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.

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.

This game feels like it is still in beta with all the glitches.

Pros:
Good concept. I enjoy how quickly bases can be built if you have the resources which makes comebacks not entirely out of the picture. Easy to pick up.

Cons:
Ships will shake violently when trying to move and sometimes won't even move when part of a large selected group. AI is horrible for skirmishes. I played a skirmish where the AI player sent its starting construction ship to where I was building my fleet about 5 minutes into the game and it was destroyed easily ending the game.
Gameplay mostly involves waiting around for resources and ships to build up while the AI does nothing to stop you and then easily winning, but if you move into their space too early they send massivly overpowered waves to crush you.
Full of glitches that simply freeze the game and make you have to re-launch. Research points are hard to come by at first, but then there isn't enough to research and you have an abundance of unuseable points.

If you can deal with all that is wrong with this game or if any patches come out to fix the many problems, then this is a decent game.

Sadly, I can't recommend this game; the interface is broken and it doesn't launch correctly. In addition, the multiplayer is broken, the options are bad and once you finally fix it, it still doesn't run!

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.

Bought it during a recent sale - did not know what to expect, was looking forward a HW kind of experience. But the lack of z, lack of overall graphical polishing and relative simplicity of the mechanics are a bit of a disappointment.

Maybe the fact that I played some EVE Online between 2003 and 2011 didn't help much with my expectations :-/
