Anmeldelser

“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

Om dette spillet

StarDrive sets a new benchmark for the ‘4X Space Strategy’ genre. Starting with a single planet and a small number of space-worthy vessels, you must venture forth into the galaxy, conquer new worlds, build new colonies and defend your very existence against those who would take what is yours. How you play is your decision. Use diplomacy or brute force. Trade, spy and research your way to galactic domination. Make friends, or create mortal enemies…


The heart of StarDrive is its ship design and combat engine.


StarDrive takes a modular approach to ship design, allowing the player to create custom ships where the composition and placement of ship modules really matters to the performance of a ship.. In combat, if your portside armour is taking a beating, then rotate around and show them the starboard side! Hide behind a friendly capital ship’s shields; warp into and out of the fray, launch fighters, lay mines, and so much more.

Key Features


  • Real time gameplay with a seamless zoom from a grand strategic view to a close-up action view
  • Choose from 8 beautifully rendered alien races or design your own to lead into the stars; interact, negotiate and forge allegiances on your way to victory
  • Expand your empire and colonize all kinds of planets, terraform and populate them and build them into specialized centers of trade or industry
  • Research and unlock an array of technologies to improve your military and industrial capabilities
  • Control your ships with classic real time strategy commands or jump into the fray by taking direct ‘arcade’ control of any ship in your empire
  • Create your unique ship designs with the modular ship design system and determine your own fate in battle
  • Create custom fleet formations and set rules of engagement in the easy-to-use fleet editor
  • Steal technologies, incite rebellions, or rob your enemies blind with a rich agent-based espionage system
  • Deploy ground troops from orbit to defeat the enemies’ last planetary defenses in ground combat
  • Explore the rich universe that comes alive with random events, remnant elements, hidden treasures, deep space terrors and late-game threats

There were a lot of nice features about StarDrive. It looked like it could become something great, and after playing it for a while I left it, knowing that I'd come back to a featured and developed game.

I was wrong. I don't know about all of the drama that's associated with this game and the developer, but I know that development of this game has ground to a halt. It's not worth the >£20 tag, and honestly there are probably well-supported games out there that deliver this kind of experience.

It's called Stellaris. It's everything Stardrive has and does it 100x better AND has a ton of more content even though it's a paradox strategy game WITHOUT DLC WHORING yet.

I reccommend you get STELLARIS and AVOID this unfinished game.

For its time, it was decent enough. The ship design was ok, the warfare was ok, was fun enough for me to not hate it completely. But now when you compare Stardrive to its current competition (Such as Stellaris, Space Engineers, or I would also recommend Sins of a Solar Empire) hopefully its obvious that you should avoid this. There are so many features, bugs, overall defects, and the games been out for years. Save your 6$ and go elsewhere.

This game had major potential, too bad the developer doesn't. Zerosum games is dead and will never be perceived other than a deadbeat dev. GOOD dev's don't abandon their games.

Doesn't manage to integrate the RTS and 4x grand strategy parts well. Feels off in menues and with handling. Chopped together by stealing many ideas from many places, but not balancing them well into one whole.

this has the potential to be a very very good game, however the devs have given up on the game and left it in a very buggy state.

The game itself has issues with
-loading assets,
-AI getting stuck in loops
-Poor AI
-Crashing
-Freezing
-Ship/Fleet Designer breaks in strange ways

If Iceberg Interactive were to return to the game and fix all of the bugs. i would recomend this to anyone, but its unplayable at this state. and thats depressing for the pottential it has.

Do you have a dream of conquering a galaxy of sophisticated races, including the pride humans and music playing plants? Then you have almost achieved your goal, it's only a click away!

Stardrive is a massive 4X game. You will begin your game with chosing perks for your race (Yes you can be wolves), and then venture forth out in the galaxy. Everything is real time, so you can fight at multiple places in the galaxy at the same time and just zoom in and out on the locations for easy multitasking your way to victory.

The best thing about everything with stardrive is the ship workshop. You can design a vast amount of different ships. You want a cruiser with superior missile force. Stardrive has it. Superior laser force. Stardrive has it. Large carrier ship carrying a large amount of fighters, stardrive has it! There was this time that one of my ships got stuck with damaged engines drifting around in the vast lonely space. I raced to the workshop and designed a support ship for the rescue of the lonely ship. That was amazing. Felt like a real rescue operation (Yes I am taking this game seriously).

