6.9 / 10.0

StarDrive 2's ship building is top notch, but the flawed game surrounding it keeps it from ever truly shining.

Both land and space combat lack punch, but there's a fun if predictable 4X game waiting underneath.

6 / 10

StarDrive 2 is a competent 4X entry, but lacks standout features and is hampered by its ground combat.
