  • Summary: Redshirt has a humourous premise and it receives bonus points if you're a sci-fi/Star Trek fan, however the game doesn't really have any lasting appeal after you get over its primary goal in belittling Facebook. You might start to question why you're wasting your time playing a Facebook simulator for $20 when religiously using the real thing is available to you for free (okay, at least Redshirt probably won't provide your information to US intelligence agencies).

  • Summary: Honestly, I do not think this a bad game. I bought it when it was still in Beta, and it was already pretty fun. At the end, I think the main problem is the price... for 8-10 this is a good game, not for 20. Moreover, I'm not very sure that the "humorous" formula pays in the long run... I think that a "serious" game would had more market.

  • Summary: Quite possibly the greatest Startrek Themed facebook parody sim game ever made. Play an expendable nobody who has no friends and a miserable job on a doomed spacestation where the only way to find happiness is to find friends who will probably all end up dying on away missions, betraying you, or getting left behind as you try to advance your career.

  • Summary: Lots of reviews talk about Redshirt as an ironic critique on Facebook (given that it all plays through its equivalent Spacebook), but the game eventually pushes its imitation too far, so much that it instead becomes more like a homage to Facebook. Which is very boring and makes you think that, if the game had a point, it completely missed it.

  • Summary: So, in the interest of intellectual honesty, I should admit that I mostly bought this game so I could write a deliciously nasty review of it, observing that "the only thing worse than real social media is fake social media," and so on. So I cracked a beer to get the snark flowing, turned on NPR in the background (to make me feel cleverer than I am), and began to play. When I looked up, I noticed that four hours of my life (and a six pack) had mysteriously disappeared.

  • Summary: Redshirt promises a nostalgic feel by way of memes, inside jokes, and a familiar feel that Sci-fi fans will enjoy. The player begins their journey as a low level technician set on working their up through the bureaucracy. They do this through ‘spacebook’. A play on the well known ‘facebook’, Players make friends, do posts, schedule events, work, purchase things, and even have relationships. What the game does well is offer a theme that is very enticing.

  • Summary: I was very excited with this one. Wow, a life manager with a science fiction theme? A social network in a space station? Great idea! But Very Disappointing. A good looking game that results in a poor game play experience. Lots of things on the screen that makes you think "wow, this will be amazing, micromanagement and that kind of cool stuff". But no. All those buttons and panels you can see in the screen shots are not really for play, just to look better.

  • Summary: The game's premise is quite good. That's for starters. The story arch is quite good. The game revolves around the life story of a red-shirt character, who manages his life through an application named Spacebook. Through this application, we could find new careers, find friends, get friends into events, get latest news, read about our friends, etc. The good part : - Funny/witty comments/situations. This is a great, fun, and funny game.