There is some flaws about the game though. Worst thing is the sometimes stupid AI. Ask a race for peace when you are bombing their capital back to the stone age. "You ask for peace, you shall find none here".. Also the AI kinda get stuck and stop colonizing and just hangs around producing one ship at the time, which then makes an easy enemy to kill (I experienced this in hard mode).

This game is really worth your money for 7.49 euroes. In my opinion its also worth the original price (But hey, that's me).

It's a great game for a young space adventurer like you! Go out there and build an amazing ship and reck everything in flying in your way. But hey, be nice to the Pollops, they are always just so nice to you! (Always recking them in the end anyways though!) xD

This review was marked as "abusive" by the Developer, was taken off of the review page between March 8th 2014 through to March 11th 2014. Pathetic.

This was a total waste of my $29.99, I bought it under the pretense of Multiplayer being released first major patch after final release from my Friend who recommended the game. The Developer has come to the conclusion that by changing the Engine and flushing out his original Idea for a game, that he can now make ANOTHER game and wants money for it, the full game that he originally wanted to make but couldn't. This is the result made by a very poor decision long ago to use the wrong Engine <Sunburn> for his project, an engine that Microsoft dropped and everyone in the know knew was a dead-end, months before Zero decided to release the game as Final. Nothing about the programme changed between final beta release and the first day of Final Release in April.
The above mentioned Steam Group is a place for free discussion about Stardrive, and its Developer that You are going to purchase a beta, abandoned game from. The Developer will finish it on his whim alone, that could be years or decades. These are all direct from the developer, but sadly I can't direct you to the correct site to see them, he has, or has had his Minions, delete threads full of direct quotes from Zero you simply wouldn't believe if I wrote them here, thinking I was a Troll. I hope this shows I gave 90+ hours trying to play this game, and never completing 1 game. Buy this game if you like someone lying to you all the time, some do I suppose.

This game was never actually finished before it was abandoned by the developer so that he could start work on a second game. The store page continued to promote features that were never implemented for months after it was clear that they were never going to be added to the game. Making matters worse, the developer has demonstrated extremely bad judgment when interacting with customers that shows a lack of professionalism. This combined with a loyal but rabid fan base make this game a toxic property that is best avoided.

Bought the game in the early days for full price, was listed as Multiplayer and promised many features. Multiplayer was NEVER added and none of these features we were told would be implemented, made it in to the game. The Developer secretly worked on the second game behind the scenes, using our money to fund his work rather than finishing the first one and then even having the cheek to Kickstart the second game for even more money? Only to then sell this second game back to us again, at full price! Complete rip-off. Now we're left with nothing but a broken demo. I will NOT be buying the second game and funding such a dirty, cheap money making scheme and I'd advise that others do the same. The only way these developers will learn NOT to cheat their customers, is if they have no custom. As bad as EA as far as I'm concerned.

Sometimes you find a game for $1.00 on HumbleBundle and think why not, I'll give it a shot. What's the worst that could happen? It sucks and you're out a dollar? Don't be a fool. Listen to me, I used to be like you...naive. I paid the dollar, positively gitty at my thrifty yet philanthropic purchase, but I discovered there are far worse fates than not liking the game. Oh yes, much to my dismay, I learned you could absolutely LOVE the game. Specifically, I learned that someone, some magical gameweaver of a developer, had somehow discovered a way to craft all of my 4x RTS dreams into one perfect game.

Imagine having all this only to find out after hours of gameplay that the mystical Dev had just M. Night Shyamalan'ed your ♥♥♥ by abandoning the game deep in development, leaving gamebreaking glitches unpatched, and giggling all the way to the bank with your hopes and dreams. Now there will forever be a void in my heart where the finished version of this game should be. I would've rather spent my dollar on paying someone to kick me in the balls. At least that paid would go away eventually.

To be fair, I'm only whining because I love what this game could've been. Wasting that much potential should be a crime. The finished, patched version would have been one of the best 4x games of all time. Unfortunately this game was abandoned to begin development on a sequel that will be turn-based, not real time, and therefore more of a completely different game than a sequel. While I love turn-based strategy, the RTS version of this game is the one I wanted and now I will never be able to play a polished version of it. As such, I simply can not recommend it.

