Fun for 10 hours.
Buggy and AI loops creating a milking scenarios. Was winning a game on hard until AI started running fleets into one of my systems. They'd attack and immediately retreat, exausting my fleets moves. Was unable to attack them on the retreat. This meant they could sit siege weapons on the system unharmed; unable to attack them, unable to attack any other fleets.
Cynamitics were cool at first. Until you figure out it's the same sequence every time.
Ship building is fun in the beginning. But you start to realise how limited your options are. There are only 2 kinds of ships in the end; war ships and siege ships. You can't diversify your war ships because you can't choose who's on the front-line in space. Meaning, the only diversity you'l have in your fleet is between your upgraded units and your older units. Medium range and short range weapons are worthless so load up on medium and short range defense and stack long range attack.
The game feels a little spread thin. What is there is good but after 10 hours you feel like you've seen it all.
In summary: Very fun in the beginning but eventually loses it's charm. Good buy on a steam 80% off deal but don't buy at full price. With that said, Ill probably play another 5 hours of this.
