Reviews for Space Engineers
Fun if...viriel | Feb. 13, 2014 | See all viriel's reviews »
Space Engineers is fun and innovative but that comes with a big IF...You will only get value from this program if you enjoy building and working with objects in space. Currently there are no quests or objectives, nothing like the Ender dragon. There is a multi-player and the creators are making improvements all the time and even without making any big projects I've logged over 14 hours so it is definitely worth the price. If you enjoy building, space ships and limited weapon use this game will be right up your alley. However if this and the low price tag aren't enough to draw you in, wait until the full game is released and hopefully all of the features will be worked in. If you can get a gmg code and have some extra coin then there's no reason not to buy Space Engineer's.

Space Engineers is a game about building things in space. It is a sandbox game not unlike Minecraft, and even in Alpha, just as Minecraft was at first, there is still fun to be had for many hours. This game has some features that make it have potential to be better than Minecraft. First of all, you can build spaceships and space stations. And you can crash them. What you crash them into deforms with an awesome deformation engine that put holes in meteors and tears space ships apart. One thing that is awesome to do in this game is crashing into one of your friend's creations and seeing as you make a hole in their work. Multiplayer still needs some work overall though. In public servers there is a lot of lag, unless you have REALLY good internet. When playing with friends, I did not experience much lag, and the game was much more playable. Overall, if you love space sims, sandbox games, and games with awesome destruction and great graphics, then this is for you. Just make sure to buy it now, before the price rises (which it certainly will).

Space Engineers is at the moment an early-access game that will (hopefully soon) expand to be a full space themed sandbox where the players can build their spacecrafts or bases and can use them to mine, fight, travel and so on. First of all I have to say that the idea is great - and so far the execution seems to be of high standard as well. The graphics is really nice and the physics seems to work quite realistic - which is quite important in a physics based sandbox. So far only the Freebuild mode is available but the developers promise to have a Story mode as well that will also serve as a tutorial. The game is recommended for anyone who would like to experiment with a physics based building game that shows great promise.

This game is just so brilliant! Even trailer made me excited of this game. Those physics and damage systems are just great. I love how those ships blow apart in space and their debris just fly away. And making your very own space station, and you're the commander of it. There are some things to add like generator exploding. Sharing those huge shuttles on Steam Workshop sounds great and if multiplayer support comes, let me know first! I have been wondering how they got multiple astronauts to scenes. Sure there are some bugs but they don't really bother player's thinking. I saw my friend playing this and even he says that this game is great! God I'd like to have this game and just build gigantic ships, so don't waste time reading these reviews, just press that "Buy now" button and you will have hours of fun playing this masterpiece of space games. I see that this game has great future here and on Steam. I wish you luck; On space!

When buying this game i expected it to be buggy and laggy due to it being in early access. I was wrong. the game runs smoothly there are daily updates and while it has limited features at the moment its plenty to keep you entertained until the new content is unlocked, which is soon. i recommend this game to anyone who likes these building type games.

Space Engineers is taking a step into the future...literally. The developers have created beautifully coded physics and is by far one of the best games set in space. It is also very rewarding everytime you build the perfect ship or the perfect space station after spending hours of your life wasting away over it only to watch it get smashed into space debris in a matter of seconds.
I believe this is a promising game and an excellent creation on be half of the dev team who made it. This is an amazing game as it is I cant to see what happens when they imput things like multiplayer in the full release.
I suggest you buy it now, I promise you its worth the money.

The game is in early access. With that said, I think most people can see what this will be about. Its supposed to be a minecraft in space with nice graphics. To some that will sound awesome, and it does to me too. However, you need to know what you are getting yourself into. You build ships, stations and eventually you will be able to mine space rocks and fight enemies among other lesser features. That really is about it. If you find that appealing you will enjoy this. If you enjoy story, points of any kind and an overall feeling of progression you will find this disappointing. Its a pure sandbox in the purest sense of the word. I suppose the question you should ask yourself now is if its worth the $15. Frankly, it is, for the simple fact you can build ships and stations. It will keep you occupied for hours on end with that alone. When more features come online, the $15 will probably be considered a bargain. The only gripe I have with it is that the UI is sort of messed up and there isn't any customization when it comes to that at all except for key bindings. You either have the whole thing turned on with annoying text that blocks your view, or nothing at all, which is not helpful if you are commainding a ship and wan't to know numbers such as speed and power consumption. Hopefully that will be fixed
Playing with physics in spacetzarinakatarina | Oct. 28, 2013 | See all tzarinakatarina's reviews »
The Space Engineers game takes you into the space and manages to turn some mundane and potentially boring maintenance tasks into interesting and addicting gaming activities. The excellent thing about this game is how much fun playing with physics can be. The laws of physics are represented really well, so with some little imagination you can really feel as if you are deep in space. But it's not all - you don't only get to play with physics, but also to build (and destroy) things. So you want to build a spacecraft - sure, it is completely possible. Just remember there's no gravity, so engines and thrusters will work different than in our atmosphere. How? Well, try and you will see...
Quite the Amazing game.Tyendinaga | Oct. 26, 2013 | See all Tyendinaga's reviews »
One of the best games I have played to date. It doesn't have a story, Half of the objects within the game don't even work, but the game is already amazing and beautifully designed. Bugs are few and far between with the only two I've experienced being a headless engineer clipping through a cockpit nobody was in and a single crash after many hours of game play.
Truly a remarkable experience that I can't explain with mere words.

Space Enginners has to be one of the most promising videogames I have ever player, the physics destruction make it already more fun than most exsisting space simulators, you could easily have fun with it by simply crashing into stuff, seeing another ship snap in two with it's debris flying all over space is just gorgeous to see, and even though the game might be rather unstable at the moment it is possibly waste entire hours with this building gigantic ships wich you can also share on the newly integrated Steam Workshop.
You could even build your own home sweet home, add thrusters to it and see it crumble as everythings falls apart while you mash it through...things!