Edit #2: I'll just leave this here.

http://steamcommunity.com/groups/SDVC

An unofficial StarDrive group, where discussion is open and not censored. The Steam forum is pretty heavily moderated and the developer has a habit of deleting threads and banning people left and right before and during a big sale, so this is where people go to talk about the game however they like and not risk having their threads deleted because they didn't like the game.

***

I bought this game when it was in Early Access and... I thought it was amazing. Full of promises and ideas. Back then, the developper was promising updates pretty much left and right. Multiplayer was to be added to the game. Rare resources, laying mines, better diplomacy, being able to make joint operations with allies; all of these things were to be added to the game... But none -- NONE -- were implemented. The game you can buy right now is very much the same game I bought in Early Access, minus a few bugs. Hell, some core features such as the freighters are still buggy...

So, that being said, is this a good game? Well, it's an okay game. I spent several hours on it so obviously it's not totally terrible. But the thing is, most of these hours (I'd say two third of them -- yes, that much) was trying mods and messing around waiting for the content update to come. When the Developper announced that he screwed up and decided the game was done and could not be updated anymore because of engine limitations, I stopped playing altogether.

To make up for it, the owners of StarDrive will get a discount on his next title and access to some kind of multiplayer mini-game is going to be free. The thing is : his next game is going to be a turn-based strategy game. I bought a real-time strategy game. His next game is going to get as close to a MoO2 clone as he can. Good things for the fans, I guess, but that's not what I bought.

So, to sum things up: this game is half-finished, features are lacking, it lacks polish and is very, very rough around the edges and is developped by one of the worst indy dev ever as far as PR and "I care for my customers" are involved. There are better games out there to spend your money on.

But hey, that's just my opinion.

***

Edit #1: the multiplayer mini-game has been abandoned as well. Yes, that is yet another fail to put on Zero Sum Games resume. Also, that discount I was talking about? The one the owners of StarDrive will get? That will just be a Steam coupon with an expiration date. Great, eh? Way to tell your customers to hurry it up or screw you, Zero. Way to go indeed.

This game had a ton of potential but was abandoned by the developer for greener pastures after he decided it would be good to start on a sequel while charging full price to everyone (including the people who have bought this unfinished project). It was initially released with a ton of bugs and still has many things that have yet to be fully fleshed out much less finished in any considerable degree. The ship designer and the battles that rarely take place are the only positives to take out of this game.

The diplomacy part of the game is very shallow indeed. With races declaring war on you with little motivation beyond your empire's progression crossing a line set by their predetermined level of aggressiveness. The same goes with positive interaction. It's very much a game of watching a bar go up or down to get them to do something you want to do.

Empire building is also shallow and unfinished. There is almost no internal management other than building a shallow level of building sets that make all your colonies resemble one another after only a colony or two. Rebellion takes place when your treasury drops below a certain level and only in this manner. Civilization 2 has more in depth internal management than this title.

Military matters are hampered by two things: The lack of any meaningful artificial intelligence and the small tech tree present in the game. The tech tree is the smallest tree I've seen in a 4x game (and smaller than some RTS games like Rise of Nations or even Age of Empires). The AI assembles the same, tired fleet makeup and then throws it at you. This means pretty much every single game plays out the same way regardless of the galaxy size. The one saving grace in enemy behavior is that the game saves your custom ship designs and then uses them against you in subsequent games should you choose another race to play as. I would love to see other 4x games incorporate this feature into their titles so I'm faced with much more difficult fleet makeups since they were designed by myself or other players who post their designs for others to use.

All in all, I'm very disappointed in not only the way this game turned out, but the developer's behavior on the steam forums once people heard he was abandoning any serious development on the game on an interview. He would ban people who warned others about the state of development and has had meltdowns on multiple gaming forums when confronted about the issue. Do not give your money to this studio. Other 4x's like Galactic Civilizations II or Distant Worlds do this genre much more of a service.

The developer of this game calls the game finished, I find that hilarious and misleading! The game has a good concept but I'd warn everyone to stay away. He's currently working on a new game and left this one to rot.
