Reviews

“When you finally uncover the secrets to ancient alien technology or build a frigate that wins a deep space battle, StarDrive provides a sense of accomplishment few games can.”
73 – GameInformer

“Some omissions and flaws, but balanced by excellent alien races and ship design. A welcome addition to the crew.”
78 – PC Gamer

“I love that StarDrive’s master lists of ships and planets can be sorted by any column, making it easy to find the largest nearby planet or ships in your fleet that are costing you the most in maintenance.”
70 – Machinima

Über dieses Spiel

StarDrive setzt neue Maßstäbe für das ‘4X Weltraumstrategie’ Genre. Beginnend mit einem einzigen Planeten und einer kleinen Anzahl von Weltraumschiffen wagst du dich in die Galaxie vor, eroberst neue Welten, gründest neue Kolonien und verteidigst deine gesamte Existenz gegen diejenigen, die sich nehmen wollen, was dir gehört. Wie du spielst, ist ganz alleine deine Entscheidung, ob du diplomatisch vorgehst oder mit roher Gewalt. Treibe Handel, spioniere deine Gegner aus und entwickle bahnbrechende Technologien auf deinem Weg zur intergalaktischen Herrschaft. Schließe Freundschaften oder mache dir Todfeinde…


Das Herz von StarDrive ist das umfangreiche Schiffsdesign und die Engine für die Weltraumschlachten. StarDrive´s Schiffsdesign verfolgt einen modularen Ansatz und erlaubt dem Spieler die Schiffsmodule so zusammen zu stellen und zu platzieren, dass sie spürbare Auswirkungen auf die Performance des Schiffes haben. Wenn die Panzerung der Backbordseite während einer Schlacht Schaden erleidet, drehe das Schiff um die eigene Achse und zeige die Steuerbordseite! Verstecke dich hinter den Schilden eines befreundeten Schlachtschiffes; verschwinde mit Hilfe des Warp Antriebs einfach aus dem Schlachtgetümmel oder tauche plötzlich wieder auf, starte deine Jäger, installiere Minenfelder und noch so vieles mehr.

Game Features

  • Echtzeit Gameplay mit nahtlosem Übergang von der großen Strategie Ansicht zur Action Nahansicht
  • Entscheide dich für eine von 8 fantastisch gerenderten Alien Rassen oder designe deine eigene Rasse, die du durch die Galaxis leitest; interagiere, verhandle und täusche Loyalität vor auf deinem Weg zum Sieg!
  • Erkunde das riesige Universum, das buchstäblich zum Leben erwacht durch Zufallsereignisse, ümherfliegender Weltraumschrott, verborgene Schätze, Weltraumterror und Gefahren, die sich erst zum Ende des Spiels auswirken.
  • Baue Forschungszentren zur Entwicklung und Freischaltung neuer Technologien, um den militärischen und industriellen Technologiestandard zu verbessern.
  • Erweitere dein Imperium und kolonisiere alle Arten von Planeten. Besiedle sie, nachdem du sie durch Terraforming bewohnbar gemacht hast und baue
  • Spezialisierte Industrie- Und handelszentren.
  • Kontrolliere deine Schiffe entweder mit klassischen Echtzeitstrategie Befehlen oder spring direkt mitten in das Schlachtgeschehen und steuere ‘arcademäßig’ jedes beliebige Schiff deiner Flotte.
  • Entwirf dein einzigartiges Schiffsdesign mit Hilfe des modularen Schiffsdesigns und nimm dadurch Einfluss auf den Ausgang der Schlachten.
  • Kreire spezielle Flottenformationen und schreibe Regeln vor für Angriff oder Verteidigung mit Hilfe des Easy-To-Use Flotteneditors.
  • Schick Bodentruppen vom Orbit auf die Planetenoberfläche, und zerstöre die letzten Verteidigungseinrichtungen des Feindes im Bodenkampf.

I still play this game but will never buy another game from this developer.

Didn't take long before this game was abandoned and StarDrive 2 was announced. I paid a good amount of money for a promise of a supported game, a new way of doing, blah blah blah.

I really would LIKE to like this game. My favorite part about it is the races - they're very cool and very well designed, and have some great animated assets, and I love the take on race customization the game uses.

Unfortunately, however, this game seems to have been thrown together in the 4X space formula without any polish, refinement, or novel central ideas, and the gameplay suffers terribly because of it. I literally cannot get through a full game in StarDrive. Everything is quirky, unbalanced, hard to find, and unpredictable. Even more of a shame considering the ship designer is one of the less obtuse examples I've seen in games like this. With a UI redesign and a lot of balancing and mechanical refinement, this could be a really cool game. But it's not, and the devs have abandoned it, so don't be fooled by the cool races and graphics.

Hello fellow gamers.

When i first saw Stardrive i thought that this will be very cool, a little different 4X game.
At the very first glance we got everything:
- Sci Fi theme
- Space battles
- Development of our Empire
- Ship design

The formula for most 4X games is simple. We explore, expand, exploit and exterminate. Easy right? Most 4X games are turn based- but not a Stardrive. It is real time.
When i firstly heard of it i thought "cool! it will have more dynamics"
Boy.... i was so wrong.

