Space Rangers is one part strategy game, one part adventure game, and one part space simulation. It has received very good reviews (85% overall average making it one of the highest rated PC games of the last couple of years).
As Gaming Trends put it:
There is not a single second wasted in the entirety of the game and there is no mistaking it for a small game. Space Rangers 2 is epic in scope, gargantuan in size, and goes so far beyond fun it borders on ridiculous. I am absolutely drunk in love with this magnificent title and have forced myself to finish this review just so I can get back to saving the universe - with a little pillaging on the side.
At the heart of the game is a turn-based space combat and trade game in which players fly between star systems with cargo, fighting pirates, or helping defend the galaxy from a new alien menace known as the Dominators.
What makes Space Rangers 2 special is simply the scale of it. The galaxy is alive with activity. There is so much to do. There's adventure, there's mini-games, there's role playing, there's...well everything.
As one review puts it "Heck, just buy this game and kick back for one of the wildest and most fun rides you will have all year on the PC."
