Starion Tactics is a more casual 4X strategy game that may remind you of a board game in someways. Every turn a player will be given a card which can have positive effects like having your ships avoid damage or negative effects such as an event that causes you to lose a planet, while the cards could have given the game a lot of tactical options most just aren't very interesting other than giving small buffs or small problems. Cards might just be a play for an extra resource when they could have been something much more interesting, while also adding to the narrative of the games universe and races. The game's description as a highly tactical and visual game certainly aren't true, as the more causal play certainly doesn't support the game being highly tactical and while it certainly has visuals they are nothing impressive or exciting about them. I think the game is overpriced at $10 but with the support of a co-op and multiplayer mode the three pack could be worth it if you have some other friends interested in this title, and the game does feel like it was designed more for multiplayer.
