At the dawn of the 22nd century, the conquest of space and the colonization of the solar system is being monopolized by several huge and ambitious mega-corporations. Although extremely delicate and vulnerable, a balance is maintained by these companies.

Just WOW!

I all ready lost hope that I would ever use this words ever but here it is. NEXUS is the best tactical space combat strategy game I EVER played. Yes it has couple of bugs and there are thing or two that they could make better but as concept and following execution of that concept just WOW.

So let me put it together for you. You are commander of group of capital ships (from one up to ten) starting from corvets all the way to battle cruisers. You do not produce you do not collect resources or any of that crap. You have your little fleet and task front of you. Now that seem pretty dull when you say it but once you get trough the controls (strongly sugget to play tutorial) you find out that you can control each subsystem of each ship and that is freeking awesome!
Having limited resouces (means ships) giving this game completly diferent dimension. You will think twice to send your destroyer class against two frigates only to see it blown up. There are no reinforcements there is no help comming and in freezing cold of space noone will hear you scream. You will learn to utilitaze your power creating diversions and new strategies depending from ship to ship. And you will cheer your self for every mauver that put you one step closer to victory.

Now as I did finish all the praises there are as usual some problems as well. Tutorial is ok but still suck. Learnig curve is so steap it puts 90degree angle to shame and menu with hud is ...... well bit chaotic. Graphics are Ok but keep in mind that this was made 2004.

Frankly I still dont understand why the sequel did not come to live or why someone didnt made remake of this beutiful game.

All and all I would sumarise like this. If you like Kerbal space program this is for you, if you like tactical games with anal attention to detail like men of war this is for you, if you like capital ship battles and your secret dream is to be like Commander Bill "Husker" Adama and have your own Battlestar this is for you. If by any chance are so mentaly damaged like me and like all those things you will be in heaven I can promise you that.

This game truly is a gem from the past
Sadly I missed it back in the day und just rediscovered it after the release of the recent patch.
The story is really motivating as I was always looking forward to what was going to happen next!
Yes the gameplay is slow on occasion yet it is a lot of fun to optimise the ships’ equipment for the next mission and try different ship to ship combat tactics during the missions.
The mission objectives are very diverse thus I never felt bored or annoyed by them.
I had a few crashes to desktop but nothing too serious, IIRC about 5 in total, which, compared to the number of missions (26) as well as their length, is quite okay.
So just make sure to save every now and then during each mission and you’re good to go. :) (The game creates an auto-save after each mission)

To sum it up:
If you're into sci-fi space fleet simulation games then you should definitely give this game a try! :)

PS
I played this game on the following system with max settings in FullHD @~100+ FPS:
  • Windows 10 Pro x64
  • Core i7-3630QM
  • 16 GB RAM
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M

Let's face it, these games are not for everybody, but this is one of the best games I have ever played. Homeworld was good, but this is great.

I was so distraught when I learned years ago that they were not going to make a sequel, freaking ♥♥♥♥♥♥ games that are stupid and repetitive get remakes, but tactical space fleet games get crapped on. This is why I don't vote, because great games like this that get ignored get thrown to the wayside and ♥♥♥♥ like CoD and BF get played like crazy, so obviously the majority of people are idiots so your vote is irrelevant.

Endlich! Habe ich mir gedacht... ein cooles Game. Raumschiffe, Flotten... Schiffe bauen, Crew trainieren. Und was kommt dabei heraus? Ein Sche+++ Spiel! Bugs ohne Ende... ich komme kaum über das Tutorial. Waffen funktionieren nicht, machen keinen Schaden, der Scanner ist wirkungslos und das Schiff fliegt überall hin. Nur nicht zum Gegner. WAS FÜR EIN MÜLL!!! Nicht mal im Sale einen Cent wert. Einfach unspielbar. Und da sage mir noch einer Star Drive II wäre berbuggt. Sowas habe ichg noch nicht erlebt.

