Stellaris - Analysis
A light transition
Stellaris: Console Edition brings us to consoles a title already created on PC. For this, it brings us in an earlier version that will be updated, little by little, until it is on par with its computer variant. Your various DLCs will also be added gradually .
The graphic quality is very normal, without too many pretensions. It certainly doesn't lose quality with the platform transition, due in part to this lack of exaggerated quality elements, such as spawning a battle or ship animations. This does not mean that the design is bad, on the contrary, there is an exaggerated amount of alien species, different types of ships depending on the species, cities, etc. Stellaris is fluent in the console without frame drops, or problems related to this matter.
We have ambient music inspired by space, we have the possibility to pause it or choose themes, even put it in random mode. Basically so that we have a little musical background in our early Stellaris stages, which helps us get into our intergalactic role, although in the end it is that kind of music that ends up tiring.
Regarding the adaptation of the controls, a priori it is good to say that the work of the team in this sense is noticeable. It is not easy to make the use of the controller viable in games like Stellaris. However, the interface and controls are well taken , obviously it is not the same control or fluidity that a keyboard and a mouse offers, but it is enough to make it playable. It must be said, on the other hand, that to become a master of managing our civilization we need to spend a lot of time with it.
An overwhelming level of detail
The good? Stellaris gives us so much customization and ways to play that we have to fill in as many hours as we want and more . It is true that there is no campaign mode like in Total War, Warcraft, etc. But with the aforementioned customization and the different approaches with which to undertake our task, in addition to the possibility of generating huge maps, it is not that you need it. We have not seen the multiplayer option yet, although we assume that lovers of "cakes" between friends will have to wait for the most advanced updates.
To start we can choose an empire already created with its good and bad things or ... create our own empire of super aggressive space peacocks (it's just a suggestion). After choosing the entire compendium of features, traditions and other elements, we will embark on our adventure through the domination of the stars. For this Stellaris expands our options regarding Total War, not everything is the path of war, and taking it to a more diverse terrain, as in Civilization, peace, technology, alliances, subjugation ...
Of course, all these modifications have their costs. The interface is saturating, if you are new . Numbers, resources and problems, data everywhere. Stellaris plunges us into information and therefore if it does not convince us at first it is difficult for us to dedicate the number of hours it takes to understand everything and make the most of it. It is not only a problem of this Console Edition, but having to use the command, and even with the pause mode, makes it even more tedious, for example by having to select more than one unit.
The rest of the gameplay is based on a lot of management , we have an empire and we have to legislate it. There is not as much micromanagement as in other titles, you do not have to control many small units, but you do have to be aware of many variables. The combat is automatic, we just have to send our armies towards the enemy and they are already getting ready . This is a double-edged blade, as we have no control over the troops like in other types of RTS. Invasions, bombardments and the whole war theme is quite complex, assault units and ships are needed, both transport and war, and if the enemy has too many defenses, a long period of siege, which your rival can use to send a force support. This complexity does not have to be bad, it is a hallmark, and incidentally it encourages the rest of the domination options.
The technologies are very important , there are many and we have to choose the ones we want to investigate as they will unlock better buildings, abilities, collection bonuses and improvements for ships. For almost any tactic we want to put into action we are going to need to make use of these technologies. They will also help us expand, very important in Stellaris, as resources are scarce and your influence may quickly fall. All this together adds to the traditions, which will support the base of our culture and the factions that will emerge in our empire.
One of the most surprising things is the variety of options within diplomacy , from giving up planets to proclaiming rivalries or sharing technologies. Even when declaring war, because when we start it we will have to select the objectives that we intend to achieve with that conflict. Of course Stellaris also gives us options of alliances, federations or vassalage and in them our opportunities of domination rest.
With the federation of empires they also release more options within customization. Basically we can already modify our ships, being able to create different variables from the same units for different purposes (probably one of the most expensive learning curves in the game). In a federation this menu is opened to us but with the ships of the entire federation, in this way Stellaris gives us almost almost absolute control over all matters of the game. Trade agreements are an important engine of the game, as they need to be renewed from time to time and can give you a considerable amount of resources, especially if you choose to have a trade emporium.
