Note that this review is written and submitted for a currently unfinished game(as of September 10th 2014), and that anything therein is subject to change.
Kinetic Void is a pretty decent looking space simulator with a lot of potential and a small but dedicated development team. I figure that the easiest way to review the game is to just list off a few of the more notable pros an cons as they are at the time of writing this review.
-The game has a fairly robust ship creator/editor that allows you to make some really interesting and complex stuff if you sit down and practice a bit
-The player has a good amount of control over various aspects of both their ship and their way of spacefaring. Controls are fluid, weapons are responsive, and the game supports both keyboard and mouse control of the player's ship.
-It was interesting to learn that ship designs you save can potentially be used by NPCs, including enemies.
-The development team takes their time with updates, but is extremely consistent and dedicated in their work. New content might take a while, but I've never felt that the game has been abandoned by the devs like so many other early access titles.
-Being early-access, there are still a number of bugs and other assorted issues to be ironed out. You're accepting that fact by purchasing the game in an incomplete state
-Space is almost realistically a bit too empty a lot of the time. I'd really like to see the number and variety of structures in each system increased
-Currently the variety of parts in the game is fairly large, but all parts are locked to one of five size classes, meaning that it can sometimes be difficult to make attractive ships, mainly smaller craft like fighters and interceptors.
-The game has little in the way of missions or goals. You're dropped in and expected to find your way around the vast expanse of space on your own. This will most likely be fixed later, but hey, that's life, you know?
Overall, I'd recommed this game to a friend if I knew that they were interested in a space sim that will eventually be very in-depth and detailed. Right now the game is still very lacking in features, but I have faith in the dev team to complete Kinetic Void, and the amount of content and bug fixes increases with every update.
