Excerpt: I’ll admit that the only reason I was first interested in Infinite Space was because it had a catchy name that caught my eye while searching through IGN’s release date calendar months ago (though the game was called Infinite Line back then). As I dug deeper, I found out it was an RPG made by Platinum games, of Bayonetta and Madworld fame, and since those guys have a pretty good track record, I was optimistic about this title.
Excerpt: SEGA sure is deserving of some praise from the “hardcore” gamer crowd. If not for their efforts in releasing mature games on the Wii or their penchant for keeping retro gaming alive, this new real-time space combat DS game is another offering from SEGA to save the dedicated gamer from a market of disposable handheld games.
Excerpt: Infinite Space brings together two of my favourite things in life: JRPGs and space-opera. For those with geek-levels matching my own, such a combination is irresistible. While Mass Effect's allegiances lie firmly with western RPG mechanics, and the Star Ocean series only really uses space as a setting in the pseudo sense, Infinite Space brings the two components together seamlessly.
Excerpt: Amidst all the big JRPG releases of March '10, namely FFXIII and a new Shin Megami Tensei game for the DS, it would be easy to miss Infinite Space, a fairly ambitious sci-fi RPG. The back of the box instructs the player to "embark on an odyssey to unite the universe," which certainly sounds like a daunting task, especially when combined with a title like Infinite Space.
Conclusion: Space is a big place, and Infinite Space really gets that idea across. There’s a lot of depth to this game, and it’s a blast. I’d highly recommend Infinite Space to anyone who enjoys a good story or a solid set of customization systems. It really feels like a lot of solid work went into developing this game, and I look forward to seeing what else Nude Maker can do.
Summary: Infinite Space is an RPG that takes place in outer space and gives players the ability to control, build, outfit and customize more than 150 spaceships, offering over 200 characters and the ability to control multiple spaceships at any one time.
