Space Rangers 2: Review @ Armchair Empire

by Dhruin, 2006-08-28 22:15:00
8.8/10 is the score for Elemental's Space Rangers 2 in The Armchair Empire's review:
Either as part of a mission or part of the exploration process, the element that sets Space Rangers 2 apart from its galactic exploration and conquest brethren are its mini-games. Invading hostile planets enables a great RTS mini-game that includes the ability to take control of a mech 1st person shooter style. Slipping into a black hole fires up a old school arcade action game that reminded me of the early vector classic Omega Race. I enjoyed all of the mini-games, but by far my favorite were the text adventure ones. For instance, in the aforementioned scenario where your ranger is sent to prison, the game gives you an option of playing his or her experiences there. If you choose to do this, you are faced with a simple text adventure in the Scott Adama mode. Each day the Ranger is faced with a number of choices. Which choices are made will determine just how damaging or rewarding the stay in prison will be. I found the whole experience charming. It was great to drop out of the modern gaming world and into the past for a few minutes every now and then.
