Star Control: Origins Review

7.6 Total Score
Very Good

Star Control: Origins successfully grasps the perfect balance of serious and silly while making an engaging universe that’s fun to explore. It's like a bigger, better, modernized version of Star Control 2 and the developers at Stardock did an amazing job. They completely captured the feeling of the original and everything you'd expect from a Star Control game is here including the awesome music, funny/crazy alien races with voice acting, ship melee battles, resource collecting, ship upgrades, and much more. SC manages reinvigorate many elements of classic gameplay into a much more modern form whilst still managing to be fun and enjoyable to play. Space exploration has been enhanced to make the galaxy feel and look lived in with alien ships moving around doing their thing. If you were a fan of Star Control, or any other of the myriad of games it was inspired by or that it inspired, this game is more than worth the money.
