Critic Reviews for Battlestar Galactica Deadlock


7.8 / 10.0

Battlestar Galactica: Deadlock pleasantly checks a lot of boxes: Sci-fi tactics and strategy; good controls; proper Battlestar Galactica game with attention to detail. That it does so with enjoyable and challenging gameplay makes it easy to overlook the less-than-stellar graphics and interface issues in the strategy layer.

Solid combat mechanics, but a little too light on content to justify full price.

Despite an aggravating interface, this is one of the best space-strategy games I've played in a long time. The battles are epic, the story is engaging and thought provoking, space has never looked so good, and the music is top-tier. I hope Black Lab and Slitherine Studios produce more like it, as there are tons of franchises to choose from, perhaps Babylon 5 or The Orville. Battlestar fans will get their fill of Cylon battling action, and I'm sure will love to add this gem to their collection.

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock is a competent, if somewhat unbalanced and painfully slow, tactical space combat sim. Unfortunately, it's not much of a Battlestar Galactica adaptation, as it totally lacks the series' personality, immediacy, and heart. Those obsessed with the nitty-gritty of BSG's space battles may want to give Deadlock a shot, but most fans will probably want to give this unrefined nugget a pass.

Compelling tactical fleet combat and a middling strategic campaign layer combine with some carefully applied Galactica aesthetics. That extra attention to detail earns Deadlock a little more than a hard six.

Unwieldy logistics may sometimes obscure its best facets, but Battlestar Galactica: Deadlock does justice to its namesake by giving us more of the awesome space battles and strange lore the television series is known for.

Battlestar Galactica: Deadlock is a massive treat for fans of the franchise, but even if this is your first exposure to the universe, it's well worth your money. It's a sufficiently deep, extremely fun and good looking turn based space strategy game with fantastic combat and a content-rich campaign.