Falls into the classification of "wanted to like, but..."

Slooooow. Slow slow slow. And this is coming from someone who loves the Homeworld franchise so you know this is some serious slow motion. The dialogue and backstory are actually somewhat intriguing (despite some pretty bad voice-acting from some of the characters), but any interest is lost only a couple missions in when the clunkiness of the interface and the speed of ships and action lingers on while you stare and watch for what feels like forever.

The interface is clean but unhelpful and tiny. Good luck trying to find your next objective or any object that the narration has mentioned if there are more than a couple things out there.

Graphics are serviceable and nice in some ways, but drab.

Most frustrating is that ships don't do what you'd like them to do. Tell them to stop, and they decide to move a little. Tell them to fire artillery and they move away from the enemy and don't seem to do anything.

Couldn't see any way to rebuild lost fighters, which seems incomprehensible.

Overall I was pulled in a bit by the story and atmosphere, but once the missions started my interest faded fast. I didn't play it long but can't find a reason to want to play it again.

I always hate to say that, being a developer myself and knowing that this game must have taken some good effort to create. But it's just not compelling.

Bought this game on sale just to beat it because i couldn't do it when I was 10.
I like it even more now.
I consider this game a jewel of a SPACE RTS Game.The battles are so intense and require nearly flawless strategies and the story was captivating until the end.The sound is pure gold,too.I can't describe to you the eargasm you get when a ship (not yours lol cuz losing ships sucks)loses its shield and gets pounded to oblivion with plasma guns,gattling guns,rockets and torpedoes.
In conclusion,I really love this game and i am glad i had the money to revisit it on Steam.I loved it as a 10 year old and i love it even more now.
P.S:For some reason the game's files get corrupted for no reason,so if the game crashes or something just verify its cache from the steam settings.Also,it's more likely to crash when the Steam Overlay is enabled.

Classic, stands up amazingly well even in 2016.

One of the few "hard" SF games made, and really gives the feeling of commanding a capital ship rather than piloting a WWII fighter in space, or sailing a boat in space. It isn't easy to find games like this. Yes, there is sound in space. No, the physics are not perfect. But it gets very close -- closer than just about anything else I've seen. And certainly strikes a great balance of playability and fun when it makes those trades.

Rather amazing that they updated it for modern OS after all these years. I waited until the sale was over so I could do the publisher the small kindness of paying full price in recognition for the work they put into it.

One of the best in the genre.
I especially enjoy the beginning where there is no FTL and it takes months to move anywhere in the Solar System.
This is the only game that I've played that has this realistic approach to space strategy.
Played this almost to the end when it originally was released, but had a problem/bug that stopped me from finishing.
Now, with high resolution and support for newer operating systems, this is a must have for all who like sci-fi and strategic space combat.

I play this old Glory some years before it landed on Steam.
Despite being a 2004 game, Nexus still remains the best tactical fleet simulator in the market. The plot brings you in the middle of a interplanetary war; you will like characters as Captain Cromwell and his crew, or many aliens like the Gorgs.
Also there is a skirmish/Ship Editor and many mods to enjoy.

Diese Perle von einem Spiel ist wirklich schon fast 12 Jahre alt?
Durch den neuen Patch (ja ein Patch nach über 11Jahren ,vielen dank an die Entwickler!!!) fällt das Alter kaum auf!

Hier meine persönlichen Eindrücke:

+Vom gameplay her eher ruhig bis gemütlich und jeder Zeit mit Leertaste pausierbar.

+Absolut erstklassige deutsche Synchro , so etwas bekommen in der aktuellen Spielegeneration kaum noch welche hin
selbst große Publisher wollen anscheinend dafür kein Geld mehr ausgeben.
(Man siehe z.B.die neuesten Homeworld-Ableger,Hitman etc.)
Man muss ja mittlerweile froh sein , wenn man schlecht ins deutsche übersetzte Texte bekommt.
Mit Nexus bekommt man ein Paradebeispiel an erstklassiger Lokalisierung geboten!!!
Ja man glaubt es kaum , vor einer Dekade haben Entwickler sowas noch ernst genommen
und vor allem hinbekommen...

