When I was young, there was a mouse-driven space game called Escape Velocity. That game and its sequels was awesome and I poured hours into it.
Space Rangers is like a modern, even more awesome (if possible) take on EV. It is hands down the coolest top-down space game Ive ever played. There is something for all sci-fi lovers. Trading, fights, arcade sequences, RTS, combat, story, dynamic worlds and planetary movement (youd be surprised how many top down space games have stationary planets). Everything. I haven't played the originals, so I cant compare the two. The only thing I dont like is that the Pirate faction seems kind of OP, but you can turn their aggression down iin the fully-customizable difficulty and game-play menu. That is an awesome feature, being able to control nearly every aspect of the gameworld - alien behavior, planets (types, how many) enemy faction behavior, trading behavior and so forth.
I love in-cockpit space games too, but theres just something fun about the top driven ones. And this game is the king of the top-down space games!
