Great for price, but rough around the edges

Pros: - There's a lot of depth to all the gear and skills you can get. Not as much as Borderlands or Diablo, but the most for any space-themed game for sure. - Has a cool style to it. Sort of cel-shaded graphics in space. Looks a lot different than most other space games. - Very action-like. For someone that wasn't a huge fan of space-sims this game plays more like an FPS in space. - Satisfying blowing up enemies and seeing chunks go flying.

Cons:
- Some graphical glitches.
- Had some issues getting my joystick to work, but this game doesn't seem meant for a joystick.
- Could use some more polish.
Didn't really try multiplayer, but I have no interest in it
