Review this game
Stellaris is a 4x grand strategy game from Paradox. So I kind of expected a Civilization in space kind of game (Like Galactic Civilization 3) which isn't a bad thing since I love 4x games. But what I got was something different; a 4x, grand strategy, customizable, nearly open-ended RPG. And that is where this game sets itself apart from all others in the 4x field.

  • Create race of aquatic dwelling collectivist-militants. Military dictatorship, obviously.
  • Venture forth into space, everything is new and exciting.
  • Encounter space ameobas. Get wrecked.
  • Rebuild fleet, mark off that section of space "off limits" for now.
  • Continue making breakthroughs in laser weapon technology.
  • Encounter another spacefaring race. Seems freindly enough.
  • They put up an outpost near my empire.
  • Declare war.
  • Vassalize the pathetic alien infidels with my rebuilt fleet.
  • Kill space ameobas. Discover another intelligent race on a planet.
  • They are in the post industrial stage. Not quite able to harness the power of the atom.
  • built an orbital research station over their planet
  • study them
  • figure out some new things about biology
  • decide that the research would be quicker if we were a bit more aggressive
  • begin abducting them for research
  • few years later, realize that the planet would be a good source of slaves. and the best way to get them to willingly accept my rule would be to infiltrate their society
  • send agents down
  • everything was goes well
  • things are falling into place... until one of my operatives turned on me
  • one of my cells went dark. a team discovered the bodies. it was definitely one of my own that killed them
  • he contacts me a month later. explaining that he had fallen in love with the alien culture, and a woman
  • says we should dismantle the orbital station and leave this planet alone
  • disagree. but as long as he was willing to stay in exile, let him live. it's the least I could do for his service
  • sadly, he did not
  • he begins hunting my operatives. trying to expose us on the planet
  • this is unacceptable
  • pull remaining operatives. would rather kill all of these filthy aliens before allowing another of our kind die
  • bringl in a small fleet of warships and initiated orbital bombardment
  • brutally destroying the cities beneath them
  • there were no survivors
10/10 would commit mass xenocide again.
