An amazingly deep 4x sci-fi real-time grand strategy game that will please fans of this genre. It rewards those willing to dig deep into the gameplay nuances but that same depth might prove too much for casual strategy gamers. Excellent customization and exploration and it is nice to see the game is still receiving updates, highly recommended.
“Calling Stellaris Europa Universalis in space is probably reductive, but it was the first thing I did in this review not because they are almost exactly alike, but because, when I put away my empires and get on with my day, the stories that have played out in these digital worlds embed themselves in my brain, and I so desperately want to tell people about them. Both games tickle the part of my brain that wants every battle to have some greater context, every move I make to be part of a larger narrative. Stellaris manages to do this without history to lean on, though, and does so with aplomb.”
“Stellaris is easy to comprehend and exciting to execute, which is a perfect combination for a genre notoriously difficult to break into.”
“Right now, Stellaris is a very good space-based strategy game, but a few months down the road, it could evolve into a fantastic one.”
