Quoted from Reach for the Stars Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Reach for the Stars reviews & previews
"With the amount of 4X games on the market today, it's important for a title to feature enough innovations to sufficiently stand out from the crowd. While Reach For the Stars hardly offers any new ideas in the thematic department, its purely turn-based execution and subtle nuances will surely allow for a great number of individually tailored strategies to emerge within its already burgeoning fanbase. Its slick, futuristic visuals nicely complement its competently executed gameplay, which is provided with enough variety to satisfy gamers for a long while. Combined with such powerful touches as the Editor and the Random Map Generator, Reach For the Stars works hard to satisfy most any 4X fan, and will surely be a name to watch for in the coming months."
"All of Reach for the Stars' elements are well done, but the game is hurt by its simplicity. While an attempt to reduce micromanagement is admirable, ease of use should be balanced with depth, which is lacking here. Still, many of the scenarios are fun, full of scripted events and surprises. As such, novice conquerors may find Reach for the Stars an excellent introduction to the genre. Experienced rulers of the universe might also enjoy Reach for the Stars for a while, but will find themselves turning to more complex titles in the long run."
"This iteration of the game keeps the addictive flavor of the first while improving the interface immensely. "
"Four gamers can take a shot at Internet galactic supremacy, but to be honest, the game is a bit long for multiplayer...Each turn is serious's a speck too simple..."
"Reach For The Stars has the genre firmly within its grasp, and we are all the better for it. Potential competitors will have to grapple with the theory of relativity because everything they do will be compared to this game, and it is already light-years ahead. On the other hand, if Roger and Ian are working on a sequel ... well, there's a wish for the next shooting star."