There are many ways to achieve victory in Stellaris and it is the most fascinating, since it makes a strategy game rich in that very thing, strategies.

Claudio ChianeseStellaris - Review
It is said that the great Alexander, who came to the shores of the Indian Ocean, wept because there was nothing left to conquer. And we strategy players, who ha...
And it is also a strange genre, on closer inspection: chock full of small products, some even tiny indies, often packed more with good will than expertise. There are so many that it is really difficult to keep track of them, even for a fan. And, perhaps, it is not even worth it, because the truly remarkable ones can be counted on the fingers of one hand (alien, with a dozen prehensile appendages): the saga of Galactic Civilizations, Sins of a Solar Empire, Endless Space, Distant Worlds , to want to be generous Stardrive 2 and Sword of the Stars ... and then there are the great classics released in the archaeological era, such as Master of Orion 2 and Space Empires 4.
In short, after a valid, but not extraordinary, Galactic Civilizations 3, I must admit that I have lost some faith in the genre. Not so much in its foundations of gameplay, which I always find fun, but in the ability of the developers to offer something really new. Here, I said to myself, it would take a courageous software house, with a lot of ideas and the technical means to carry them out ... it would take Paradox. Apparently, in the cold lands of Sweden there is a Santa Claus who rewards good players, and here I find myself in the hands of a spatial strategy that is ambitious to say the least.
Stellaris ... believe me, it is not easy to tell you about it, because it is one of the biggest games I have ever tried. As big as Warhammer's space ships: systems, subsystems, weapons to the teeth, all wrapped in glorious baroque hull. I've played Stellaris for fifty hours, and I think I've seen a maximum of two thirds of what the game has to offer. So in short, it would take a book.
Let's start from the basics, meanwhile. Stellaris is a real time strategy with active break, just like Europa Universalis or Distant Worlds. A widely tested formula, which works, but which, in my opinion, will always remain shorter.
Either way, you start with a planet, and go around exploring the galaxy. When suitable planets are found, they colonize, when you meet alien races you fight or join forces, you collect resources, you search for technologies. And so far, all already seen. The devil, however, is in the details and Stellaris is a game made up of millions of details.
The choice of empire to play with, for example. Well, you say, there will be the race of scientists, that of warriors, the usual race ... but no. There are six types, from mammals to fungoids, each with a bunch of different species. However, initially they are only aesthetic wraps: they must be personalized, choosing a series of genetic traits.
Do we want aliens who live hundreds of years? The ultra-intelligent ones? Those who adapt to the most impervious planets? It can be done. But genetics are not enough to define a breed. There is also society: and, in fact, after packaging our insectoids, we must choose some ethical guidelines. Spiritual or materialistic? Militarists? Maybe better fanatic militarists, because the galaxy is a dangerous place.
Adam ZechenterStellaris review - Paradox conquers space
The review was based on the PC version.
Space has been fascinating for a long time. Bookstores are full of science fiction, and Hollywood regularly releases adaptations of the genre's classics. Who knows, maybe thanks to the genius Elon Musk and his company SpaceX, tourist space travel will soon become a reality? For now, we are left with dreams, books ... and games.
Stellaris is the latest creation from Paradox. The Swedes, known for their extensive strategic productions, ventured out into unknown waters for the first time in a long time. As a result, based on their previous experience and successful solutions, they created a great 4X space strategy. The game is a bit lacking in the ideal, but knowing the habits of the studio and the ingenuity of the creators of fan modifications, its weaknesses will soon be eliminated. And then ... tune in for a nightcap, because now Stellaris is a time eater!
Children of the cosmos
The fun in Stellaris begins with the creation of the race. The choice of various types of features of our species, ethics or political system is very important, because it strongly influences the further game. For example, if we bet on spiritual xenophiles, we will not be able to use slave labor. The way they travel through the galaxy is also an important differentiating factor between races: there are three different methods available, each with their own pros, cons and peculiarities. The fact that we create the race ourselves works well with the actual gameplay, which is randomly generated. When designing the game, the Swedes did not have their hands tied to historical realities, so each time we get different maps, competition or neighbors. Even scientific discoveries are random to some extent, there is never certainty in which direction we are going and where we will end up with our civilization. It is this element of unpredictability characteristic of Paradox games, which - although it has been minimized - has not completely disappeared. And good.
