Starpoint Gemini Warlords
Top Critic Average
If you're seeking an interesting space sandbox which offers a new take on core mechanics, Starpoint Gemini Warlords is a solid contender. If, however, you're looking for thrilling, dynamic space battles you'll be better off checking elsewhere.
If you enjoy space based strategy games such as Stellaris then Starpoint Gemini Warlords is great for giving a new perspective on space combat, leading your fleet from the front lines.
With a lack of identity often causing confusion about what the game is even trying to achieve, and an utterly disappointing campaign experience, there isn’t much to go on if you want an enjoyable and in-depth story adventure.
Starpoint Gemini Warlords can sometimes be a slog to get through because of its genre mashup, but it the end, it provides a rewarding, worthwhile experience.
Starpoint Gemini Warlords is a solid space strategy game; an eye-pleasing time-eater which will more than sate your desire for galactic conquest.
Ambitious, but unfortunately falls under the weight of those ambitions. Trying to juggle too many things, there's a decent game here, it's just hidden under awkward controls, a restrictive camera and the need to vomit. Also the names kind of dumb.
Starpoint Gemini Warlords is a blast from start to finish once you get over its flaws.
Starpoint Gemini Warlords has a lot of stuff and contents and can give hours and hours of gameplay, but not all the hours are unforgettable.

Starpoint Gemini Warlords brings an interesting dynamic of gameplay and mechanics due to the fact that it incorporates a crossover of genres that go from RPG to a 4X-based style. On the other hand, there is definitely room for improvement when it comes to audio features. This negative aspect of the game, aligned with the lack of depth in the characters background, can make it hard to stay engaged for long periods of time. Despite the listed issues, Starpoint Gemini Warlords succeeds in offering different quest options presented in either a story-campaign mode or an exciting free-roam scenario. Overall the best element found in Starpoint is the extensive array of features it combines to create a complete space exploration.
My relatively short experience thus far with Starpoint Gemini Warlords has me pretty impressed; play it as an RPG in space, a 4X game, or just explore endlessly without a plan – there's a lot of choice in how you enjoy it. One thing is for sure: it will be a long time before you ever feel bored.
