About This 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.

While an entertaining premise the gameplay itself is very slow. The ui is unclear and button placements are hard to find and not intuitive at all. For example career mission one takes far too long to get going and when i found out i could build new ships at a nearby military station i self destructed it and failed the mission (the self destruct button is above the build button and has no "are you sure" warning at all. 2/10 would not recommend. Too bad really, could have been an awesome game.

If you're looking for a clickfest, this one is not for you.
It's slow at times, but exactly like strategy games should be.

Got this game on sale. Didn't get it before because of poor reviews.
When I started the game, I had low expectations. Turns out I ended up playing it whole night.
The story (and characters) is a bit predictable, but doesn't stop it from being fun.
Huge battles, a lot of destruction and well, fun!

First off this game is not a top notch AAA title and treat as such. When it was first released it had bugs and save game issues. I waited much later to buy in a indie bundle and couldn't go wrong. If you like Sins of the Solar Empire but with an actual campaign this game is good. The user interface takes some getting used to and could be optimized better to control your planets and territories but for a cheap and enjoyable game it's alright.

Game seems stable now and I'm on 8th mission. If you get be sure to catch it in a indie special or steam sale. Wouldn't suggest paying full price.

I would rate this as an average / good strategy game.
If it had more updates that would expand the tactical options, I would rate it as a great game.

This game is passable a passable RTS in space; there's just not enough here to keep me interested for long.

Graphics are meh, strategy is so so, and the story is cliche. Manuevering your ships for that perfect ambush can be fun for a while.

Get it on discount, and it might keep you occupied for a night or two.

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

Not bad, but also not good, the game is simply....satisfactory. Myself I found the game boring after a few missions, for even with different objectives, the missions become repetable, with loooong stages of waiting for resources/research/construction.

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.

Have you played great space games like Endless Space or Sins of a Solar Empire? Looking for another space game to help you get your epic sci-fi fix? Perhaps you are looking for a nice space game to give to your friends or family as a gift. Well DON'T look here. Simple and sweet, this game is a cash cow whose sole function is to con unsuspecting consumers looking for good space games out of their hard-earned money. I have never seen a game with so little redeeming qualities before i was burden with this game's prescence. Firstly, this game has all of the major mechanics of Sins of a Solar Empire, but it fails to take any of its finess. I literally couldn't care less about either of the factions if I tried. The game's interface was complex to the point that it gets in the way of the gameplay. there was very little unit and defense diversity and even that was plagued with rediculous prerequisite and resource costs. What I'm trying to say is that this game is a waste of everyone's time. But then again, that is what cash cows are meant to do: Steal away your precious money and time