I love the early part of each game about Stellaris . We start on our home planet, but quite quickly we start exploring and then colonizing the nearest celestial bodies - at first only those that have a climate suitable for our subjects, but with time scientific discoveries allow us to settle and terraform previously unfriendly places. Until now, in Paradox games, the exploration aspect was not particularly extensive (e.g. in Universalis Europe it was to some extent colonizing the New World). In Stellaris , especially in the beginning, it plays a big role and is a lot of fun. Thanks to this, we not only get to know the closest planetary systems, which allows us to extract their raw materials. By the way, we also discover various anomalies, which are a kind of micro-history, and sometimes even the equivalent of RPG tasks, when we have to choose one of several options, and their consequences can be significant . In this way, we learn about the galaxy's past, quite remarkable and kept in the atmosphere of hard science fiction, which shows that, giving up a realistic historical background, Paradox did not cut itself off from the scientific approach to the subject of its games.
The final frontier
At some point, our empire cannot develop freely anymore - civilizations of rival races appear beyond its borders. Then the game goes to the middle phase. From now on, diplomacy plays a greater role, initially not very important. We also stop managing our planets ourselves - like Crusader Kings from the capital, we can only administer a few globes and when we exceed this limit, we are severely punished. The solution is to create sectors that can aggregate many celestial bodies and are guided automatically. Our role is then limited to appointing the administrator and the overall direction of development (e.g. research or crystal mining). In this way, the tedious micromanagement of individual planets has been minimized - and we have dozens of those on a large map at some point.
Moving slowly to the final stage of the game, we clash with other civilizations (or create federations), colonize other planets and face various crises. The latter include, for example, an artificial intelligence rebellion (with an obvious and not the first reference to the Battlestar Galactica series ) or struggles with factions that are emerging in our empire. They mainly include conquered races, but also separatists from one of the planets far from the center. This problem can be solved as I did in my aggressive empire - I have made all new inhabitants slaves. Unfortunately, such a decision had some consequences - shackles are not conducive to intellectual work, so at some point my fungoid prisoner overseers began to lag behind the level of scientific development from other civilizations ... challenges.
Inefficient galactic bureaucracy
Ironically, the biggest problem I have with Stellaris is that in a game where AI can rebel against its creators, the enemy's AI turns out to be quite passive . In the few dozen hours I have spent with the game, only once has my rivals declared war on me. Such passivity has its advantages (undisturbed expansion in the early stage of the game is undeniable), but if you count on this injustice, which is a feature of other works of the Paradox (e.g. vassal rebellion, alliance reversal or sudden loss of hard-earned stability), then start immediately at higher difficulty levels. Add to that the fact that sometimes it's hard to make a pact, and you get fewer and fewer anomalies and the resulting events in the mid-game, meaning periods where there is simply little going on. Sectors manage themselves, peaceful civilizations do not want to enter into alliances against our enemies, and all the interesting events of the early game have already taken place. Then the aforementioned crises make the difference - but I believe that there are too few of them in the current version. I would like to point out that this problem is more bothersome on larger maps - I did not feel it so much on smaller ones.
Strategy with a capital S.
I must confess - I was not sure for a long time what rating to give Stellaris . On the one hand, it is a 4X space strategy as addictive as a black hole and as innovative as Elon Musk's visions. I had a great time with it and I know that I will come back to it many times. In addition, this production can boast of atmospheric music like that of Interstellar (cosmic electro, which is perfect for reading SF literature - I tested it!) And colorful graphics, with a lot of details visible in the close-ups. Stellaris also proves that the Swedish company is effectively moving towards simplifying the operation of its big strategy games , which is a good sign in the context of the upcoming Hearts of Iron IV . An example would be the spacecraft design system - we can develop them ourselves or rely on automatic solutions that do quite well.
