Smugglers 5 - Update V. 1.5

Smugglers 5: Secession and Smugglers 5: Invasion have both received an update today to version 1.5.

Smugglers 5 is the fifth instalment in the turn-based science-fiction space trading game series. Will you be a greedy trader, an ambitious fleet pilot or a ruthless pirate? Board enemy ships, manage factories, conquer star systems and forge your own galactic empire - ultimately, your actions will have an impact on a galactic scale.

Smugglers 5 V. 1.5:

- New feature: In a spaceport bar you can now meet a fellow who sells you an amnesia drug for 3 million credits. If you accept, you can redistribute all your skill points as you see fit.
- Balance change: The chance of successfully using a special skill during a special combat event has been rebalanced. For most skills it has been increased.
- Balance change: Chance of asteroid and mine fields doing damage has been decreased.
- Balance change: Effect of energy flux has been doubled. It now quadruplicates (!) the damage bonus from energy cage I or II.
- Balance change: During the special combat event "Ambush" the chance to use the confusion of the attack to escape has been reduced.

The galaxy is at war - the Federation, the Coalition, the Outer Rim systems and the criminal Syndicate battle for control. It's a dangerous life for a pilot on the front lines, but it can also be a lucrative one - are you an honest trader, or does smuggling illegal goods sound more profitable? Will you join the war effort for your faction, set up your own empire or simply explore the galaxy?

The fifth instalment in the long-running Smugglers series features a completely revised turn-based combat system and a range of new ships to fly, as well as a host of exciting features:

  • Explore the galaxy through a fast turn-based travel and combat system
  • 4 factions; 6 professions with new, unique skill trees; 100+ different skills and a revised skill system
  • 30+ spaceships and encounters ranging from fighters up to battleships, cruise missiles and star bases

  • Manage a crew, board enemy ships, become Admiral and command whole fleets
  • Plunder planets and pirate outposts, conquer space systems and even rule your own empire!
  • Supply and demand based trading with the storyline and campaign influencing prices
  • More than 80,000 words of interactive non-linear storylines (that´s about the size of two novels)
  • Advanced text generation technology and new planet exploration short stories make every game different.
  • Marry a beautiful wife and have children
  • Optional compatibility mode to allow blind players to enjoy the game

I tremendously enjoyed this game! I think it is one of the most underrated games on Steam. The series dates back to 2000 or 2001 and each game in the series has been more and more improved. It´s very polished (dev still making regular updates and listens to community) and has a great depth. I cannot understand some of the reviews here. I think they have been fooled by the easy accessibility and did not play long enough to get to the advanced features. In the base game you can fly everything from a fighter up to battleships. I don´t understand how one review can say they aren´t in the game. Also each profession has some unique skills, for example a trader can flee the battle and has special skills to defend and delay combat until reinforcements (which other game simulates reinforcements??) arrive or a pirate has special abilities focused on making sure exactly this doesn´t happen.

If you are looking for a very addictive 2D version of Elite, Pirates or Freelancer, don´t look no further. However if you prefer 3D or very good graphics, you have to look somewhere else.

I picked it up thinking it would be phone esq type of a game, and it is. But, it has some surprising depth to the gameplay. Now, if only the dev would add in some abilities to adjust graphics to fit a regular computer monitor, it would be a nice little way to kill 20 minutes here or there.

I am going to keep my review in the style of a little "log book". I hope you like it. If you do, please upvote!

Okay, here is my "log book" report:

Hour 1:

Cons: Graphics look a bit overly simplistic, but I didn´t had a single crash. I found a small bug or two, but nothing really important. A few spelling mistakes.

Pro: When browsing the profession selection, I cannot remember when I felt such an excitement the last time. You can choose among a broad range of professions from trader to pirate. Each
one has different starting skills, a different skill tree depending on the character and this is even more modified depending on the faction you choose. That´s cool! You do not need to
play a guy too (although I did), but can choose to play a female protagonist.

With most professions (not all) you start with a small ship without jump engines. The next 30 minutes you can explore the starting system and try some easier missions in order to get the money to buy a bigger ship with engines capable of leaving the first star system. If you start as a fleet trader or officer, you already start with a bigger ship and can skip this first episode.

Hour 2:

Cons: see above.

Pro: This is fun. I´ve been raiding through the ranks (you get a uniform and can tag medals etc. on it) and got a destroyer class spaceship. I´ve hired a crew and now I am going to try boarding and capturing other ships! Yeeehay!

Hour 5:

Cons: see above.

Pro: I am trying to get a battleship, which appears to be the biggest ship you can get in the base game.

Hour 7:

Cons: see above.

Pro: Done. I have conquered my first star systems and I am about to finish the fleet officer career. Cannot wait to try playing as a pirate and conquer the galaxy all for myself!

(to be continued - still great ;) )

At first, the game seems incredibly complex. There are many ships, faction politics, a trade mechanic with a black market aspect, tons of skills and abilities, and a large map.

After a couple hours of playing, you'll realize that everything that looked good is actually poorly executed.

The combat plays out pretty much the same every time regardless of your ship and skills (which are badly balanced). You have almost no control over the combat. Everything feels very random and there is no strategy apart from picking the best skill out of the random pile of them that the game gives you every turn. Not that any of this matters. There are a few mid-level ships that are undeniably better than everything else. After a little experimenting, you’ll have a ship that can’t lose unless the random number generator has something against you.

The faction politics are almost pointless. You only need to get friendly with the factions if you want amnesty for committing crimes. You won’t be committing any crimes unless you have a combat oriented ship. If you have a tough ship, you generally don't need amnesty. It's a self-defeating cycle of uselessness.

The trade system could not be more boring. You go to a system that sells something cheap. Buy it, fly to somewhere where it is expensive, sell it, rinse, and repeat until you can afford a ship with a bigger cargo hull. Then you get the exciting experience of doing exactly what you were doing before but in larger quantities. The black market is the exact same, except you might have to a do a little more fighting.

The skill tree is incredibly frustrating as it forces you to buy a number of useless skills before you can get to the good ones. The useless skills will then fill up your queue during combat with abilities that you will likely never use and make your life harder. No, you can't disable abilities that you have already unlocked.

Apart from the differing commodity prices, there is no real difference between the systems. The factions constantly fight, pirates are everywhere except for the starting areas, and random piles of money float through space, making it far more profitable to aimlessly bounce around between planets than to actually play the game.

The most frustrating aspect of the game by far is the class system. At the start of a campaign, you have to choose a faction and a player class. The classes determine the skills that you can pick. Only certain classes can unlock the skill to buy a business while others can do things like invade systems. The class system only exists to force you into multiple playthroughs and extend playtime in order to see all of the content. The irony here is that there isn't much content to begin with.

TL;DR: You’ll have more fun with a free flash game. Don’t buy this unless you hate yourself.

10/10 have not had so much fun smuggling, pillaging and in general being a bad guy before (of course you could be a good guy too). Behind the simple visuals and the easy to learn rules and interface, there is a lot of content hidden. If you think this is a simple game, look again! This game is amazing!

Han Solo, over and out.