+Für mich bietet Nexus in diesem Genre eine der besten Storys die ich bisher erleben durfte.

+Absolut geniale Atmosphäre , ich fühle mich jedes mal wie ein Commander auf meinem Schiff.

-NICHTS

Nach heutigen Ermessen gibt es im Weltraum-Strategie-Genre nichts , wirklich absolut nichts vergleichbar Gutes!
Hab es durch zufall auf Steam wiederendeckt und für lächerliche 2,49€ gekauft.
(Wäre mir sogar bis zu 15€ wert gewesen)
Wenn man bedenkt was manche Publisher für sogenannte HD-Remakes verlangen...

Also an Alle die etwas mit Weltraum,Strategie,Taktik und eher ruhigen Gameplay anfangen können:
KAUFEN !!!

Ach ja fast vergessen :Läuft bei mir unter Win7 64bit problemlos.

Eines der besten eher unbekannten Spiele die es gibt.

Erinner mich noch gut an dieses Spiel.
Besonders da es Imperium Galactica 3 werden sollte.
Danach war es Andromeda, und letzten Endes Nexus TJI.

In Nexus ist letzten Endes nur das Kampfsystem von IG3 erschienen mit einer Storyline.

Grafik war für Damalige Verhältnisse der Hammer, kann man auch noch heute schön anschauen, besonders die Waffen und Schildeffekte.
Texturen sowie der Polycount fallen mittlerweile jedoch zu niedrig aus.
Was angesichts der 12 Jahre nicht wundern sollte.
Eigentlich müsste dieses Spiel schon auf einem Smartphone lauffähig sein, hab es damals auf einer GF4400 gespielt. xD

Die Story ist gut, nix außergewöhnliches aber bei weitem besser als alles was in letzten 8 Jahren im Bereich von RTS Spielen gesehen habe.

Gameplay.

-Energiemanagement(Triebwerke, Schilde, Waffen)

-Waffentypen
-Energiewaffen zum Schilddurchbruch, verbraucht nur Energie. Diese Waffen können irrwitzige ausmasse erreichen.
-Kinetische für Rumpfzerstörung, verbraucht Munition oder schwächere Modele die nur Energie Brauchen.
-Lazor, taktische Waffe zur Zerstörung von Modulen auf einem Schiff, Durchbricht direct denn Schild, wobei es aufn
Schiffstyp ankommt ob der Schild nicht zu starck ist.
-Fighter und Bomber, es gibt 3 Abstufungen Die Fighter taugen idr. nur um andere Flieger vom himmel zu holen ggf. auch
gut gegen schiffen wo die Schilde unten sind. Bomber und Kanonenbote durchbrechen auch Schilde wie die Laserwaffen.
verursachen aber deutlich mehr schaden, jedoch werden die auch leicht abgeschossen
-BoartingTeam, im SP werden die hauptsächlich genutzt um Missionsziele zu erfüllen, ABER man kann sie auch nutzen
um Module zu zerstören, man sollte die aber nur los schicken wenn die nix vom himmel schießen kann und wenn die
Schilde vom Ziel unten sind.

-Schiffstypen, Kreuzer, Zerstörer, BS, fighter, Fregatten etc., standart halt

-Ausrüstung, man kann die Schiffe zwischen Missionen mit Modulen umrüsten oder verbessern, wer seine Schiffe am
♥♥♥♥en hält hat am Ende mehr Punkte über für bessere Module, hier kann man wirklich alles in seinen Schiffen
verbessern.
Zur info, man kann beschädigte Schiffe mitm IPDrive (Sprungantrieb) nach Hause schicken wenn der Gegner ums
verrecken sich nicht von diesem abbringen läst, einfach das Modul anklicken und ladenlassen
(ggf. mehr saft auf Antrieb und wenn möglich Schilde und Waffen ausstellen)

-Die Missionen sind stark gescriptet, jedoch auch zufalls bedingt ausgerichtet.
Einige Missionen sind nicht mehr gut zu schaffen wenn z.b. ein verbündetes Schiff die falsche Richtung einschlägt.
Man braucht dann viel länger um überhaupt in Reichweite zu kommen für Hilfeleistung.

