An excellent strategy game... in space

lconanl

My first impressions of Stellaris: A great game all around. Definitely the best game I've ever played from Paradox! It combines deep strategy with good accessibility. It's quite easy and kind of slow at first, but it gets very fast paced when a war breaks out. Anyone who has initially been deterred by the depth and complexity of other typical strategy games from the same developers, should rest assured that Stellaris is relatively dumbed down compared to titles such as Crusader Kings or Europa Universalis. Through the three different game sections one gets accommodated to the game gradually and gets acquainted with the game's mechanics while having fun. The graphics are absolutely fantastic for a strategic title of this kind. The soundtrack is also genuinely well done, and no time intrusive or repetitive. The biggest plus of the game is its replayability! No one battle is like the other. The numerous randomly generated encounters make a distinct and unforgettable adventure! Also, in addition to actually playing the game, you will probably spend hundreds of hours creating your own breeds; with a practically endless pool to choose from, this is really impressive! For all those who like Si-Fi and are into real-time strategy, it's a definitive must buy! Utopia DLC: Highly recommended addition to the Stellaris galaxy. Many interesting new features that interact with the new mechanics in Banks. Ascension perks change the game drastically and lead to many surprises in all stages of the game.

Great and fun to play with others

Stellaris is one of those strategy games like civ 5 or Crusader kings 2 but its more like crusader kings in space, there are no turns the entire game is like real time you can pause the game, speed up time or slow it down, so far with all the recent updates they currently added in more ships and each ship type now has a specific role for its fleet, before it was just weak ships go in the front to take all the damage strong ships hand back and wreck everything, there are many alien species and different ways to play, you can conquer every planet in and nation in your way or fight everyone only to make that species independent and create a new nation (like the french did during the revolutionary war with America and Britain) also there are quest in the game that add in story or just to do stuff for fun like find ancient alien animals like dino bones on some barren planet so you can go put it in a museum for some reason, the space combat is also fun but it really only depends on who has the better ship/ specific weapons, i had a entire fleet wiped out by a weaker enemy only because they had some sort of weapon the destroyed shields quickly, so if you and your friends are interested in playing a new game together i would recommend you pick this up and try it out together heck maybe youll find out who you can actually trust then

CIV!!!! IN!!!!! SPACE!!!!!

Stellaris is a fantastic game by paradox, who first off you have never played one of their games what is wrong with you? From the moment you start Stellaris you are able to make your own race and civilization. Make a group of Alien hating humans or religious mushroom people, or anything in between. The amount of choices and selections you have in this game are huge, combinations can differ each play through. Not to forget the randomly generated galaxy you start each game in as well as the randomly generated other races and story arcs. This game's content will ensure that no two breakthroughs are the same. The game was a bit lanky at release but Paradox is a great company who listens to the community, and has done so repetitively with this one! My one issue with Stellaris is that it will be flooded with DLC that could have been in the base game, but like crusader kings, the game is still a blast in it's vanilla form.

Causual Play

If you are coming over from EU 4 then this game is a little bit different, but they still go hand in hand. Stellaris starts you off in a solar system and from there it is your job to expand outward. Technology is different, but in a good way, you have three sections physics, bio, Engineering and each has three options to chose from with different techs that later can be upgraded to four and even more as the game progresses. You also are able to choose the people who lead your country so your scientist, planet leaders, and military leaders each with special bonuses that if used right can sky rocket you a head but they cost influence points and you only get so many but they replenish slowly over time (before Techs upgrades) they also let you build frontier outpost that allow you to expand your empire. It is a fun game that has a lot of potential in the mod section. I mean someone is going to mod in star wars and star trek that is only a matter of months. Who wouldn't want to have a custom star destroy battle or fight the Klingons have a death star as an outpost.

The best space 4X I've played in a LONG time.

Dcrypter

Stellaris does a lot of things right for a 4X game. The game is easy to pick up and I found myself doing the whole "one more turn" thing just a tad too many times on many occasions. There is also a large amount of customization built into the game before you even looks at mods, which is nice. It looks great and the UI is pretty well done. It's easy to find the information popping up and to take advantage of it. My biggest complaint overall is just the "Sector" system. It needs a little more power to it. As it is you pretty much have to finish building out your planets before putting them into a sector which slows things down quite a bit. Other than that There could be some fine tuning on the AI which I am sure will happen over time anyway so I am not really going to complain about it.
