  • Summary: The game: is addictive, long, funny & looks great. HOWEVER, it is tedious. The game requires that you work up skills, cultivate relationships and manage resources which are all good, but like a large Civilization game you spend the last third of the game just trying to get to the end turn button as...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Summary: Quite possibly the greatest Startrek Themed facebook parody sim game ever made.

  • 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.

  • 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’.

  • 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.

  • 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.
