Rebel Galaxy's rendition of space is full of possibilities - but they're all a little too dull and repetitive for it to really work.

Cinematic starship combat and a (final) frontier atmosphere give Rebel Galaxy a great hook.

Rebel Galaxy's combat can be a lot of fun, but there's little depth and a lot of repetition.

It doesn't really do a lot more than what Elite achieved over 30 years ago, but this is a fun and accessible, if rather repetitive, space trading game.

Managing multiple systems can make you feel like a Starfleet Captain, but otherwise the doldrums of long-distance travel are conveyed too accurately

Yet, despite my many complaints, Rebel Galaxy did put a smile on my face. It's an ambitious little game that regrettably tries too hard to grab something out of its reach, but what it does get its hands on is excellent. The combat is spectacular, the atmosphere is charming (prolonged exposure to the soundtrack aside) and while there isn't as much depth to the game's systems as it would like you to believe, they are fun to poke and prod at when you get tired of blasting people with your lasers. Rebel Galaxy is the kind of game I'd want save for a rainy day when all I want to do is set my brain on auto-pilot and lose a few hours watching pretty colors and dreaming about being Han Solo.

Rebel Galaxy simplifies the formula in an approachable and exciting way, but the 2D space combat, lack of direction and loneliness of single-player space-faring hold it back from reaching the epic scale of other space sims. A fun solo venture, but it won't suck out thousands of your hours.

Eschewing complex 3D flight models for whiskey and galactic broadsides, Rebel Galaxy takes the traditional space trading model, dresses it in spurs, and sets it loose on a frontier that's dynamic, dangerous and unashamedly fun.