-BUGS!!!
Das spiel ist nicht Bugfrei, idr. kann man sich schon drauf einstellen bestimmte Missionen zwei-drei mal zuspielen. :S

-HDPatch
Hier sag ich einfach mal; THX NORDICGAMES!
Auch wenn UI Scale super gewesen währe! auf 4K wirds UI sehr Klein, aufFHD jedoch ohne probleme spielbar.
Da das Spiel so alt ist kann idr. jeder 8xAA und anderes zeug drüber jagen.

Mit dem HDpatch undallen ursprünglichen Sprachen istes seine 10€ meiner Meinung nachwert für alle SciFi sowie RTS Fans.

Warning, this review is based on my several years old experience, haven't played that since, only for a few minutes. YOu can skip to bottom for TL;DR part.

Brilliant! I've spent approx 100 with this game (only in campaign!) and it is incredibly tactical. Maybe Homeworld seems to you too much arcadish? Well, this one is more like hardcore tactical RTS :) You can assign orders even to last single battery on your corvette, but don't forget yourself! Too much micromanagement can kill you very quickly. Solution can be a lot of pausing, or simply giving orders in such manner, your ships will perform well even without your intervention, so you can take care of top priorities. Protect your ships, bring them from mission to mission throughout whole campaign and be sure your crew gathers experience, because experience can be more valuable than guns and armor itself.
And atmosphere is still "realistic". As realistic as it can be in space opera RTS :)) Thanks to music, graphics (right now I mean long trails behind ships, design of Earth ships and other details, not beauty of textures, lights or shadows, more on that in next paragraph...) storrytelling and proportional grow of your forces you get first grade experience. First you start with a single ship that travel from Earth to Jupiter for eight months. That seems to be kinda fast for today's technology, isn't it? Well, wait for your first alien ship that carries you from system to system in no time, compared to Stilleto (your first ship). It takes like ages of ingame time, to get Angelo (if I remember the name correctly), but that makes it even more rewarding. Later you will get another ship to your current one, so you will be able to use two of them. When your fleet grows to number of like 5 ships, you will feel invincible.

Today they released patch (first one after years of inactivity) that brings the game to full HD. I realized how much time passed since I started Nexus for last time. Graphics looks really old, but playability seems to be still very high.
I really hope in more updates, possibly in remastered edition or even brand new game? (ehm, inspirated by not named studio, right?)

TL;DR
If you are fan of space opera where you take care of your ships and where you can really enjoy tactical decisions and story, definitely buy this game while in discount like today's one. For current price 2,49 Euro, it's a must. Even when it's priced on it's full 10 euro, it can be a good buy.

They just updated the game, a game I would have recommended without the 'HD-patch' they just released.

This game is pretty cool. To give you a review that brings it a bit different; Think Homeworld, but now you do not build ships, you aquire some throughout the campaign. For the rest it is very similair, expect you do not have to send out collectors to gather resources. You also have a bit more options than setting an agressive of defensive stance.

The game makes you expand your fleet throughout the campaign and offers a certain freedom in the upgrades you apply to your ships. Then once you are in a mission you can give very specific orders, or let the ships do as they will. The last probably wont be too succesfull though, but that is pretty much what makes this game good. It allows you do make your ships do all sort of things, target specific equipment on enemy ships, make artillery strikes on incoming enemies, and sooo much more. Often these things can hurt you as much as they can help you, so some thought is required and you should also not forget the AI can do the same to you.

