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!

  • 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

  • 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.

Das Spiel ist am Anfang hart zu verstehen und eine Herausforderung, wird dann aber im normalen Modus schnell zu einfach.
Man sollte es dann einfach höher einstellen dann wird es eine richtige Herausforderund mit großen Schlachten.

Der Vorteil im Vergleich zu Sins of an Solar Empire ist das die Schiffe jederzeit in jedes beliebige System springen können und das man deswegen keine statischen Linien aufbauen kann. Außerdem bewegen sich die Schiffe im Gefecht und hängen nicht nur dumm rum und ballern, deswegen kann man verschiedene Schiffstypen ausbauen die z.B. die feindlichen Linien durchbrechen und dabei in jede Richtung schießen oder Schiffe die mit Waffen auf große Distanz auf den Feind schießen.

developer abaondoned this to anounce stardrive 2 without ever finishing many of the in game functions and content. my system could start the game, but many of my friends could not even get it to start. their posts in the dev forums went as problem solved. there is a huge memory problem that causes a crash even on my system after a couple hours of play. many crybaby ideas in forums turned most of the game content into nurfs instead of real balancing. the playable races only a few had full ship trees while the rest were place holders. developer money grab attitude has given me the policy to not support indie projects. rather have a company take control of the project and hold people accountable for my dollars.

all that out of the way the game even in its unfished form was extremely fun. if you can actually get it to run and play up to the 4 hour limit on single game then stardrive is gonna be a good time. ship customization is unparalleled. and if you can get over the fact that the other races are not and will not ever be finished then who cares. if you can look pass numerous dead ends in the games ui or story function because this project was abandoned for stardrive 2... then you gonna have a good time. for 30 bucks i wouldnt do it theres other fun out there for that kind of money. if it goes on sale id say pick it up. steams good like that.

i ultimately would not recommend supporting a game that gets abandoned for a sequel. if track records go this way then i would lookout for anything in the future with names attached to it from members of this project. early access never again.

I really want to like this game. But its so very fustrating playing through and having the game crash 3/4 of the way through. Lots of techinal issues esspecially on the smaller maps when the AI goes small ship crazy and lags the game to a stand still. I'd rather see them fix the first game then roll out plans for a Stardrive 2.

Remove content from the game and call it 1.0, leave lategame an unplayable resource-hogging grindfest, take the money and start development on a new game - these are the practices of our time.

So Stardrive has a lot going for it. The ability to design each ship piece by piece and then set their AI. Want a large slow ship with all weapons pointing forward to hammer other large ships? What about making it lighter and pointing all the weapons to the sides and have it strafe through destroying smaller ships? Swap out those weapons for fighter bays and launch swarms of fighter ships. Don't like cannons? Switch out to missiles or lasers. Load it with emp weapons to disable other ships or tractor beams to bring fast ships to a halt and rip them apart with cannon fire.

Each race oozes with their own personality. From samuri space bears to mechanical hive mind of the Opertis.

Build a grand empire of planets. Forge treaties and even a federation with long time allies. The diplomacy system is not ground breaking but quite adequate.

The only down side, and it's a big one, is the slow down you experience late game. No matter how beastly your PC is the game is going to crawl latter on when each race has hundreds of ships and are duking it out with each other.

I really liked this game. There are a few bugs in it but it has a large tech tree and the AI is decent. Designing ships in this game is one of my favorite things as there are plenty of different ways to build a decent ship. It took a bit to get used to but it's not as terrible to learn as a lot of these indi 4x games.

This game is a complete and infinite sandbox amalgamation of two of history's most prominant pioneers of deep space pioneer exploration game franchises; Master of Orion 1&2 and Star Control 1&2. If you aren't aware of these games or their significancant contributions to the genre than I simply could not even begin to lend any insight with mere words. On the other hand the game does feel... Unfinished. It has blockbuster potential for a niche crowd, and without keymapping within the game's options it does have a particularly cumbersome control scheme, which very well could turn away even the most enthusiastic of novice players. I also found myself strongly desiring far more depth of interaction dynamics between the various species. If you haven't any experience with this type of game, you almost assuredly will dislike this game. For me though, two thumbs up.

