The year 2017 is not going to be filled with a lot of 4x strategy games, so we need to cherish every title from this genre. Dawn of Andromeda, first game from the developer studio Greywolf Entertainment and published by Iceberg Interactive, is a promising space strategy game that could achieve a lot. Unfortunately, it falls short of that goal as it is now.
Dawn of Andromeda has just left the early access phase, but in fact it is still in dire need of polishing. The game itself resembles a lot to Stellaris, being a real time game with option to pause and give orders to your colonies and ships. Sadly, it turned out to be somewhat bland, lacking substance to make it a long term fun experience we hoped it to be…
It is hard to pinpoint exactly what is wrong with the game. Generally, one might say that the orientation within the UI is somewhat lacking. After playing dozens of 4x titles throughout the years, I should have been able to find my way around the many production, research and military design tabs.
Overall, this game is showing a lot of promise, but right now it is still mediocre. Watch the videos for specific gameplay experience!
Dawn of Andromeda is a promising indie title venturing into real time, 4x space strategy genre. It is a good game, but it lacks a certain polish and depth the lovers of this genre are accustomed to. With some tweaks to the UI and improvements to the AI, this could become a very good game. So far, it is just a good 4x title with potential to be more.
