  • 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. Daniel DiCicco, the man behind StarDrive , knows this to be true, which is why he made a game with space bears.

  • 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. Wait for a better discount, or wait until they’ve made some improvements to it. As it stands, there are bigger and better titles to be excited about.

StarDrive review

  • 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).  The debut effort from Portland-based Zero Sum Games stands out from the crowd with it’s beautiful visuals, quirky sense of humor, and promises of unique action-based combat.
  • 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. Zeker als die games zich in de ruimte afspelen ben ik eigenlijk gelijk verkocht. Het is dan ook jammer dat er niet heel veel games in die categorie uitkomen, we zijn ervoor veroordeeld tot de indiemarkt.
  • 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 noe for deg. Her er det i praksis kun én vei til seier, og det er krig.

  • 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 ruimteschepen; de schepen in je vloot zelf in arcadestijl kan besturen en planeten pas verovert na een landgevecht.
  • 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