StarDrive is semi finished game.
I know- hundreds of gamers wrote it in their reviews. But i don't mean bugs, no update for.... ever.
I meen there are only few techs, some about 5-7 buildings to go on planets, few ships.
And thats not all!
The galactic is very empty space- sure there are some pirates and aliens but this is about it.
Nothing more.
So what we really get from buying this game?
Pretty decent ship design tool.
O! and the treading cards.
....
Well music is nice but there is no additional soundtrack so we actually have to play this game to listen to it......
And the dynamic of play i was thinking about?
Nope. This game is slower than most of the turn baset games.
So....

Plus:
+ very good alien graphics
+ space looks nice
+ music
+ ship designer
+ space battles are nice
Minus:
- well you bought a demo of beta version of game
- bugs
- no joy
- slooooooooowwwwwww and boring
- where is content ????

I'm big fan of SciFi and i adore 4X genre and i have to say:
Don't buy it. Please. DON'T

Don't buy this - the main quest is bugged (among other bugs), and the developer abandoned the project before adding any game modes other than the initial sandbox mode.

It's a shame - it was a cool idea, but it's unsupported, unfinished, and the developer obviously doesn't care. Ignore it.

Star Drive

This is a pretty decent game. It runs in real time as do the space battles. Ships can be commanded in space battles for full control of targeting.

Ship design is really neat. Hulls come as is and may be filled with all sorts of space combat goodies. THis is a cool part of the game.

Tech research is pretty neat. There are not a lot of techs but what is there is good.

The alien races are all distinct and filled with personality. There is also cusomization for your race if you want it.

The developer moved on to their next game, Star Drive 2, and they are very active in that title. This game has all that is needed to wage war and conquer the stars. It may be missing some fleshed out things but the game is definitely playable and fun.

Oh, and ground battles are turn based with control over each troop. Pretty cool.

When this game was on kickstarter there was a promise of making the game multiplayer post release. Now it just looks to me like a scam. Many ppl including myself purchased the game wanting to play this with friends. As a singleplayer game i cannot recomend fighting mindless ai it just doesnt cut it for me. As far a stardrive 2 goes i would stay away aswel just looks like a downgraded version.

BEWARE THE ABANDONWARE


I should have left this review a long time ago, but better late than never.
This game was abandoned, unfinished and buggy, by it's developer.
It is believed to be nothing more than a springboard with a "take the money and run" idea for the development of Stardrive 2, a game that is currently practicing horrendous consumerism.

Tl;Dr
Do not buy any Stardrive game.
Avoid all games by Zero Sum Games

The game itself is great.

The guy making it, Zero, is a f*cking C*nt that promised us a significant amount of features that never got around. Instead he took the money made from the game within the first months and bailed.

This "review" is long overdue and won't save another soul, ever, but it serves the purpose of giving Zero the middle finger, which he deserves to recieve, mentally and physically.

I'll be up front right now, I like this game. It offers a unique experience and I find myself coming back again and again to play it. That being said I would not reccomend it unless it was on at least a 75% sale as the game is not complete and pretty much never will be because the dev dropped it.

Now you can play the game, isn't broken you can play and finish a scenario but this game was abandonned and a lot of promises that were made were broken by the dev so there is lack of content and after a few games you get the gist of how things will go and the prospect of losing goes out the window even on the hardest difficulty. The Blackbox mod can fix this a bit but overall it's a problem. In addition you will suffer a lot late game due to poor optimisation that even a really powerful system can't power through. I put a lot of time into this game on my 3570k which was overclocked to 4.8Ghz and on the larger universe settings I still had significant slowdowns and juttering which can and will render the zoomed in direct fleet control unplayable. It basically leads to you sending massed fleets into enemy held systems and hoping that the AI can take care of things.

The best thing to do is the leave the universe size to normal and use the Blackbox mod to limit the number of ships the AI can have because if you don't you will quickly find that the AI will continue to pump out droves of ships and each one will make the game run a bit worse after a certain point. That being said if you have a recent Intel based chip(Sandy or newer) your system should easily be able to handle around around a thousand ships in the universe without significant slowdowns.

Probably my favorite thing about the game is the ship customization. In a word it's friggin cool and it really makes you feel good when your ship you designed is good enough to take on three or four ships of an equivalent class of ship and come out on top. That is I think the thing that really keeps me coming back because I keep finding better and better ways to build my ships and it feels really engaging.

To wrap up this game had loads of potential but it was let down by poor choices made by the dev in both the way they made the game and how the handled the abandonment of it. It is in no way worth the standard $30 asking price, you can pick it up for the unique experience but only if it's less than $10.

Could of been a great game if it ever had been finished... I have loved playing this game from the moment i picked it up in early access but the game crashing bugs have ruined it for me and with no further progress being made on it makes this game as well as other games by this Dev to risky to be of intrest.

Pros:

-Great ship costimization, I have a titan design soly made to disable other capitals while the smaller ships chew it up.
-enjoyable diplomacy
-flexible in game play


Cons:

-Game crashing bugs
-some what confusing UI, till you get used to it.
-not so many techs (can be ether or but i like alot of choice.)
-some of the races were not fully finished when i played and im not going out of my way to look at them again
-unfinished

so all and all good game if it was actually finished, i dont recommend getting this or the next one as it looks the same...
