Mission 10. 2/10 for Mission 11. Campaign is a linear kind one.

This game is just bad. Not bad as in buggy, or unfinished. Bad as in, just not fun, and down right boring. Although, it does have its share of bugs. I wasnt able to run it fullscreen without having the UI stop responding, and just to play the game single player, you have to create an online account that you log in with every time (just annoying).

You spend most of the game looking at your ships as little blue dots, not actual ship graphics. You have to zoom in to an unplayable level to even see your ships graphics. And combat is a snore fest. Even basic frigates last forever, even with 20 enemies blasting them. Takes forever for any ships to die. Im ok with the bad voice acting, and mediocre graphics because the game is an indie game, but the rest of the game is just unacceptable as something I would play when Im looking to have fun.
