It's not. Don't bother with this one.

It is. Try this one.

There's a demo that was quite fun if you wander over to the website.

Not sure about now but it did require a log in to play which initially put me off the game. Although they've recently removed that need for single player games so the demo might have been tweaked as well.

As far as I know, only the steam version works without the initial login (not the demo).

Still don't. The game feels like it was rushed. The storytelling elements aren't there, the damage scaling is silly, there isn't any meaningful exploration. Graphics are poorly optimized, and the co-op is haphazard.

@Nothungy I don't want to argue with you, but in the last patch we significantly increased the performance and stability ...

For everyone else: just try the free demo http://www.minerwars.com/Downloads.aspx

>> You operate an advanced mining ship in a fully destructible and open-world environment, which remains persistent as you complete missions or play online with others. - Except not everything is destructable, and "open world" insinuates you have a single reason to not follow the main story.

>> Realism and survival are key aspects of gameplay. Inventory and the way you use resources such as fuel, ammunition, oxygen, ore, and weapons are important when surrounded by dozens of warring factions. - Realism, like how everything is found in boxes in space. Okay.

>> The gameplay is driven by an epic story and offers a choice of single player, co-op, and death-match multi-player. - Epic story? I guess if you hired a high school english teacher to write it.

>> Mining and Exploration – Players are encouraged to explore and harvest. -Explore what? Empty space?

>> RPG-like / Survival game-play - Except you don't play a role, you're a faceless dude you know nothing about, and the "survival elements" are "where is the next fuel box"

Fix your steam page so it's no longer misleading.
