It's a JRPG in space and that can be pretty fun. There's a lot of competent subsystems to the game. The Character art is pretty goofy, but if you can get past that and you like Space, JRPGs, and Age of Sail. I have to emphasize that this is absolutely a JRPG style RPG. It's menu driven, and you'll find yourself constantly wrangling the menus to get the infomation you need. If you don't like that, then don't buy it.

Don't reveal spoilers if you haven't completed a normal game.
As the other reviews say here, this particular expansion is extremely grindy. It does indeed capture the worst aspects of the game. Unlike other ascensions, a priest one requires every single lore at at least 10. This is a lot of work, yet there is a pittance of new lore. On top of that various other types of things are required, including getting sick, and going broke. This is extremely dangerous because if you get sick while you're going broke, you're going to die. And you need to give up your reason and passion into decrepitude because you're constantly sacrificing health.

It's all to easy to get into a situation where you're waiting for the stars to align to get you the right cards that just expire too quickly. You really will be praying to God if you end up getting a rival because you absolutely NEED restlessness, and rivalry stops you getting it. You're also unable to access the Stag Door because it requires a temptation or dedication, which you don't have. Meaning that you can't get a flow lot of higher power influences, or Secret Histories lore.

If there was more lore, more things to discover, and more perks for being a Priest, then this might be good. But it's not. You can get a steady flow of pawn-level disciples which expire after a time. But you can only get the type which your cult is dedicated to. This doesn't feel very useful, unless perhaps you have a cult dedicated to Knock and want to use a lot of crucible soul rites.

So in summary, adds a grind, without payoff or enough interesting new mechanics. Just go buy Dancer and Ghoul instead.

Evolve's gameplay is great. It rewards coperationand teamplay from the hunters, and ingenious & diverse tactics from the mosnter players. Too bad about EVERTYHING ELSE.

The insane amount of DLC. The Grind! So much content is gated in Evolve behind ingame (or real!) currency. IT's insane. Evolve's biggest problem is that 2K and Turtle Rock never gave you enough of the game to feel worthwhile. That's what I don't think they ever understood. You can't gate THAT MUCH of a game off and still expect people to play it. Unlocking Hunters, unlocking perks, unlocking monsters, all these unlocks that take so much game time.
Other, smaller games have done this and failed too. Gimbal, a game about building and fighting with futuristic aircraft is a great example. It's dead, because so much is cut off from you at the start.

Play the game, play it again, realise that you're not playing it again, you're actually learning more about the story. Then you play it agian and it's not really even again at all, you're progressing the story, and there's a LOT more to that story than you realised in your "first playthrough", which wasn't really a playthrough because you're now on a totally new arc of the story and now everything you know is wrong. Or is it? Play the game, avoid spoilers. Avoid strategy guides. You get a chapter select so don't be afraid to experiment and make choices. Like self destructing on the Bunker.

Nier Automata once again proves that video games can be an extremely compelling storytelling medium that asks real questions, while being very fun and engaging at the same time. A real gem, I couldn't stop playing.

Is this game worth buying? Maybe, if you've never played Homeworld or Homeworld before. This is definitely not a remaster. The homeworld 1 models and campaign were imported into the HW2 engine, ruining many features of the game. Apart from the multiplayer, which requires a special Gearbox account, there is just the updated textures and models. There were mods that could do this, for free. But this costs money. Pick up homeworld 2 for $10 online and you'll have the same experience, for cheaper.

Do not buy this game. The developers are trying to do something that they can't possibly do.

Why you should buy SR:

Scale: You can play with a 2 system galaxy for a quick and brutal fight, or a 9000+ system galaxy for a epic game.

Customisability: Most ships you're going to be using will be designed by yourself. The ship design system is good. you're not just swapping out weapons on hardpoints, you're designing ships from scratch. You place subsystems, including life support, crew quarters, bridge, power generator, engines, etc on a grid to your liking. Where you place a subsystem matters. Got a big gun at the front? It'll be taking hits first.
There's a wide range of weapons and utility subsystems to research too. Different weapons are good at different things. Raw DPS doesn't always win battles.

Depth: Every planet has its own economy. It's not super deep on a single planet scale, but it's there, and when you consider how many planets there are... You can exploit weaknesses to your advantage. Kill farm planets to starve enemies population.