I waited long to write this review as this game had huge potential.
It is amazing work considering that it was all made by just one person. Unfortunately that person moved on and never finished this game.
You can custom built and constantly upgrade your space ships and watch them perform in battle. Which is quite addictive. It could have been so good. Unfortunately, many game mechanics are broken and will never get fixed. Trade ships don't work properly which will render your population starving despite having a food surplus. Mikromanaging it all is possible to some extent, but those settings are lost once you load a game. Pathfinding, AI and diplomacy are rubbish together with a minimalistic story line. Overall I sadly can only advise to stay away from this unfinished broken product...

Game is over priced at $30 should be about $5, Dev is a thief, lies, throws fits in forums and does not follow through on promises. Steam should remove this game and not even consider anything else from this developer.

Please dont listen to the rage noobs, the game is finished!
I played it a lot and havnt seen 1 bug!
The graphics are nice, the battles are nice, this is the ONLY game where you have dynamic battles,
where you have 50 ships vs 50 ships, where each ship have its individual movment path, batlte animations,
and much more. The reason why rage kids post about its not beein finished is because the devs
said they will try and add multiplayer, but with time they found out that the core engine wont allowe it,
so they abandoned the plan. Other then that, the game is 100% balanced and finished.
Very nice and unique game, hope ST2 will bring us much of what we have right now, but with even better graphics
and more tech and races!

This game tried so hard to be MoO2. It feels like the developers tried just a little too hard to differentiate it. "What if we did MoO2 but real time? TOTALLY AWESOME, AMIRITE?"

The most glaring problem is that the sense of time scale is normalized. Ships fight in the same time that planets are colonized. I can understand possibly having ship TRAVEL and colonization on the same scale, but combat is vastly, vastly faster. However, it's still on the same time scale.

The user interface is abysmal. Tooltips aren't really tips. The user icons aren't extremely desciptive, but can be memorized. It's not explained what some of the icons are. It took a few google searches to figure out that the swirlies next to system or planet names means there's an exploration anomaly. Nothing in the game indicated this. It was my third play attempt that I figured this out. The tooltip time to show is very long, so I'm waiting 15~30s to figure out what that button does.

Ship design is nice, but not my cup of tea. I have no idea what gun is better than another. There are too many variables to balance.

This game is definitely not for me. Looking for something that's difficult to learn and master? Perhaps this is for you. To me, this is a nice beta product. Needs s-loads of polish.

This game is ok... but just isn't as good as endless space or a few of the others out there. No real tutorial leaves you to just click around and try to figure things out, which isn't all bad if the game is intuitive which a lot of what I am finding isn't the case with this game. Overall get a different game and don't waste your time.

It's been very difficult for me to get into 4x games. I tried Galactic civ 2 a little while ago and got confused as anything, tried to play a bit of Sins of a solar empire but was completely overwhelmed with how much was involved in playing. Then I picked up Endless space, which I'm really wanting to get into but the learning curve again is huge for me.
The only 4x I've enjoyed and have found easy to play but not spent a great deal of time on is Civ 5, which I plan on going back to sometime but for some reason I'm set on learning how to play a SPACE 4x.

With Stardrive, I think I've found my 4x space training wheels. I've not found it as complex as the others, not turn based and for me, it's easing me into how 4x games essentially work.

I can't say much about the negativity surrounding the game because I'm only new to the genre but as a game, I'm finding that it functions great so far.

Graphically I can not complain, the music and sounds are nice. I'm sure as I play more, I'm going to find things I don't like and once I get used to the genre I'll start playing other 4x space games then look back on this and make comparisons but for now, this seems like a great entry level game to the genre.

I see a lot of negative reviews for this game and I really don't agree with them. This is a solid game with a very distinct art style. It looks really good and yet very simple, which is not a bad thing. The game is very easy to learn and is quite deep in it's ship customization and you will spend many hours designing and perfecting your ship designs. There is nothing more satisfying than having your custom badass capitalship send out a swarm of your custom fighters and totaly anhialate an enemy fleet.

Compared to a lot of other 4X games, Stardrive does not have as big of a techtree, there is still plenty of things to research but compared to games like Endless Space it's far from enough. One thing I really miss is more ways to improve your planets and concidering all the buildingspace you have left, there is room for a lot more.

Pros:
- Short learning curve
- Deep shipdesign
- Real-time gameplay
- Addicting

Cons:
- Not enough to research
- Ground battles
- Game crash after a few hours of play
- Save files are way to big
