Despite all of the flak this game has received it is still a fun game to play. I missed the Kickstarter for this game but got it as soon as it was available. The game met every expectation I had for it and has been a huge time sink. The ways ships are designed is one of the best systems I have seen implemented in a game and one I wish other studios would adopt.
Now I did not have many of the problems mentioned by most reviewers so I may have been lucky in that regard. The few crashes I did have were after marathon sessions of 12+ hours of playing. Over the years I tend to encounter very few bugs or other issues in games so I may just be very lucky.
Some of the mechanics weren't well explained but a little trial and error would produce the answer. In my experience if no explanation or trial and error is needed to figure out how a game works then the game has been dumbed down and will offer very little.
I've seen a lot of complaints about the developer not finishing the game and other issues but it ended up being exactly what I expected it to be. Personally, I got my money's worth of entertainment from this game and then some. I have even recommended it to a few friends who have also enjoyed it.
