Description

Eons ago the Drox ruled the galaxy through their mighty Operatives. These elite starship captains were trained to accomplish the impossible at whatever cost necessary. Whether employing stealth or brute force, they were always deadly. Using these Operatives, the Drox built a starlane system for quick travel amongst the stars, colonized and conquered millions of planets, and ruled the galaxy with an iron grip for over 100,000 years. Eventually realizing their Operatives were a threat, they attempted to assassinate all of them. They failed. The following Galactic Civil War was devastating.

Thousands of years later, the Drox are extinct, but the secretive Drox Operative guild lives on. They have learned their lesson though: loyalty to any one race is foolish. They now work for whoever can pay. And pay they do! Empires might span hundreds of planets and thousands of ships, but when a critical task arises, they still turn to an Operative.

In the new space race, the major races are scouting, colonizing, and expanding, trying to take over the galaxy by diplomacy, technology, war, or any other means their scheming minds can contemplate.

As a Drox Operative it's NOT your job to manage all of those annoying people, build thousands of buildings, play nice with your enemies, or balance the budget. It IS your job to pick the winning side and maybe even help them conquer the galaxy if you're being nice, more importantly though is to rake in as many credits as possible, well that and build the coolest, deadliest ship in the known universe. Not many screw with an Operative captaining a Dreadnaught!

  1. A space-themed hack&slash
    by apprev, France - Sep 20th 2013

    Something between Diablo/Torchlight and Escape-velocity.

    Drox Operative is nothing more than hack & slash, but space-themed:
    - Move around and do quests.
    - Choose your weapons and shoot the bad guys.
    - Loot them to improve your ship, gain levels and go killing more bad guys.

    The good points:
    - The realisation is good: no bugs, good performances, nice graphics and sounds.
    - The factions are a great idea: You have to manage your standing with other factions. This leads to victory condition others than "kill everything that moves".
    - There's more than one way to "win" (See above)
    - You can easily choose the difficulty level.
    - You can play, quit, and restart the game where you left it.

    The not-so-good:
    - Controls are a bit messy: Although it's a matter of personal opinion, I had to rebind nearly everything.
    - Like all HnS, it's very repetitive and involves a lot of grinding.
    - Except by looting some quickly obsoleted items (And by changing ship), the ways to improve yourself are quasi-inexistant.
    - Zooming-out is far too limited.

    If you like this kind of games (Din's, Diablo, , you can buy it without risking to be disappointed.

    There's some nice ideas, the game is stable and looks nice, but otherwise, and although it's fun to play for some time, the replayability is not great.
