Critic Reviews for Surviving Mars: Space Race

Overall, the new Space Race DLC is pretty cool. There aren't any graphical updates or anything like that, and honestly, the game doesn't need them because it is pretty solid as it is. The new additional sponsors and other additions to the game are far more than enough to get you even more excited about playing the game.

A serviceable DLC that adds interesting new gameplay options to the game.

Ultimately, this DLC accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do. It presents more variables to consider. This not only spices up the average play-through, it also allows for more flexibility in determining that perfect level of difficulty. Just be aware that the full breadth of features requires a significant time investment. It's the whole "you get out of it what you put into it" adage. The rival colonies can seem a bit trivial, especially if one is never put into a position where they might have to deal with them. Expecting the player to invest hundreds of hours and pursue the toughest scenarios might be asking a lot, but if they're really enjoying the base game, then Surviving Mars: Space Race is worth looking into.

Space Race adds unecessary busywork for a game that’s already filled to the brim with it. Rivalries are lackluster and, once again, Surviving Mars lacks a proper end goal.
