Hi.

Welcome to our site. We review games six months after release, once the bugs are fixed, new content has been added, and prices have dropped.

Hope you have a nice stay!

Sid Meier's Starships

Sid Meier's Starships continues the universe built in Civilization: Beyond Earth as well as the poor reviews. Less than 50% of over 1,300 Steam reviews have given the game a positive rating and it's the same story over on Metacritic with the game receiving a 75 on iOS and a 64 on PC. Polygon and IGN both game the game a 65, the latter of which pointed out the repetitive and exploitable AI in place.

As a tablet game Starships is ok but as a PC title it leaves a lot to be desired. Content shared on those two platforms rarely works well because you usually have one hampered by the other. Rare exceptions off the top of my head include FTL and XCOM, but those games are few and far between and this is not one of them.

Firaxis has put through one major patch since release, ramping up the difficulty on the hardest setting and attempting to fix the aforementioned AI, but the boat has well and truly sailed for this game.

If you liked Civilization: Beyond Earth and find Starships on sale at some point in the future then sure, give it a go. Just don't say you weren't warned. You can get the PC version of Starships right now on G2A for a lazy $10USD if you want.
