100 Word Review - #T21 - Gratuitous Space Battles

The battles aren't even that gratuitous.

Genre - Strategy, Indie, Simulation

Metascore - 72%

Developer Positech Games

Other Games by Developer - N/A

Tom's Playtime - 2.4 hours

I saw GSB on sale once and thought “that looks interesting.” Conversely, GSB is one of the least engaging “games” that I've ever seen. The idea is that you design your own spaceships using a plethora of different components, before assembling a fleet to take on each level. Interaction stops here as the only option during battles is to watch in ecstasy or exasperation. I imagine GSB is enjoyable if you're persistent enough to decipher the egregious amount of mathematics involved in making anything decent, but it failed to give me any reason to want to do so.

Tom's Score - 4/10
