I tried hard to like this game. I really did.
So, the basics of the game are as advertised. Build a ship using a variety of parts (the higher the level, the more you unlock) and fight.
Things break down pretty fast though. First, there is a cheat to get yourself to maximum level virtually instantly. (Check the Community Hub for details.) In fact, you apparently need this cheat because any other players out there are also max level, and if you want your ship to be competitive you need the best parts.
Single player mode (set up your own server and fill it with bots) exists...but really the game is supposed to shine in multiplayer. The problem is there's no such critter. There are only a handful of public servers/maps, and the most players I've ever seen on at one time are two.
In the end, there's no value here. There are plenty of games out there where you can upgrade your soldier/fighter/spaceship, with a cheaper point of entry, and more players. Nice idea, but if three months after release (as I write this) the community doesn't exist, it's not going to.
