  1. Good, but still needs a little more
    by GodfreySBen, Ireland - Apr 12th 2019

    The early game in Stellaris is the best of any strategy game I've ever played. The feeling of exploration as your science ships chart new solar systems and relay their adventures back to you is just magical. Sadly, once you reach the mid-game you are unable to explore further due to being boxed in, and there's little left to do other than go to war with your neighbours. Patches and DLC have addressed the mid-game lull to some extent, but it still feels a bit bare compared to Paradox's other excellent strategy games.

    That being said, the New Horizons mod turns Stellaris into the best Star Trek game ever made. Trekkies should get the game just for that.

  2. Fun but needs the expansions
    by Rogier Flikweert, Netherlands - Jan 14th 2019

    Stellaris is a good foundation for a game, but needs the expansions and updates. The dev's keep working on it and bring out a lot of DLC (like we are used to from Paradox).

  3. Quite Good
    by b00p, USA - Nov 12th 2018

    A great mixture of Crusader Kings and UEIV with some streamlining to make it more palatable for durps like me who just can't deal with CKII's style (or lack thereof.) Not perfect, and DLC policy notwithstanding, this is a unique and great space empire sandbox and well worth your time if you're into this sort of thing. Be prepared to shell out for the DLC tho.
