Sword of the Stars - Welcome to the GalaxyIn The Sword of the Stars, you control one of four alien races and it's up to you to take over the galaxy and put the smackdown on everybody else. Controlling your space empire lets you create new technologies, custom-build spaceships, colonize distant planets, meet weird space monsters, battle enemies and more. Each alien race is totally different too, here's a list of the races and what makes them special.
Sword of the Stars - Kicking ButtWhat's awesome is that even though there's a ton of stuff you can do, it's super easy to play The Sword of the Stars. The graphics are smokin' too, especially the bigger ships. The voices for the aliens are really weird, but they're perfect! And, multiplayer gaming is 'da bomb - you can leave a game in the middle of the action and the computer will take over for you. You can join a game in mid-game too, even a game you just left!
Sword of the Stars - Lost in SpaceAs cool as the spaceships are, they're hard to control in combat! The battles are huge, the ships are small, and it's hard to see how much damage anything has taken. Once you get used to the battles, you can keep track of things, but it's not easy at first.
Sword of the Stars - Galactic Empire or Space Junk?It's a space strategy game that's easy to play, full of cool aliens, and incredible-looking spaceships. Even though the combat is a bit tricky at first, the multiplayer rules and it's a rock-solid game for anyone that wants to conquer the depths of space and clobber weird aliens!
