    Looks and sounds awesome but I could see the trial and error aspect getting rather tedious.

    Already have it due to pre-ordering, they let you in the beta.

    It's fricking excellent.

    as the review states, it's beta, they may help with that before it's released.

    I have to hand it to them, the name describes EXACTLY what the game is.

    The cover title and one of the menu items in the article navigation erroneously say "gratitious" BTW.

    You spelled gratuitous wrong like 7 times. Do a find and replace "gratitious"->"gratuitous" for your front page, links, and title headers.

    "gratitious" describes Mankz's wallpapers.

    It definitely sounds promising but yeah I agree with less trial and error.

    Pedant stars for you all, and a whack with the edit stick for all of who missed my glaring spelling mistakes!

    I was looking at this game before, but wasnt really sure what it was, but this review explained it to me, so I bought it in the end. Not really had much time to play it yet.
    Things I like about it is the way I can tweek the ships and they do their thing like little autonomous ships, and there's no messing about with turn based stuff like GalCiv, I really liked the ship design in that game, but not keen on turn based games any more, I prefer things happening in "real time", a little like watching grass grow or sim city type.
