Zakoupit Lords of the Black Sun

 

Informace o hře

Lords of the Black Sun is an epic, complex, dense, turn-based 4X PC strategy game, set in deep space.

Take command of one race to join the struggle for supremacy in the galaxy. As the leader of your empire you are tasked with exploring the stars, colonizing new worlds, managing your empire and conquering whoever dares to oppose you.

The galaxy is full of secrets and dangers: Discover ancient ruins and artifacts, repel or befriend pirates, promote a general to guide your fleets to victory. Concoct complex plots with your allies or use your intelligence services to uncover weak spots on that threatening empire whose leader has vowed to destroy you.

Make sure to keep your population happy or be prepared to face protests against your rule, or in a worst case scenario, rebel factions within your empire.

Only the mightiest rulers can prevail in the depths of space. Are you up to the task of becoming a Lord of the Black Sun?

Key features:

  • 8 major races each with their own ship designs, technologies, unique traits and unique abilities, meaning playing with each race is a different challenge and offers new ways to approach the game.
  • Big, living universe: In addition to the major powers, independent races and pirate clans also claim the galaxy as their residence; their existence can be an annoyance, or a blessing if you can take advantage of them.
  • Deep economical and political layer: War isn’t the only way to weaken your rivals. Diplomacy, inteligence and trade can be one of many powerful tools that, if used properly, can be very effective as well.
  • Tactical Turn based combat.
  • Create and customize your own ship designs.
  • Generals: These unique and powerful units evolve as they battle and if used well can be the difference between defeat and victory.
  • Randomly generated universe, tech tree and units: You will never play the same game twice.
  • Empire shattering: Unrest might lead rebels to start a civil war which in turn might lead to the creation of a new, independent empire that might grow to rival your own.
  • Plotting: Secretly finance a war against your rivals in order to weaken them or prepare a surprise joint war along with your allies in a bid to destroy that frighteningly fast growing empire.
  • Human-like AI that doesn’t cheat and plays by the same rules as human players, while presenting a constant challenge.
  • Play Multiplayer and Hotseat online via LAN or IP/internet.

A very disappointing addition to the 4x Space Strategy game genre. I love the genre, and it seemed to look very nice, but the actual product was not as good as expected from the description, screenshots, and video. It seems to lack polish and actually seems somewhat unfinished, with plenty of bugs and lacklustre dev support.

On to the one pro I've found so far for the game... the hex-based, turn-based space combat is actually a quite interesting addition to the 4x space genre, and one that I quite like. Admittedly, it can turn into a bit of a chore once the participants have large fleets, if you can get to that stage... but I do like the idea.

However... the game is plagued with a multitude of crashes, which makes any sort of progress, especially in multiplayer, very frustrating. Even when you're lucky enough to not encounter a Crash to Desktop, the gameplay itself is not quite up to scratch. The tech tree and units are somewhat disappointing, and there are many better games out there if you want to customise your own space ships as part of your plans for galactic domination - which brings me to my next point - the galactic maps are pretty sub-par. It doesn't look nice, the travel is boring (there are no restrictions or wormholes or gravity wells or any other mechanic) between systems. There is an arbitrary limit on which systems you can travel though, in an expanding circle, but I have not been able to figure out how that works, but apart from that, you can travel to any system without any changes.

And the economic and diplomatic options are both also disappointing. This combos with the 8 "different races" you can play as or against - they don't look or feel different, and the bonuses and "unique generals" aren't very noticeable. In combination with the lack of options, and a lack of descriptions of the various pre-game setup options... it just doesn't make for a compelling experience.

Especially for the asking price, you can do so much better if you are after a 4x space strategy game.

*Sigh*
I wanted to play a 4X game with a futuristic space-setting so I tried this. (Also named "Starlords"?)

This seems like an earlier version of Endless Space without the better graphics and user-friendly interface.
I found the ship-design and fleet battles much too simplistic.

There also seemed to be a few glitches/bugs when many fleets were given orders at once.

Still... I played it twice to get all the achievements and to give it a decent chance before I wrote criticism.
(That 15 hours I should have been doing something else...)

My opinion: get ENDLESS SPACE instead... a much better game that Lords Of The Black Sun seems to be just a rough, early design of.

First of all, I cannot believe that STEAM is still selling this unmitigated piece of crap.

I'm not sure if the developer *ever* actually intended to complete the game, or if this was a simple cash grab right from the start. Either way, my suggestion would be to run, don't walk, as far away from this... I can't even call it a game, as I've never actually ever even gotten it to start up for me.

Anyway, you get the picture. If you choose to pick this up anyway, on your own head be it. You have been warned...

highly recommend that you do not buy this game. it is inherintly unstable, and crashes frequently. i only have about 1.4 hours of gameplay because i can;t get the game to funciton for more than about 5 minutes at a time.
Also, the advertisements look beautiful, and are beautiful lies. the reality of the game is tiny icon, sone ok graphics is you zoom in so far that you can;t see anything relevant, and lots and lots of text boxs. it's basically like playing a boardgame with texts instead of taking to people.

DO NOT BUY.
I have a total of 19 min on the game and it was spent crashing and getting nowere.
It is a shame thoguht beacuse the game looked like it was going to be really good...

This is a case were the creators of the game took the money and ran, the game is not compleate.
