    Parkan 2 tried to create a 3D space exploration game with planetery combat,space dogfights and political aspects. This is what I call a holy grain of space games if it can be done right .

    Unfortunetly clearly 1C did not have experiance to pull this off . This game is the bare minimum of what we want from it .It is playable . However the overall half-♥♥♥♥♥ design makes it feel like they run out of money or just got lazy .

    Unlike 2D Space Rangers 2 this game is striped of all the style and atmosphere that made Space Rangers great .

    Saying all that I have to give them creadit for trying something so ambitious .

    This game isn't horrible but you have to be open minded and forgive some of the flaws .

    6/10

    I bought into this game based solely on it's concept. I want to love this game so much, it has, at least in theory, everything I want in a space game. Spaceships that you can walk around in, planets you can visit, multiple factions you can join, a free roaming (but sometimes limited for story reasons) sandbox universe... It even has in-ship fighting where you can get boarded by enemies or board enemy spacecraft to comandeer it yourself.

    The game is a few years old, and the mileage doesn't give it any compliments. It has aged, and it hasn't aged well. It most likely wasn't even very visual-heavy back when it was first released back in 2007 either. But that can be forgiven. The real problem with this game is how the awesome concept is being executed. It's executed poorly. I walk around, doing stuff, going, "Ah, wow, this would have been cool if they had made it like that," or "this is kind of amazing, I wish they had expanded on that" etc. Also, the planets and stations feel copy pasted and empty, defeating the purpose of being able to visit them anyway.

    In short, though it has many features, none of them feel fleshed out, and some are flat out stupid in their lack of polish. The story isn't anything to write home about either, possibly due to poor translation and sub par voice acting. Want to spend 5-8 hours tops fooling around in a semi open sandbox space sim thingy? It's 5 Euros or your regional equivalent. Is it worth it? Your call. I bought it, played it for a bit, kinda liked it, it was average. But I left it feeling unsatisfied. I would recommend waiting for another game that does this but better.

    Pros:
    Great concept
    A few hours mindless fun

    Cons:
    Poorly executed concepts
    It ain't no looker
    Feels empty

    This game is so cool, so I even bought steam version, while I had DRM free ones - still dont regret, this game might seem to be old but it has a great story which will suck you in after first 10 minutes of playing.

    - is a Sci-fi game

    This game feels very unpolished. You will get lost, figuring out what to do. Has potential to do a lot.. but badly wasted opportunity to excel...
