Stellaris is one of the best game space strategy till date

Stellaris is an interesting take on the grand strategy genre and the thing that makes it great is the fact that it allows you to use these unique gameplay methods in space. That’s really interesting and solid, not to mention that the game do break into new grounds.

Right off the bat, the game has a large number of impressive and interesting species. There’s a massive variety and the developers have put quite a lot of attention to the game detailing. Plus, the galaxy is nothing short of massive and that on its own manages to bring in front plenty of interesting gameplay moments on its own. Regardless of how much you want to explore, there is always more to be had.

The soundtrack and voice acting is decent, and the graphics are also quite well to say the least. Since this is a grand strategy game, the focus is not on detailed units, instead it is on the complexity of it all and you do get a massive kick from that.

Diplomacy is a little simple but the game as a whole is hard. There’s a huge focus on farming in the beginning, getting lots of research done, all so that you can get the better navy and expand in the galaxy. Rest assured that it will not be easy to do such a thing!

Performance could be better for the game, there are some graphics issues, plenty of bugs that affect the performance and that’s why you do need to save as often as you can. It’s not a title that manages to bring in so much replaybility, like EU IV, but it does have a good experience. They do need good polishing however.

Also, the AI wasn’t that great so they do have a lot of room for improvement. The alliances you can create do affect the experience though and you do feel like in a great grand strategy experience all the time.

However, the fact that you can modify your ship attacks and customize its design does allow you to bring in a better gameplay whenever you need it, plus it’s just a ton of fun to play as you want. You can be the bad guy, you can be a good person, it’s all about what you want to do and there are quite a lot of interesting moments to be had here which is what matters the most in the end.

Stellaris might not be the ultimate grand strategy game but it is the best one in space. Paradox did a great job with it and while this might not be as good as other similar titles like Galactic Civ III at least for us, it does scratch the surface quite nicely and I love that. Don’t hesitate and check this game out, it’s well worth your time if you can get past the flaws. That, and if they manage to solve all the performance/bug issues in future patches.
