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.

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

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.

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.
