My first impressions of Stellaris: A great game all around. Definetly 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!
I've been a fan of Paradox for a long time now. Played their games, bought their endless DLCs to show them my support and appreciation for their work. But as much as I would want to recommend this game, I'm on the fence. Since you have countless reviews telling you the pros, I'll choose to highlight the cons. Combat is broken - a matter of who has the bigger stick/doomstack. War is rather boring, more a means to an end. There is a lack of meaningful ways with regards to diplomacy. Sectors (think decentralization of power) are barely efficient.
This game is an interesting mix of Universalis Europe and Civilization placed in space. The multitude of options at this moment seems to me to be enormous, and the galaxy can have as many as 1000 stars, and of course, every galaxy has several of its planets. The whole is as overwhelming as the real universe when it comes to thinking about it. Impressive.
Had this game a while now and I absolutely love it. Feels like (as the title says) everything I've ever complained about in other strategy games, this game just seems to do right. The pace is great, the variability mixed in with reasonable reliableness just makes the game feel smooth and satisfying. The dlcs have been wonderful additions as well, and even give free dlc like the anniversary skins to reward players as well. My only real complaint with the game is the late game slowing/lag can get annoying as even playing on fastest speed towards the very end of the game moves at a crawl - but honestly anything else I can even think to complain about is more personal preference or ways to improve the game. Devs work on the game regularly and are very responsive to the community. Overall, best gaming purchase I've made in years
