"Space Diablo, but with consequences."

Рецензии

“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

Я поставлю положительный отзыв, но не все тут так однозначно.

Сперва несколько удивлял слоган для этой игры "Дьябло, но с последствиями". Но в целом аналогия уместна. Да, это космос, но гринда тут дофига и больше. И это первая для меня проблема. Прокачав целых 15 уровней в своих долгих скитаниях, я всего только открыл 3 новых слота в своем корабле (вначале доступно 9). И могу только мечтать о далеких днях, когда можно будет в свой корабль запихнуть более разнообразное оборудование. Если оно не еще не проржавеет на складе к тому времени.

Интересна попытка сделать мир живым. Разные расы воюют и миряться, просят о помощи, выдают квесты и т.п. Можно лично проследить за колонизационным кораблем и защитить его от чьих-либо атак. Однако все это происходит в рилтайме, от чего не очень-то хорошо воспринимается. Я могу вести трудный бой с оравой врагов, и мне просто не до того что кто-то где-то в это же время куда-то выслал дипломата и он там что-то сотворил. Мне вообще не особо понятны мотивы других рас, а уж в рилтайме все это обычно воспринимается как череда случайных событий.

И наконец мне не нравится роль игрока - представитель некой гильдии наемников. Сама идея - быть маленьким винтиком в большом живом мире - интересна, но не найдено надлежащее для нее воплощение.

Ну и есть одна очень неожиданная особенность у этой игры, странная для полетов по галактике в качестве наемника. Игрок никогда не может выбрать для себя корабль. Его нельзя купить. Корабль тут линейно прокачивается. Да, оснастить его можно по-разному, но сам корабль игрок заменить на другой не может вообще.

И все возвращается обратно к прокачке. В ней главная суть игры, а вовсе не налаживание взаимоотношений в этом зоопарке, хотя порой и этим приходится заниматься. ЭКСПА - вот главный двигатель этой игры. И в этом ее основная проблема для меня.

Ever played a space strategy game where you have to colonize planets, trade and maintain a diplomatic relationship with other races and take care of your own people while doing so? Ever wondered what it would be like to be that random event that caused citizens to rebel, technology to be sold to your enemy, a race that you would like to be a friend but just won't listen because some element in the game says 'Hell no!'?

Well in this game you can; This is a top-down space shooter, but around the player several computer players are playing out a space strategy game. You can befriend them, you can fight them, you can trade with them, you can support them in their war or colonization efforts, you are a Drox Operative. And the other races know that to have a Drox Operative on your side is the path to victory.

The graphics are great and the player is allowed a reasonable range of customization to make it his/her own. Musical score and sounds a pretty good, as is the general feel of the game. I did have some problems with the keys though, and understanding what the game was about in the first place, but after 15 mins of just diving in head first I found it surprisingly easy to understand. As for the keys, would like a weapon group to be used for weapons; The only weapon that fires when pressing the mouse is weapon no. 1, although in all fairness I haven't been looking for it very hard, its probably in there somewhere.

You can only have 1 ship (per Operative / Save slot ) and it is a persistant ship (and crew), meaning it carries over from one game into the other. A bit confusing is a game being called a 'Sector', which from what I understand is a galaxy, which happens to consist of...sectors...ya... Anywho, you can fully customize your ship to be a fighter, bomber, trader, colony vessel, or any combination you may think of. It grows in class as you grow in experience (and award points to a particular skill) opening more slots in your ship to install equipment in.

All in all an original idea realised; A gem in any original gamers collection.

So...I will make this short. This game is a cross-over between an x4 space sim and escape velocity, which are my favorite games...and this has it both. Awesome!

Basically you are a freelancer in a x4 space rts, not controlling any empire but influencing all of them while making a profit.
Great fun, great replayability, this is a really deep game - the price is well deserved.

Also, buy the DLC right away, it adds a lot of content and makes the game even better :)

Отличная игра, жаль они не продают expansion pack здесь, с радостью приобрету. Не смотря на простоту игры, захватывает с головой, особенно в компании друга. Правда поиграть по интернету не удается в силу каких то проблем с поратми, но хамачи всех спасет.

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.
