Trading commodities while sneaking past hostile forces, racing the best pilots in the area, mining for diamonds, negotiating for survival, spying for a curious energy company, cleaning dirty solar arrays, transporting an impatient passenger… and that’s just on a Monday. The life of an independent mercenary is rarely without excitement. At times, you may choose to work under contract, while at others, you may want to take matters into your own hands in a quest to build your reputation and fortune. Your spacecraft awaits. Your adventure begins in the Sapphire solar system.
In Evochron, you are free to seek your fortune as an independent mercenary in an adventure directed by your choices, abilities, and accomplishments. Each player can bring their unique skills and interests to the game, forming clans for cooperative goals or remaining solo to complete objectives on their own in true freeform space-sim gameplay.
The Evochron series has evolved through a few titles to become one of the best SPACE adventures out there with more to come! Well worth the admission and a project of love by it’s creator and player!

That’s about all I can say about the game… trackir supported and in the cockpit fights that are just fantastic! Watch the video above and then get it and enjoy it! [GS] 9/10
Sol:Exodus on the other hand, new on steam is little more than an Arcade shooter under 10 bucks. The six man design team says just wait for the things to come. I agree, just wait and pass for now. [GS]6/10
Star Trek Online
Actually, STO is a FUN MMO..Massive Multiplayer Online is now FREE to Play.. …BUT, you might get involved in “buying” things in their online store.. overall not a bad game at all. [GS] 8/10
Sword of the Stars: Complete Collection is the original Sword of the Stars games and the three expansions Born of Blood, A Murder of Crows and Argos Naval Yard.
It is the year 2405, and human scientists have discovered a new technology that allows travel from star to star at speeds faster than light. But tragedy strikes, as Earth is ravaged by an alien force. The dawning of a new era was stymied by a grim, new reality…
Sword of the Stars:
- 4 distinct races – Human, Hiver, Tarkas and Liir
- A powerful state of the art engine delivers breathtaking graphics and robust game play
- Each race has a unique mode of transport between star systems, creating very different styles of play
- Over 150 distinct technologies to research on a dynamic tech tree
- Over 40 weapons from six different weapon classes
- Players can design and build ships from three size classes – Destroyer, Cruiser, and Dreadnought
- Up to 8 players can play against the AI and one another over LAN or online
- Choose from a variety of scenario campaigns to play alone or with friends
It’s a pretty good 4x game real time strategy.. [GS]8/10
Sword of the Stars II on the other hand, is a totally botched piece of junk and unfinished. [GS]2/10
