  • Summary: Space-based 4X games always start out behind the 8-ball. This 8-ball has a name, and its name is “Master of Orion”. The first question everybody asks when a new game in the genre comes out is, “Is it as good as Master of Orion?”. Many have tried (“Sword of the Stars”, “Galactic Civilizations”, etc.

  • Summary: Samurai space bears can't quite save it When I look up at the sky at night, one thought eclipses all others: I really hope there are badass bears in space. Bears are natural spacefarers, and that is a known fact.

  • Conclusion: Also, making the galaxy feel more alive wouldn’t hurt either. It’s all a bit soulless right now, even the other races have limited interactions available. I’d hesitate to spend the full £24.99 on this game – not right now anyway.

Endless Options, Little Explanation

  • Conclusion: Concept: Run an interstellar empire and conquer your foes while juggling endless tech, ship, and expansion options Graphics: The top-down 2D view of the galaxy is simple, but it gets the job done admirably Sound: Mostly atmospheric synths punctuated by the sounds of lasers and planetary bombardments...

  • Conclusion: "StarDrive is not the kind of experience that offers a welcoming introduction to the genre." "The most fun you’re likely to have in StarDrive is the time you spend shipbuilding." "...it’s a paint-by-numbers 4X game with little to differentiate it from the pack."
  • Pros: Fun, accessible shipbuilding, A colorful cast of alien species, Automation features that let you focus on the fun stuff
  • Cons: Dry, sparse tutorials, Lack of innovation, Unintuitive interface

They can be turn based or real time and “real time” can be warped to mean quite a few things too – the only fundamental guarantee on a real time game is...

  • Excerpt: By now everyone should know the sub-genre of strategy know as 4X (explore, expand, exploit and exterminate). These games are very popular (especially among the hardcore gamers) and now Zero Sum Games is trying to take it's share of the market with their upcoming game, StarDrive.
