“While it doesn’t have the flashy, immediate appeal of a conventional Pinata-popper like Diablo, Drox Operative provides the greater gift of a world in which the action part of ARPG has consequences, as does inaction. It’s the advancement of the genre that so many people have given up on searching for and Soldak have been providing it for years.”

Drox Operative is a starship action RPG with warring alien races, fierce space battles, a dynamic, evolving galaxy, and co-op multiplayer for Windows and Mac.

Eons ago the Drox ruled the galaxy through their mighty Operatives. These elite starship captains were trained to accomplish the impossible at whatever cost necessary. Whether employing stealth or brute force, they were always deadly. Using these Operatives, the Drox built a starlane system for quick travel amongst the stars, colonized and conquered millions of planets, and ruled the galaxy with an iron grip for over 100,000 years. Eventually realizing their Operatives were a threat, they attempted to assassinate all of them. They failed. The following Galactic Civil War was devastating.

Thousands of years later, the Drox are extinct, but the secretive Drox Operative guild lives on. They have learned their lesson though: loyalty to any one race is foolish. They now work for whoever can pay. And pay they do! Empires might span hundreds of planets and thousands of ships, but when a critical task arises, they still turn to an Operative.

In the new space race, the major races are scouting, colonizing, and expanding, trying to take over the galaxy by diplomacy, technology, war, or any other means their scheming minds can contemplate.

As a Drox Operative it's NOT your job to manage all of those annoying people, build thousands of buildings, play nice with your enemies, or balance the budget. It IS your job to pick the winning side and maybe even help them conquer the galaxy if you're being nice, more importantly though is to rake in as many credits as possible, well that and build the coolest, deadliest ship in the known universe. Not many screw with an Operative captaining a Dreadnaught!

  • Explore a dynamic and evolving galaxy
  • Explore a unique sector of the galaxy in every game, with different "monsters", ship components, quests, and even races
  • Fight in the galactic war between the various alien races
  • Battle hundreds of different enemy starships
  • Build the coolest and deadliest starship in the galaxy
  • Outfit your ship with thousands of components and crew
  • Adventure with your friends with co-op multiplayer

Great little Diablo meets Space RPG. You fly around in a ship, earn levels, find and equip all different types of items and weapons, and kill lots of baddies.

My only complaint is the game gets pretty boring after a while. The scenery never really changes, you fly around in a circle map/area that has randomized planets and such scattered about. Warping between areas just brings you to a new circle random area. The background colors change slightly but the content doesn't.

Fun game and worth the price for a few hours of play. I recommend playing Hardcore as there really isn't any other way to play these types of games!

I highly recommend this game. It may not be much to look at but it's one of those games where every galaxy you play has a different little story to go along with it. I love being able to observe (and meddle in) the wider politics of the game world while slaughtering bad guys ARPG style. It makes the game into more than just an excercise in loot gathering.The other thing I find important that this game has is an insane amount of character customization and different ship parts which unlock all kinds of cool abilities. There arwe an almost infinite amount of possibilities for different builds you could do.

One thing that's either a strength or a weakness of the game depending on how you look at it is the game is pretty unforgiving especially when you haven't designed your character and ship very well. It is the sort of game where everything can be going along fine and then suddenly you are swarmed by more than you can handle. Since this game saves pretty much everything and never lets you go back and reload a save older than the last thing you did death has some nasty consequences even on softcore difficulty, it makes it very satisfying when you find a build that finally is able to survive most encounters but it get get frustrating as well.

Bottom line: If the concept of this game looks appealing to you at all - get it. It's the best ARPG I've ever played.

At the beginning, it is quite overwhelmingly complex. But after you understood it all, it's quite addictive.
There is tons of equipment and races to choose from, which makes every playthrough really unique. And I gotta tell you, even if the graphics don't look so great on the screenshots, there can be quite awesome battles going on, which will fill your screen pretty nicely.

Only thing that bothers me, is the sound design: The weapons sound... old/weird, the music isn't really fitting and the thruster sound of the ship can get quite annoying aswell. I suggest to get some music going in the background and then play away.

I dumbed almost 5 hours in my first time playing this and I don't regret a single second. One of the most enjoyable games I've played in quite a while.

Ofcourse it's recommended to get some friends to play with, but no one wanted to play with me (*sadface*) so I can't really say how the co-op works and if its any more fun (which, I presume, it is).

Sorry for the butchered english, I'm not a native English-speaker (I don't think that's even a real word...).

Drox Operative is an excellent and unique ARPG, well worth your money.

The Good:
-Unique character development
-Extensive variety of builds and ships, you can do pretty much anything you can come up with, and succeed.
-Random area generation, each playthrough is different.
-Built in mechanics to encourage you to play each round differently, without penalizing you for playing the way you want to play. (For example, the Drox guild will issue you a quest to save one race, destroy another, protect a specific alliance, etc, and you earn extra rewards for compliance.)
-The graphics are no where near as bad as the screenshots would lead you to believe.
-Easy to respec, making it almost imposible to permanently screw up a character.
-Fun factor: this is one of those games where you look up and realize hours have dissapeared, and your wife is standing behind you nagging.


The Bad:
-Learning curve can be a bit steep, with spikes in difficulty.
-Drox Guild quests can often encourage you to do the Exact opposite of what you've been working towards.
-Easy to screw up a character, forcing you to respec.

This game is quite unexpectedly AWESOME. It's a little confounding at first how the galaxy events stream by while you're still figuring out your ship, but once you get used to it, start meddling, and kicking ♥♥♥ - it's epic.

I've been playing this game for a few years now, but it has only just become available on Steam.

Don't let the rather unattractive visuals fool you (admittedly the screenshots look just terrible): this is the best action RPG out there. Period.

Drox Operative is actually and ARPG set inside a 4X game being played out by AI's. You can influence events in a myriad of ways. You create a ship, generate a galaxy which will have some number of races playing in it, and you can win by allying yourself with the victors, or if you are particularly bloodthirsty you can just ♥♥♥♥ everything in sight until you accumulate the points for a "Fear" victory. Afterwards you can retain your ship in a newly generated galaxy. It is so satisfying to play an RPG in a "living" universe rather than mindlessly grinding through the same old dungeon with randomly spawning enemies until you reach some boss.

One of the great innovations is that the modules with which you fit your ship do not go into specific slots, but instead there are "hi, mid, low" slots (much like in EVE). So, if you want 4 lasers, you can do it. If you want 5 reactors to give you very rapid cap recharge, you can do it. You want 5 engines so your ship zips around the map? You can do it. Are you a Romulan who fantasizes about redundant cloaking devices? Well, you get the idea.

There certainly seem to be no other RPG's out there like Drox, so if you like space and you like RPG's it's a must-buy, but there is some room for improvement: In my opinion the visual appeal of the game is non-existant, and staring at it for hours gets rather drab, but rest assured the great gameplay will keep you doing just that. Though there is large array of loot you will find, I certainly feel that they could add many more modules which do a much wider variety of different things.

Anyway, for $10 or $20, you certainly shouldn't regret this buy.
