Space Engineers is an open world sandbox game defined by creativity and exploration. It is a sandbox game about engineering, construction, exploration and survival in space and on planets. Players build space ships, wheeled vehicles, space stations, planetary outposts of various sizes and uses (civil and military), pilot ships and travel through space to explore planets and gather resources to survive. Featuring both creative and survival modes, there is no limit to what can be built, utilized and explored. Space Engineers features a realistic, volumetric-based physics engine: everything in the game can be assembled, disassembled, damaged and destroyed. The game can be played either in single or multiplayer modes. Volumetric objects are structures composed from block-like modules interlocked in a grid. Volumetric objects behave like real physical objects with mass, inertia and velocity. Individual modules have real volume and storage capacity.

Review from Steam

Love the game,
I plummet down to earth and immediately start gathering rocks, I use the rocks to build a base and build the base to mine the rocks so I can use the rocks to build a vehicle to go mine the rocks to bring back to the base, I build a detctor to find different rocks to build more tech to collect rocks faster. Basically just rock gathering and developing better tech to gather rocks faster to build faster and so on

Review from Steam

started on a planet with a base
investigate mysterious signal
get shoes. cool
pirate destroys my life support while I was gone. The med bay and both cryo pods
kill it with a grinder ship
grinder ship flips upside down
there are no thrusters to flip it back up
can't build thrusters. I need to "research" them first
use mine ship to get mats to for research
frantically flies over to iron because pirates can attack any minute
realizes too late that my ship is flipping upside down
mine ship flips upside down
great. I'll to it by hand then
grabs iron and jetpacks back to base because im getting tired of all this shit
crashes into pillar and dies because I was low health because my life support was destroyed and I cant repair it because I have to research it because a ship shot a bullet at it because I investigated a loot box
cant respawn back to base because cyro pods are destroyed
spawns in a parachuting buggy on a different planet.
ok cool I start fresh
drives in circles because there's a 10m life pod signal near me but the beacon stays in the corner of the screen for some reason
so where the fuck is this signal coming from?
drives backward into a cactus
buggy flips upside down
guess what
10/10 best upside down simulator

Review from Steam

If you're on the fence about buying space engineers, don't be. This is genuinely the most fun I've had in a sandbox game ever. I'm sure the survival for this game is amazing, but honestly I've played for near 100 hours in creative and have not gotten bored. Admittedly, the vanilla game pve can get a little boring but the mods are a huge help. This game can exist as a pve game, a ship/ base/rover builder, and a survival game all in one, and its great. Buy this game.

Review from Steam

A review long due as I have now past 1800 hrs at the counter.
Is this game flawless ? no, clearly not.
Is there a narrative or enticing story ? Not in the vast majority of the play through, Mind there is several scenarios offered, two to cover the basic game play loops.
Is it an hard core survival game ? Nope, it's actually not the focus of the game.
It's an open sandbox games, with basic industrial gameplay loop and building.
It's a lego/minecraft where you can make space ships,rovers, building on ground, in space, on asteroid.
This game clearly speaks to some people, whenever there is a hitch to create, pilot and explore. It poses some entertaining challenges to the player (design, functionality, make it more functional, better etc) and can entice them for hours at end...
IF and only IF it speak to the player fiber and imagination as it cover SF, space and building ship, that you can create your own goals and motivations. It's really similar in concept to Minecraft which have no real goal.
There is also a vast community of modders which bring add on to the game or expand on some concepts/game play loop which are not covered by the vanilla game. There is mulitplayers option (server or local coop), which can be also a good entertainment, if you find a server and community, which really increased my play time.
Yes, it can be improved, yes the software developers are not the most charismatic or really engaging their community. There is some challenges but this games had some work being done in term of optimization. I clearly saw it in term of stability and speed, Keen has done some works, not everything is DLC based and all the major features are released for free alongside the DLC.
Let's be honest, I have obtained a really good value for money for almost 2000 hrs of entertainment. There is only one other games which pull me into this many hours and that was NeverWinter Night, an online small community real Role Playing game.
For me, for some fellows which share the same touch of imagination and self motivation to create. I entirely understand it's not for everyone. If I have one regret, it's lack of polishing in some directions which would have make it a better games instead of an excellent niche product.
