  • Summary: 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. They don't require oxygen, can travel faster than the speed of light, and they build really rad spaceships.

  • Conclusion: A very ambitious undertaking, StarDrive has a lot of promise. There’s a lot the developer hopes to add, and he plans on supporting the game for the foreseeable future, but the package as it stands is a bit of a hard sell to all but the most patient and driven 4X fans.

  • Summary: Zero Sum Games' StarDrive seems like an extremely promising 4x strategy game at first glance. It has many things going for it: you can zoom out the camera to an almost omnipresent degree, design your own classes of starships, and take direct control of an individual ship and fly around with the...
  • Pros: Automation options aid hands-off conquerors, Exciting ship design possibilities, You meet interesting races, listen to their stories, and obliterate them
  • Cons: Terrible tutorial, Fate of the galaxy can be decided by a misplaced mouse click, Undeniably unfinished

  • 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.

  • 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

Limited Horizons–Stardrive Review

GamingTrend
24 May 2013
  • Excerpt: The thing about Stardrive is that it really knows how to draw you in as the latest entry in a struggling 4X genre (in which you eXplore space, eXpand your borders, eXploit your colonies, and eXterminate your adversaries).
  • Pros: Ship-designing tools are versatile…, Beautiful art, Interesting trade mechanics
  • Cons: …but they’re also not very user-friendly, Space combat not as deep as promised, Horrible ground combat, Lack of any meaningful endgame, Buggy

  • Summary: Al bijna twintig jaar ben ik een groot fan van het 4X-genre. Games waarin je een wereld krijgt om te verkennen, een beschaving om op te bouwen en vijanden om te bestrijden of mee samen te werken hebben een vreemd soort aantrekkingskracht.
  • Pros: Veel goede ideeën..., Interessante combat..., Eigen schepen maken
  • Cons: ...maar niks goed uitgewerkt, ...maar verder niks te doen, Diplomatie stelt niks voor, Opvallende bugs, Loopt niet altijd soepel

  • Summary: StarDrive er bygd på et solid fundament, og vil utvilsomt glede krigerske strategispillere. Hvis du er typen som elsker å designe romskip og se dem blåse fienden i fillebiter, har du mye å glede deg over i dette spillet, Om du foretrekker mer fredelig bygging, handel og diplomati, er ikke StarDrive...

  • Summary: Van sommige strategy games kun je als 4X-fanaat enkel dromen. Hoe gelukkig zou je als strateeg niet zijn met een spel waarin je: een gigantisch ruimterijk kunt uitbouwen; elke planeet individueel kan beheren; een interplanetaire economie opzet; zelf kiest welke modules waar juist zitten in je...
  • Pros: Ruimteschepen waarvan je de modules volledig zelf kunt kiezen, Zee aan opties voor je ruimte-imperium, Uitgebreide en goed werkende automatiseringsopties
  • Cons: Zeer steile leercurve, Turn-based strategy die toch real-time verloopt, Onspeelbare grondgevechten
