  • 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?”.

9 December 2013
  • Conclusion: The Short Version: As things stand, StarDrive is an exciting spacebound RTS with deep ship design, enjoyable combat, space bears and enough 4X flavour to tide genre fans over. However, a ruinous balance issue and several half-realised ideas means that it's not a particularly good 4X game yet.
  • Pros: Wonderfully-realised races with competent AI and versatile traits, Welcome streamlining and automation lets you focus on the fun stuff..., ... truly excellent real-time space combat and ship building, Gorgeous artwork, impressive soundtrack

  • Conclusion: Um weiter im Star Trek-Jargon zu schreiben, ich glaube nicht, dass der erwartete Warpkernbruch unvermeidlich ist, aber auf der anderen Seite ist „StarDrive“  im aktuellen Stadium einfach noch nicht fertig, sprich, ich würde den weniger hartgesottenen Strategiespielern unter Euch raten, noch eine...