This game is quite simply... awesome. It's unlike any other space rts ive ever played. It's graphics are almost cinematic and like watching a movie, it's level of control is something rarely seen in games now a days. I was particularly amazed with how even my crappy windows xp laptop (as opposed to my more modern desktop) could run the game at full graphics and still play very smoothly.

There were 2 negatives to this game that you only really notice later on.
The first is the "independentness" of your space ships. i actually believe that the manual explained this was on purpose, and if done correctly, this function could make the game tons more fun and one of a kind. But they kind of failed. The idea is that your ships aren't under your command as much as following your orders and figuring out things for their own. This could have been a highly unique and interesting feature if they had taken it a bit further (for example, having different personalities of captains on your ships. so one could charge right in guns blazing when when u say attack while the other would naturally bombard the target from a distance and disable its key systems before going in for the kill). they also could have just not implemented this idea and had the ships follow your orders exactly (like manual almost but as an ai) instead the game has an awkward middle ground that is sometimes extremely annoying. I often go manual on my ships and still have problems. I will send my flagship away from, say, the battle base titan or something similar and send it towards an enemy cruiser to keep it safer. then i will come back to find that my flagship has turned arond and is charging straight into the battle bases guns..... and only a single laser beam is firing from my ship as it charges . This obviouslycan be frustrating. (sorry didnt mean to rant but in the late game where everything relies on timing, this can be annoying and almost game wrecking if you try to micromanage)
The other flaw that i will briefly mention is that the game doesnt seem open to creative solutions. It seems to have been designed with a single solution for every level that you have to find through trial and error (especially in the late game). when you have a beautiful game like this with wonderful control styles and an amazing number of ways of options in combat, it is frustrating when in the end only one or two ways will work for the "mission".
After that rant, you probably think the game must suck, but actually in all other aspects this game is awe-inspiring, one-of-a-kind really. I recommend it heavily

Let's face it, these games are not for everybody, but this is one of the best games I have ever played. Homeworld was good, but this is great.

I was so distraught when I learned years ago that they were not going to make a sequel, freaking ♥♥♥♥♥♥ games that are stupid and repetitive get remakes, but tactical space fleet games get crapped on. This is why I don't vote, because great games like this that get ignored get thrown to the wayside and ♥♥♥♥ like CoD and BF get played like crazy, so obviously the majority of people are idiots so your vote is irrelevant.

Fantastic bargain at £1.74 for a fab classic - really enjoying playing through this again after so many years - you can't go wrong picking this up for next to nothing with fab gameplay with a long and interesting campaign and the graphics don't let it down even though it's over 10 years old now.

One of the best strategy ever made, but it keeps crashing...

This version of the game is bugged.
There are problems with the singleplayer campaign corrupting gamefiles.
Would wait until this is fixed by the new dev.

Do you like space sims and ambient space theme music to go to sleep by? Yeah, me too. Don't pass this one up even at full retail. It's still a good one even if it's 12 years of age.

This game is still pretty cool.
I was sad when it already ended after 48 hours played.

This is just a straight up kickass space combat strategy game, with satisfying mechanics and great visuals that have been thankfully mastered in high def for modern systems. At least a 5/7

One of the best in the genre.
I especially enjoy the beginning where there is no FTL and it takes months to move anywhere in the Solar System.
This is the only game that I've played that has this realistic approach to space strategy.
Played this almost to the end when it originally was released, but had a problem/bug that stopped me from finishing.
Now, with high resolution and support for newer operating systems, this is a must have for all who like sci-fi and strategic space combat.

Wish there were less compatilibty issues, but the storyline was interesting, the space flight concepts were well thought out. The missions were engaging, the system of flight and command was nice, but could use some expansion. Overall a great game. Wish they'd make a sequel with more depth and interest! Something a bit less linear would be awesome!
