Drox Operative: Expansion - Review @ RPG Codex

by Couchpotato, 05:43

RPG Codex has posted a new review for Drox Operative: Invasion of the Ancients.

While Invasion of the Ancients adds some new features and quite a lot of new content to the game, most of it is really just "more of the same" and doesn't add anything new to the table. The two major additions, the Drox Guild Quests and especially the Invasions manage to give the game some much-needed variety, but the Invasions only fire later in the game and are basically high level content, so it takes a while to encounter them when you create a new character. So, is the expansion worth getting? That entirely depends on your experience with the base game. If you already got bored by the base game and need some really fresh additions to make you play it again, skip it. Essentially, the expansion just adds more content and even the new major features don't change the gameplay significantly. This expansion is only worth buying if you really enjoy the game and want a challenge for your high level characters and a more interesting and less predictable late game. This, it definitely manages to provide.

Drox Operative: Expansion - Review Roundup

by Couchpotato, 04:04

I'll keep it short here are two reviews for Drox Operative: Invasion of the Ancients.

Hardcore Gamer - No Score

With the release of this new expansion, now is the perfect time to jump into the game. Playing through with all this extra content is a great way to experience it for the first time, so if you’re considering giving the game a shot, pick up the expansion as well. Drox Operative also has online co-op play, so if you enjoy these types of games with friends, that is an option in this game as well.

The Indie Mine - 4/5

Overall, there’s a lot to like about the expansion. One of my favorite features is that it supports the use of a gamepad. The controls take a bit of getting used to, but for space battle it’s my preferred method. A good combination of diplomacy, exploration, and upgrading your ship is essential to being a successful at the game. At times the game borders on the realm of challenging and frustrating, but overall Drox Operative: Invasion of the Ancients is a great first expansion.

Before the Drox ruled the galaxy, before they were even sentient, there were older races now known as the Ancients. Using their Operatives, the Drox crushed and enslaved most of these races. The rest fled known space. When the Drox turned on their own Operatives, the Drox were utterly destroyed. Newer races emerged and thrived in the power void, never knowing the menace waited. Seizing their chance, the Ancients are invading to take their rightful place in the galaxy, as rulers! Thirsting for revenge, the Ancients can't harm the extinct Drox, but they can crush the next best thing, the Drox Operatives.
