The Game Review
Star Traders: Frontiers is only available in single-player mode. At the main menu, the game offers campaign mode where players are initially required to create and customize their own characters and select a specific role for them as part of the crew. There are numerous characters available to choose from including Tracker, Spy, Explorer, Mo, and Pirate to name a few.
Each of these roles has specific attributes and skills. In addition, they can form alliances or cause hostilities with other characters. For example, Pirates are generally skilled at ambushing merchants and smugglers thereby looting ships that can help them gain some serious profits. Once the character customization is complete, the players have to select a specific faction to join in order to form and maintain alliances with other members who can help them grow in terms of economy and trade.
The game begins as players are required to complete different missions and tasks. Players are also required to maintain and manage their crew by leveling them up with the experience they gain. Each crew member can be assigned with different talents and abilities which can in-turn give the players an edge over the AI in both offense and defense.
The game is strategy and somewhat turn-based, so it does not feature any direct action. The players simply navigate their ships on the given map and strategically form alliances or attack other ships in order to complete the tasks. One of the main distinguishing features of the game is how flexible it is to play which enhances the gaming experience. Star Traders: Frontiers allows its players to completely remodel the map by creating one for themselves altogether.
The game enables players to control different aspects of the map during creation such as its size and density. Moreover, the game also allows players to customize the ships that they control. There are more than 300 upgrades available that can be purchased using the in-game currency that the players own. These upgrades are used to raise the overall statistics of the ship including its weapons and armor.
Overall, Star Traders: Frontiers is a very complicated game. Although most of its gameplay takes place in a 2D environment, the game itself requires a lot of thinking to come up with the appropriate strategy in order to win. Naturally, the gameplay is also an advanced one as players are required not only to keep their individual characters in check but also maintain the entire crew and the ship itself in order to achieve their goals by competing against other factions.
