From Strategyinformer.com: "It's hard to talk about Sword of the Stars II as a game without talking about the circumstances surrounding it. As many of you will have heard by now, the it's in a pretty dire state right now, with the dev team having to work round the clock to fix things. Out of respect for past achievements - both from Paradox and Kerberos themselves, we gave the development team two weeks to do what they could, at which point we'd give our review, and now here we are. You'll be pleased to know that, at the very least, the game is more or less stable and playable now. Whether or not it's enjoyable is another kettle of fish. Fish that we suspect are dead".
