When I (Blane Humphries of TwoDashStash) was asked to review Drox Operative, I had no idea what I was getting into. This was a game that received very little media attention and was developed by a small group of developers at Soldak Entertainment. I did not realize that I was about to play one of the best games to come out on the PC in the past 5 years.
Drox Operative is primarily a 4x game, with the galactic scale you would expect to find in Sins of a Solar Empire or Endless Space; however, it goes beyond that. Drox Operative features a very robust item looting system, like you would expect to find in Borderlands, combined with fast paced action, strategy, RPG elements.
