Stellar Frontier is a multiplayer, real-time, 2D action game that looks and plays a lot like a souped-up version of the classic game Asteroids. The player commands a ship from one of three civilizations (the Humans, Arceans, or Drengin) that battles the other two species for control of space. Players can engage in ship to ship combat, or fight epic battles in an effort to take over other species' colony worlds. Ships can be upgraded by finding salvageable debris, or using the bounty money gained by destroying enemy vessels. The game is going to be featured on Stardock's Drengin.net, a service that will allow you to download and play games for a set annual or monthly fee. Currently, you can download the game for free, but there are some premium functions that give paying customers a mild advantage.

Rating: (It's free...)

It's hard to complain about anything that can be played for free, but I'm going to go ahead and try. It certainly doesn't take long to learn enough to get into the action. On the other hand, this is minorly multiplayer Asteroids. Asteroids was a fun game if you were looking to drop a quarter in the arcade, and Stellar Frontier is fun for a few moments at a time. So, unless you think Asteroids (the classic arcade version) was the greatest invention since fire, this game is unlikely to hold your attention for long.

Stellar Frontier just isn't to my taste.
