Star Control: Origins Review – A Space Odd-yssey

Stardock Entertainment is known for their ambitious space-themed games, however their latest opus, Star Control: Origins, is not another strategy game. The developer instead chose to make a story-focused, space-faring role-playing game of sorts with a heavy focus on action and adventure. Built in their new custom Cider Engine and taking place before the beloved Star Control series, Origins has quite a lot of expectation riding on it. Despite Stardock’s pedigree, does the game hold up? Read on to find out.


The Verdict: 9

The Good

  • Impressive visuals that fully establish an intergalactic adventure.
  • Hilarious and extremely well-written story and characters
  • Fun and addicting fleet battles
  • Highly rewarding experience that still allows player freedom
The Bad
  • Some minor but noticeable performance issues with textures, etc
  • This is a non-issue but I wish there were 4X / colonization elements
  • I wish there were more quests to offset the need to strip planets of resources, for quick cash

That's quite a counter point to earlier reviews.
