Stellaris: Console Edition brings Paradox's grand 4X strategy to consoles remarkably effectively, but it's a few lightyears behind in important updates.

An already flawed game struggles with the limitations of joypad controls – but it's a spirited effort and further proof that strategy titles do work on consoles.

A deep and unique RTS that does a little bit of everything and is good at almost all of it. It can be a little bit too deep and dense for some, but that was the case on PC, with the console versions retaining its appeal... despite having less content by now... It will come in a later date.

Stellaris is a beautiful, busy space adventure that rewards you as much for careful, considered strategy as it does for building a 40-ship fleet as early as possible and going ham on anything with more than one pair of eyes.

Stellaris is a personal favorite, and it's great to see it make the leap to Xbox One, but Paradox and its partners could really seal the deal by bringing across mouse support, which the Xbox One now has. Hopefully we'll see it materialize down the line, but for now, the gamepad controls are pretty great as is.

This is the best 4x game to grace the current generation of consoles, possible the best 4x game to grace any generation of consoles; but that's kind of like winning a race when you were the only genuine competitor. It still suffers greatly from a frustrating mid-game but if you've got the itch to explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate on a console this will scratch it.

While it's more than a little weird to play such an outdated version of the game, Stellaris is always an interesting and deep, not to mention surprising, 4X game to pick up. In addition to that, it doesn't have much of a competition on consoles.

The only offering of its ilk on PS4, Stellaris: Console Edition squeezes a galaxy of emergent strategy, discovery and story onto Sony's home console with very little compromise. Stellaris is certainly the biggest, if not one of the best pure strategy titles you can get on PS4 right now.
