Take command of a fleet of powerful starships in this adventure-driven strategy game from legendary designer Sid Meier. Travel to new worlds, completing missions to help save and protect the planets and their people from dangerous Space Pirates, to powerful Marauders and other hostile factions. Build a planetary federation as you strengthen your fleet and secure your homeworld as you attempt to preserve intergalactic peace and your vision of humanity. Set in the universe of Civilization: Beyond Earth after the age of the Seeding, Sid Meiers Starships offers sci-fi/strategy fans a full stand-alone game experience that also features cross-connectivity with Beyond Earth, expanding the depth of both games. See if you have what it takes to rule the universe!

Tactical Space Combat: Encounter unique tactical challenges in every mission, with dynamically generated maps, victory conditions, and foes.
Fully Customizable Starships: Create an armada that fits your tactical plan with modular spaceship design.
Diplomacy, Strategy, and Exploration: Expand the influence of your Federation and gain the trust of the citizens of new planets. Use the unique abilities of the each planet to enhance your fleet and Federation, and keep your opponents in check. Build improvements on worlds to increase the capabilities and resources of your Federation.
A Galaxy Of Adventure: Explore the galaxy as you lead your fleet to distant worlds and complete missions to help the citizens of these planets. Fight pirates, protect colony ships, destroy rogue AI, and more.
Multiple Paths To Victory: Will you win by conquering the greatest threat to the galaxy? Or will you unite a plurality of worlds in your Federation? Perhaps you will lead your people to push the frontiers of science. Each choice you make carries consequences on your path to victory.

It has potential (3 stars)
Overall not a bad game. It kept me entertained for a few days before it got boring. I do not mind the low graphic quality as it is more a strategy game anyway, though there is a lot that could be done to make it better in terms of gameplay. Missions are boring, as they are no different from attacking a planet. The fact that destroyed starships can be repaired makes no sense. And why does a fully loaded enemy spaceship take ten seconds to blo

Great game - one big bug (5 stars)
Picked this up just in time for an international flight. Game play is excellent and doesn't suffer from the AI issues of Civ Rev (too easy or impossible). With the difficulty set to hard or above, the battles actually take a thoughtful strategy. I've spent 15 minutes playing cat and mouse trying with a larger and more powerful enemy fleet picking them off 1 by 1. However, I found one big bug - at one point, the game stopped saving.
