Everspace - Stellar Edition Launch Trailer | PS4
Everspace took me a while to warm up to, but once I changed my control layout and started getting better at the dogfighting aspects, the game became a lot more fun. Between finding resources to survive and picking my fights with nearby outlaws or running away so I could live to fight another sector, Everspace never really feels like the same run twice, and that's definitely a good thing.
Everspace: Stellar Edition isn't the best 3D space shooter or roguelike available, but it's a relatively unique and successful fusion of the two genres. Repetitiveness aside, you may just find yourself hooked by the game's tight combat controls and satisfying progression loop. Unfortunately, the Switch isn't the best way to play the game, unless portability is your top concern. Everspace for Switch isn't for everybody, but if you fall into the game's relatively narrow niche, a galaxy of die and retry fun awaits.
Everspace is a fun, challenging and involving roguelike game set in a space environment that features a very strict difficulty curve and an enormous amount of content to explore. While the difficulty level might seem too unforgiving at moments, this is a game that certainly feels rewarding for its players and those brave enough to venture into its depths will come out scathed but satisfied.
