StarDrive 2 Review | Space Bears On Fire Off The Shoulder Of Orion [Dealspwn]

Dealspwn: Exploration is nice. I'm partial to a little Expansion and Exploitation too. StarDrive 2 offers all of these things, but when it comes right down to brass tacks, it's all about wholesale Extermination on a galactic scale. Sweeping battles in space and on land, attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, glittering armadas reduced to smouldering ruin. And that's absolutely fine by us.

While the space 4X genre is actually booming thanks to a small number of true greats (such as Distant Worlds and Endless Space), there's also a slew of generic, mechanically unsound and lacklustre cookie-cutter clones attempting to satisfy the demand. Though much closer in mechanics and tone to a traditional 4X game than its RTS-inspired predecessor, StarDrive 2 cuts through the noise by doing things differently, and in many cases, better.

Awesome. Go on then. Assembling and destroying massive space fleets is my favourite part of a space 4X.
